Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 137 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has great features and a ton of power for its size! I bought this product on a venture to explore Ridgid's tools I love this item and use it every chance i have a small mess or a large spill to clean up. The one thing I noticed with this vacuum is if you use it a lot and use the attachment you will get shocked by the vacuum if you touch it. So I reccomend buying and antistatic hose for this machine. But overall great product!! January 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful and capable. This vac can do it all. It has portability, transportability (wheels). It stores all accessories and more. I ended up buying 2 extra accessories and the caddy was able to hold those too. It has the power you need for tough jobs, and the capacity for large jobs. And I like the look of the Stainless Steel. I do find that it is primarily for larger work, as it is not particularly lightweight and compact like some other smaller vacs. An all-in-one powerhouse. The footprint for storage is reasonable. Its designed to hold all hoses and accessories in a fairly efficient space. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This one is the best! With a drywall bag and a micro filter this vac still works great. November 27, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great Vac The suction is unbelievable. Miles ahead of my previous shop vac. Easy to transport and use. Many supplied attachments. November 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product looks great but is made very poorly This vac specifically is extemely hard to locate in a store like Home Depot. Once I found the vac and I got back to my office and plugged it in, the power button was broken. So after I set it up, I had to take it apart and bring it back to the store an hour away. They then gave me a new vac and I brought that back to my office and here I am with another broken vac. This one the lid does not snap into the orange handles that the metal push bar connects into. The orange handles are not connected by screws like it should be. It is such a pain to have to bring this vac back to the store multiple times because the product has been put together poorly. The regular plastic one worked right off the bat and lasted a year for me and would of lasted longer but a co worker of mine broke it. May 31, 2014
