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.

My old shop-vac died over a year ago. Wow has this product changed. Better suction and all around better features. Everything is easily kept on-board so no more missing parts. Much more stable on its wheels, no tipping over!

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.

We work in the Hearth industry and use this vac for chimney cleans and ash clean up. Have not noticed any ash getting through the filter and out the exhaust port. We clean the filter often which is not a difficult process, just a few minutes each time. I love rigid vacs and plan on buying another one.

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.
