We found this product to be very useful in our detailing shop. The hose is lite weight and easy to manage and a perfect length. The brushes speed up our time spent cleaning by removing excess dust and dirt in a hurry. The claw is excellent for cleaning larger areas fast. The crevice attachment works awesome as it is thin, longer than most and the bendable area in the middle lets you reach really hard to get at areas. On-a-whole it has drastically speeded up our cleaning time. We would highly recommend this kit to everyone !

After 20 yrs of service(not commercial) my 4.25 hp wet/dry shop vac is still going strong.Although i am not in busness this unit has worked with me during 4 garage builds, several home renovations, buliding additions,basement rebuilds and all the spring cleans and auto cleans that occured during this period of time. The tools I had to replace were due to wearing out from use and not from manufacturing or material failure. After all these years of service the ends of the hose fell apart,from long use and being banged around in the back of the pick up or falling down stairs or whatever other missuse I subjected it to. I purchased a new heavy duty hose which failed after 4 uses , it separated in the middle. I wrote to Ridgid to explain my problem and to my delight the nice people at Ridgid relaced the new hose WITHOUT HASSLES AND WITHOUT EXCUSSES. I would rate this unit as excellent in all the above catagories save the energy efficency as I have no Idea nor do I honestly care. As youcan see from the brief outline of how this vac has stood upto time it is clearly an excellent choice when thikling of buying one and there are far more job specific tools available today. Even the casters are original, even though they have absorbed many severe falls from sizable

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Skip Was really excited about this ...just not worth it
First off, like all Ridgid accessories, this is high quality. I bought this kit because it seemed like the perfect thing to pair with my new 12gal Ridgid vac. The price tag was a little steep for accessories but I said what the heck.
The "premium" hose is nice and is a great deal more flexible than the stock one. It looks almost identical to the "professional" hose which is 4x as strong but do not be fooled, this is is stronger but only 2x as much as stock. Don't go dropping cinder blocks on it, haha.
I found the suction with the hose to be lack luster. I did use the crevice tool on the blow function to uproot all of the dust and to get between the seats, which worked great..The brushes worked alright. Even after pre brushing the floor mats before hand, and hitting them with the blower, I still had to scrub like crazy with these brushes to get out the last bits of sand. Living in CA and liking to go to the beach...this is a huge pain. It wasn't any better for this task than my stock attachments and that's the main particulate I have to deal with.
Overall i was looking for something that could live up to this $40 price tag. In the end I just ended up using the stock hose with the provided attachments. What you pay for most is the hose..I'd recommend getting the hardwood/carpet attachment and the crevice tool/dusting brush pack to use with your stock hose. You'll get the same features (albeit with a stiffer hose, but i didn't find any troubles in using it) for about $16 less. And if you're getting it to get out sand or other little particles, the brushes just don't do much of a better job than the stock utility nozzles and a brush.

After hours of using this on my vehicle, I have come to the conclusion, I need a new vehicle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CleanCarGuy Pricey but very functional
$40 seems like a lot for this but really what you're buying here is the long and flexible hose. Attached to the shop Vac (I've got the Ridgid 1270) it makes cleaning out the interior of a car much easier than trying to use the larger hose that comes with the shop vac. The attachments are cheap molded plastic but fit nicely when using the provided adapter. The hose is the shining jewel here - it's easy to use and plenty long enough for cleaning a mid sized sedan.
As far as the attachments go the crevice tool is a real keeper. It's long and flexible - makes it easy to get under the front seat when coming in from the side. The claw tool works great on the carpet. The brush tools seem to be pretty similar (one has stiffer bristles than the other - but the difference to me isn't much) and work well although you don't have as much suction on them due to the larger opening.
If you're into keeping a clean interior for your car and have the 40 clams to spare this is worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappySweeper Not cheap, but works very well!
I'm very happy with this purchase. The price was a lot to spend, at least for me. After all, it's mostly going to be used for vacuuming our vehicles. Wow! Was I ever thrilled to see how well everything worked. It made the job so much easier, faster and effective. The hose was plenty long enough, fitted onto my existing 2.5" hose with the supplied adapter. I have a van and a pretty good-sized SUV. The brushes and crevice tool are well made and made short, enjoyable work out of cleaning up after the kids and clearing all of the dust out of the dash. It was a really good purchase. It makes clean up much easier!
