I’ve been looking for a shopvac to use with my TS. I was told several times to get the RIDGID 12-Gal. 5 PHP Wet/Dry Vac by Ridgid. So while looking at HD’s site I found it at 79.95. So I checked online just by typing in the model, and found that that’s a pretty good price. So having shut down the tab that had the HD site pulled up, I just hit another link to HD and found the same shopvac for 59.95. I registered and bought it. I have to pick it up about 10 miles away, but it’s the best price on the thing I’ve seen.

Check this out.
The first ad. http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&locStoreNum=4647&productId=202554972&storeId=10051#.UH34zsVE6pU

The second ad.

One has a detachable blower, the other doesn’t. Otherwise it’s the same thing.

That second link is the Vac I posted about in your other thread for $59.88 that is marked on the box as a special buy. I bought one yesterday and it seems to do a good job. Used it to do some cleaning today, and it seemed to do as good a job as my old 6hp 16 gallon Craftsman.

jap, click the link and order it. I don’t know if they deliver to Canada though.

Lifesaver2000, I ordered it today and I’ll pick it up tomorrow. All I’m using it for is the TS. I have two other craftsman for other tools and the floor.

I have the version with the detachable vac – well worth the extra cost as it is a very effective leaf blower (and will raise all the sawdust in the shop into the air!). I use the blower quite a bit outside.

Another nice thing about this unit is it has a lifetime warranty, and no need to send in a receipt and UPC like you have to for the lifetime service agreement. Warranty doesn’t cover failure that is not due to defects in material and workmanship, but it is still better than the typical 1 year warranty.

I have this vac, it’s a beast. You’ll be happy with it I’m sure.
