Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 Gallon Portable Pro wet/dry vac loads of power and suction, small enough to get in hard to reach places, led on nozzle is super allows me to see in dark places. July 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by compact size with good power. I have not had this product very long, but it impresses me with it's performance and portability. I am wondering though how to make it a little more stable. When vacuum pulls hard with suction, the hose contracts, pulling the vacuum towards the hose end and even off the floor. I will be looking to get a hose extension and some reach tools and some way to make it more stable. Overall, though, I am pleased with the performance for the price, and I have been a long-time fan of Rigid products. July 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This shop vac has great suction. The suction on this compact shop vac is great. The only complaint I have is that it is top heavy and will fall over easily. I can work with that considering the impressive suction. I would highly recommend it. July 4, 2015
