18-Volt 9 Gal. Cordless Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum (Tool Only) with Car Nozzle, Utility Nozzle, Wet Nozzle and Extension Wands is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.

What makes it so amazing is that you do not need a cord anymore in order to clean out your vehicle or clean up a site where the use of a cord is limited. The not so great is that it only uses 18v batteries and has no available option to use a cord. I used it and had two 4.0 batteries at half charge and got about 15 min. runtime which was sufficient for a quick vacuum of the truck but not quite enough for a full in depth cleaning. I can only imagine that at full charge, this vacuum (with two batteries) will provide enough to fully vacuum one vehicle. The suction was great however, I would have to say that I feel that 9 gallons is a bit large for the length of runtime I experienced but those are not the largest batteries...a smaller version would be great. The options for included nozzles is perfect and storage is just like every other shop vacuum. I would not hesitate to buy one for the simple tasks in which you may not want to drag out a cord.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cordless battery powered shop vac is a great idea. This Ridgid vac is good but not excellent yet.... Cordless battery powered shop vac is a great idea. This Ridgid vac is good but not excellent yet. It has sufficient power, suction and capacity to do the work. It is lightweight and very portable. My only issue or reservation is the length of time it can be operated continuously. I use two 18v 4.0Ah Ridgid "Hyper" lithium ion batteries. I can get about 15 minutes of continuous operation before the batteries run low for recharge. That is enough time for small to moderate clean up jobs but you need to have the charger handy for big jobs. The Vac does not come with batteries and charger; so unless you already have Ridgid battery powered tools (which I do have), the additional cost of charger and batteries will be a significant expense. Ridgid makes good quality tools and this Vac will fit the bill for someone that is committed to cordless tools.

The hardest part was the casters; you have to tap them in a few times with a rubber mallet. You can't push them in. Two batteries provide sequential power. I have the Octane batteries with a double charger and a word about that. If you want cordless tools, you must invest in batteries (yes, more than one) and a dual charger. Expensive, but part of the cordless plan. I vacuumed my cars. I got a solid 20 minutes from one battery, then switched to the other to do the garage. Nice! The instructions are good enough but there is no part list. For example, instructions mention dust filter bags as in how to install them, but nowhere is a part number (I found it after a search: Rigid VF3503 2-pack); the dust bags are a must for concrete dust, cold wood stove ash, etc. so the dust is not blown back out into the air. This type of vacuum invites itself to collect dust, dirt, and debris. It is not a household vac so it performs differently in that it needs filters cleaned, dust bags changed and this means planning ahead to have a few filters and dust bags up on the shelf. The regular paper filter numbers are outside on a sticker on the vacuum's head. Cordless=convenience. 9 gallon capacity is all you need (remember, you have to lift it when it is full). It really performed well, it is light, and with a small storage footprint. What I noticed was the tools (crevice, etc. along with extension wands) were loose-packed in the box and were rattling around when the delivery person handed me the box. The head has an outlet meaning you can connect the 1 7/8 hose to that end and blow out your leaves and dirt in your garage. I used dish soap to make the hose end easier to fit into either end- intake or exhaust-because of a really snug fit. The hose is stored in side clips-kind of OK storage, but no places for tools to snap in or onto to for storage. You have to carry those in one hand and the vacuum in the other. It is so nice having the convenience of a cordless vac. My charger is up on the wall, out of the way, and the vacuum is stored in a corner for ready use. I am pleased with it; I recommend it.

I got this to add to my ridgid power tool collection I do have a smaller corded vac we use to clean out the chimney but it can never be used for anything else. I used this to vacuum out our cars and it did a great job at the local car wash I would have spent over 20 bucks to get them vacuumed this saved me time and money. This machine has a place to store all the the extra pieces . As for putting it together the wheels are fitted into a plastic molded feet that are inserted onto the machine. The directions are to insert the wheel into plastic foot while on the floor. I could not do it I used my vice which took seconds that said the rest was a piece of cake.

