                High quality product. You get your money’s worth with this product especially with the lifetime warranty. The vacuum has a lot of power and on top of that it’s quieter than my previous 10 gal shop vac. I also like how well it stores and the tires make it a whole lot easier.

                After a few months 2 small holes appeared in the bottom of the drum.. The claim of this being stainless steel is ridiculous. Its more like poorly chromed cheap steel loaded with impurities.. If you choose to buy this vacuum I suggest spray the inside of the drum with a rubberized sealer of some type. Ridgid does not and will not stand behind the warranty of this product..

                Hello Jeff269, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to learn your issue with the vac. It's unlikely for the drum to have holes after a few months if the proper drum maintenance instruction in the owner's manual is being followed. We'd like to learn more about this concern. You may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'd be glad to assist you. Or, send us the photos of the drum at info@ridgidvacs.com for review. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

                  This shop-vac is AWESOME!!! It was easy to assemble and it sucks like there's no tomorrow! I was a Drill Instructor for the Army so I like everything in order. As you can see, you can store the parts in this pouch area and YES, you can still take apart the top to empty the bag. You can also get vacuum bags for these units as shown below in the picture. I love the metal container. Reason being, my last one was Red and a hard Plastic. Well, I was cleaning out the filter and the plastic was old and brittler. So when I tapped the filter on the side of it, the filer put a nice hole in the red container. Plastic will dry out sooner or later! This is the best shop vac I have every purchased. You will not be sorry if you purchased one of these. This will be the last one I'll ever need to buy.

                  Excellent, will never go back to the smaller vaccumes. I use this with many different applications. Hooked up to various sanders, grinders and other tools. Great suction for sucking debrie at bottom of hot tub to. The pump accesery is also awesome for water break clean up. The lower noise out put is also great, especially with a muffler attachment. Im always on the look out for the best tools for the job without spending rediculous amounts. This tool wont disappoint you. If it does you're probably not using it right. And yes its pretty big but you already knew that with a 16gal vac....

                  My old shop vac went bad so I got this Ridgid shop vac. I put it together adding my Dirt Deputy to it, which put what you vac up into a bucket. The Ridgid seams to do a great job so far around the wood shop. Has a lot of power to get the job done. Only had this vac a shot time, we will have to see how long it will last.

                  Amazing Power and Performance
                  I've owned a few wet/dry vacs over the years, and I can honestly say this Ridgid vac is by far the best. I needed a vac with high CFM's and this unit has that. It picks up all kinds of messes from my shop floor with no problems and does it quietly! I like the fact that it uses dust bags to help keep the filter clean and also has a powerful blower port. My only complaint t about this vac is that it needs accessory storage on the front castors.

                    amazing shop vac
                    The best shop vac you can get. I also have the 6 gallon stainless shop vac as well. These vacs are tough and work hard. You will not have to buy another one again.

                      The vac itself is awesome and quiet for a shop vac. The cart is a joke. The axle rod that’s supposed to hold the rear wheels on is nothing more than a rod and some cheap metal end caps that look like little tiny top hats that your supposed to beat on with a hammer to hold the rear wheels on. I couldn’t get the on no matter how hard I beat on them. I think I got a bad set or something. The hoses are kind cheap but overall it’s a nice vac.
