Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rigid a good deal for price Excellent wet dry vac for home/shop use. Plenty of attachments to choose from. Will be using with hepa and bag filters while grinding paint off concrete porch. Will update once completed with full report.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Design Purchased recently at Home Depot when my Shop-Vac suddenly quit, without warning, during what at least I THOUGHT was normal use. Actually the second Shop-Vac to do this - (maybe I'm harder on these things than I realize...?) - which DID influence my decision to try a different brand this time. The features on this vac are great! Love the ability to store all accessories on the units "legs". Extra long AC cord is helpful. Warranty is great. So far the performance has been flawless. We'll see if it holds up over time but, so far, its great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wet/Dry Vac I bought this Wet/Dry Vac to replace an old 12 gal. Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac which died after many years of use at my old home on Long Island, NY (primarily due to submersion as a result of Hurricane Sandy). The improvements to the vac over the old one, in particular, the power cord wrapping/carrying handle, the hose grips, and the locking accessories, make this a great purchase. It was easy to assemble (although it required more assembly steps than the old one). I've used it twice to clean my garage floor (dry job) and a liquid spill (wet job), and so far, so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Solid!! Rigid has done it again! Quality and performance are point on. I wish I had bought one sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment Honestly, I avoided Ridgid products, I didn't think they stacked up to the big boys, I was wrong. After donating my wet vac to a flood victim I needed a replacement. Research led me to pull the trigger on this unit and I am not disappointed. Performs great and a lifetime guarantee. I purchased the car kit and fine detailer set to go with it. Wish they sold a caddy for these items. Only have 3 stars for Reliability since I only had it less than a month. Will be looking at Ridgid for other tools in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price & Quality Product It was time to replace my 30 year old wet/dry vac, this one is more powerful and quieter, plus a free stainless steel coffee tumbler. Buying a new filter or $20 or getting a new filter and new wet/dry vac for about $40 more was a great deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! This unit is a step up over the 12 year old Ridgid ShopVac that finally gave up. It was a good one.
