Rated 5 out of 5 by Surferguyzzz from GOOD PRODUCT! I have two 120v A/C 12 Gal Wet/Dry Vacs, but dislike dragging one either into attics of owned properties to vacuum there. Also have 3 Rigid Driver drills a Rigid Impact Driver, plus 4 ea 18v Registered Lifetime Guaranteed L-Ion Batteries. Therefore, because of Rigid's Lifetime L-Ion battery guarantee - - their 3 Gal cordless Vac was the logical choice. I don't yet know how long a battery charge will last, because I have used it very little thus far. . However, this Vas has the desired amount of suction. IF not used to vacuum liquids, the filter should last a long time. Buttt Do NOT LIKE the cost of Rigid Filters for this Vac, or for other model Rigid Vac's -- because they're too expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by toecutter from Convenient and easy to use Excellnet portable shop vac. Good power/suction. Comes with hose and two attachments. 18V Battery powered. Batteries and charger are sold separately. I have the R840085 18 V battery which will run the vacuum about 10 to 15 minutes. With newer batteries you will have increased run time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beverly from compact, professional, strong We bought this little vac because it is compact and the shape will fit in the back seat of our vehicle. When you are doing odd jobs for people you don't always want to bring a large shop vac to clean up a small amount of sawdust and having your own along speaks to your attention to detail. We were surprised at how strong the suction is. The first time I tried it out, the hose grabbed onto a plastic table cloth, the hose contracted and the whole canister jumped. It's not the cheapest option but we are happy with our choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UncleEd from Power and portable. This is a great "little" vacuum. It could be your go-to all the time. However I use this for small clean up but has the power of my big vac. The hose is excellent and the feature that is great is when you have the nosel in the storage spot it works as a dust pan. This also uses the normal size filter so you don't have to buy different sizes and can get the double pack and take advantage of the savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesH from Does the job well. I was prompted by the reviews to get the Rigid Pro Wet/Dry Vac for use around the wood shop. I was looking for something light and easy to carry around. I have a large Vac, but it has large hoses fitted to my large stationary woodworking machines, and requires that I reconfigure hoses and attachments and back before and after cleanup. This vac is great. plenty of power, light and easy to carry around. The only minor issue is one a couple of other reviewers mentioned, and that is that it is top heavy and tends to want to tip over if you place it on the floor for use. However, it is light enough that you can easily carry it and clean as you go. Overall, I am very pleased and recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GCAM from portability Easy to carry and fit in small places. I purchased this model to clean the bilge on my boat. The bilge is a tight area to work in but I was able to get the vacuum down there with me and successfully suck up the dirt and water that was there.

I own the Rigid WD1450 vac and love it. Was looking for a portable unit as well. Does this smaller vac have an option to use vacuum bags in addition to the filter. I prefer to use the bags in addition to the filter when picking up drywall dust. Thank you.
No, the internals of this vac are small, maybe the addition of a foam filter may help. I saw no options for a bag.
