Does it come with a bag or do I have to buy it separately?

It has no drain? How do you pour water from it? Also, it has no handles, so how do you pick it up to carry up basement stairs say, full of water?

Asked by: WoodyWW
You can pick it up with handles built into the unit. The handles serve as clasps for the top motor assembly and are stick out enough to work. My problem is that 9 gallons of water weighs about 70 pounds and that's too heavy to lift - without the top part, so it's completely open - without slopping water out. If you are outside, you could just tip the unit, but indoors, it's not so easy.

9 gal. 4.25-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 568.

Very helpful for removing leaves and dust blown in when garage door open and for vacuuming car carpeting. Product has extremely strong suction. Now in April 2017 purchased 1-1/4 in. - 1-7/8 in. x 7 ft. Tug-A-Long Vacuum Hose to extend displacement of the vac from working area. Longer hose has not noticeably reductd suction. Use for vacuuming all carpeted stairs in home. The vac's very strong suction provides better carpet cleaning than from our Dyson hand held vac with electric motorized brush head. The Ridgid 9 gal Wet Dry vac has been a great investment.

I came home to water running out of my garage, this was puzzling since there is no water outlets in the garage. I opened the garage door and found water pouring out of the ceiling, seems a toilet up stairs decided it was time for a change in flooring. I stopped the water and immediately looked for my old shop vac, of course it was broken. A quick trip to Home Depot and I am the proud owner of a new Ridgid 9 gal. wet vac. It performed like a dream, sucked up 9 gallons in no time flat, I would like to say that was all the water, but 2 more trips to empty it and all that was left to do was start the clean out and call the insurance company. Bottom line is you need this BEFORE it becomes a necessary. Works great, I hope you never have to suck water out of your upstairs.

While this was a spur of the emergency purchase (I had a water leak), the vacuum did its job without hesitation; it sucks, in a good sort of way. Assembly was straightforward and accomplished within a few minutes. The accessories were adequate. The wheels are large enough to easily roll over door thresholds. The only thing I find lacking on it is a built-in drain, with or without a hose pipe fitting. Maybe when the warranty is up I'll retrofit a drain.

I had hoped that some of the attachments (we have many) would work with the new unit but no such luck. The hose on this unit is shorter and does not seem as durable. On the plus side the filter seems better than the paper filter for the Shop Vac, and the on/off switch is much better (the switch on the Shop Vac was very bad). The new unit does the job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 4.25 hp is skirting it For DIY only, 5 hp is the minimum you need for weekly use. Home Depot is taking profit on this one....lower price to $39.99, come on Home Depot, you held your margin mostly during the recession, but now you all gouging on many items.. Long for the days of more trade stores, you've ruined the industry with your cheap hire help....the original philosophy of Home Depot was wiped out in 1998...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable product I like that his vacuum. It works well when I connect to a few saws I own. It sucks up water very well. Only down side for me is the Attachments do not hook onto the vacuum so they get lost rather wasy.
Date published: 2017-07-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works ok, easy to manuever works ok, but I would like more power than it has, doesn't suck up things as easily as I would like. And the attachments do not include a small, narrower nozzle which might help.

After having used it for awhile all I can tell you is that it's a piece of junk. First of all the extensions are connected poorly and flex like they are going to break when vacuuming. The tool that come with it are practically useless. Unfortunately I have a 15 gal Craftsman that spoiled me. I almost 20 years old and the motor is finally giving out. It's a work horse and made to last. The Ridgid can't hold a candle to the Craftsman. I wouldn't have even purchased the Ridgid but my smaller ShopVac finally gave up the ghost. It too was built to last I can't see the Ridgid lasting over 2 years. Wouldn't buy it again at half the price.
