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 5 out of 5Â by Mike Just what was needed for a tight garage
I got tired of trying to find a spot for my super sized rigid vacuum that went under utilized. So I sold it on craiglist and purchased this one. Overall, I'm happy with it. I can see that it might be hard to get much for accessories, however it comes with enough for the average user. The main thing I would like is additional hose lengths so that I can leave it on the wall and still reach around the car.
A few things could be designed better. Such as the wall mount brackets (has just one row of holes for hitting the stud), or the accessories mount (can only be mounted on the right side). But overall it gets the job done as needed.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by geo392 great vacuum / incompatible dust-port for shop tools
Pros: great power; easy going from vacuum to blower and back.
Cons: non-standard hose.
Like other users said, the vacuum hose is incompatible with all my tools including a RIDGID 10 in. Sliding Compound Miter Saw (imagine that - same vendor). I tried diferent accessories from homedepot but you cannot get this vacuum to fit any dust ports. I will try to build the adapters myself, but if you buy this vacuum as a "shop vacumm", you might want to look somewhere else.
