- Sturdy Cart, Push Handle and Large Rear Wheels - These features act together to allow the vac to travel easily up/down stairs and over rough terrain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri from appreciated how easy it was to use. Had a flooded basement of which I burned the motor out on my 12 gal 4.5 model of another shop vac. This new "wet-vac" was so easy and much easier to handle than the "old" one I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edina from Shop Vac use I purchased this unit in November 2016. Used it daily as a dust extraction device on my router table, and as a general duty shop vac. Suction is very good. The hose is very flexible, but sometimes disengages from the port, even though it was "locked" in place with the locking tabs. Very loud, but I always wear hearing protection Light weight and it has good maneuverability. I had to replace my original unit in March 2017 because the on/off switch stopped working. Exchange at Home Depot was, as they advertise, "Hassle Free."

Rated 5 out of 5 by MDK65 from Exceptional shop vacuum!!! After my old shop vacuum died after 12 years, I replaced it with this 14-gallon beast. It is easy to assemble, connects to my shop tools without an adapter, easily rolls without tipping over, does not require an extension cord, sucks like a Texas tornado, and for a 6.0 HP motor, it is unbelievably quiet. For the price, this vacuum is a steal!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ownthis from Up to Par??? very lite weight once out of box. wheels and mounting feel cheap. have not got into heavy use yet. Lite pickup was fine. Had to put wheels on myself and was not expecting that. Did have life time warranty which is a good thing. We will see how this turns out with time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LAJae from Just bought it and used it! Powerful and easy to set-up and use. Cannot speak to durability as have not had it that long. I went for one point less on power t get a much quieter machine. Glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigguy from Ridgid for a Hepa vac you couldn't beat the price, so far both units are working perfectly, BUT an anti static hose would have been a great option. Please see summary above, keep the good inexpensive products coming.

When should I use the VF3502 dust bags?
Are they necessary for the HEPA rating during lead paint remediation? Are they just a convenience? I assume they are good for fine dust, but not for nails and gravel.
The Hepa filter is great for really dusty jobs such as picking up dry wall compound dust and saw dust from wood working. I suppose large objects such as stones and nails could pierce your bag but I it use for every day jobs like cleaning the garage floor and in our automobiles where this problem is avoided. The main reason I use the hepa filter is that it prolongs the life of the main filter which are more expensive to replace. Hope this helped you.
