Rated 5 out of 5 by EZWoodworker Great Vacuum, love it.
This shop vacuum has far more suction than any other that I have used (mostly Craftsman & ShopVac). And it is also the quietest I have ever experienced. The internal bag is a great feature for making the filter last longer, and to greatly simplify emptying the vacuumed material. I have several shop vacuums and when the next one dies, I'll buy another of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Harol Replacement of the rigid vacuum
I have purchased major Rigid tools from Home Depot including several of the 16 gallon vacuum's. And replacement has been good but I have had to return to store to the Home Depot store in Masena New York several times several times which is an hour away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DSAB This vac sucks!
Bought it for shop dust collection and 200cfm of suck power. Does an excellent job at a fraction of the price of some other setups and wall vacs. The only wish I would have is if they made the same vac into a slim wall mount version for the garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by seagle suction is good
I have only had about a week however the vaccum has more suction than any other wet/dry vac i have used. for the price I cannot complain at this time and have not had time to run it through the course yet.look forward to see how well it does over time. however have been impressed with the rigdid circular saw and the 18volt combo kit,also the miter stands is one of the best i have used and the warranty canot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carguy027 For my "Show Pony"...
I have always been a Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac fan, as I currently own two others. 1 smaller unit for household project clean-up, and 1 larger unit for auto detailing, garage clean-up. As of November 2015 I purchased my first "hot Rod" so to speak, a 2004 Mustang GT Convertible with 12000 original miles !!! SCORE !!! Well, I couldn't use those "OLD" Ridgid vacuums for this baby. So I decided to upgrade and give my pony it's own Vac !!! This thing is EXCEPTIONAL !! Great suction, Nice long power cord, Super quiet with the INCLUDED muffler, and a great assortment of tools included to get most common users started. I do a fair share of detailing so I purchased EVERY tool possible for my machine !! The cart is a great feature, it doesn't roll away nearly as much as the common shop vac normally does !! OVERALL: Don't waste time with similar models in this power/price range, I'll save you the time... BUY THE RIDGID !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thumperze You can.t go wrong with this vac.
Works great, easy to put together except for the two big wheels. The nuts that go onto the axle do not fit well. Should have a threaded nut to hold the wheels on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EASny Great wet/vac with one issue
Excellent suction. One of the quietest shop vacs. Variety of accessories available. The only issue is that two extension wands and any attached nozzles are held together by friction. With the excellent suction it is very easy for the extension wands or the attached nozzle to pull off. It would be better to screw together or latch in some manner. My solution is to screw short sheet metal screws through the plastic to hold the attachments together.
Durability is unknown at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buck4 I have been very happy with the product and its performance
I had my old one for many years and when it stopped working, I bought another one as the old one served me faithfully for years.
In addition, Ridgid stands behind their products.
