Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bon kit a tout faire de dimension raisonnable. Kit qui vaut la peine pour quelqu'un qui veut un kit a multiusage. J'aimerais toutefois qu'il y ait un sac inclu pour mettre le kit de nettoyage d'auto car il n'y a pas assez de support pour tous les attachement supplémentaires inclu dans le kit. Les 2 hoses se raccordent ensemble pour faire un long boyau, ce qui est parfait pour le nettoyage de l'auto. Le tuyau de l'aspirateur de branche directement sur mon banc de scie, fini la poussière excessive ! Tres satisfait de mon achat. Je suggere d'acheter des sacs pour optimiser l'efficacité de l'aspirateur, sinon le filtre se bouche quand meme assez rapidement. Pas besoin d'être ceux de la marque ridgid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum I replaced my older vacuum with this NXT 53L. This is WAY quieter I really hated my older unit it was always too loud! The bearings/ motor run smoother. This vacuum is very powerful, lots of suction. I’ve only used it a few times for sawdust and dried heavy garden dirt tracked into the garage. Works great on Black Labrador hair in my garage too. I’ve not used it for water and hopefully never will. This vacuum is quite large and requires it’s own floor space, this is not for tucking away or storing on a shelf. Home Depot carry many sizes to choose from. I expect this to be my last vacuum of this type with the amount of in home/garage use this will receive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bang for the Buck with some Caveats Pros: high CFM. Relatively cheap price for the power and accessories included. Good warranty if you don't forget to register. Easy to assemble. Not super loud. Cons: Typical cheap caster wheels and hose. Why?! Would it cost that much to put bigger, better quality wheels on these vacs?! The bag design and filter design can be improved. It says 14 on the packaging but there's no way this hold 14 gallons because the filter takes up space and the bag needs to wrap around it. There's a better way to design this. BAGS: Yes, use them! You won't lose suction and your vacuum will last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations I bought this to replace a shop vac brand wet dry vac I purchased. I owned the shop vac vacuum for about 10 min before I returned it and bought this one and let me just say; this Ridgid vac is amazing. So much more suction than the other vacuums I've used with the same peak horse power rating. Pros: great suction Great blower, optimal for winterizing inground pool lines The lid snaps tight with no rattles Onboard tool/ hose storage is well thought out 2.5 inch hose will pick up almost anything Cons: If you want to use this for cleaning out your car the 2.5 inch hose does make it hard to reach tight crevices, however there may be some car detailing accessories you can buy to mitigate this issue. As for longevity I can not say as I just purchased this unit. With proper care and maintenance I don't see why this wouldn't last just as long as any other vacuums in its price range.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful but Not Perfect Powerful, relatively quiet and a good assortment of attachments. It’s both too tall or too wide with the casters (to lay down) to fit under my truck tonneau cover to bring to job sites so I have to take the motor/lid off to transport (RAM 3500 with tonneau that sits on top of bed rails). Also the car cleaning hose only fits those attachments and can’t use regular ones whereas the regular hose can use the car cleaning attachments with the included adapter. There’s no “reverse adapter” for the car cleaning hose. I’d buy this vacuum and kit again though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a big fat orange sucking machine It is powerful, big and sucks everything. I have had this vacuum for abut 3 months and it has sucked many thing with ease like gravel, sand, dust, water etc. If you treat it well and use the proper filters for different application like fine dust (drywall and concrete) then it should last you for a long time (life time warranty) I have had no issues for the short time I have spend with the shop vac. the only thing that surprised me was the size. It is bigger then I thought (fat) but i am still happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m Pleased with this purchase I’ve had a couple of different shop vacs over the years. This one has a good amount of suction. I use it with a small cyclone as a dust collector on some of my smaller woodwork tools like my router. And for general clean up in my garage. It has a good stance and follows around nice with out dumping over like other shop vacs I’ve had in the past. The filter replacement system is nice as well. It came with the car grooming kit which has the smaller hose that is more flexible and fits nice on my smaller tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noisy but super strong I love everything about it except the cost of a replacement filter ($50!) The filter I got with it, I've washed in the shower twice now (the vacuum works as a shop vac AND two wood saws as their dust collector.) I simply wash the dust filled filter under a soft running shower but do NOT run the filter wet or it will collapse in the vacuum's low pressure. Wait til it dries. Emptying it is super easy. The on/off switch is huge and can be toggled very easily. Vacuum pressure is probably the best on the market.

Can I attach it to RYOBI 120V 4-Inch by 36-Inch Belt / Disc Sander? I could nit find the dust port's diameter for the sander

Asked by: Sammy
Hello Sammy, Thank you for asking. Sorry, we cannot confirm if you can attach the RYOBI 120V 4-Inch by 36-Inch Belt / Disc Sander without the size of the dust port. You may need to use an adapter between the hose and the sander. Please call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com if you need further assistance.
