          attachments don’t stay on
          I wish i could recommend this product considering how much i spent on the whole system, but i can’t. The attachments come off the hose constantly. They don’t snap or screw on, they just slide on and off. When I’m using the vacuum they’re constantly popping off and i have to keep putting them back.

            Acorn Removal from Lawn
            It does great for sucking up acorns. My lawn is a little longer than usual when I tried this as well. Maybe 3”.

              Hose cap is threaded, will screw back on
              Almost didn’t but because of people claiming those house broke first time they used it. Same happened to me but if you look at the black connection inside it is threaded…You just screw it back on! Wish I bought this kit forever ago…I take my dog to the beach all the time…this is amazing addition to my regular Rigid shop vac

                  Used once and the end of the hose came off.
                  Everything would be fine if the hose would last longer than one car cleaning session. Quality is disappointing.

                  Hello Marc,

                  Thank you for writing a review and we're sorry to hear about your issues. The swivel end adapter is meant to come off and you should be able to reconnect it to the hose by twisting counter clockwise. Should you have questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service at 1-888-455-8724 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we’ll be glad to assist you.

                    Very good, better than I thought it would be - but a little bit pricey.
                    I bought this just for the hose because the hose that comes with the bucket head shop vac was too stiff and too short to vacuum my office which is why I bought it. After using this set, I have to say that the attachments, which I thought I already had covered, were actually very good and came in very useful for cleaning bathroom overhead vent cover, floor fans, dusting tops of shelves, getting into corners, doing the blinds, behind computers, etc. The hose is a little ungainly but that's because okay as it is made very well and if I need to shorten it, I can get out the hacksaw, a box cutter, big scissors, etc. Only complaint I "had" is it seemed a bit pricey given that I only wanted the hose for my "cheap" bucket head shop vac. After using the attachments, I think it's an okay price. Total expense for everything though is a bit over the top though because when compared to my 14-gallon and 25-gallon shop vacs (in the shop) and all their hoses (50' total) and attachments, this ended up being just as expensive if not more considering it is on a 5-gallon hobodepot bucket after all. It fits and goes where the others (even the house vacuums) just can't. Great for quick spill cleanups in the kitchen too.

                    The hose broke off 3 min later first use
                    Well, it happened to me too, the hose broke off 3 minutes into the very first use. I tried to figure how to screw it back with no luck. Then went on to write 1 star review getting ready to return the kit back to the store, but then read the comments of CS that the hose is removable and just needs to be screwed counterclockwise. Would be nice to have a sticker on top of each box stating how to fix this problem if this happens since it’s a well known issue.

                    Hello ClePerson, Thanks for writing a review and we’re sorry to have learned your issues. We do understand the issue with the hose. The VT2534 follows the same design as our professional grade hose which the ends are removable and yes, in order to fix the issue you just need to twist if counterclockwise to screw it back onto the main body of the hose. You to twist it at least 10 times for a tight fit, in order for it not to be removed easily. If you have questions or concerns, 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 or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

                      Checks all the boxes.
                      16 gal, mainly because of the shape, they roll better and have a good capacity. But in addition to those requirements, I looked for a 20' cord, and locking hose connections - check. A couple of bonus items, The ON/OFF switch is well positioned - right where your thumb hits it when grabbing the handle. Finally, there is a nice clamp to help hold the hose in place when not in use. The vac has good suction and is not too loud. Includes a nice set of hoses and attachements.

                        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.

                        The hose broke off the connector.
                        The hose broke off the connector after using it twice. My original hose that came with my ridgid vacuum has lasted over 4 years. However, this hose did not meet my expectations.
