Customer 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.

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 460.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barber Shop MUST HAVE! I own a busy Barber Shop and this vacuum caught my eye mainly because of the built in dust pan. This has been a great help in keeping my shop clean! Simply turn it on and sweep the loose hair towards the vacuum and Voila! it's gone. The small amount that is missed on the first pass is taken care of with a second. It's a bit noisy, but so is the shop - so it's not out of place at all. Looks sharp sitting on the floor - no need to hide this bad boy. After registering, I have no service worries that this will not last. To all Barbers and Salon owners out there - GET THIS TODAY! You will thank me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 gallon? Too small and tall which tips over too easy. On top of that, filter takes up what little room there is in the tank, so it's more like a half gallon, not 3. Hose is terrible, it tips the vacuum over everytime. Two thumbs down,

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 Compact, Powerful and Convenient! I have a much larger 16 Gallon Vacuum, but it is too big for quick jobs and vacuuming my cars. This compact powerhouse is perfect for quick jobs. It is small enough to keep in my single car garage, always on hand When needed, has plenty of power and a full-size filter to keep dust inside the canister where it belongs. I highly recommend this compact powerhouse! I did purchase a Ridgid crevasse tool and brush, but the included attachment is perfect for most uses, including the carpets in my car.

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.

My favorite feature is the flexible lock-on hose. My previous shop vac has a very stiff and hard to manage hose that often caused the canister to tip over. Not the case here. This one stretches and flexes easily, and has a handy hose storage system. It uses the hose attachment storage on the side as a vacuum dust pan. Set it down and sweep toward the feature, dirt is sucked up.

Hose could be a little longer, when stretching it to reach the canister will flip causing the ball to plug suction, then have to turn it off and put canister upright to continue task at hand
