Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bstallard Detailers Beware!
As the title says DETAILERS BEWARE: I have now been through several of these kits in the last 6 months.. The fitting on the end of the hose always seems to fall off and will not allow you to finish sweeping your customers vehicle. This kit is not for your pro/weekend warrior detailer, I would maybe suggest it for someone who likes to sweep their car out once in a while.
Serious detailers do not waste your money! See attached pictures.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KEvans Meh... not impressed.
I think I get more suction using my 2 1/2 inch hose over the hose that comes with this. The crevice tool is nice. The brush for the dash is questionable. You can buy the attachments and use your hose but don't forget to get a 2 1/2 to 1 1/4 coupler. The crevice tool is longer and flexible in this kit, not the standard hard crevice tool, so make sure you you find that one. Here's the link.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bimmerdan OK, but I wouldn't buy again
The extra long hose is very nice, but it always pulls out of the fitting, the attachments are pretty good, but with the reduction in the hose size sucking power is about half of the normal vacuum. If I did it again I would have just bought attachments for my 2 gallon vacuum.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tyler Nice set but some things need fixing
I bought this set to go along with my WD1450. The smaller, more flexible hose works a lot better than the standard 2.5" black hose with dust collection on mobile tools and for things like detailing. The attachments are all of decent quality with the exception of the claw nozzle which is garbage. It appears to be made of thinner gauge plastic and isn't at all close to fitting the end of the hose, it's at least 1/8" (ID) too big to fit onto the included hose. It's almost like it was molded wrong or is missing some kind of grippy bushing inside it. If you don't plan on using the claw nozzle its still a good set. If you want to use the claw nozzle, plan on sleeving the inside somehow or purchasing another attachment.
Another note, the hose can be unthreaded from it's end by turning it opposite of normal thread direction, if yours feels loose try tightening it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Ridgid vacuum car cleaning kit
I was in the market for a replacement hose for my vac. The store clerk told me this kit contained the same hose as the premium orange hose they sell as a replacement, and I would get the car cleaning kit parts as a plus, for only a few bucks more. The box says that the hose fits ALL Ridgid vacs. When I got it home and tried it, I found that it did not fit. I called customer service. They told me that it did not in fact fit my vac, it fit the (junk, broken) hose that came with my vac. This is the hose that kinks that I was trying to replace. Save your money and don't buy this kit if you need to replace your kinked hose.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by drjimdmd Accessory Documentation poor
Vacuum is excellent, but comes with only one tool. There is no documentation on the box what size hose comes with the tool. Additional accessories come in a few sizes and the stores I went to had these all mixed up in the bins they were supposed to be in. Took multiple trips to store to fully equip the unit with all necessary accessories.The manual does not specify the hose diameter either.
Additional extension tubes which come with most other vacs are not included. Total cost to outfit this tool is greater than their more powerful vacs which come with many more accessores standard.
Seems a lot to pay for a portable in light of above.

Easy to use, flexible and well made in comparison to the attachments and hose you get with the vacuum. I do allot of dryer vent cleaning and needed the special hose attachments to get deep within the dryer unit. Overall, great vacuum power, longer hose, definitely a must have package item for all of your cleaning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by matt Good not great
The extra length from the hose and brushes are great. But the attachments do not lock in very well and you are forced to hold them together to really work them. Good for cleaning up the car but they could have made the attachments hold better and this would be a home run. Also an attachment specifically for dog hair would be great.
