Questions & Answers

Is this a quiet vacuum? If this isn't the quietest shop model, then which one is?

I don't need much power. And smaller is a plus. I have read that Ridgid makes some quiet shop vacs. I need one quieter than others so as to not scare confined animals. Does not even have to be a wet/dry vac: any vac with a hose, but not noisy, is the criterion. Thanks for any help with this.

No, it is very loud compared to similar sized Sh*pvac brand.

Can this vaccum be used with the sander used for sanding drywall?

Asked by: dietz9934
Filter plugs fairly easy with fine particles, haven't used it for drywall but sawdust needs to be emptied frequently

3 Gal. 3.5-Peak HP Portable Pro Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 500.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome shop vac, this is high quality, the hose I think is rubber not the cheep plastic that Craf... Awsome shop vac, this is high quality, the hose I think is rubber not the cheep plastic that Craftsmen makes. Its hard to find a 3.5-Peak HP in such a small vac. I use this with any kind of cleanups that I use for my carpets. Your typical brush attachment fits with this vac if you use the adaptor which I bought at Ace, but they have them at Home Depot I also modified mine for my convenience. This is easy to lift and you can hang on to it while u vacuum up leaves in your home and messes. I can't lift much but this just works. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD PRODUCT! I have two 120v A/C 12 Gal Wet/Dry Vacs, but dislike dragging one either into attics of owned properties to vacuum there. Also have 3 Rigid Driver drills a Rigid Impact Driver, plus 4 ea 18v Registered Lifetime Guaranteed L-Ion Batteries. Therefore, because of Rigid's Lifetime L-Ion battery guarantee - - their 3 Gal cordless Vac was the logical choice. I don't yet know how long a battery charge will last, because I have used it very little thus far. . However, this Vas has the desired amount of suction. IF not used to vacuum liquids, the filter should last a long time. Buttt Do NOT LIKE the cost of Rigid Filters for this Vac, or for other model Rigid Vac's -- because they're too expensive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome vacuum! I couldn't find this vacuum in any local store so I was a bit hesitant to buy without first seeing it. Delivery took longer than I expected, but I really like this vacuum after only a few uses. It is lighter than I expected and the cord wrap feature is nice. Also convenient is the ability to store the hose up out of the way when the appropriate tool is attached. I wish more tools were included, as I wanted the crevice tool and it was extra. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a small, powerful, portable vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from compact, professional, strong We bought this little vac because it is compact and the shape will fit in the back seat of our vehicle. When you are doing odd jobs for people you don't always want to bring a large shop vac to clean up a small amount of sawdust and having your own along speaks to your attention to detail. We were surprised at how strong the suction is. The first time I tried it out, the hose grabbed onto a plastic table cloth, the hose contracted and the whole canister jumped. It's not the cheapest option but we are happy with our choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size for manoeuvrability. Good power in a small package. My only complaint would be the crevis tool is too big to get into small nooks and crannies (eg. Car cleaning), and it should come with an exhaust defuser otherwise the exhaust is spreading the dust around that you haven't got around to vacuuming yet. True, you can purchase muffler/defuser extra for $18, but seriously??? I hooked on a shoulder strap from my gym bag and vacuumed the gutters after having the roof reshinged and it worked great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only used it once. I bought the machine to use in my garage and on the decks. Compact storage is nice and I can put the machine, hose, etc. away on a shelf in the garage. I doesn't seem as powerful as I think it should be but the trade off is convenient storage, well thought out design. You also have the option of two different dust filters, the drum and the bag. When I vacuum sawdust, I wrap an old t-shirt around the drum so I don't have to brush out the drum "fins" every time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tips over - deal breaker it is a good compromise off small footprint yet strong suction,and I really wanted to like this vac, but... - somewhat top-heavy and very prone to falling over: a) when the flex hose is extended, or b) when the hose or attachment is flush against an object,(cleaning a floor with the end at an angle, it works great; but put the end flush against a carpet and the suction power immediately tips the vac over - unit does not seal tight, the top does not clamp down tight to the bottom, not a problem when it sits on the floor, but if you lift the vac while using it, the top lifts up just a fraction, and I suspect loses suction power

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power and portable. This is a great "little" vacuum. It could be your go-to all the time. However I use this for small clean up but has the power of my big vac. The hose is excellent and the feature that is great is when you have the nosel in the storage spot it works as a dust pan. This also uses the normal size filter so you don't have to buy different sizes and can get the double pack and take advantage of the savings.
