Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dogsportlady A great easy to roll and powerful vac
The size and weight is a bit intimidating when it first was delivered. The top 1/2is actually a storage/tool box. It rolls so easily and is power for both in the wet and dry vac mode

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pininfarina83 Best Shop Vacuum
This is the absolute best shop vac that I have ever used or owned. The shape and design features are well suited for property management and residential use. The storage bin/draws for the accessories and hose, the cord holder on the rear and the built in storage for the hose extensions are what make this a must have. The flat top allow you to carry other items with the shop vac or use is as a work surface. While its twice as expensive as a normal shop vac it will pay for itself in increased efficiency in less than a year.

I tried several Ridgid vacs before landing on this one. I primarily use bags in my vac because im dealing with a lot of sheetrock dust. The design of the containment system makes changing the bags an easy task. You dont have to pull the whole thing apart and make a mess. The vacuum has lots of suction and overall is quiet compared to other vacuums I have used. The storage system is fine for your common use attachments but I can fit a lot more in the handle storage of the other vacuums. I dropped the rating one star due to the hose. While its nice to have the upgraded hose, the one it comes with is substantially shorter than the one you buy off of the shelf. Ridgid, if youre listening... Two improvements: extra storage bag on the handle and introduce a heavy duty 2 1/2" hose rather than the 1 7/8 with the fittings.

In theory it was a good idea but don't know why they made the hose 1 7/8 instead of 2 1/2.
Had some good tools and couldn't get an adaptor to use them. I was told in store that they made it smaller to save money. Also had to buy diffuser for outlet or blew dust around. Overall happy.

I had always wanted a good wet/dry shop vacuum and when I seen this in an ad, I just had to request it for Father's Day. My family got it for me and the storage of the hose and accessories is convenient and is easy to store with dangling hoses.

I like the idea of having the drawers for attachments, wheels and the shape. The problem is the dust drum and the power head assembly do not fit tight. Dust gets everywhere. There needs to be a better seal. Bad design. Very disappointed in Ridgid! Going to try to return unit to Home Depot. Do not buy this unit! If I can not return unit, going to add a gasket between the dust bin and filter support assembly to see if that will fix the problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by llcoollutz Great mobile shop vac
Just love this shop vac. Has great suction and is quiet for a shop vac. Love the mobility - very easy to move it down stairs. Careful though, it sucks up everything. I was afraid it wouldn't pull in large piles of leaves but it does! Very easy to empty and I love the accessory compartments.
