Rated 5 out of 5 by Jordan This product is the best Vac I have EVER OWNED!
When I was looking to purchase a vacuum I wanted the best quality for the price. The vacuum has it all. I have abused this product many times and it still holds up! The attachments havent cracked or break when being stepped on and I have dropped this vac many times from stairs up around about 4 feet and it has not been broken. SUCTION is excellent,on my job I have to suck up almost anything that is dirty, I've sucked up mud, rocks, dirt and nails and it has not lost suction or resist large jobs! With or without a filter bag duct collection is excellent, the filter does not clog up as easily as I thought it would with fine dust partials. I have bought the 20 foot Ridgid hose and that had add more versatility to my vac. I have told many of my coworkers about this vac and some have actually went to Home Depot and purchased the vac themselves and have been very pleased with their purchase! This vac has stood up to commerical use very well and would be a outstanding homeowner vacuum. I have owned many vacs in the past and they were junk to this. All of the vans I have owned have not lasted more than 8 months! This vac is almost 2 years old and still has new porformance!! Yes I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants the best for their buy at a really affordable price!! I will never buy a different vac ever again and planning buying another one this summer! Good Job Ridgid!

Product needs to come with a longer hose. Other than that works well

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnCox This is one powerful SUCKER!
I have been using the old "red and black shop vac" for many years. Recently upgraded several tools around the woodshop and the old vac just wasn't cutting it anymore when hooking the vac up to them. I wasn't familiar with Ridgid brand but seen them at Home Depot and went home and done a little online research and shopping. Decided this one sounded good, big motor, big hose, and nice accessory package included also lots of separate add on accessories. I bought it and unpacked it and was assembled within minutes with no tools. Plugged it in and had the shop clean in no time! This thing is very quiet compared to the old shop vac, power is incredible, I accidentally sucked up a couple of rags and several nuts and bolts. Easily opened and removed the rags and bolts. Has a nice long power cord, and rolls without effort around the shop. I love the hose ends that have swivel ends so your not constantly fighting the hose. Bottom line is this thing is a monster and the best $80 I have spent on tools in the shop in some time, I would and have recommended to friends. Shop no further.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mitch This is my second purchase of a Rigid wet/dry vac.
Great product. Great power. My first one lasted years before going out on me. Liked it so much, purchased another one. I saved all of the attachments from my first purchase and now I have a wand that will reach the ceiling corners of my garage.

Best shop vac for the money; plus the lifetime warranty. This thing sucks for real. My basement flooded with all the rain and I shopped vac it in 30 mins. The thing was not even full when I got done; very well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by J4D73 very satisfied with this and all of my RIDGID products!
Upgraded from a 15+ year old 6 gallon craftsman shopvac. Needed something with larger hose to hook up to router table and so far it does great at keeping the area clean. Also works great sucking up other saw dust, leaves and whatever else ends up on my garage floor.

I've only had it for two weeks for 89.00 out the door its amazing. The 6HP motor sucks up everything and it was worth every penny. Also mine came with a car tool accessories and it works great. I just wish there was a way to attach all parts to the vacuum. But very very pleased

Where do I start, I used to be a craftsman guy but I just recently made the jump to Ridgid and have not looked back. I made the jump because of the life time coverage they offer on their products. I recently purchased this vac to replace my craftsman vac that had little to no power. I am very impressed with the performance and durability of this of this vac. I use it quite a bit with all my tools and my wood working products.
