Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty We are a new/used car dealership and we use it for detailing. Heavy duty usage lasted us 4 years. Limited lifetime warranty is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 16 Gallon SS W/D vac with cart Very nice vacuum. The only issue I had with it was there were some small dents in the body but not a deal breaker and not worth worrying about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good vac Plenty of power and lots of capacity. Not very heavy, considering the size, so most people can carry it up and down stairs. The tool basket is a huge plus. The floor tool needs to be at the right angle for the best suction, but I am not sure how they would improve that. It would also be nice if the brush were included instead of as an extra purchase. The vac is loud, but perhaps that is necessary for the power, of which there is plenty. To park and move, the hose can be connected to two mounts at the back of the vac. I find it more convenient to pass the hose over and tie it to the tool basket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from makes clean up easy. Using with the fine dust paper bags for dry wall dust clean up. Good fit of bag to port. Like that there is no static build up on drum found with pastic drum units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I love the ease of movement, it doesn't tip over when you move, the handles are big improvement over other designs, making it easy to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wet/dry vac. After a Ridgid 16 gal vac burned out after 15+ years and motor strain (ny fault), I hit the HD to get a replacement to handle flooding in our basement. I was very impressed by it's construction and how easy it was to assemble. Looks great and performs great. Lots of improvements in 15 years. It was also a benefit that all the attachments from the old one fits the new as tne new one does not include a round brush or floor attachment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has very good suction I really like it a lot. Works well. It works well would recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems like a good product but the registration process for the lifetime warranty needs to be improved it is difficult Like I said it seems to me be a good quality product but the process to register your product for the life time warranty needs to be improved it is difficult and there seems to be problems with the page

How does this compare to the WD1956

The looks similar, same HP, etc., but this one as described as more a professional model. However the WD1956 is listed as 203 CFM, vs the 187 listed for this, and I would expect the pro model if anything to be rated higher.
Asked by: ericjs
Hello ericjs, All our vacuums are tested with the hoses included and this 1610RV Professional/Industrial vac's supplied premium hose is a little more restrictive than the black hose included in the WD1956 General Purpose wet/dry vac hence the CFM rating. However, the premium hose will allow the user of 1610RV to be more productive because of its added length and ease of use.

Only difference from WD1956

So is the hose and the color the only difference from the WD1956? Or is anything else different?
Asked by: ericjs
Hello ericjs, Another difference is that WD1956 is exclusively sold by Home Depot stores whereas this 1610RV is distributed through the Ridge Tool Company to many distributors throughout the North American countries.
