Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to use and is worth every dollar it cost This machine is easy to use and the suction is very strong. It moves very easy with the wheels on the bottom. They look to be very durable. Some of the things I wish this machine had was a longer cord. To me the cord could be longer and I had to use a ext cord on some of the times I had to use it. Also I wish it came with a smaller attachment that you can put in the bottom of hose so you would be able to get in right spaces. You can not beat the price for this machine it’s well worth every dollar and it’s able to get the job done. The machine is quite big and hard to get in the car but I have used it many times around my house. The motor this shop vac comes with is a very good motor which allows for this vac to pick up dirt or water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price you could not beat it. It has great performance and a lot of holding capacity! Hands down the best bang for your buck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, lacking attachments I bought this unit at a Black Friday deal because my brother had one that worked better then most industrial vacuums. I mainly use it for car cleaning and some DIY house projects and so far it has met all my needs without issue. My only complaint is it doesn’t have a lot of the attachments just the wide floor and a couple of large extensions. I wouldn’t mind but the 1 7/8” size has been a challenge to find the additions such as a crevice tool, brush tool, or even an adapter so I could use it with my sander. But overall for the price of under $40 for a solid vacuum I say it was worth it. So for me a Ridgid shop vac is a worthy buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the price Easy to set up out of the box, quiet operation. Doesn't have as much suction as I expected and the flexible hose is poor- kinks easy and always seems twisted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality vac I got this shop vac for Xmas to replace my old 20 gallon shop vac I had for 20+ years. I really like it and think it will last 20 years like my old one!!! The only complaint I have is I wish it would of come with the 1 7/8 to 1 1/4 adapter for all of my attachments. I did go to home depot and purchased the adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it has great suction The only issue I have is that the serial # sticker is not on the unit?? I chatted with Ryan and he told me where to find if but not anywhere. I hope I do not have any issues where I need it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance for price, would recommend to purchase Love the vacuum great power suction is good but I wish they would’ve put it so the air filter was a screw off type instead of having to pop it of. If your not slow with taking it off dust falls off and makes a mess. But overall love the vacuum great product so far.

Wondering what can I use to clean carpet with this vacuum. There's lots of accessories with different fitting sizes available that got me confused?
