This newly designed RIDGID 12-gal. High Performance Wet/Dry Vacuum is designed for Pros and DIYers who want a traditionally styled, medium sized vacuum that delivers the powerful performance and rugged durability required for job site clean-up. Its 5 peak HP motor delivers the suction power necessary to handle tough clean-up chores.

However, it still offers the capacity to handle large messes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely useful and very reliable product This shop vac has been very useful and a very reliable product for as long as i've owned it. Never had any problems with it. It works just as well cleaning up wet messes as it does dry ones. November 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This RIDGID Shop Vac Saved my Kitchen I can't live without my RIDGID Shop vac. It has come through time and time again in ways I never thought possible. I ran out and bought my RIDGID Shop Vac when the water line to our refrigerator broke and flooded our new kitchen. I used it to suck up the water, then I put it in reverse and left it blowing hot air into the walls for 3 DAYS straight to dry out our cabinets and walls. THE KITCHEN AND MY RIDGID SHOP VAC SURVIVED!!!! http://opensitewebexchange.blogspot.com/2014/05/my-ridgid-shop-vac-is-amazing.html Listen to the bonus RIDGID Shop Vac Speeding Motor Cycle Sound Effects in the video. Enjoy! September 8, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loving this Vac I am remodeling my bathroom and needed something to get all the trash out. This Vac does the job very well. I have not ran into any problems with this product and would recommend to others. April 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lots of power This Vac has good suction. Works well. I did have a plastic part of the wheel caster brake off in the first two weeks I had it, I was just rolling it across the concrete floor. One of these days I will get it ordered.I still recommend it. March 24, 2014
