Rated 5 out of 5 by NickK Powerful, light, easy to use
Light and uses same opening for wet or dry. Although if picking up a lot of water, they do recommend removing the filter; makes sense. Everything fits together and I love the large hose. Doesn't clog like a lot of other vacs. Great job Rigid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by StanF Great performance for the right price.
I purchased this unit for my home in FL from the local Home Depot after reading reviews on Amazon. All the reviews are correct, this is an excellent performing machine; and I felt that for $80 it was also a great buy. I was so impressed that the next day I went back and purchased two accessories that were also less expensive than online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marko Great value for the money
I just replaced my 38 year old Craftsman shop vac with a 12 gallon Ridgid. Very similar in performance (vacuum pickup) to the Sears but the filter/bag unit on the Ridgid much better and nicer than the Sears unit. Plus I like the onboard tool storage, Sears unit didn't have that. Additionally, cord storage on Ridgid better, well designed; on the Sears unit, not so much. So far, very happy with the Ridgid. I even got a lighted pickup tool for car use! Great thinking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by RussV Quit working in less than 20 minutes of use
Just bought. Turned it on to collect duct from wood working tools. Did not last more than 20 minutes. Return to Home Depot. Hoping it was just a dud. Trying another and it has done better, but still only for a couple days and a couple of hours actual use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gian Powerful, easy to use, but did not last 1 year.
Very happy with the unit's performance but the motor suddenly began smoking and died after 10 month's very light use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RevKev Beast of a Vacuum!
I purchased this because I had an immediate need involving 30 gallons of water in my basement ejector pump. This thing performed like a champ! It handled the water with ease!
