This newly designed RIDGID 16-gal. wet/dry vacuum is a multi-functional powerhouse. Its powerful motor and large drum size allow it to perform extremely well as a conventional vacuum. In addition, the vacuum's power head detaches and quickly converts into a handheld blower with a locking blowing wand that outperforms most dedicated leaf blowers. The quick-release cord wrap lets you spend less time unwrapping the 20 ft. cord, and more time on the job. The caddy conveniently keeps your accessories and hose close at hand. It's like two incredible tools in one.

  • 6.5 peak HP motor provides powerful suction for heavy-duty cleanup
  • Comes with 1 detachable blower which offers blowing capacity ideal for cleaning decks and driveways
  • 20 ft. cord provides extra reach
  • Built-in drain for easy emptying of liquids
  • Accessory storage space for all the included accessories and the hose

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 223 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this product is used to build new houses and the blower attachment is great to clean itself when bag leaks inside drum the vac / blower combo is great for having to do the place of two or three different tools. The only problem we have with the machine is the bag mount doesn't allow the bag to slide completely over the inlet /bag attachment to seal so no debris leaks into drum. The ease of change over from vac to blower and back is great especially with the 20' cord The attachment mounting bracket holds all the attachments and hose pipes as to allow ease in transport and doesn't get in the way when removing and replacing the blower head November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great shop vac I've bought this initially just as a shop vac for my garage to vacuum cars but ended up using it all around the house. Drywall dust, fireplace ashes (with the proper filter!), dryer lint... Blowing junk out of the garage... You name it - this vac can do it! I've also got a few more attachments for this vac as well as an extra hose so I can vacuum both cars without moving the vac itself. Speaking of leaf blower - it's good for blowing junk out, but the wire is a hassle. Still prefer old good Gas blower for the yard work. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall design and suction is excellent I bought all the frilters and muffler, a car cleaning kit and an extra hose. I used it on sanding drywall and vacuming at same time and works awesome, you have to clean filter with an air compressor depending on how much you do. I used the vacum to clean our vehicles and garage floor and works awesome. I also used the blower for driveway and works awesome again. I very happy with product and if you want to buy a excellent product that you wont regret, buy this one, i promote this product with 2 thumbs up!!!!!!!!!! November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So good, we bought another for the cottage! We were so impressed with the power, durability and versatility of our 16 gallon Wet/Dry Vac that we bought another one for our cottage located a 5 hour drive from our home. Not only does this unit perform well in dry and wet conditions, the detachable blower has the sufficient power to blow the leaves off our deck. It's a great product! December 3, 2014
