I bought a RIDGID Vacuum Cleaner this past year as an investment. It’s a wet-dry shop-capable type that is quite large (too large, actually), but is up to the task of vacuuming a plastic bag stuck high up in a neighboring tree as well as emptying the contents of a beehive… both things the vacuum has done admirably.
This past spring, I was vacuuming my car, and pulled the vacuum across my driveway toward me and the wheel/leg snapped right off.
For a $200+ vacuum, I was pretty angry about that.
So, I wrote to the RIDGID folks, and without any question, they sent out a replacement set of wheels, next day air.
Great service, and now, a great vacuum in perfect working order.
Nicely done, RIDGID. Based on this experience, and the durability of the vacuum, I would strongly recommend RIDGID.
