Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase. Glad I switched I owned a shopvac for years and bought a Rigid. It’s 100% better more durable easier to handle better and better suction. Never buying another brand Again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridgid plays games with Lifetime Service Agreement I have this vacuum and I have the 10 inch Professional Table saw. Ridgid is playing games with the online registration and Lifetime Service Agreement. As seen by other reviewers, even though we very carefully and completely fill-out the online forms, Ridgid comes back and says: ""...We encountered an issue when cross referencing your product and/or proof of purchase information with our records and are not yet able to upgrade your products to Lifetime Service Agreement (LSA) status.""....... That is a heck of a note.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed plus more I needed a vacuum that had a two and a half inch hose and the suction power is fantastic I'm going to have to get a crevice tool for it but otherwise it's everything I needed. I purchased the internal vacuum bag for it so it makes cleaning up of dry material easy Smitty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hate myself for not owning this sooner Bought to help clean the floors when I stained my floors. Did an excellent job and it's a dusting machine on steroids. Then pop off the top walk out the front door and blow all the leaves on to your neighborhood street.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More powerful than I thought The 12 gallon Wet/ Dry Vac is more powerful than I thought. I thought Prime Shine Car Wash has the most powerful Vacuum I ever used until I bought the Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac. I drag dirt and sand into my pickup everyday as I visit my farming customers which is why I bought the Wet / Dry Vac - to clean it out every day after I get home. I couldn't be more pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. My review is for the 12-gallon vac without the attached blower. The vacuum works very well. With the addition of a dust catch bag and smooth floor brush, cleaning up after multiple days of work on drywall/sanding was a breeze. I never noticed any dust in the air after vacuuming, which was of highest importance since we were living in the house while the drywall work and finishing was being done. The dust bag was the key, I believe. Good product.

why is the wet nozzle, blower nozzle & muffler/diffuser not included with the vac?

this vac used to come with those tools but why not anymore?
Asked by: flooramatic
Hello flooramatic, WD1280 never came with the wet nozzle, blower nozzle and muffler/diffuser. It's the WD1680 16 gallon with detachable leaf blower that comes with these items.
