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
  • Includes 2 wands, a utility nozzle, a car nozzle, a wet nozzle, locking blowing wand, and VF4000 filter
  • Accepts RIDGID filter bag, VF3502
  • Full lifetime warranty against material defects and workmanship

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Carpenter "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! July 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good purchase of a shop vac I went to home depot for a less expensive model shop vac, but when I saw the blower on this one I decided to get it. So glad I did! We don't have trees but neighbors all around us do and since our yard is lower than theirs, we get lots of leaves and branches, plus our garage had another flood (seems to happen at least once a year) and we really needed this tool for cleanup. Would purchase again, and also recommend this product. October 28, 2014
