It has been this price before in oct 2020:
https://slickdeals.net/e/14397710-home-depot-ridgid-3-gal-18-volt-cordless-handheld-wet-dry-shop-vacuum-69-00-fs

The vacuum is very nice, has a blower port feature which I just used to clear my sink drain by blowing the water through, then disassembling the plumbing underneath with out having all the water in the trap. Convenient. It also has the ability to limit the suction power with a simple plastic piece you twist to adjust the suction power if you wanted to vacuum the saw dust around your socket sets, but you didn't want to suck up all the sockets.

I will say it is a bit cumbersome taking the thing apart to empty it. One user complained he had trouble 'seating' the filter. I do not have this issue, and also with a lifetime warranty, I don't really pay much attention to it anymore. It is a quick change filter, just snap it on and off.

The stock VF3400 filter that comes with this Vacuum is the white one and does not do a good job with filtering dust, which would definitely allow a big puff of dust to come out the back.

If you upgrade to the blue Model # VF3500A filter like this deal:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13559326-4-pack-ridgid-3-layer-fine-dust-pleated-paper-filter-for-3-0-gal-to-4-5-gal-wet-dry-vacs-38-w-s-s-9-50-each-free-shipping?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1
You get the blue filter which does a MUCH better job at stopping that puff of dust.

Then if you still want more dust protection, go with the VF3600 HEPA filter:
https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGI.../205728529

And lastly of course if you want to vacuum water, you need the foam filter VF3700:
https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGI.../300500234

I pretty much dedicated a 9ah battery to this vacuum and get 30 min of run time with it. It is power hungry. But I have used a 4ah with good success.

It also has a lifetime warranty. (Registration is not required to get the lifetime warranty, but you register at https://www.ridgid.com/ or https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/prod...gistration , not the same place you register power tools for the LSA, this is the red looking site to register vacuums.) Thanks to slickdeals, I'm completely vested in the Ridgid brand of tools because I got sick of all my Ryobi batteries dying and being stuck with the option to buy another drill and battery for $80 or a battery for $70. But now I make sure to get all my Ridgid batteries as part of a kit so they come with LSA lifetime warranty.

The LSA is for Ridgid power tools and batteries manufactured by Techtronic Industries.

Ridgid vacuums come from Emerson and have their own lifetime warranty. Because it is an actual warranty, not an "agreement", registration is recommended but not required.

"Not having to deal with Ridgid's weird LSA registration is a bonus, HOWEVER, I can't find any factory authorized service place for these and my local HDs won't take them in and exchange or send them off for service like they do with the other cordless Ridgid items. HD tells me any service after 30 days requires you to mail the vac back to Emerson for service (likely at your expense). Not a deal breaker, but just an FYI for folks who are used to the way the *other* Ridgid does things."

You can buy paint strainers and use them as "pre-filters" for you real filter.

This thing is super awesome. I use mine all the time, much easier than getting out the 14g shop vac.

Suction is decent enough. Great for quick clean up of things (e.g. drywall dust if you're drilling holes to hang something). I find for vacuuming the car it's good for things on the leather, and other smooth surfaces. But for vacuuming out grass and other stuff that gets embedded in floor mats the full sized one is still best.

This isn't a replacement for a full size shop vac, but is a great addition to the tool box arsenal. Would also be good for people who live in an apartment, or don't have storage space for a full sized one.

For the LSA on this thing you have to register with the Ridgid pro website - for some reason this tool won't register on the standard Ridgid power tool portal.

Also, I'll second blueapplepaste - it works great and I've been happy with it for at least 2 years.

I used this vacuum every single day of the year. Literally every single day. It's a solid performer and this is a great price. It's usually never ever on sale. If mine broke toda (And its my fault), I would not even hesitate to pay for another one at full price. Otherwise if it breaks on its own, I have LSA to cover for it with a lifetime warranty with registration.

Thanks. Additional reviews vs other brands show Ridgid runs ~15 min on a 4ah battery which is lowest of the major brands but is best at airflow (mph) and filtering out small and larger dust particles. Great buy at this price!

Absolutely love mine. Paid $99, don't regret it for a second - great deal at $69. I use the 1 gallon paint strainer nets you can pickup at box stores for about $1 as a pre-filter, work like a charm. Running off a 6AH octane battery, and i get several 3-5 min sessions over a couple days with battery to spare.

any good deals on batteries to go with this?

I assume this is the same one and they were very happy with the performance here

do you need to use incognito to get the price to change? I'm using all of the zips here and it never changes from $99

Wish this came in the bundle with the inflator rather than the regular vacuum
