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.

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.

I bought this when it first came out which must be at least 10 years ago. I use it for household projects, cleaning the cars, etc. Relatively small footprint. Good cord length. EXCELLENT suction. Uses a somewhat expensive Ridgid filter. I change the filters about every 2-3 years, and it's easy. I don't use the long hose much. It's too inflexible. I'd rather carry the vac with me than wrestle with that hose. Decent tool assortment. They now carry the 1 7/8" accessories in the stores, and I bought the floor brush recently. I really like the tool caddy, but it should have some sort of latch to keep it from inadvertently getting knocked off. Anything in the garage that hangs on the wall off the floor has my vote. As a consequence of that, the divertable exhaust is on the front. Takes a little getting used to, but isn't much of a bother. I was chronically aggravated by the lack of wheels on the bottom. I had to pick up and move the vac whenever I ran out of hose. Gets old fast. However I recently discovered that there were molded holes for 5/16" stem casters on the bottom. Paid ~$5 for a set of four at HD. Now it follows me wherever I go, and I'm happy. If the quality is still the same, I would easily but this again.

Wall mounted in my garage. Does a GREAT job! The vac is very powerful and nicely designed. Cleans the dog hair out of my car quickly and comes with enough hose to clean my entire one car garage. Had it shipped to store and it came in 2 days. Couldn't ask for more.
