Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Can't go wrong What can i say. When i 1st started my business, vacumns would last 6 months before the motor/bearings would fail...i work with fine dust. I used a small shop vac, then a stinger. Both died a loud horrible death. Kept wondering why they can't make a professional small portable vacumn. Then Ridgid came out with this. Been using it for 4 yrs with the same filter. I rinse out the filter every month with my garden hose, let it dry and back to work it goes. It will run for an hour at a time 2 or 3 times a day. It fits in the cab of my truck and is easy to carry. I also use the professional hose with the included hose for for really long reach. The power cord is very long which is gr8 for houses with few outlets. Would defintely buy again......if it ever dies. November 22, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong, Well-built & Compact I just picked it up in store and love it. Have the same suction power as my big shop vac, but compact enough to be carried around the house and into tight area such as attic. Well-built with quality plastic and solid locking latches, not like my Dewalt portable which feels cheaply made. Overall a good product at a good price. Well worth my investment. Certainly recommend for its compactness/suction power ratio. December 11, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 15 Litre Portable Pro Wet/Dry Vac I find this light weight wet/dry Vac as powerful and as efficient as a larger machine. It is convenient to use for small jobs like cleaning the car, due to it's size and light weight, yet was ideal for clean-up when we renovated our basement. February 27, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 9 yrs old - great ! Been using this vac because my corgi's shed 1-2 sweaters a day. Can't believe it's lasted this long. It's lasted longer than every shop vac i've ever owned. December 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great shop vac ! This vac is the perfect size for home use, indoors and out. It is lightweight and carries easily to the garage or indoors. Even my wife uses it ! June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice compact shop vac! Vacuum is a very convenient size with plenty of suction. This is my second time purchasing this product and the first is still working at 9 years old. June 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Odd hose size. This is a great vac if you are looking for small size and powerfull performance. Like mentioned before, it uses a non-traditional hose size. You can't use the small 1 1/4" size or large 2 1/2" size tools on the end of the hose included with this vac. So if you are like me, and are buying this vac to replace an aging model. You will not be able to use crevice, floor, or other attachments without buying a new standard(1 1/4" or 2 1/2") hose or the few 1 7/8" parts you find online. I highly recommend this model vacuum. I also recommend you include a Wet/Dry Vac Accessory Kit with your order. I chose the: RIDGID 5-Pc 1-1/4 In. Car Detailing Kit - Model VT2524. October 23, 2006
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality Control Received the Rigid 4 gal, 5 HP Vac via UPS from Home Depot. Set it up and turned it on to try cleaning up some dog hair. It ran exactly 2 minutes before shutting off and refusing to start. Tried numerous outlets to no avail. Returned to Home Depot and got a refund. Went to Lowes and bought a Shop Vac of similar HP and size. This is the second Rigid Vac that I have returned in less than 30 days, first one had broken part on delivery. April 9, 2015
