Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extention tubes DO NOT stay connected The 20 inch long extention tubes and the accessories that attach to them do not stay connedted. This is very irritating while trying to work. I put sheetmetal screws in to hold them together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the life time warranty My wife wanted another removable blower vac. The old one gave out. The one we had was 4.5 HP this is 6.5 HP. There were not a lot to choose from and most of the best ones were very comparative with the Rigid Vac/blower except for the life time warranty. Have only used this a few times and all is well. I expect to get 10+ years out of this vac/blower as I believe the one I am replacing is about that old. I like to shop local and I was able to get as good a price local as I could any where so I bought from our local Home Depot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product needs some improvements. My older vac had much more suction comparing to this one. Front caster feet should have extra storage space for extra accessories (I like having many different types of accessories). Lifting the vac with latches is not convenient. Few times it opened accidentally on me. I prefer to have the handles on the side (like the older unit). Emptying the vac from dry contents would be better if the drum was straight not beveled. This leaves some particles in the drum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Saver I purchased this vacuum for brand-name, capacity and horse power. It provided all of those items and is very quiet also. Then there was a bonus surprise. The motor unit detaches and quickly becomes a very powerful leaf blower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PULL DOUBLE DUTY At first thought why would I need a vacuumed with a detachable blower? Best investment this year. Pull double duty with this VAC/blower. Made cleaning the gutters a breeze.

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.
