Lots of suction for a vac that size, matter affect best compared to other brands. However, connecting an extension hose, it will leak at the end of hose/coupling to the extension.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy NEEDED INFORMATION!!~!
I have the 16 gallon shop vac, and in the manual it states that this is the replacement hose. What it did not say, that I would need a 2.5 inch adapter. YES THE HOSE WORKS, BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE BOUGHT THE ADAPTER WHICH COMES SEPARATE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PortableMountain I have 4 of the 12 gal 5 hp and a little 4 gallon ones, and 5 cats. These are the best and perfect tool i own.
A similar product ceased to function and was repairable when I needed to clean the basement after the cats. On a fluke I was at Home Depot at 6 a.m. to pick up a new Ridgid 12 gal 5 hp vac exactly like the others I have because I needed one for the basement. I did not notice the weather outside, and it was a hard and steady rain. and the store was full of people looking for pumps for their basements. I found the last 12 gal vac in the store, purchased it and left. I made a detour to my friends house and his basement was flooding and he had no way to take care of the situation. I got the 12 gal wet/vac which assembled in seconds, put on the wet floor attachment and went to work. In about 15 min we had the situation under control, throwing countless gallons out into the back yard. the damage was minimal, and we easily kept up with the rest of the water seeping in. We got 9 inches of rain that day. And just because of a broken vacuum and a new one on a whim, we were able to save his basement. THAT IS RIDGID DEPENDABILITY...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by drjimdmd 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMAMA A worthwhile purchase.
I bought this hose to retro fit into an older version of a shop vac to vacuum out some heating ducts. It worked very well, and I'm hoping it will last as long as my shop vac has. I am concerned about the environment, and I'm tired of throwing away plastic items that can't be recycled, and do not degrade because they are petroleum products, into landfills.
