Anyone know if this is a good one or not?

Ridgid is kind of known for their shot vacs....I would say it is pretty good. I bought a 12 gallon Craftsman on Black Friday for $44 and that was a great deal. I would say this is a great deal.

I have been using one in my wood shop for years and have never had a problem. It has picked up a lot of saw dust!

I picked one up Tuesday from the local HD (had 66 in stock) in their Spectacular Savings area up front for a remodel project. For $10 less than their basic 6-gal model and ~2x the hp it's definitely a deal. Used it last night sucking up drywall dust, wood chips, and spilled water and was definitely impressed with the sucking power. The exhaust/blower was potent too, ruffling up the dog cowering in the corner of the other room.

Great purchase, I'd recommend it so far

I have a friend who gives shop vacs for wedding and baby shower presents. Most people look at him a little odd when they first open the gift. Their thanks comes later on after the dishwasher floods the kitchen or they try to clean all the goldfish and cheerios out of the minivan.

I love mine. I have to add one thing that many people never think of; it works perfectly for removing wasp nests from under eaves. Just vacuum them all up, and make sure not to open it to empty it for a couple days until they are all dead; that's a mistake I made once.

@bigroblee: Unless it comes with a 25ft hose I'm going to stick to the spray.

Man, these suck! Seriously.
This is our second one for work, replacing a pair of old, burned out Craftsman vacs. These come with a washable paper filter-which is weird, but it works, and filters are cheap and always available.
