Rated 5 out of 5 by TrimProf from Best shop vac I've owned This vac may be big, but it's quiet and really does a great job of picking up sheetrock dust and just about everything else. Using mine with the dust collection bags, and they don't seem to cut down on the suction. Have only used the vac on one job so far, so can't really attest to durability. Love it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bsouthj from Glad I bought this vac! Strong, sturdy, pleasant sounding, great suction! Ony used it a few days, but I am very pleased. The only problem is that I wasn't paying careful attention putting it together and didn't line the handle up with the rear wheels. It's only off a few degrees off kilter and still works fine. If I were really fussy about details, I would be upset. This was my stupid fault, not Ridgid's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandpaBill from Super Duper Shop Vac I'm 65 and the days of me climbing ladders to clean ceiling Air Condition air returns are over. This shop vac with its very long hose and tubs allows me to stand on the ground and easily vacuum these return vents. Suction is so great, it actually pulls dirt from the AIr Filters, thus extending the life of my home A/C filters. Also the long hose allows for cleaning of Ceiling Fans . Grandpa Bill, Austin, Tx

Rated 5 out of 5 by RobertK from Quality Product with good Customer Service and Support I purchased this product from Home Depot and used it for a few years. A nut loosened internally and the motor was damaged. I contacted Rigid and after sending them a few pictures (email) I expected them to send me a new motor to fix the existing unit, however, they sent me a BRAND NEW shop vac. Rigid exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this product from this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spencer from The durability and toughness of this vac is amazing I have had a few different shop vacs, but the ridged 16 gallon 6.5 hp vac is by far superior to the other brands I have owned. I am remodeling my home and it has done an amazing clean up job. I also use it as my dust collector for my saws. I recommend this shop vac to anyone who is looking for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by M13T from Great Power with surprising quietness. I was very impressed with the vacs power. I cleaned my whole wood shop and there was nothing that it could not pick up, even blocks of wood which I thought would get stuck were just devoured. It performed equally as well in household cleaning with the attachments on board it was a breeze to hook up and change hose ends making the job go much quicker than hunting for the right end. It was very quiet and moved around well on its wheels even though it is a very large vac. The size can be an issue but the vacs weight is light for it's size and very manageable, at least empty. The hose and cord store on board very neatly. If you need a large vac I would definitely recommend this one.
