Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum Good light weight vacuum. Suction is very good. The filters are larger and better. Registering the product on your website was very confusing for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly perfect... This shop-vac is infinitely better than our last one which groaned its final groan and had to be replaced. GREAT suction, and as a blower is more than adequate. The only design feature I would change is the hose clips on the sides of the motor assy. The straight extensions stowed on any of the four "feet" are right where the hose is directed when it's in the clips so the hose pushes against the attachments. A slight change in the angle at which these clips are mounted would remedy this minor annoyance. Knowing this, would I still buy it again? Yep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many improvements over previous versions of the vac The improvements to this vacuum over previous versions are fantastic. From the locking hoses and attachments to the handle on top to the excellent castor wheels to the very large and easy to use on/off switch these improvements make using the vacuum very easy, and convenient. Great job Rigid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. Works hard. My vac is one year old this month. I've put mine through more than a few 12 hour days of near constant use and it keeps performing. I had one issue where a foam strip that was glued inside the motor housing came out. It did not affect performance. I use ear plugs if I'm going to use the unit for more than a few minutes. It never was very quiet. Customer service was great. I recommend this product.
