Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Has the power to do what it's suppose to do. Only a week old, cleaned up the mess I've been making scraping the popcorn off the ceilings Needed a larger hose, my old Shop-Vac still works (20 years old)! Hose is to small. I'll see if this last as long. May 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best wet vac or shop clean up. I purchased this model to clean up water from the flooding of super storm Sandy. My garage was a mess with water everywhere, in tool boxes, cabinets and containers. The 9 gallon size is perfect to clean up with and convenient to use. I also use this wet vac to winterize my spa and it works exceptionally well. Because of it's size and attachments, cleaning up in my shop is easy and thorough and emptying is simple. I consider this an excellent addition to my tools and accessories. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Picks up everything in its way Needed to get a new shop vac to replace the one that broke. After reading reviews I went with the Rigid and there is no doubt it was the right choice. The inside of my truck can get dirty from the dog and kids sports and hauling mulch or dirt. No matter what it is, this vac picks it clean. Tons of sucking power and not a lot of noise. I would have liked it to come with a crevice tool to get those hard to reach areas but otherwise a great product. November 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I wouldn't own anythong else !!!! Of all the "shop vacs" I've used or owned, this is the absolute best. Even with a slightly to moderately dirty filter, it still does the job. I even use it to blow out my underground 1 1/2" plastic pool heater lines for winter - another bonus - I feel the way about my Ridgid shop vac as others do about their guns - "just try to take it from me" Whether its liquid, small particles and dust, And, if it ever dies, I'll get another, NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and great brand for the price I needed a shop vac for projects I do around the house. Since I don't do a bunch of major projects, the 9 gallon size was the perfect size for my jobs. I do side construction jobs with a buddy and after using some of his ridgid tools, notcing the durability, the warranty and more, I thought the ridgid shop vac would be a great fit for the price and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I've had it over a year now and have no complaints. November 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent wet pick up I have this vac for 2 reasons; car cleaning and wet cleanup. My waterheater busted this fall, and I am so glad I had it. I cleaned up the water quickly. I only wish that I had bought a bigger one. For car cleanup, it does the trick. It's obviously not built to pull dog hair from the floors, but it does a fairly descent job, with good suction. I would definitely recommend this vacuum, especially for wet pick up. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great for everyday use I bought this 9 gallon a few months ago, and I must say it's amazing! The suction capacity was just right for the every day needs.. With the proper accessories this wet dry vac is very versatile. From cleaning pet hair to water flooding it has been a important asset in our chore lives. The 7 1/8 inch diameter on the wand is a perfect size for our needs. Don't hesitate, get one! November 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome vacuum and great price! I purchased this vac about a year ago and use it all the time in my basement and work areas. Quick clean-up with the attachements and extensions are longer so its easy on your back. Highly recommend this vacuum or any other one from Ridgid. Mine came with a car attachment that has an LED light built in, works great in those hard to reach areas that aren't well lit. Thank you for making excellent tools!! November 24, 2014
