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.
