16 Gallon Stainless Steel Wet/Dry Vac with Cart is rated out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BillPi from Quiet, easy to use and efficient This vac is much quieter than the old unit that it replaced. Its handle and large rear wheels make it easy to move. It has great vacuum power, and I use it with the optional dust bags to make cleanup easy. Its accessory storage bag and its ability to be used as a blower are added benefits. The 20' power cord usually eliminates the need for an extension cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peckerhead from Good product, but I would consider including one of your liner bags with the unit. I was disappointed when I opened mine and it wasn't in there. As I said in my summary, I was disappointed when the liner wasn't included. I had to go ahead and use it, now I will probably never buy one. If you include one it will generate a desire to continue using them. Just a thought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by duckweed from Super good vac I have 5 shop vacs now. 3 are Ridgid. Great easy access front switch. Way quieter than my other 6hp 4 gal ridgid vac. The storage thing is great and simple - good thinking. The only reason it's not 5 stars is the hose is the same cheap hose on all the vacuums and it doesn't come with the wide floor sweeper brush - what's up with that??

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hayseed from Great machine. I bought this vacuum because I had the same machine for my farming business many years ago and it's still going strong. This latest one is for my wood shop and I like getting it. The stainless steel tank is easy to keep clean, easy to empty. The large wheels on the rear make it pull along effortlessly behind you. It would be nice if the hose that was included, was a foot longer. I bought the ProGrade hose kit as well and it's an excellent accessory to go with the vacuum. All in all a great product! I would recommend this vacuum to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeEllisSeattle from A Powerful Workhorse! After years of using a whimpy 5 gal vac in my garage, and often being frustrated by how little power they actually have, I graduated to a grownup vac. Can't believe how happy I am about how readily it vacs up sawdust, wood chips and other debris. Why did I spend so much time with an inadequate "shop" vac. Now my shop can easily be kept cleaner.
