Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tinkie Great Home Vac
I was looking to buy a home canister vac to replace my heavy, hard to use Kirby upright vac due to back problems. This vac with a couple extra accessories was cheaper than all other casnister vacs and cheaper than the brand name -Shop Vac. Great vac with fantastic suction- better suction than a small Shop Vac and some larger ones also. Light weight, easy to use. The tool holder made into the vac body is a great feature. My complaint is the hose. Mine doesn't kink but has no flexibility, it is very rigid, no pune intended. It does cause the job to be a bit harder to vac wth especially in tighter places. Rigid needs more adapters such as one that will connect to the 1 1/4 end of the flexible hose that comes with the auto detailing kit which is a great kit to add to your vac accessory arsenal but even with the adaptor kit that has an adapter that is 1 7/8 to 1 1/4, you can't put two 1 1/4 ends together!!! The flexibily hose is almost a nesessity. Shop Vac brand come with this same kind of hard none flexible hose. I believe Rigid needs to make 2 more accessories for this vac which then would make the vac perfect for not only shop vac use but also a home vac use. One, an adaptor that curves from the wand to the hose for ease holding and movement. Two, its own size, 1 7/8, floor/carpet nozzle. I bought the 1 1/4 floor/carpet nozzle with an adaptor and it works, but would get a better suction if it was 1 7/8 from nozzle to wand. Plus the wand bulkyness over powers the small nozzle. Over all it is a wonderful, light weight, great suction vac for home use. This is a long review but most people shop and purchase based upon the reviews to a product. Hope Ridgid reads their consumer reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by vfalken Workhorse wet/dry vac, RIGID quality!
This vacuum has given me years of reliable service. It has powerful suction, quiet operation and many other handy features like the blower feature. The 4 gal tank is large enough to tackle most projects and the design is not bulky. This is my first RIGID product. RIGID backs their vacuums with a strong warranty and exceptional customer service "after the sale". Seeing is believing, put this vac to the test and see why any tool I add to my arsenal is going to be a RIGID.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Easy Strong vac for this size.
I just bought this and I used the optional bag to catch the debris I was cleaning up(bird seed and outdoor carpeting crud). This thing almost sucked the carpeting up, very strong however the optional bags don't allow alot of room for waste. Much easier to clean up though. Overall I like this unit, easy to move and quick release top make it a snap to use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oldsaltydog A great utility shop vac
Small, but strong suction. Accessary tip is different but cleans my vehicle very well. I found the tip better for vacuuming fabric in my truck. Easy to move around with. lifetime warranty, doesn't get any better.
