I have been impressed with this shop/vac. I have used it to vacuum the car, the house and odd spots on the outside of the house. For the car, the attachments did a good job of getting into all the cracks as well as the main body of the carpet. For the house, it was the same. Where I have found this really useful is vacuuming out the vents and drains on the outside of the house. It gets all the leaves, rocks and debris which keeps the vents and drains open. For the blower part, this works well, I have a gas blower and so I can’t see using the blower of the shop vac but for someone without a separate blower, this would be a good option. It comes with a lot of attachments and extra bags. It seems like a good product for a good value. The cord is long, and the vacuum is powerful. The only drawback I see is choosing which attachment to use (which isn’t really a drawback). The attachments all fit on the caddie somewhere which is convenient.

Holy overachieving shop vacs! I'm impressed! This RIDGID NXT (model HD1260) 12 gallon, 6.0 peak HP, wet/dry vac with detachable blower came with nearly everything I needed to get to work. Sure there are a few extras I want to get, for example, a muffler/diffuser, but the accessories required for general use are all included. In true RIDGID fashion, all the hoses and nozzles lock together so nothing pops apart while vacuuming. For our basement 12 gallons was just the right size, and 6-peak HP is a lot of suction! I’m also really pleased with storage on the vac, which was well thought out. Between the powerhead’s chord storage, the accessory caddy, and storage on the casters, everything can be neatly organized. And there’s still one spot left for another accessory nozzle. While the 20’ power cable, which is likely added for purposes of the blower, is still too short to blow our entire patio clean, it’s an added benefit to the shop vac... it’s like having a built in extension chord. The detachable blower/powerhead isn’t something I expected to use; however, it’s pretty convenient to have as a backup. Since the blower doesn’t have an adjustable speed trigger (it’s a switch so either on or off), it provides the exhaust of the 6-peak HP vac motor at full throttle (143 CFM). It’s good for small jobs like ridding the patio of maple helicopters and cleaning the driveway. The powerhead/blower weighs about 8 lbs and that includes the chord. With the typical RIDGID lifetime warranty and everything that comes with it, this vac/blower is a winner in my book!

My floor care people have used the Ridgid 12 gal vac for a couple years. They use it to suck up wax stripper and wax off of a VCT floor. Although it needs to cleaned after every use, because the product dries and will clog everything, it never ever fails to deliver! Once a week, this vacuum takes a beating and comes back swinging. Besides the attachments shown, there are more available and at a reasonable price. Leaf blower? Can not wait to try that out.

I really enjoy this 12 GAL. 6.0-PEAK HP NXT WET/DRY VAC WITH DETACHABLE BLOWER. It comes with everything you need to get started, including hose, 7 accessories and a bag. With the large container, it's great for getting leaves without having to empty all the time like smaller models. It comes with casters so moving it around your work area it a breeze. The other great thing about this is its Full lifetime warranty against material defects and workmanship.

I received this vacuum to build a dust collection cart for my shop. I have another Ridgid shop back in the garage that’s lasted you for years and I expect this one to do the same. The motor isn’t too loud and the suction is excellent. It’s really a brilliant idea as well to add the blower feature. I’ve done it in the past with hooking up the hose to the outlet on the back of the vacuum but it’s never quite the same. This leaf blower attachment puts out a ton of their air and will easily move the biggest pile of leaves. You never think somebody was going to be able to make an improvement to just a plain old vacuum but I think Ridgid come up with a great idea here. The clip on tools is great as well allows you to pull the vacuum around the shop without continuously unplugging the hose.

Side Latch sloppy
One of the side latches that secures the power unit to the tub does not latch very tight. The other side latches tightly and secures that side of the power unit to the tub. On the side that doesn't fit tight, you can slightly lift the power unit up off the tub. I contacted cust. service, they are sending me out two new latches. I am not sure if the problem is the latch or where it latches onto. We will see in about 5-7 business days. I am assuming that the latches come off easily to replace.

    It sucks ... it's a vacuum !!! Read review
    seemingly good. I purchased the unit solely for the use of its motor in a different application ... to be used as a vacuum source for a bee vacuum to remove swarms. The unit is not used as intended so I cannot give it 5 stars. Priced fairly. Delivered promptly.

    Shop vac with detachable motor.
    I owned the older version of this vacuum and I really liked it. I had it for almost 20 years and the bearings were just starting to get bad. I replaced it with this new version. So far it works just as well but I actually prefer the attachments without the locking clips. Also, the motor, when used as a blower, doesn’t sit upright very well and is prone to tip over. Aside from that it seems to function pretty much the same. I do highly recommend the detachable motor to use as a blower. It’s especially useful for cleaning the filter.
