Dont buy this style!
Needed a vaccum because mine broke, bout this one. Its terrible, has the motor as the blower. I should have bought the one without the blower. This design is crap. My Dewalt was 100x better. Cant wait til this breaks so i can but a vaccum that works. Dont but this style.

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.

      Solid shop vac for the price !
      Great Wet/dry vac all around!! The cord coming in at 20 feet was a huge plus as it stores away with a breeze. Storage mount for all the attachments is adequate and the hose tucks away cleanly. I blower is strong for what it is and happy with the suction power of the 6.5 motor. The Model # HD1600 comes with multiple attachments but I also purchased the Premium Car Cleaning Accessory Kit because I recently got a new truck and it is helping me keep it clean! The attachments hooked right up the existing hoses that added some extra length to the hose with no loss of suction. It is a great add-on for this unit if you are into detailing your vehicle as it the vacuum moves freely with 360° movement. I am very happy with this shop vac and would recommend it to friends.

        Powerful Shop Vacuum
        Just picked it up on 4/6/20 and so far it's a great shop vac. Lots of power and the detachable leaf blower is impressive. The power cord is nice and long. Assembly was easy. I coupled this vac with a Dustopper Dust collector, also from Home Depot. These 2 products work surprisingly well together. The Dustopper's 5 gallon bucket was chucked full but the Rigid Shop Vac canister only contained a very minimal amount of dust. Hopefully, this will relieve the stress on the Shop Vac motor when I use it as a dust collector on my table saw, router table, jointer and sanders. The only con so far is the attachment holder doesn't stay in place very well.

            Great vac. Quieter than previous one. Amazing power. Use as central vac. Replace older Rigid due to slight over heating odor after more than four years use as central vac. New vac has more power and less noise. This is our sixth Rigid shop vac. All perform well. Inlet allowing disposable bags use makes emptying quick easy and hardly any mess. Very satisfied.

            I have owned few different wet and dry vacs in the past and this is already my favorite. The general size if really nice. It is short and fat which I find much better for storing the vac and it never feels like it is topping over if you get hung up on the wires. I think the drain plug is a great feature instead of trying to pour out 16 gallons of liquid. All of the attachments, and there are plenty, store nicely on the vac. I love the feature for the detachable blower. I don't recommend it as a dedicated leaf blower though, it just isn't strong enough. It is great to blow the saw dust out of your workspace though. I was able to move around some leaves but only for short distances. It would take you longer than to just rake the leaves at that point but it was great for clearing of the driveway. This is a great vac!
