    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality shop vac. More powerful than our old Ridgid, which lasted quite a long time. The push/pull handle bar is a welcome addition. I preferred the thinner hose from our earlier model, but I guess the wider hose will come in handy at some point.

Includes the better blue filter and muffler which makes the package a very good price. I have 2 very old 16 gallon rigid vacs that still work well. I'm not replacing -- I just find myself needing a shop vac but it's not where I need it to be. The old ones were made prior to rigid having a bag so I actually rigged one to use a bag. Of course, the new units are capable of having a bag from the factory. I bought 2 of these new HD1800 units. Personally, I do not really see any horse power increase compared to my old units, but that's ok, because the "normal" horsepower is strong enough. I might have actually downsized this time but I wanted to keep the same 2.5 inch hose and with the package deal, I'm happy with my decision. It's not a comparison, but I have an M18 "red" portable vac that has a very small hose and I must be cautious picking up anything too large since the hose will easily clog, so having a 2.5 inch vac was a def requirement for me. When I checked out at HD, the old price was still in the system, but the cashier double checked the new lower $149 price, and simply deducted $10 off each vac. Surprisingly, HD did not have any of these on the shelf nor any on display, but I knew they had 12 in stock according to the online stock count. Someone located the pallet and brought me 2 units. While waiting, I was leaning towards buying the stainless steel unit, but it did not include the muffler and was priced $20 higher, so I had no problem waiting a few minutes for the HD1800.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful design. Made to tear bags. Only buy this if you want to get angry. Look at the picture, it TAPERS at the top. So if you use a bag and it gets full, you can't get it out without tearing it. The opening is considerably smaller than where the bag sits down inside the bottom section. To add to the fun, the connection point for the hose projects inward a couple inches, and isn't easily removable. So it serves to make the opening EVEN SMALLER, and tears the bag as you try to get it out. EVERY SINGLY TIME. Do yourself a favour, and buy a vac where the hose connection is on the lid, and the opening where you remove the bag is the widest point. The way someone with a shred of common sense would have designed this vacuum. Created this account solely to rant about this hateful piece of junk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much stronger than the Craftsman vacuum I retired Great suction power and less noise than my previous vacuum. Only problem is the wheels keep falling off. Need a better way to attach the wheels to the axle. Going to try drilling thru the axle and using a cotter pin to keep them on.

    Does this model require extra purchase for water pickup?

    Asked by: Aaron
    Hello Aaron, It depends on the volume of water and whether it's clean water you will be picking up. As stated in the owner's manual, if you're picking up small amounts of liquid, the supplied cartridge filter may be used. For large amounts of liquid, the cartridge filter must be removed. Alternatively, especially if you're picking up dirty liquid, we highly recommend buying the VF7000 wet foam filter to further protect the motor of the vac. If you have additional questions, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Standard Time and we'd be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

    Can I attach this to my Ridgid 10" table saw?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    The TS3660 series and back has the attachment on the dust hood so that the vac will go right on. On the new granite top there a 4 inch connection so an adapter would be needed. I hope this helps.
