Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tallguydiy As advertised: moves a lot of air!
After a flooded basement and a professional dry-out, I wanted to have a blower comparable to the ones the pros use for any residual moisture. The Ridgid blower did the job. When I pulled out a cabinet and found some water, the blower dried the cabinet, floor and wall in a few hours. It's easy to move around, too, with the telescoping handle.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by YeahMeAgain Needs more specs
What is the HP rated Motor in this? Huge thing for me is Where is my extra power outlet on the side when I need to daisy chain these together?!!!
I will most likely be returning this and getting a 1hp or better with the side outlets when I need to operate more than one at a time.
Another thing. I purchased this as an Open box for 199 - the unit was clearly used and I was not given any compensation towards the purchase. If I had got this for 150, I could see keeping it. It is just NOT a 200 air mover.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by poisonivy Great for drying out wet carpet and padding.
Our bathroom flooded so I went to Home Depot to find a fan to dry out the carpet and padding.
This fan worked great. I also like the handle. It makes it easy to move around.

Not super loud and I like the 3 speed option. Also easy to move from place to place.

I discovered a leak around my air conditioner that left the carpet wet. I initially purchased an inexpensive blower, but as soon as I turned it on I knew it wasn't up to the task. So, it went back to the store and was exchanged for the Ridgid. This a very heavy duty unit, but it has a sturdy molded handle on the top and suitcase style handle and wheels on the back side. The thirty foot cord is commercial duty and wraps around the handle for storage. This blower moves a lot of air, but is surprisingly quiet. In the future I will be able to use this to dry shampooed carpet without the noise driving everyone out of the room. Unlike competitive units where an extended warranty costs you more, this one comes with the Ridgid lifetime warranty. I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SEMN Great for basement drying basement after a flood
Awoke to a geyser coming through the floor of our basement after receiving eight inches of rain in a few hours. Wet/Dry Vac and regular household fans were not enough. Ran to HD to get this floor dryer and it worked excellently. 24 hours of this on and the basement was dry, the wooden shelving legs were dry, and no smells of damp basement. Looking forward to using in the garage in the winter after snow melts off vehicles. I'd buy it again. It's a lot of money to drop for a home owner on a floor fan, but definitely worth it.
