That was a good deal. I have used those vacuums quite a bit at work. I also have the detail kit at home. I'll be honest, the vacuum is OK for cleaning a car but too small for much else. It's a nice vac but personally I would rather have a larger vacuum with a 2" plus hose. The detail kit is also too small in diameter. Things like water bottle caps will plug up the hose attachments. Some of the hose attachments also easily pop off the hose if you are vigorously cleaning. You really only need two different hose attachments for vacuuming a car. The wide mouth one and the small long skinny one. I would get a larger diameter kit.

The green VF6000 filter is HEPA rated; whether the vacuum itself is sealed well enough to prevent that stuff from getting into the air? No idea.

You're about to get blasted with people telling you to hire a remediation company (which will cost you thousands of dollars). If you decide to take it on yourself, I'd recommend at the very least that VF6000 filter, vacuum bags (which alone should contain most of the material), a good quality 3M respirator with P100 filters, dropcloths to limit any spread, etc.

For 9/10 people I'd recommend the one you linked - that was a stellar deal. Throw some bags in it (5 for $15 @ amazon) and it makes a great general vacuum for cleaning up during/after renovation projects.

These 16 gallon ones have a ton of capacity (and power), but frankly they are incredibly bulky and awkward to move around. Traversing stairs with them (without banging against the walls/rails) is super annoying.

FWIW: I have both. If I had to choose one I'd keep the one you linked (I bought the vac & detail kit separately and probably paid $100-120 total, and would buy it it again at that price).

Not sure if I should get this or just keep the 4 gal 5 HP with the car detailing kit from the other day. I don't really have a specific need for a shopvac at the moment... anyone have any suggestions?

Here's the smaller one: https://slickdeals.net/f/13529707-ridgid-4-gallon-5-0-peak-hp-portable-wet-dry-vac-w-auto-detailing-kit-69-free-shipping Went for $69 (nice) so it was $30 cheaper than this one.

Nice deal OP. Does anyone know how this one holds the filter in place? I heard the newer Rigid vacs have a cheaper design now.

its a plastic shaft with a barb on the end, filter end is rubber, slips over and locks it down, easy to remove and clean.

So would I be better off going with a different company's shopvac? Any recommendations?

Would this one be worth the $20 premium to have the detachable blower? https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGI.../304795082 I don't have a leaf blower, so that would be nice for being able to clear out the garage or driveway every so often. Probably wouldn't use it for leaves or anything.

Looks like I'd be missing out on the two large wheels (debatable whether that's actually an improvement) the fine dust filter which I'm not sure really makes a big difference for me, and one or two fine(ish) attachments. I'm torn, what do you guys think? Is there enough utility in the detachable blower to warrant the $20 increase?

I have a 16 gallon ridgid from years ago with a detachable blower. I'd definitely recommend the detach blower. I never thought I'd use it either. It's a very powerful blower. I definitely didn't pay that much though. Pretty sure I paid only half that price back then.

Ok, I think I'll just return the smaller 4 gal one and wait on a deal for the larger detachable 6.5 HP variety. No immediate need so I can afford to wait. Thanks for the help guys.

For 9/10 people I'd recommend the one you linked - that was a stellar deal. Throw some bags in it (5 for $15 @ amazon) and it makes a great general vacuum for cleaning up during/after renovation projects.

These 16 gallon ones have a ton of capacity (and power), but frankly they are incredibly bulky and awkward to move around. Traversing stairs with them (without banging against the walls/rails) is super annoying.

Could you link the bags you're talking about? Appreciate it.
