Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vacuum was an excellent deal coming as a promo kit. I have owned Rigid products now for the last six years and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy for the first time or replacing existing tools. No regrets with my purchases. Always dependable for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to both assemble and review. Having owned a Wet Vac and needing a new one I chose Ridgid and I am glad I made that decision. Very easy to use and operate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It did the job! For the first time ever, had a lot of water in my basement as a result of flooding in the St. Louis area. Needed something to help collect the water. This product quickly collected water. The only improvement on this model would be a hose to drain the "bucket". Having to tip the bucket was laborious and time consuming. It did do the job it was supposed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would make the hose more flexible. I have not had the unit for very long, but what I have seen from this unit it has worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wet/dry vac This is the best wet/dry vac we've ever owned! Great suction, easy to set up, use, and empty. I only wish it came with a brush attachment.

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
