Rated 5 out of 5 by joeshmoe Have owned many of these for Flooring
I have had to use these for Flooring, and i must say, they do not disappoint. I never had one fail on me And if i did, its because someone did not clean out the filter. And that usually takes YEARS. i only had one die on me, and will be seeing how the process is handled for Warranties. I will keep you updated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BarryB Missing one feature
Before even trying out the unit, which based on other RIDGID tools, will be outstanding, I found one great feature and one missing one. The great feature is the hose attachment points on top of the rear wheel shaft assembly. Specifically made for the hose to wrap around and secure, it is very innovative. However, using the attachment points for the hose does not provide any location to store/carry the 2 extension wands. I notice on other units, you have connection pieces above all of the wheels but nothing above the front castor wheels on this model. So one either has to store the wands where the hose should go and wrap the hose, which is not very good for the hose, or store the hose and jerry rig some way to store/carry the wands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brasilbob Simply the best shop vacuums made.
I've owned one of these for several years now, and it is simply the best vacuum I've ever used. It is also so quiet that you can hold a normal conversation while standing right next to it while it is running.
I also own, and or have used shop vacs made by all of the other major manufacturers, and none of them even come close to the performance of the Ridgid vacuums.
I liked mine so much that I have just bought another one, this one with the removable blower. I've also recommended these vacuums to my friends, and they have been just as happy with them as I am.
