Rated 5 out of 5 by DHef I like the wheels and big handle
Would like to see a little better place to store the hose. It doesn't always stay in the little holders on each side and gets annoying when it falls out of one and you have to stop and put in back in the holder. I think the current set up could be improved.
Does have good suction and is quieter than other shop vacs I have used in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by comiejap Great!
So far this vacuum has been very useful, sucking up anything that comes in contact with end of the hose. I have been using it for a solid three months with no issues other than getting zapped when touching the stainless steel container during operation, from what I presume is build up of static electricity. The motor is extremely quiet and powerful with plenty of room in the container at 16 gallons for less dumping between cleanings. You can not ask for much more than this in wet/dry vac. I highly recommend buying a gutter cleaning attachment for this vacuum (if u have gutters), as it works wonderfully, the large wheels on the cart make it easy to navigate tough terrain in the yard while cleaning the cutters. Really the only complaint is that the handle could be adjustable to accommodate taller individuals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CalgaryGuy This is a monster
I have only used the dry vac so far but the suction is incredible. It is lighter than it looks. The huge piping is great. I can't wait to try the wet vac & blower but based on the power this machine has I am confident that it will also be amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wrightones The BEST shopvac we've ever owned
We recently purchased a home that we are doing a large demo on and knew we needed a shopvac that would go the distance. We read reviews and looked at quite a few before making our final decision. From the stainless cannister to the wheels, I couldn't be more pleased. It easily moves from room to room without having to fight it and the amount of suction is outstanding. Very easy to empty as well. I'd have to say that this was one of our best purchasing decisions. Thank you Rigid for making a quality product at an affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hoanle1 Ridgid Wet/Dry Vacs should be renamed just Beast Vac
I use this vac for all construction and woodworking debris. It sucks up everything. I mean everything. This is my second Ridgid Vac. The first one, a blower vac is still running smoothly. I love Ridgid products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rumdoodle This vacuum rocks...
It will suck the bad attitude clean out of your mother in law - and anything else for that matter. Great power, love the stainless canister. The inlet into the canister needs to be easily removable to make it easier to remove full vacuum bags. Other than that no complaints so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Madglyn easy to use
We are having a home built and needed to do some heavy-duty first time clean up. The electric and plumbing are in so there were shavings from drilling holes to run the wire and pipes, clips for the roofing, nails, wires and you name it. Luckily we had a previous Ridgid vacuum with the muffler on it that easily transferred tot he new one. So parts are interchangeable which was nice. The only problem which is not the vacuums fault is one it couldn't pick up the nails and wires and the leaves that were all over inside the house were so numerous that it would clog easily but it was also an easy fix. Love this vacuum, can't believe we waited so long to get it. Also the wheels let it follow you anywhere on a flat surface, does circles like a champ. Easy assembly and right hight to turn on and off.
