Rated 4 out of 5 by from works really well was really easy to hook up to power sanders, all the lock tabs are solid and have good positive feedback. the vacuum is quite loud, but aside from that, which is to be expected, I'm very happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a unitasker! Needed a leaf blower, didn't have a shop vac; got both in one unit. 5hp blower with a 20 foot cord does a great job on leaves, & the shop vac has good suction and lightweight portability. Would have been nice if it had come with a tool rack attached, but I can add one. Overall another solid product from Ridgid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLANT OVER ALL PRODUCT I LIVE 20 MILES OUT OF TOWN IN THE HIGH DESERT COUNTRY OF ARIZONA ON FIVE ACRES. LOTS OF WIND, DIRT & SAND. I USE ALL OF THE FUNCTIONS OF THE VAC. THE 20' CORD IS GREAT. THE BLOWER CLEARS OUR 70' PATIO OF ALL OUR ELEMENTS. IT CLEANS MY WORK SHOP AREA AND GARAGE VERY WELL. REMOVING WATER FROM OUR YARD FOUNTAIN & BIRD BATH IS VERY SIMPLE. REMOVAL OF THE FILTER COULD BE SOME WHAT SIMPLER. AT THIS POINT, OVER ALL I HAVE NO REAL COMPLAINTS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product used primarily as a wet vac I needed a way to get the final 15 gallons of water out of my hot tub each time I clean it. That is the dirtiest water left in the tub, but doesn't drain. So this solution is both efficient and thorough. However, there is one disappointment, therefore the four star rating. Although I bought the additional hose connection parts, the water will not drain from the vac via the hose, even though it is same hose that drains the tub with no problem. This is via a downslope. Most likely not enough water pressure in the 12 gal unit. I read a review that said the water can be drained via a hose up a flight of stairs. This is a mystery to me and there is nothing in the manual to support that. So when my basement floods ( about once a year) I will have to carry the unit up the stairs each time. Would love to hear any advice to solve this issue. Otherwise, a well designed unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good vac Good product but registering it was problematic. Mine is a 14 gal but there was no option for my exact model on the website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product. Used an old model of neighbor and was impressed with its power and features. I was washing my garage floor and used the neighbor's Ridgid wet-dry vac and was impressed with its design, its power, and its features. Also, my neighbor has used it for years to wet vac his interior tile floors and the machine had not lost any of its power. I went out and bought my own. I also like its versatility as a blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best vacuum I've ever owned I have owned a lot of other wet/dry vacs throughout my life but this one, hands down, beats them all. I went with the Rigid brand because my last job bought one for the site and we beat it to death and it was still going strong when I left 2 years later. This improved model has even better suction power with the added leaf/yard blower. And the leaf blower actually works pretty good. It's no gas powered, dedicated blower, but it still works really well with a decent output. A lot better than some electric yard blowers I have used. There really is nothing bad to say about this machine as they thought of everything. The caddy holds every single tool, hose, and cord. Built well with solid caster wheels that roll smooth. You can't go wrong with this thing.
