Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Vehicles Bought this to use for my vehicle. Great size. Fits in a Rubbermaid bin with all my other vehicle stuff. Easy to use and very light. Not the most powerful suction, but enough to get non soiled carpets without issue. Drains battery pretty quick, I use a 2ah lithium battery for a light cleaning, first time I used it I used three of them to do the vehicle. Make sure you have more than one battery or you'll be charging halfway. The blower function could be good for a desk, but definitely not much else. I use it to blow out the vacuum after I'm done. Overall, good vacuum and the convenience alone makes it worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice portable vacuum for the shop or camper. I have been using this vac in my shop for about a year now, and I love it. This item has surprising power, and is very convenient. It works as well as my corded shop vac, but I find myself using it more often because it is battery powered. It is loud, as is expected with any vacuum of this category, but that is not a problem. I use it mostly for wood chips and saw dust, and it has held up great. The filter is easy to remove and clean, and the on-board attachments lock in securely. I have used it a bit for water clean up as well, and it does great for that as well. Having the utility of a shop vac in the portable and storable form factor is awesome. Useful for anyone with a small shop or camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a really good cordless shop vacuum I've had this for 2 months already, and it's used on a weekly basis. Due to its small size, it's nice and portable. The hose has a nice reach, and the attachments are convenient. It's great for the car. It has great suction, just as strong as corded portable 3 gallon shop vac i owned in the past. The only recommendation I would make is to get any battery larger than the 1.5Ah battery. I would only get about 10-15 minutes on the 1.5Ah battery. With the 4Ah I have, it's easily 30 minutes or more, so it's more convenient to use it with the larger battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most-used Ryobi - with a small add-on I've had this vac for many months now and increasingly love it! It packs enough suction for the small and moderate dry and some wet tasks that I have. It's easy to carry around in the house or outdoors, and far exceeds a little handheld vac, since this has a lovely, agile hose with the two nozzles. With a 4aH battery it readily lets me clean out my family van and car. My wife does get a tad upset because it has a rather high pitched whine. Now here's what I did to make up for one shortcoming that others have also mentioned - the lack of an extension pipe. Check out my attached picture. I 'copied' the crevice tool clamps with 2 pieces cut of ABS plumbing, heated, bent and screwed them onto the angled top of the vac, at the side where the hose runs. Trimmed one of my deceased ShopVac extension pipes to length, and now have that permanently with the vac. That gets me off my knees for numerous jobs and just gives a nicer reach in general. I'm SUPER pleased with that add-on. Okay Ryobi engineers, you can do it for your next model - you've done superbly so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent portable shop vac I love this vacuum. Never thought I'd love a vacuum, but this thing is so convenient and capable. It's really portable, and the attachment and design are well thought out. It's a tad loud (it's a shop vac, afterall), and it sucks batteries down, but it has excellent suction. With a 4Ah battery, it probably has around 10 minutes of full-power suction. It's obviously not intended to replace a shop vac, but as a quick and portable option, this thing is invaluable. I use it in spaces where a regular vac is cumbersome (cleaning stairs, car interiors, etc).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit sucks! This ryobi dry/wet vac was purchased about a month ago. What I needed was portable convenience. It was perfect. Suction power was adequate for what I needed. The expandable hose portion was great as it stretches out to 6 ft easily and then collapses back for on unit storage. Love the fact that it takes ryobi + 18 volt battery.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hose is Too Short I bought this a few months ago to use in the garage and in my car, but especially to use with the Ryobi Orbital Sander, which I was specifically told it would attach to. However, the hose does not reach far enough to use it and it slips off if you try to extend it too far. I literally had to life the vacuum up with one hand while sanding, but still the hose slipped off a few times. It works great in the car, but again the hose is quite short so it makes the job a bit difficult. I'm so disappointed!

Will this vac accept any type of universal filter? I ask because it seems to be impossible to get a replacement OEM filter for this vac and I need one. If it accepts a universal filter can you please provide a link to which one it will take? Thank you

Is there any necessary to use a vacuum bag inside the inner space of the machine? If so, can you recommend some brands and types of bags? Thank you.

Would this vacuum connect to the RYOBI 18V ONE+ Cordless 1/4 Sheet Sander exhaust port?

Asked by: Peter
Hi Peter, The 1/4 sheet sander has a square exhaust port so unfortunately without an adapter you will not be able to connect to this vac. We hope this helps, thank you. Ryobi Canada Team

Hi, i would like to know what is the run time for the 3Gal. wet, dry vacuum Model# P3240 with a 4 amp battery. I saw a few videos on line some said 12 minutes and 30 min. with a 9 amp battery!

Asked by: Richard
I never timed it but cleaned The entire inside of my truck with one battery and still had power left. Suction power is comparable to my 5 gal shop vac.

what would be the recommended size battery for good performance?

Asked by: jyve
Hi jyve, This 18V ONE+ 3 Gal Project Wet/Dry Vacuum will work with any RYOBI 18V battery and is part of our 175+ tool collection. Since this tool when being used will constantly be running we advise our customers to use a 4.0Ah battery for peek performance and run-time. If users have additional batteries charged up and ready to swap if needed, that is also a great best practice. We hope all this information helps. Thanks, RYOBI Canada.

Is there an adapter to connect the 1/4 Sheet Sander exhaust to this vacuum?

Asked by: Peter
Any vacuum hose should fit as long as the o/d of the hose nozzle is the same as the i/d of the Sanders exhaust port
