Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power and portability I purchased this product for its portability and light weight. It has exceeded my expectations as it has incredible suction. I mainly use it for small jobs including dry wall duct clean up. I use the optional dust bag but found there was little room for the bag and filter. I have remedied this by removing the filter when using the bags and shrouding the filter cage with a fine filter cloth sleeve. This combination works like a charm and no drywall dust escapes the vacuum. As I mainly do plaster repair I have attached a shoulder strap on the handle and am able to sand and collect the dust,as it falls. Ridgid offers a great selection of accessories for this product. I have several Ridgid vacuum cleaners and this is my go to for drywall dust. April 1, 2014
