Rated 5 out of 5 by Biketom5 Powerful, convenient size, and ease of portability.
Very happy with this vacuum. I bought this vacuum several weeks ago to use for home cleanup jobs. So far, this vacuum far exceeds my expectations. I did not need anything with large capacity. I really like the smaller size which makes navigating through the house very easy. Power is more than adequate and picks up debris quickly. Be careful not to vacuum small area rugs, the suction power will grab it.
I purchased the optional bags to collect drywall dust, which was recommended by Rigid in the user manual.
I did research on other vacuums, but Rigid's history and reliability helped with my decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLangford Good, strong vacuum
Purchased this unit to help with a reoccurring (bi-weekly) job of suctioning water out of a container. This unit has good, strong suction and operates easily and well. It has only been used a couple of times, but very pleased with it thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by srdumstorf Works as designed which is excellent.
I was a little skeptical about this small wet/dry vac, it's advertised 4 HP with a peak of 5.0, means little to me as I haven't a clue how they determine the HP rating, ie at 3,000 rpm ect., So I figured if the top of their line is rated at 6.5 hp the 4-5 hp should be adequate. I was pleasantly surprised at the suction power this vacuum develops. It far surpassed my expectations when cleaning & shampooing the carpet in my car. It also does the job far better than the one that it replaced which happens to be the blue/gray colored
vac that's made to hang on the wall and sold at competitors store.
It's well worth the $79.00.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lostbridgefarm This vac is the right size for my garage and basement cleanups.
I recently retired from a big box store where I saw a lot of these units sold. I put it my Christmas gift list. Wish granted. It is relatively easy to use. However, the hose is somewhat stiffer than I expected. That should loosen up with use. I would like a brush for light jobs. Also the drum clamps are a little tight for arthritic fingers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JP87 Compact and powerful
Great vac. Compact size make it easy to keep in truck. It has a long hose with extension so you don't have to bend over to clean. Moves around easily while you clean with its wheels. I am a carpenter and I use it every day.
