Rated 5 out of 5 Good intermediate level tool, competatively priced, very usefull
Decided on this unit over the 4.5 gal rigid "toolbox" style shopvac, because the price was the same, yet this has better CFM numbers, and while not as compact, this one still leverages a compact rectangular shape. Pros: full range of accessories, handy external hang on accessory tote, nice long cord and hose, powerful, good rocker on off switch, and of course the hanging dock that lets you put it up on the wall if you are so inclined. The only con to me is the secondary "pull along" hose, is too short to use comfortably with both wands while standing to vacuum, it should be about another foot long, but for use with one wand, crawling around on the floor, or cleaning out the car, should be fine. Would be nice if they had a wheel dolly available, and stocked this vacuum in the stores. The free shipping and delivery 3 days ahead of schedule mostly made up for that. A word of caution that the vacuum comes in a box without any internal cushioning of protective cardboard barriers, so make sure your UPS driver does not toss it over the fence if you are not home, as damage will surely result. If this does not die prematurely, I will feel I made a good purchase here, and even there it has a very good warranty. Country of origin could not be found anywhere, but the manual is printed in Mexico, so perhaps it's made there, so in a era of traditional US name brands being Chinese manufactured, not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Conk Ridgid vacuum
Ridgid ..Quality product & quality Company
I have a Ridgid shop vacuum that hangs on the wall. It quit working so I called Ridgid. No problem return it and they would fix or replace. Gave me a number and instruction. Took vacuum back to Home Depot and they returned it. Within two weeks I had a new vacuum. I've had a number of shop vacuums and usually the hose will split. Ridgid has a wonderful flexible hose that will hold up and has great length and I love the ability to hang on the wall. I would highly recommend Ridgid products as they stand behind their product and customer service is exceptional
Thanks to Larry at the Bellingham store for his assistance.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bill Jury is still out.
Just purchased this vac and have only used it once to clean the garage floor. What I like so far is the wall mount installation was simple and with the 21 feet of extension I can clean my two car garage without having to take it off the mount. I replaced a Shop Vac I had for years with this Rigid vac when the Shop Vac motor burned up. My first impression of performance of the Rigid is it does not have as much suction force as the Shop Vac. The motor amps are about the same between the two. Makes me wonder if the larger hose size or the length of the hose are the issue. The larger size could cause less suction velocity and the lenght may be causing less overall air volume than the Shop Vac that was a roll around unit with only 7 feet of hose.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Vino Features good, functions, adequate
I chose this unit because of the limited space I have in my garage. It was the only unit that would fit and still let me park both cars. The wall mount and the way all the fittings are organized is great. The hard fact revealed itself when I turned it on. It had just enough power to properly clean, but no more than that. Cleaning sawdust from my van's carpet took far too long and far too many passes with many of the fittings.
If I had more space, I would opt for a more powerful model.
