Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Very Nice" worked well for picking up water. I would have given it 5 stars , but I can't understand why it would not come with bags or at least 1 bag for dry use.... I have a 12 gallon shop vac and it did supply 2 bags which was nice...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from user friendly So much easier to use in my shop than my old craftsman shop vac. Rolls easier and I love the fact the filter just pops off for quick cleaning and replacement. I recommend using a dust deputy to get more life out of the filters and protect the motor. The hose fittings could be of a better gauge of plastic as the ones that came with the shop vac are thin and could break if not used carefully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good Haven't used the product extensively, however, the time I have used it, has proven that I need a larger shop. It works well, is fairly quiet and I am able to move the unit through the shop with just a bit of effort, no fault of equipment, more an issue of too much equipment in shop/garage space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. There are cheaper shop vac's out there, after wasting my money on those, I paid a little more on the RIGID and if performs perfectly. Assembly wasn't difficult and with 6.5 peak HP it has enough power to get the job done. You can tell immediately this unit was not cheaply made and it performs perfectly. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well thought out machine In order to get the full use of this vac, you'll need to get all the accessories. And there are quite a few. It makes quick work of cleaning up a dirty shop, car or anything else I've used it on.

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.
