Rated 4.7 out of 5Â by 114
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gary Product was exactly as advertised.
This vac was rated 4.7 out of 5 on Home Depot's website. The only negative comments people made were regarding the noise level. The noise level is actually much lower than I expected it to be. It's just a bit louder than a standard household vacuum, but certainly not so loud that it would require ear protection.
The detachable blower is every bit as powerful as a dedicated leaf blower, and is actually a little quieter.
This is well built and sturdy, and performs very well when used on both wet and dry. We tested this on the living room carpet, and I was shocked at how much dog hair (we have a Great Pyrenees) was sucked up from the deep fibers, that was being missed by our high-end home vacuum that cost three times what this vac costs.
I would definitely recommend this vacuum for any household.

"I have owned and used this shop vac with blower for over 12 years! Had the switch stop working about 5 years ago and contacted Ridged to see if I could buy a new switch, The lady said if the motor is still working then the switch is still covered by the warrantee! So she mailed me a new switch! I clean the filter with the blower and still have the original filter, plus the 2 other finer filters! I have only purchased 2 filters in 12 years, but I do look after them. I use the blower at the end of every day to blow all the sawdust of my saws and tools and the driveways around where my crew and I have been working, it makes cleaning up go way faster than sweeping every day. I do home renovations and have used this vac a lot, for a lot of different things and it has been one of the most dependable tools in my shop! The switch is now broke again; the motor still works fine, so it will be neat to see if Ridged will send me a new switch again!"........6 month later Wow I am amazed! This shop vac. blower is 18 years old' the switch was gone again and then the blower wheel failed! it still had the motor running fine so I phone Ridgid again! and again they sent me a new switch and a new blower wheel completely free of charge! It took me 5 minutes to put back together and now it run just like new! Ridgid has one of the best warrantee's I have ever seen! I am thinking I may start buying more Ridgid tools!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Emily Well worth the price
I live a half mile from my parents, so I borrow their stuff quite a bit to work on my house. I was most often borrowing my mom's shopvac and my dad's leaf blower, so I'm super glad I purchased this 2-in-1 tool. It works great for cleaning my basement and garage, sweeping my porches and clearing out the leaves in my flowerbeds from the neighbors' trees.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Charlie Great features/great value.
This is my third shop vac. By far, it's the best I've ever used.
Plenty of power for dust, dirt, misc debris. Best of all, it can suck up apx 15 gallons of water in less than a minute (the main reason I purchased this one was to vacuum sediment from the bottom of a medium sized koi pond. It handles this task with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PaulG great and versatile as advertised
I initially just wanted a wet vac due to some recent water problems in my basement. I reviewed various options on the Home Depot website and found this model which had some great features I did not even know you could get but now wanted. This model is not only a wet vac but a powerful and heavy duty dry vac with a detachable leafblower. Bingo!! I ordered online after reading a few reviews like this one; they sent me an email that it was ready for pickup in less than an hour and I just went and picked it up and was in and out in 5 minutes. The set up is simple and using it is very easy and it is a monster that is as good if not better than advertised and at a great price in my opinion.
