Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vac.... My old Shop-vac gave up on me after 15 years of reliable service. It was a smaller 5 gallon one so rather than try and see what was the matter with it I decided to buy a new, bigger one. It came down between a 8 gallon Shop-Vac (Model #586-70) and this 9 gallon Rigid. The shop-vac was about $15 more and one less gallon, so I figured I would go with the Ridgid. Seeing that Ridgid has a good name in tools I figured I wouldn't go wrong. Right out of the box it worked as it should... lots and lots of suction power. I can't see how another reviewer said it wouldn't pick up a finishing nail because it could suck up a whole box of them!! The bigger diameter 1 7/8" hose was a little awkward at first as I was used to the much smaller diameter 1 1/4" one on my old shop-vac but it was flexible and easy to use when vacuuming my truck out once I got used to it so no complaints there, if I ever need to suck up water I think I will be happy it has a bigger hose! I recommend this vac...for the price you can't go wrong for a top brand like Ridgid....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridgid is too Rigid The hose I mean. I had a shop vac before I bought this and the hose was much more maneuverable. Ridgid's hose is too stiff, I felt like I was wresting not vacuuming. Not to mention it wouldn't even suck up a small nail...not with the utility nozzle attachment that came with it, and barely when I placed the hose directly over the nail without the nozzle on. I had heard good things about these vacs... too bad. I'll be taking this one back today. Totally unacceptable.
