Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product Great product and I will buy this 100 times over other brands, Lasts long time for running hours, lifetime warranty and over all well met my expectations. however, I would like the Ridgid to come up with a series of dust collection pipes and connectors from 4 inch to 2 1/2 inch.. this is a most complaint we ridgid tool owners that have professional tools have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power for the price Good shop vac. Little bit less powerfull than the same one I bought 2 years ago.. I don't know why. The only negative point is the dust bag price, very expensive (but you can stick with the included permanent filter if you want)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Attachments are flimsy, suction is average I bought this to use during our home renovation. It's a big job, so I was looking for a wheeled unit with a lot of volume. However, I am surprised at how the hose attachments are flexible and flimsy. I'm not confident it will last for the duration of the project, and I've been pretty careful with them so far. Also, the suction is not what I expected for the HP that this unit advertises for itself. I did get it for a great price ($40 on Black Friday), so I guess that's the trade-off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum with lots of power but filter has a tendency to slip down and blow dust all over the place. Otherwise very good vacuum for the $60 CAD This is a very good vacuum for the price of $60 CAD at Home Depot. This is the first RIDGID wet/dry vacuum that I've owned but I would highly recommend it to anyone. It has lots of power and will pick up small chunks of wood, pieces of drywall and even screws and nails. Love that it has a 60 liter capacity and a drain located at the bottom of the tub. Only challenge that I've has with it is the filter will occasionally slip down and then the vacuum blows the dust all over the place. I wish there was a more secure method of fastening the filter I

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for woodshop dust collection system. Really love this wet/dry vac. I use this in my wood shop for sawdust collection. At first I wasn't using a dust separator and the wet/dry vac filled up too quick. Inserting the Dust Right Separator saved the day. This unit has enough power for about 30' of 2.5" hose. I do not know the durability as I've had this unit for a short time.

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?

Asked by: Imran
If you apply any type of cleaning solution to the carpet I suggest you vacuum it up with the wide nozzle and then use a watering can sprinkling fresh water over the area to rinse and vac that up as well. We used this method to clean concrete before laying concrete sealer then tile and it worked great.
