Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by doingit 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kskarma A top-notch product..
This vacuum combines several great features that many other units just don't have. First of all, it's a smaller unit which makes it easier to store, others all seem to be big round units that are always in the way, this one can be tucked under a bench, in a closet, etc. Next is the actual suction of it...it beats all but a full size shop vac with 2 1/2 inch hose, certainly plenty of vacuum and air flow for any job I need. I also like the fact that when not in use, you can store the hose and nozzle right on the unit and not have to figure out where to put those items when not in use. Ridgid...you did a great job with this one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mlellis018 Perfect portable vacuum
Perfect back for small jobs such as cars and doing work away from home. Like the dust pan feature. Just plug in sweep toward vac, done. I ordered the optional brush, I use 90% of the time. Nice if it was included and if they offered a battery option.
Quality was 4 because had to return one for a bad bearing after a year of use. Bought one for work too, no issues. Perfect size.

I have the larger vacuum but needed the smaller more versatile one as well. It works great for what I need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chapbill Perfect Size
This shop vac is not at all clunky like the larger ones. You can lift it easily and transport it to the car, the back yard, into the RV, and anyplace because it is so lightweight and portable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coopmsbg Excellent Portable Vac
Only had it for a short time but wish I had bought it a long time ago. Perfect size and plenty of power to get the job done. Use it for my car, around the house and workshop. So much nicer than lugging around a larger unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sjordsn Just the right size for small jobs
I use this to clean up small areas of the carpet after the dog could not hold it while we were away or when the dog or kids track mud in. It works great. Spray cleaner on the spot. Brush it in pour water on it. Suck it up with the shop vac. Mess all gone! Beats dragging around the 5 gallon size.

Fired it up tonight and just love it. Also the newer model has the LED light on the nozzle for the car.
this thing is power full ... going to use it on our stairs in our apartment as well.
