Customer Reviews

1-7/8 in. Utility Nozzle Accessory for RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why a utility nozzle to fit the unit I purchased... Why a utility nozzle to fit the unit I purchased at Home Depot was not "in stock" at Home Depot escapes me. I've learned vacuums are a mess with an uncontrolled variety of hose and attachment sizes. Next time, I will buy something that has a more available size than 1 7/8" 300 characters is too few

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Accessory Documentation poor Vacuum is excellent, but comes with only one tool. There is no documentation on the box what size hose comes with the tool. Additional accessories come in a few sizes and the stores I went to had these all mixed up in the bins they were supposed to be in. Took multiple trips to store to fully equip the unit with all necessary accessories.The manual does not specify the hose diameter either. Additional extension tubes which come with most other vacs are not included. Total cost to outfit this tool is greater than their more powerful vacs which come with many more accessores standard. Seems a lot to pay for a portable in light of above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is built to last! i have been needing to relace my shop vac,read up on the latest models and got the 14 gal one. the power is amazing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the vacuum has good features but is a little louder than I would like. I purchased this vacuum because it has a better filter system than my old shop vac. The hose is a bit stiffer than I had hoped for and there is a bit more noise than I would like.
