great service
I’m writing this review for the product as well as the service Ridgid provided. I bought the equivalent vac 25 years ago and it finally died this year. I went online and filled out the warranty claim which was extremely easy. I received an email saying the claim was under review which may take a couple of weeks. Just less than 2 weeks later i get a package via fedex ant it was a COMPLETE new shop bac in the box. New everything including hose, filter and attachments! No questions asked. I figured I’d have pushback due to the age but no. They’ve earned a lifetime customer in me and I’m spreading the word. Biggest vonus is theyr’re made in the USA, Ohio! Highly recommend! 5 stars!!!!!

    Disappointed with easy made product.
    Side clip put in the box was NOT the right one. Disappointed. Do I return the whole thing for a new clip? Do I contact customer service and have them send me a new one ? Sooo annoying.

      Hidden cost
      I just bought this vacuum and before I could even use it for the specific purpose, a wet application, I found out that I needed to purchase a special foam filter that is NOT included in the package. Like me you might be saying about now how odd it is that Ridgid/Home Depot would be selling a product for a specific role without the proper filters. But wait! There's more. You think that not good but no bid deal and to me you'd be wrong. Well when you go online like I did to find the filter you realize that is is going to cost $24. That's right $24 for a filter that is going on a vacuum that cost me $79. Check out the filter in the attached image. what's your guess on cost to produce that filter? my guess is $3-5 and I am being generous... So doing the math you find that that simple filter cost 30% of the cost of the vacuum and the idea that you getting a good deal simply fades from view. So now this vacuum is 103.00. How does that compare. So my warning to you all. Mind the hidden costs.

      Hello DanK,

      Thank you for your review and we’re sorry to learn about your disappointment. While we don’t know the kind of liquid that you are picking up, please note that when larger amounts of liquid are to be picked up, you can just remove the original filter, but not the Filter Cage or Float, to prevent the Filter from becoming saturated with liquid. If the Filter becomes saturated, you may see “mist” coming from the Blowing Port. For vacuuming up small amounts of liquid (less than 2” (5 cm) collected in Dust Drum) does not require Filter removal. We only suggest that the wet foam filter is used if you are vacuuming high volume liquid with water-borne debris. Home Depot store also offers the same vacuum model that includes the wet filter (HD1200C). https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-12-Gal-5-0-Peak-HP-NXT-Wet-Dry-Shop-Vacuum-with-Filter-Hose-Accessories-and-Wet-Application-Filter-HD1200C/307814581
      For any other questions, please call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

        This vacuum is a cleaning beast! If you’re trying to decide on vacuums, look no further, this is the one, great for big jobs like clearing your garage from sawdust everywhere to handling detailing your car or any chore you need to tackle!

        Priced well + Lifetime Warranty
        I don’t have a fancy vac so I decided to get some real power and reliability to use in any situation in the house, outside, in the car and for psychological validation. I’m allergic to dust and if I sneeze in public ppl freak out so I gotta clean. Got HEPA filter/osha dust bag set too, which cost a lot but now I’m osha compliant! The blower in the back also stirs up more dust so I purchased the muffler to diffuse some of the air coming out. The caster wheels roll easily, but the vac is too big for tight spaces, so I got the detailing attachment/hose set and extended the length of my hose to about 15 ft. I may have spent as much on accessories as I did on the vac but now I can confidently use it to clean and grunt like that tool guy from the 90s sitcom after all the modding. I don’t know which add-on causes this, but it’s got a loud whistle like a jet engine turbo so I gotta put on headphones and jam to some Skynyrd with my beer hat. Best of all - 12 gallon model is cheaper than the 4 gallon model, which we also own, I like the size of that one but this one is a monster. In my opinion, unless you need the smaller size, get this one. I’m so much more satisfied with it.

          I purchased this vacuum mainly for use in my small shop. It is inline with the "Duststopper" that is available at HD. They both are connected to my DeWalt table saw. With the convenience of the long 2 1/2 diameter hose I can easily disconnect it from the saw and attach to my router table or planer. This really keeps the dust and debris down.

          We love Ridgid equipment, and this vacuum is no exception. It has great suction power, was easy to put together (just attaching the casters, hoses, etc), and has worked great so far. We have only had it a few weeks, but it is easy to use and clean. I like all the attachments that it comes with, and that they can all be stored on it. We previously had a craftsman vacuum and this has blown it out of the water in terms of section power, attachments, and ease of carrying/wheeling. I bought this for my husband for his birthday, but my 2.5 yo thinks it was for him and asks me everyday if we can vacuum the cars or "use the shopvac".

          This thing is amazing.
          I got this shop vac to use for numerous projects. The day I got it I had it set up and ready to go within a few minutes. I first used it to vacuum out my car and it was the cleanest the cars interior and floor has ever been. I went to vacuum the floor mat and this thing picked up the floor mat off the ground it sucks to hard. I also just recently used it to clean out a clogged drain pipe that goes to the sewer with the extra long hose attachment I purchased separately.
