I have 2 of these [my wife stole one for the clinic]. The oldest is 6 or 7 years old. It has survived everything we have thrown at it. The reason I decided to post this review: I was planing some Jatoba today and my dust collection system clogged up again. Taking it apart and running a snake is a pain so I thought I’d try something. I hooked the Ridgid to the clogged 4” line about 16 feet in front of the clog and turned it on. To my surprise the fix was instant! I decided to review this tool in gratitude for its service. It is easy to empty, the filter is simple to clean with a few taps on the side of a tree, and filters last for years. It doesnt tip over when dragged around and it has the LONG cord Ridgid is known for. One caution: the Ridgid with the same hp and gal. but with the detachable blower top is a useless item. I bought one and returned it the same day as it had pitiful suction. Cant explain this but am reporting my experience. If either of my Ridgid vacs dies, I will purchase another just like them ASAP. Sorry I didn’t do a pic but you all know what they look like!
