Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Great Portable Wet/Dry Vac
It's a great vac with lots of suction. It's small enough to carry around from job to job.
The height of this vac is listed wrong. It is listed as 14.5" but is actually more like 16" without the extension tube stored which would make it even taller. Rigid Web site lists it as 16.75"
You can use any of the 2.5 inch hoses and attachments. The hose that is sent has a built in reducer on the end.
The hose that comes with it, is a bit stiff as some of the other reviews have said.
There is a place to store all of the attachments, power cord, and even the hose. The pictures never show the hose stored. Maybe because it's not the greatest storage of the hose. According to the instructions, you wrap the hose in a loop twice and connect the two ends together then wrap in the same location as the electric cord. The problem is that the hose is made so cheap that it will collapse and kink if it's rolled that tight. So I do almost the same thing but just don't connect the two ends so that the loop is not as tight as to start kinking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Read123Reviews GREAT VACUUM
A tradesman had one of these when doing work at my home. I was so impressed that I went to Home Depot and purchased one. It does a way better job than the $450.00 Miele that it replaced. Only complaint is that it lacks a few accessories straight out of the box. I got purchased separately a vacuum bag and a attachment to do floors. All in all not bad for under $100.00 for everything. I really gives this product a very high rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bigdaddynova Perfect size and lots of power!
This Vac has lots of power. I like the fact that it has a small tank with a 5hp motor. It rolls good and does NOT tip over every time you pull on the hose like other brands tend to do. Would have been nice if it came with a bristle brush. I have used it a couple hours and have zero complaints.

I have owned a few shopvacs. This one cost $80. Do not buy a cheaper one. They are near useless. I love this one. Lightweight and powerful. Easy to empty and clean filter. I do not plan to use it for water. Uses are garage, patio, and truck cleaning. Powerful; it just kills my regular house vac.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Susie Works great
Vacuum is easy to use and has very strong suction. I'm glad it takes vacuum bags because this way I won't need to clean it out. My only negative is that the attachments do not work well for vacuuming a carpet--they're simply not made for that, and the hose is bigger than the attachments on regular vacuums, so I can't use an attachment I already have. I bought the shop vac to use while figuring out what is wrong with my built-in vac. Once that's figured out and the built in is repaired or replaced, my plan is to give the shop vac to my son and his family who are now waiting for the closing date on a fixer-upper. They will need a good shop vac. :-)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unknown Great purchase!
Purchased this vacuum at Home Depot for two reasons, quality and performance. I needed a good car vacuum to replace my old one which was a small Shop vac, which worked great for years. The new Shop vac comparable model (from my old one) is made like junk, very cheap plasticy looking and opted to upgrade to this Home Depot vacuum instead. Yes, a little more money but well worth it. I have used it quite of few times already and it definitely performs well, long electrical cord, longer hose but unfortunately I still needed to purchase a large crevice tool attachment that it does not come with, I'm sure by Home Depot's design, still was worth it!

Excellent suction, even with the multi-tools. We haven't tries the wet suck yet. We have been using it on a remodel, and it gets the drywall dust up like nothing else!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by joal excitedly hopeful, sadly disappointed
I liked the size, the mobility and the attachments. Which is what attracted me to purchasing it.
The suction was good, tho the blower part felt a bit lacking.
I would have kept it and recommended it IF the hose (and its clip) were better made.
It has a nice size hose but it was far too stiff and inflexible, which is probably why the very cheap plastic clip meant to keep the hose attached to the device broke on the first use - thus the hose kept popping out.
It's suppose to be a nice mobile unit- but the hose really does not work well with it.
