Q:We need to vacuum sawdust out of an attic. As a result we will need to use a hose 40 to 50 feet long. Will it be feasible to use this vacuum because it has a very high CFM? I presume the brand of hose may affect he resistance to air flow.

A:  Hello WCarp, Thank you for reaching out to us about our product. We're excited to help you find the perfect solution for cleaning up sawdust. Our vacuum is indeed suitable for picking up sawdust, making it an ideal choice for your needs. However, we want to ensure that you have the best experience possible.

          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”.

              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.

                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.

                    Malfunction and fire inside electric motor
                    Product  almost  burned  down my atelier and house. The product stopped working after a small fire.  I turned it off, waited for it to cool down and disassemble the product.  I thought it was wood dust that might have come into contact with some poorly insulated connection, but that is not what happened. I am product designer and mechanic  engineer. That vaccum  should be removed from the shelves.  As shown in the photos, the axis of rotation comes into contact with the plastic support of the coil, probably assembly error,  or poor design, and create friction ,in the worst case, as in my case, it burns the paper that insulates the coil from the metal casing.

                      Dangerous product
                      I always buy my most tools from RIDGID and offer my friends to get this brand specially their Vacuum due to light weight and strong suction the old one I did purchase 3 years ago it worked fine and stop working after 3 years so I went to Home depot to get the new one after two weeks 5 times using yesterday stop working and sound different and after turn it on several time ,when I start vacuuming I got electric shock that was so scary .I cant believe it why new vacuum in this short time giving problem so be careful about this product now that shows how their product quality went down from last 3 years shame

                        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.
