Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like having the removable blower option Still new but this unit seems to have plenty of power. I use it mostly in the garage. My first shop vac was made by Hoover and it too had a removable blower. Big help when wanting to blow dust off the floor or move leaves away from the door

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defective switch We bought a Ridgid wet/ dry vac in Dec. 2006. Because of how sturdy and for the lifetime warranty. We had it for 71/2 yrs. and has worked great. Well this year the switch started acting up, would turn on, but was hard to push to turn off. I called customer service and told me to take Four pictures of the vac. I emailed them back, they told me thank you it might take 2 weeks to process. With in a week I had a brand new one sent to me. Was very pleased. The new one has some updated features that makes it better. I haven’t had a chance to use it, but I’m very sure it will perform just as well as my old one if not better. Thank you Ridgid, I will keep buying your products, and I recommend them 100%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I recently purchased the Ridgid 16 Gallon 6.5HP vacuum to replace a broken Shop-Vac. In comparison, the quality is a lot better on the Ridgid, it's sturdy and well-constructed while still being lightweight and powerful. It is very well designed, with ease of access to attachments and overall functionality. I love the detachable blower too. I've only owned it for a week but so far so good. It's a huge improvement over the old Shop-Vac. I would recommend this for anyone in need of a good quality yet easy to use vacuum that's powerful and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Wet/Dry Vac I own another one of these and I love it. It not only can pick up water and dry debris but it makes a great leaf blower in the fall or any time a pile of leaves decides to invade your property. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This wet/dry Vac is awesome! I run two 16 gallon vacs in my shop. They do a great job of collecting the dust. The Ridgid Wet/Dry 16 gallon Shop Vac has been a dependable work horse. I use one with my table saw and band saw. The second vac is hooked up to the sander. Both vacs collect the dust satisfactorily. I clean the filter after 2 hours of continual work. On the occasion that the vac motor burns out the Ridgid Life Time Warranty is available to save the day. It is a great product.

Where can I find the Power Switch?

My unit got warm and the switch got HOT and part melted. I need to replace the power switch. Where can I find one?
Asked by: Carroll
Sounds like a quality workmanship issue and as long as you registered the item you shouldnt have any issue getting it repaired or replaced by Ridgid.
