Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful vaccume, great battery options, filter limitations. This vacuums has great suction and with the available battery options can run a very long time (why I choose it as I have plenty of battery’s up to 9AH). It easily picks up many things, but it’s not well suited to fine powder, It will clog the filter in seconds. If used for ash from the fireplace and will loose almost all suction after a spoonful has been sucked up. It’s better if you remove the fine wet blocking filter, then you can pickup perhaps a 2/3 of a cup of fine pewder before it looses almost all suction. I’ve not tried it with drywall dust, but I suspect it will have a similar limitation. Fine regular dust also tends to plug the fine screen filter filter quickly, but can be wiped off easily so keep this in mind. It works great for sawdust and most larger particles, offering large suction in a small package. I can vacuume my entire car easily on a charge (4AH battery) or clean up a big mess after a project with it, so long as it doesn’t involve fine powder, keep your shop vac for those projects. Keep compressed air to clean out the filter if you remove the fine screen as it’s difficult to get it cleaned out. If you are ok with the limitations of the filter, it’s a great tool for quick and easy cleanup of most messes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value great vacuum I was tired of buying cheap cordless vacuums and having them not work very well. This vacuum is great it works just as well when using it to suck up wet material as it does when cleaning dry dust and dirt. It's small enough to maneuver around the seats and floor space in my truck to reach those hard to reach spots. This vacuum is essential to my small business of cleaning airplanes. Airplane owners are netoriously picky when it comes to the interior space. This vacuum is perfect for getting out those little hard to get bits and pieces that other vacuums don't get. My only regret with this tool is I didn't buy two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's sucks! I just picked this up at my local Home Depot and am impressed with its power. Other cordless vacuums just don't have the power to suck those pesky crunched cheerios that my kids leave in the car. This vacuum hoovered them right up. The carpet in my truck looks as good as new...until my kids get back in it. Also other vacuums drain the battery very quickly, this one has very good battery life. It has a large capacity for dust and dirt. I recommend this vacuum to everyone. It's powerful, durable and will last forever. It's a sweet sucker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love the floor attachment Great product, worked well for what I needed it for. I love the floor attachment, a back saver. I volunteer 2x a month building homes and after cutting all day this is good for collecting the saw dust off the floor and this is great for cleaning out my vehicles. I have not tried to suck up water but for the jobs that I needed this for , it worked well

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Handy, But Steep Price I picked this up the other day at my local HD. I was looking for something to do quick garage floor sweeps and workbench dust-offs with. I own almost all Ridgid tools so I figured I'd add one more to the collection. A few points after a day of use: Pros Surprisingly powerful - had no problems vacuuming common garage floor debris. The floor attachment is effortless to use - it glides across the floor. Cleaning and dumping the collection bin is a breeze. Easy filter access. Decent run time using 4.0 batteries. Cons Price - you could purchase a Ridgid 5-HP shop vac for the price. It's about $25 more than what I would expect to pay for a bare vacuum of this design. It is VERY loud. Like, VERY loud. It is awkwardly heavy - your forearms will give out after a short time. It needs another extension tube - people over 6' will find it uncomfortable during continuous floor use. The nozzle clogs easily. The attachment holder slides down the tube extension during normal use. It works great for my intended use. However, I probably wouldn't purchase this again at its current price. But with that being said, I certainly won't return it.

How many CFM does this produce?

Trying to see which is a better buy since ridgid makes two cordless wet/dry vacs.
Asked by: Grazzie
I don’t know the CFM, but I have both ridgid cordless vacs. They both move a lot of air, but the larger version definitely moves more air. This one is great for its size but is a smaller tube size and a little less suction. The filter also plugs far more easily on the small handheld, specially with fine dust or powder. The larger version has a much bigger filter and can handle a lot more, but you have a hose and box to drag around vs a simple one piece unit.

Will my battery work in this?

I have Lithium Ion 18V battery. Is this the correct battery for the 18V Brushless Wet/Dry Vacuum?
