Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RegretfulRigid You get what you pay for...
Purchased this on Black Friday sale, regretting it ever since 1st use. Extremely, and I mean extremely loud! Also, whenever I vacuum anything, debris (not all but some) will come out the blow port. And this is with a brand new filter. Defeats the purpose of vacuuming to me. After calling customer service, they say it's normal and suppose to blow debris. They suggested I buy a muffler/diffuser for the blow port to keep debris and lower the noise. (And then I read those reviews...) I owned a competitor's vac before, completely different quality - should of stuck with that brand.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wb26 Vacuum Works, attachments incompatible
We purchased this vacuum for around $40, black Friday. It came with a small hose and small attachments. I used it to clean up Christmas decorations. The vacuum seems to work fine, the body seems durable, and it has a large capacity.
I didn't appreciate the lack of attachments. If you want a wide variety of attachments, you'll have to throw away the hose and all attachments that came with the vacuum, since smaller attachments are not available in the store (see photo).
My wife purchased the brush attachment before she saw the size of the substandard hose that comes with this vacuum.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roger 16 gallon shop vac
It's a Powerful vacuum and was surprised on the suction. The only disappointing thing was the attachments.
Purchased during the holiday's at a great price but now I need to purchase more attachments.

This is a powerful shop vacuum and more than meets my needs. At the Black Friday pricing, it was a no-brainer. That being said, be well-aware that you'll likely need to add the crevice and brush tools as well as a hose extension. Even with those extra expenses, getting a Ridgid shop vacuum (with lifetime warranty) for this price was not a difficult decision.

To flimsy, only one attachment! The only two things that are good about this; low price point...and good suction.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveW Very strong, high capacity wet/dry vac with IN/OUT blow ports, hose, two extensions and attachment
I saw this item advertised in a pre-Black Friday email from Home Depot. As my dad purchased the smaller 11 gallon Rigid wet/dry vac, I knew this one would perform 100% to my expectations as it has a stronger motor and 5 gallon larger capacity. And for $40 you can't beat the price with the vacuum and accessories that are included for that price!
Assembly is really straight forward as all you do is unlatch the top motor section, flip the tub upside down after removing hose inside there, insert wheel mounts to tub bottom and firmly push wheels in their slots until they click into place. Flip tub right side up again and put motor back on and latch closed to tub. Put extensions on wheel mounts and accessory attachment on another of 2 empty wheel mounts. Plug in hose paying attention to locking clip on end of hose and port on vacuum.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mgeeee Can't use bags!!!
Picked up this on Black Friday sale for the price of a low-end shopvac thinking that I was getting a deal. I bought this to cleanup drywall dust and so I picked up some high efficiency bag filters. To my surprise there is no way that a bag filter can fit! Also the proprietary Rigid cartridge filter means I can't use Teflon coated cartridge for shopvac. Returned this thing the next day and bought a shopvac.