It has the same power as the corded models but without a cord and offers some other design improvements.Overall I was really satisfied with the performance and design of this shop vac. Below I am including the pros for the shop vac, things to consider and things that weren't cons to the vac but were not as important as the pros. Pros Carrying handle is better placed (to balance the load) than older models Hose more flexibility at each end than most other hoses Orientation of motor and canister align easily and tightly Switch is larger and improved Battery life is pretty good and batteries are not used in parallel to power unit. Meaning you can use one battery to power the unit if you want, the second battery just gives additional run time. Neutral Blower at the back is great for light work Standard attachments are included 12 seconds to suck 5 gal bucket of water Battery terminal connection is tight, this might get a little looser over time or it might be my batteries so other may not experience this same issue. Same amount of noise Other Considerations Capacity is 5 gal not 9 gal (5 gallons comes to the bottom of the hose port) Because there is no cord, power to the unit cannot be controlled by a switch (router table switches are designed control power to the router and shop vac), be nice if there was a remote to start in stop the unit. There is no drain or plug on the canister for water/liquids to be emptied The motor cannot attach to a 20 or 50 gallon Rubbermaid brute trash can Bottom line is if you are already in this platform and looking to move to cordless then get this shop vac.

Really like this vacuum but be aware it is the vac only so if you don’t have the Ridgid battery and charger already it will cost much more. I unfortunately didn’t realize this so I had to invest. But I am glad I did because I’m truly impressed with this vacuum. It’s so lightweight, easy to drag around and has great suction. Picked up everything I wanted in my garage so I brought it through the house and with that crevice tool it did wonders. I will say that the casters install was atrocious, just like other reviewers said. They should just come pre-assembled. I jammed my finger on the first one and used an oven mitt to protect my fingers on the rest! It has this great feature of a blower on the backside which will come in handy. It also has several attachments. The only downside would have to be the actual battery runtime. I was only able to buy one 4.0 battery (recommendation is. 4.0 plus a 2.0 for extra runtime) so I only got 13 minutes. Not great but do-able if your area is prepped and ready. Perhaps I’ll keep a lookout for another battery on sale. Otherwise, it’s a must have tool not only for your garage/workshop but for your home too. It’s a somewhat big investment but worthwhile. Would have given it 5 stars if the battery and charger were included.

CORDLESS; ACCESSORY STORAGE; SHORT RUNTIME — The best feature of the RIGID 18-Volt 9 Gal. Cordless Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum (Tool Only) is that it is cordless which makes it easily portable for wherever you need to use it. It is especially handy for vacuuming a vehicle where an outlet may not be readily available, and you do not need to deal with cords or extension cords. A crevice tool would help for vacuuming a vehicle. I only have one 2.0 Ah high capacity RIGID battery; using it for seven minutes exhausted the battery power. I assume the runtime will be greater with two batteries. The product is not easy to assemble by following the instructions. Several of us could not press the casters into of holders. We needed to use a rubber mallet to install them. The accessories do not fit into the extensions easily. It is great how the vacuum holds the hose and accessories although the hose does not fit on as nicely as it shows in the manual. See the photo. It has a huge drum which is easy to open and empty. Since the runtime is short, such a large drum may not be necessary. The wheels and tug-a-long hose make it easy to move over a hard surface. It picks up debris OK but not as well as my smaller corded vacuum. It does not work for vacuuming rugs. It can also be a wet vac but we have not tested that function. Having to recharge the battery after seven minutes of use negates much of the advantage of it being cordless. I would not recommend this shop vacuum unless you have two batteries.

A nice shop vac, it includes several tools, a car nozzle, wet nozzle, utility nozzle, as well as extension wands.it does not include a battery or charger, but can be purchased at the local Home Depot. once I purchased the needed items, charged the battery, it was ready for use. The first thing I tackled was the car, after a long messy winter.it has very good suction, is easy to move to the needed area, its quiet, its my go to vac.No cord to drag around.
