Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality. Got this as I needed a larger diameter... Great quality. Got this as I needed a larger diameter hose than was available for my 10 gallon Shop-Vac. I've owned a few Ridgid vacuums and they never disappoint. Powerful suction, build quality is about as sturdy as you can get without jumping up to a professional machine. The attachments are all useful. The little clip system for attaching the various heads isn't my favorite (I can picture, very clearly, that little clip breaking off), but I haven't had any problem with it so far. It's great seeing machines made from metal. It'd be nice if even less of this was plastic, but it's better than nothing. By the way—don’t buy Shop-Vac brand vacuums. The company went out of business and you can’t find any accessories or replacement parts for them. They might be cheap now but you’ll end up paying more later.

Has anyone used this in a school environment? I teach a high school theater shop class and am looking for something that can withstand daily use by students to pickup sawdust and styrofoam “dust” (the mess left behind from cutting and sculpting styrofoam) as well as general cleanup. My last one lasted 27 years, but is sadly no longer being made.
Asked by: DG
I have not used it in a school environment, but this wet/dry shop vacuum is the best shop vac I have ever owned. I would recommend this item to anyone who has to vacuum anything wet or dry.
