Amazing how this wet/dry vac works. I purchased to clean a Wendy’s post tile renovation and it worked great. I couldn’t have done it without this wet/dry vac. Thanks so much for this awesome product!

Why are the wheels so small?
I like that the hose is strong enough to pull the vacuum however the wheels are so small that they can't even roll over their own cord. Also the lid has two clasps but they only work in one position so you have to put it on the same way every time. It would be nice if they designed it so it doesn't matter which way you put the top on.

      DOESN'T FIT - Plain and Simple
      Stop posting call customer service. You market this as fitting ALL Rigid Shop vacs and it simply DOES NOT! Why do I have to make an other trip due to your incompetence? Time is money and you have wasted my time so you owe me money. Measurements are wrong, statement that it fits all Rigid Vacs are wrong. Flat out lies. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT.

          I am using this to attach to my rigid vac...
          I am using this to attach to my rigid vac in the garage but I don’t want to move the dust collection cart when we use it to clean our cars. I bought this item to provide that reach we were looking for. If you’re hesitating, don’t, just get it. The only thing I’ll say is the box arrived completely destroyed by some third party carrier after they held it at their warehouse for over a week and finally delivered on a holiday. I’ll ship to store from now on even though that can also be a pain.

          While you're reviewing the description on the website you should review the description on the box because it says the same thing- fits all Ridgid vacs. BTW the description on the website says fits most rigid vacs but it also says fits all Ridgid vacs.

            If you have an old Rigid Shop Vac, here is the fix to make this hose work with it!
            I was dismayed to discover this hose does nopt fit older Rigid Shyop Vac. It is not 2 1/2" but 2". I am desperate. I have a large coastal property on a lake and now is the time to sell. I delayed major interior remodeling because it involves a lot of sheetrock cutting, and wood and sheetrock sanding. I ordered this hose and a boatload of the shop-vac liner bags. Was already to work today and discovered this hose does not fit older Rigid Shop Vacs. I am desperat6e and was going to just duck tape this to my old cracked hose so I could work, but while sizing everything up I realized the part of the old hose and new hose where the locking "pull-along" attachment fits are identical in size. OK. This is not easy, and took me close to an hour, but I was able to revove the old connector (easy because I just slashed off the hose) and attachj it to the new hose. Looks and works like brand new, and all my other attachments fit fine. The attached photo shows the end result, and the tools needed. The HARD, TEDIOUS part comes after you saw off the exposed end of the attachment on the new hose. Then you have to VERY CAREFULLY cut out the interior of the attachment part that is inside the new hose. It is critical you not cut the new hose. If you do at this critical juncture it will quickly fail on you. I slowly cut by hand, sliding my carpenter's knife at an angloe between the inside of the hose and the part you are removing. I wore l;eather gloves, as this is a tricky cut to do. I made multiple cuts an inch apart and used the bent needle nose pliers to work it out when I got to the bottom. If you own an old shop vac you are probably an old carpenter like me, and should be able to handle this. Now it is absolutely as good as new. Well, I guess technically it is mostly new! :)

            Hello Reid, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. It's true that this hose doesn't have the red locking adapter anymore that may allow to connect this hose to your vac. However, if you still need this adapter, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

              I love the extra length of hose to get to places I can't take the vacuum, like around my attic opening, or vacuuming a different room. It came with 3 different attachments. I was hoping to connect 2 of the 20 foot hoses together, but that didn't work. But the 20 foot works good by itself.
