I don’t have a fancy vac so I decided to get some real power and reliability to use in any situation in the house, outside, in the car and for psychological validation. I’m allergic to dust and if I sneeze in public ppl freak out so I gotta clean. Got HEPA filter/osha dust bag set too, which cost a lot but now I’m osha compliant! The blower in the back also stirs up more dust so I purchased the muffler to diffuse some of the air coming out. The caster wheels roll easily, but the vac is too big for tight spaces, so I got the detailing attachment/hose set and extended the length of my hose to about 15 ft. I may have spent as much on accessories as I did on the vac but now I can confidently use it to clean and grunt like that tool guy from the 90s sitcom after all the modding. I don’t know which add-on causes this, but it’s got a loud whistle like a jet engine turbo so I gotta put on headphones and jam to some Skynyrd with my beer hat. Best of all - 12 gallon model is cheaper than the 4 gallon model, which we also own, I like the size of that one but this one is a monster. In my opinion, unless you need the smaller size, get this one. I’m so much more satisfied with it.

I purchased this vacuum mainly for use in my small shop. It is inline with the "Duststopper" that is available at HD. They both are connected to my DeWalt table saw. With the convenience of the long 2 1/2 diameter hose I can easily disconnect it from the saw and attach to my router table or planer. This really keeps the dust and debris down.

We love Ridgid equipment, and this vacuum is no exception. It has great suction power, was easy to put together (just attaching the casters, hoses, etc), and has worked great so far. We have only had it a few weeks, but it is easy to use and clean. I like all the attachments that it comes with, and that they can all be stored on it. We previously had a craftsman vacuum and this has blown it out of the water in terms of section power, attachments, and ease of carrying/wheeling. I bought this for my husband for his birthday, but my 2.5 yo thinks it was for him and asks me everyday if we can vacuum the cars or "use the shopvac".

This thing is amazing.
I got this shop vac to use for numerous projects. The day I got it I had it set up and ready to go within a few minutes. I first used it to vacuum out my car and it was the cleanest the cars interior and floor has ever been. I went to vacuum the floor mat and this thing picked up the floor mat off the ground it sucks to hard. I also just recently used it to clean out a clogged drain pipe that goes to the sewer with the extra long hose attachment I purchased separately.

Upgraded my shop vac from a small generic 2HP 5gal one to this. I also purchased the Dustopper dust separator set up to go along with this shop vac. So far this shop vac works great, the locking attachments are a good feature to keep from losing an attachment while you're working.

The shopvac works great, however, the attachments are not holding up. After only three uses the hose attachment cracked at both ends. Very disappointed!
