The Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac comes packed with the one RIDGID Wet/Dry vac, the 7ft. tug a long dual flex locking hose, utility nozzle, 2 extension wands, wet nozzle, car nozzle and a filter.


I used my new RIDGID wet/dry vac to vacuum out my new SUV and I was so happy with the performance. I especially love the 12 gallon because its a happy medium between the larger vacs and the smaller vacs. Most of my cleanups are moderate at best so I would highly recommend this size.

It easily cleaned the messes in my car, and let me tell you my truck can get crazy at times. With the 15 ft. power cord it was easy for my to move my vac around my SUV from my garage outlet which was very helpful during cleanup. 

I really love that the vac also doubles as a blower. It adds versatility and allows you to perform activities like blowing leaves and grass clippings.


Hose Storage

This is the first time I have seen hose storage like this on a RIDGID Wet/Dry Vac and I am impressed.

I think most can attest that trying to neatly put away a wet/dry vac hose is always frustrating, but the hose storage on this vac keeps the hose nice and neat and secure when transporting and stowing.

Power Cord Storage

This Ridgid vac also features a storage on top for the 15ft cord. It also allows you to easily pick up the vacuum for transport.

Accessory Ports

The RIDGID wet/dry vac features slots in the casters that allows you to store the accessory pieces in them. This allows you to keep all of the attachments with the wet/dry vac rather than having to store them elsewhere.


I think this RIDGID Vac design has drastically come a long way from the original design and I can't think of anything that would make this vac better. SO this means this vac gets and A+ from me.

The Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac retails for $84.97 at the Home Depot.
