Rated 4 out of 5 by Stubs So far this product has been very good
I had one just like this one and used it for 10 yrs. I turn it off one day and it wouldn't turn back on. I took it about and verify the switch as not bad. I have no idea why it just stopped but it did. I was forced to purchase another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonSimpson Great product
I bought this vac a few weeks ago for a kitchen remodel, it was easy to put together, I'm very pleased with everything that came with it. I'm also very pleased with the power of the vac, it performs very well and is very easy to use. As for durability, I can't in good conscience give a review on that as I've only had it for a few weeks. Overall it is an awesome shop-vac that I have already recommended this product to many of my friends and family and will continue to do so. It is well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cabraltar Much better than my last vac...with the competitors name on it.
The vac works great. I'm a professional contractor, and have put it to use quite a bit. Performs flawlessly. Thanks Rigid.
P.S. I hope the "Lifetime Warranty" is as good as the vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoelM Pretty good vacuum.
I've used this shop vac for a week now and I am impressed with its utility. It's reasonably quiet, has a strong suction and was reasonably priced. How long it will last has yet to be determined. My last shop back was a Fein. It lasted 11 years before the motor self distructed. Shop vacs seem to have improved quite a bit since I last looked at them 10 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ford couldn't ask for mor
we have only had the vac for a few weeks but we are a new/used car dealership and it is going all day long(need to buy a second) without issue. I selected the Ridgid because I have had one for years at home with the detachable motor to use as a blower. It never fails and accessories are always available in store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buzzer Very Good; Could be Improved A Bit
Excellent materials and construction. "Muffler" is a plus as noise during operation is quite acceptable (i.e., not annoying). Wheels/casters system is not optimal for maneuvering around obstacles. Use of four casters would be better, but wheels facilitate positioning when stairs are involved (different floors/levels). Difficult to predict "durability" until several years have passed; hence, the 4-point rating. Formerly owned wet-dry shop vacuum was a Sears 16-gallon used weekly for 32 years - and 3 brush replacements - until the motor seized and a replacement was unavailable. Time will tell, but until then, this is a very satisfactory option with lifetime support.
