[Home Depot] Ridgid 22L Shop Vac (Warm)

If you're in the market for a small shop vac to do cars / fit in a car easily for mobile cleaning this is a decent deal. I've used many ridgid brand and shop vac brand, and the ridgid always outperforms (and outlasts).

Ridgid vacuums come with a 'lifetime warranty'.

Ridgid cheerfully replaced my 16 year old vacuum (that I felt did not really owe me anything) with a minimum of hassle; I had to send them a few photos of it as well as serial number. Eight days after I contacted them by email, a new vacuum was delivered. I think that is outstanding warranty support.

Yes, this is a good reason to go with Ridgid.

If my intended use would be to attach it to hand power tools for dust collection (e.g. circular saw, random orbital sander, etc.), any opinion on if there are reasons to go for the 6 peak HP one over the 3.5 peak HP one? (Would the smaller one be sufficient for this type of use?)

I think the peak HP is BS, look at the actual motor amperage

The impeller or fan separated from the motor shaft. The motor came on but no airflow was created. Ridgid asked for photos: 1) the back tag with the model and serial number on it, 2) the cord with power plug in tact, 3) turn power unit upside down and a pic of the frame the holds the filter. Three days after emailing the pic a new unit was delivered.

Which model would be better for this dust collector project? 22L or 53L that someone posted as well in this thread.

Ridgid and VacMaster (Duravac)

I used "Shop Vac" ones and they are absolute trash despite whatever specs they put on the label. They are not good

Ridgid always has modest labels but the power will be like 2x the power of the equivalent from other brands

Is the 53L an overkill for car cleaning? The hose should be long enough to go inside. I know the 22L seems like a good choice but the reviews indicate it is not that strong
