Can this vac be used to clean indoor carpet and hardwood floors?
Asked by: Tim
A shop vac would not be your best choice for either of these applications although it will pick up some of the dirt. You really need something with a beater bar for carpet and a soft bristle brush for wood flooring.

Can this vac be used to suck dry leaves?
Asked by: tim
You may get by if you occasionally encounter a small leaf or two while cleaning, but if you are doing yard work, you will need something with a much larger hose diameter and greater air flow.

16 Gal. 6.5 HP NXT Wet Dry Vac with Detachable Blower is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.

I own 13 Ridgid shop vacs ,various sizes and years that i use in my bushiness and at home.I have tried other brands that i wasted my money on. With proper maintenance so far i have never had to throw one out,with some being over 20 years old (maybe closer to 30 years) .I just wish they would offer the 14 " wide floor attachment having a small roller on ea. end with a scrubber strip (very good for floor cleaning and water pick up on vinyl ,ceramic and cement floors).On all of them. I added a plastic grab handle re purposed from exterior door purchases (These were attached to the end of new door side to aid in pulling out of there bin) to the center top of the shop vac for easier picking up (even installed on the ones with the removable blower), carrying up stairs etc. These are professional tools.Too bad cars don't last this long !!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is my second 16 gallon wet/dry vacuum from RIDGID.... This is my second 16 gallon wet/dry vacuum from RIDGID. The first lasted many, many years. Hope this one will last as long. Very much liked the removable blower. Plenty of power. The lift rating on this unit was not very high but it is more than adequate for my initial use (cleaning my fish pond). Longer cord than the last unit, positive. All the attachments from my old unit still fit and although the new unit had almost the same attachments, it is nice to have spares, just in case. Only negative I saw so far is the location of the intake and baffle..... right where you pour out the contents. I know, there is a drain for that purpose. But cleaning out a fish pond full of leaves, the drain clogs immediately, need to pour out the contents. Of the four sides of the unit, this was the worst choice.

Bought this to replace a shop vac that I had for years hope to get as many years if not more from this one. Like the idea of the detachable blower havent tried it yet because of the weather. I am going to put it to the test in a few weeks I have a tall crock to clean out but I need to buy the reducer since the access is smaller. That will tell me alot about the suction power.

I live near an airport so I can't use it outdoors for fear of sucking small aircraft off of the glideslope. It assembles easily, has adequate air flow and rolls easily over cords and small debris. The manual is correct about the need to purchase and use the fine dust filter for drywall dust as it passes through the standard filter.

Not sure if I like the new design. I’ll end up liking it for the reason of not losing the hold down nut. I also would like the hose to be a little less stiff. Other than that it’s a great vac.

Size of barrel is perfect size. (My last one was too big and difficult to move.). Now, if it just came with someone to use it for me...
