Rated 5 out of 5 by Trying to register this Vac on the Rigid Website was very difficult The vacuum works fine. The accessory brushes are way overpriced, and I will come up with another solution. August 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by just have easy jobs to do right now, so thats with the average replacing a 6 gallon 2.5 h.p. unit, the new unit doesn't have the suction of the bigger vac, but didn't expect it to. Got it mostly for the light weight use for cleaning uphostery and house hold chores. Seems to do all right for that, I'm able to control it alot better than the big suction vacs. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Little Vac. Great little Vac. Plenty of power and very portable. Noise level is good too. August 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by An excellent small utility vacuum for light uses. I like the portability of this product (although wheels would be a desirable addition). It is perfect for the small home maintenance and remodel jobs I do. One drawback is that every attachment is sold separately. August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This vacuum is the perfect size to use in my basement. The only minus factor on this product is that it doesn't come with more than 1 attachment. August 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The right size with a lot of power. I was surprised of the power this little machine puts out. It's perfect for everyday use around the house and great on vacuuming the car. Really glad I bought it as it is made to last for years to come. . I only wished it came with an extended tube so that you don't have to bend over or overreach with just the hose. July 30, 2015
