Rated 3 out of 5 by from Questionable dependability I've had mine about a year. In that time, I may have put 20 hours on it. A little sawdust here and there, some small debris....nothing large or taxing. One day, it just QUIT! Switch may be faulty, other than that, it's a GREAT product. When it worked, it had more suction than I had ever seen in a wet/dry PERIOD!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems sturdy and solid. I would have much preferred the 2 1/2 inch hose model. I thought 21/2 inch was standard for all shop vacs. The accessories are much smaller than my last shop vac, and there are not as many options that fit the 1 7/8 inch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy for the price. I got this for Fathers Day and it was the BEST gift I got. I love how well it runs , works . I just wish I could have bought a second one so I could have one for just WET and another for just DRY. I guess Ill have to wait till next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shop Vac for a good price I am using this to grind a floor. It has a bag filter, and a regular main filter. Some of the hose connections are cheap. Sucks like a champ though... ha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Wanted to upgrade my wet dry vac in my shop and couldn't pass on this Ridgid. Seems very well built and has plenty of suction. Have not had to use it on any wet messes yet but have no worries as to its functionality. Great product at a great price.

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.
