Rated 4 out of 5 by Oppie Wet dry vac
The thing that I must say is, The suction hose and attachments are BIG, FAT, ROUND, and after using the vacuum on wet floor many, many hours, your hands become tired, of holding those FAT attachments. It has great sucking power, and did a good of getting the water out of the basement carpets after our water heater decided to split apart. What a (Fricken) mess. That is why my ratings are average for, Ease of use. Maybe add a handle to the one attachment used mostly (extension). As far as Durability, I can only go by the name RIDGID a tool I have used for over 45 years. Thank you and keep on improving... Glenn

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ajeepthing91 great suction and capacity, but top is too loose when transporting.
I bought this based on the great reputation and personal experience with Ridgid tools. The motor has shut off on me abruptly twice so far in the 2 different times I have used it. Don't know why, but it wasn't under a load either. After a couple of minutes it comes back on. The top fits loosely when attached to the lower piece. But it holds great suction when on. If it shuts off on me again, I will be taking this back where I got it. Hopefully it doesn't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cobra2 I am not impressed with some of the design changes!
THE HOSE LATCHES ARE NOT REALLY AN IMPROVEMENT! The new filter attachment method wasn't necessary; the old way was fine! I have not had to change the filter as yet. Change for the sake of change never really did impress me! The vacuum is quieter than my old one of the same size. I bought this one because I needed a new hose & other attachments & as these parts were at least 60% of a new unit with the necessary parts that I needed; I purchased this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beejer47 Good tool/appliance; essential in a garage or shop
Very much like the shopvac...used to have a larger Ridgid shopvac lasted many years...particularly like the bag that goes into the tank for dry stuff and dust.
