Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily best shop vac I've used Ive gone through a lot of shop vacs. I mainly use them for auto detailing or cleaning up minor dirt messes in my garage or picking up water from a pressure washing gig. This vacuum has been the best at all of it. Better than craftsmen by far and numerous others I've had. My only complaint is the brush that comes with the auto detailing kit isn't too great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wanted a shopvac and got this 2 in 1 I purchased this becuse I was frustrated with an underpowered shopvac from another manufacturer. I wanted to clean out the space between some belgian pavers on my patio. I figured that I may as well try the detachable blower feature. This thing finished the jab in no time. It was so fast I decided to clean out all of the old leaves from under the deck! Very fast and easy to use with a long enough cord for my needs. I highly recommend getting this as its basically 2 very useful tools in one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Less Accessories Every New Model The top doesn't sync perfectly always and you find yourself fighting with a swearing at Rigid. The direction is not intuitive so you're spinning it around a lot as well. I'd kick the designers in the nuts if o ever met them.
