BAG THAT GOES WITH THIS MODEL

BOUGHT ONE AT HOME DEPOT BUT THE BAG WAS NOT IN THE BOX, WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY THE BAG WAS NOT WITH MINE IT WOULD BE SO HANDY TWO HAVE THIS BAG FOR HOLDING ALL ASSESORYS
Asked by: EMORY
Return it. They all come with a black bag. The factory must have left it our of the box. I use this for vacuuming up water. I always dry it and air it out after. After 6 months two holes in the bottom appeared. There were not from a puncture. They rusted through; plus the seam on the inside rusted as well. I guess it was not stainless. Anyway, I contacted RIDGID, they said email them info and pictures and I NEVER heard back. After 7 months i returned it to HOME DEPOT and they were EXCELLENT to deal with. They exchanged the product without question even though it had been so long. I got the same one since I was so far into it. Next time it will be the plastic 16 gallon. The motor is quiet and preforms very well.

16 gal. 6.5-Peak HP Stainless Steel Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 251.

The drain is two pieces of foam glued together and came apart after draining the unit approximately six times. I live about 30 minutes out from Home Depot and was in the middle of the job when this came apart. I had to disassemble, box back up, and return the item to purchase a different product same size but with the drain as part of the molded body. Would not recommend for anyone to buy this product, unless construction of drain is addressed. Nice to look at but did not get the job done...bought and return within hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good BUT not as good as the plastic one. This is a GOOD vacuum BUT... honestly i'd rather have the 16gal plastic one. This one the bottom part that holds the wheels on is in two peices and only clips on. Also this is stainless yes BUT the metal base is kinda flimsy, i bet its gonna get dented pretty good where as the plastic one wouldnt dent it could crack. Also the bottom of the stainless one there is a seam where water could puddle up and rust it. Yes its stainless but it can still rust if its cheap stainless which it is, a magnet will stick to it the can. Also the plastic one comes with a muffler which helps prevent the exhaust air from kicking up more dust. Its nice BUT id personally rather have the plastic one.

I carelessly managed to damage the hose today, so I am buying a replacement hose. This is an AWESOME vacuum. Lots of power . If you ever feel the suction has reduced , you need to clean the filter. There are probably better ways to clean the filter, but I just remove it and tap sharp (don't bang it) on a tree, and when the dust finally clears you are ready to go again. I also bought an after market filter bag to go over the filter, and this prevents the filter getting dirty so quickly. Just remove the bag and shake it ( make sure you are standing up wind when you do). I bought 2 for a home construction business I have. This thing works great. I recommend this to EVERYONE!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware of Rust and Warranty First, let it be known that the customer support people, will do anything to keep from honoring the warranty. Period. This is a great vacuum. Get the plastic one if you ever expect to use it wet. The canister is "stainless" steel, but it rusted like it's cheap chrome plated steel.

Have you ever looked around your back yard and thought their must be an easier way to keep your hard surfaces clean of leafs and flower petals? Perhaps you are saying that is what a leaf blower is for? Well I didn't want a leaf blower because then you are still there after all that effort trying to remove the pile you have created in your yard. Then it hit me, what if I could vacuum them into a bin, I could simply dump into the yard refuse container? Then it hit me, a shop vac could work! Finally talked my husband into this, and now I can vacuum the back yard! Great job, bit leaves all the way down to the petals! Pool side has never looked so good! Easy to roll around great suction! So happy!

The Price is great and Wow does it ever get the job done. Amazing suction power. I used it on my above ground pool to get out the last few inches of water out, and it literally takes about 15 seconds tops to fill the 16 gallon tank. (remember to remove filter for large amounts of water as it says in the manual) Easy to roll and quick to drain. As for the Dry Vac part, I have not used that yet. Also, the Filter is super easy to take out and put back on. Great attachments etc..etc... Can't say enough good things about this Powerful Wet/Dry Vac. Very Powerful and pretty quiet. ---- I highly recommend this product. I am more than satisfied so far.
