Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent product. The Rigid worked great. My kitchen carpet was soaked due to a leaking dishwasher and the Rigid got the water all out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the blower air power is very sufficient and quieter than my last vac/blower combo the vac/blower unit is overall of good design. The leaf blower cfm is good and design of unit makes it easy to handle when operating and storing. I have yet to check out the vac options but see that they are well designed. The vac hose diameter is larger than my ones from the past so restrictions will be minimal. Perhaps the hose could have been a little longer and store better on the unit, otherwise overall it is a good purchase. I would like to see Ridgid come out with an upholstery and carpet spot cleaning system which will store and generate instant hot water for cleaning. No one has to date. A best seller in my opinion. You need HOT water(along with other specifics) to clean our soft furnishings well. I'll even help design it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A reliable wet/dry vacuum I recently purchased the 12 Gallon / wet/dry Vac for the garage it was simple to assemble and it works very well great for the garage , I recommend this vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product functions really well. The Rigid HD12000 wet/dry vac operates at peak performance thoughout it's use with heavy shredded materials and dirt as well as with fluids and the attachments fit well. My only drawback was the purchase didn't have all the necessary hardware inside to complete the assembly for retaining the hose attachment and Customer Service is a bit awkward in handling the replacement process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid vac with great suction Great product...I use for shop dust collection...had to put braces in the dust bin so it doesn’t cave in on itself...very powerful. Not as quiet as I thought it would be but it’s certainly acceptable for what it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONE OF THE BEST SHOP VACS EVER! 12 Gal. 6.0-Peak HP NXT Wet/Dry Vac with Detachable Blower made by RIDGID I was in need of a shop vac for the garage and the house, so when Home Depot offered this 12 Gallon 6.0 Peak HP Wet/Dry Vac I was all over it. I ordered it, and it was promptly shipped. Although the box was opened on one end (tampered with. Tape was cut), no items were damaged or missing. When I opened the box, all I could say was "WOW!" I was jumping for joy I was so blessed. First off, the product is all quality. The vacuum is very well made. The vacuum comes with two (2) extension wands, blower wand, car nozzle, utility nozzle, wet nozzle, a quick lock filter, filter bag, tug along positive locking hose with dual flex. The body of the vacuum is strong, and sturdy. There are four Caster Feet that are equipped with storage holders for the wands. Each Caster Foot has a wheel that is well protected. Assembly is simple as the feet lock into position and they are held in place by a simple Philips Screw that can be attached by screwdriver or through a drill with chuck AT LOW SPEEDS. On the back of the body, locks in the accessory caddy. This holds the nozzles and also a wand. The top which holds the motor assembly locks on the body with a strong seal. When the vacuum is turned on, the top sits down and the suction is absolutely the strongest I have ever seen! You can choose to use just the filter, or the filter with the filter bag. The bag is easy to install. The positive lock hoses are awesome! No need to worry about hoses coming apart. The lock tabs prevent this completely. AWESOME! The top also serves as a reversible blower unit. The Extension Wands easily lock into place and you attack the blower wand and you have a blower unit to clear out your garage or leaves on the walk. Awesome! You can also use it to dry up water on a concrete floor once you suck up all excess water. The chord is long and has a nice reach. It coils up on the side of the vacuum and does not interfere at all. The hose easily raps around the unit and is held in place easily. I am absolutely stoked over this vacuum. This is the best shop vac I have ever owned and I have no qualms in saying so! I highly recommend this vacuum. You will not be disappointed. The better part is that RIDGID offers a whole host of accessories, tubing, filters, and more for this model so you can customize to your needs. AWESOME!!! I rate this Vacuum 10*s out of 5. It is that good. Thank you RIDGID for offering this vacuum to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MAJOR FLAW This unit clearly outlines optional accessories on RIGID Model product page to include a VF3502 Replacement Filter Bag (2). I I went to install the filter bag I purchased at HD and ??? It wont take them! If you go to the VF3502 specs it says... NOT for WD1280! I would not have purchased this unit without the ability add a bag. I am on my way up to Home Depot to correct the issue if possible. Wast of time, money, and confidence. Maybe Rigid will send me a new replacement- Will update later.

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.
