Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vink70 Insanely Quiet!
I love how quiet this shop vac is while running. I was using it with the bags that go inside of the bottom of the vac and they worked awesome as well. Very impressed with the vacuum.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob65 Excellent product needing only one design improvement
This vac performs very well, and is also very thoughtfully designed compared to other vacs I have had--the clamps keep the lid/motor housing on the bottom, the hose doesn't pull off the vac, the tool accessory rack holds everything firmly in place and includes holes to contain the hose so it doesn't flop around when you are carrying the vac around. My only request would be a redesigned cord wrap--the existing tabs on the carry handle should be bigger to keep the cord from riding up over them, and there should be two additional tabs on the housing above the tool rack so the cord could wrap in a bigger circle, making it faster to wrap the cord.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jogo628 Powerfull suction and durability
This vacuum is one of the best , that's why I already have 5 of this and used every day at the locations I clean . Every time I have a new contract I must have one of this handy. I will not buy other brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Britincanadia Best tool bought for my reno!
This vac is awesome - my wife even said it's one of the most useful purchases we've made recently!
Well worth spending the money on the more powerful unit which creates excellent suction. The 2 1/2" hose makes clean up easy and the on board tool storage is handy.
I also highly recommend getting the muffler. Not so much for sound deadening (it's a pretty quiet unit anyway) but more so for deflecting the exhaust air, preventing dust and debris getting blown away before you vac it up.
Only downside is a result of the vacs effectiveness - the filter needs to be cleaned regularly as it quickly gets clogged.
Overall, this is an essential tool to have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rockman708 Best Wet / Dry Vacuum I Have Owned
Easy to assemble and easy to use right out of the box. I have owned my vac for almost 2 years now. It still operates like it did the first day I purchased it.. Very strong and fairly quite, as far as these shop -vacs go. Filters work great. I have run mine for several hundred hours sucking everything up from saw dust, drywall dust, 3-1/2 inch screws and nails, large wood chunks, to ultra fine dust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TangledupnBIGBLUE Excellent vac - worth the money
I've only had mine for a couple of months but have been impressed w/ it's performance. We are remodeling my late father's house & the vac has been indispensable, I've used it for general cleaning, picking up sawdust (needs a better filter to pickup dry wall dust -$30 @ HD - ouch!). Much quieter than the old Sears shop vac it replaced. I am trying to convince my wife to use it in the house to replace the Sears canister vac she currently uses. The Rigid is lighter, has more power & noise levels are similar. The auto detail kit is very handy & a bonus to look for when shopping for a vac. Durability is yet to be seen but I expect it to be a beast for a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Befree66 A great home remodel clean up tool.
We were shopping for a wet dry vac for cleaning up after removing popcorn from our ceilings. We decided on the RIDGID 14 Gallon and couldn't be happier. This is a powerful machine and the filter system kept dust to a minimum. The hose is stiff like all brands so we bought the detail kit which has a softer hose. The detail kit has come in handy. It comes in handy for reaching all the hard to reach places when sweeping my auto and boat.
We haven't used the wet option yet but if it preforms like the dry vac we couldn't be happier.
The RIGDID 14 gal is great value for such a low cost.
