Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect yard vac Had originally purchased a smaller shop vac and got home to discover it had the skinny suction hose. Great for the car and in the house, but not for picking up debris n the outside porch. Bought the Ridgid 12 gallon and it did everything I needed done outside. A real winner in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIDGID vacuums are the only ones I will ever buy. I’ve used a lot of different vacuums in construction and personal use and RIDGID are the only ones that keep up no matter new or old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well but a dry/wet vac and no wet filter? Replaced a very old craftsman dry/wet vac. Ridgid worked fine. Did what it is supposed to do, pick up dry dirt and water. My first issue is you would think you’d get a dry and wet filter, not just dry. The directions say (if I understand correctly) that you can use the dry filter to pick up water measuring no more than 2” inside the drum. HELLO! I would brake out paper towel to pick up that small amount of water and not a wet vac. The directions also make it sound like you can just remove the dry filter and go without a wet filter to pick up water but I don’t think that’s a good idea and since they do sell wet filters for it, I’m assuming Ridgid would agree. My old craftsman came with both filters but we’re talking something I bought over 16 years ago. My second issue is more just a concern of how long the locking tabs that connects the hose and extension wand pieces together will last before they crack. Otherwise I would recommend this dry/wet vac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product- 12 gal size is a good size This is a good product. A couple of simple small parts need to screwed on- easy. In my opinion, it’s the perfect size, it’ll handle small and big jobs. Five hp provides great suction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase In Awhile My first Rigid product but will not be my last. This thing is just awesome, i had my garage cleaned up in no time. I did find the bags expensive, but that is my only complaint.
