You’ve gotta love the way Ryobi’s adding everything but the kitchen sink to their 18V One+ line, including this new wet/dry canister vac.  What a great idea!  We’ve got a humongo-big wet/dry, but it’s a PITA to drag out just to clean up the car or pick up a small spill.  This looks great for that kind of thing, and if you’ve already bought into the One+ system via one of Ryobi’s low-price combo kit deals, you’re good to go.

It’s middle-sized with a two-gallon tank, which in my opinion is just right for carrying around.  Much larger and you’re pulling your arm out of the socket when it’s full, and much smaller keeps you running to the trash can too often.  It’s a true wet/dry complete with a removable plug for draining liquids. 

This rocks, BTW, for cleaning up a spill under the car.  Troubleshooting on Project Yukon we kept ending up with a little bit of coolant — whatever remained in the upper radiator hose — underneath.  This would have handled it fine and would have saved us getting out, plugging in, and putting away the monstervac.

No MSRP yet — but we expect it soon.

    YESSssss! I’ve been kvetching for months (or however long it’s been since I learned about the OnePlus system) that their dustbuster was anemic, and that it was the largest reason to avoid the system. It seems that obstacle has now been overcome.

    Come to Butthead.

    That is freakin’ cool, and it shall be mine.

    Ryobi is adding some nice useful tools lately. I just picked up the One+ Radio and am loving it. However, I do am a little bit concerned with this vac as my dustbuster isn’t sucking it all. So does that make it suck? I wish it would!

    Hopeful they used some other technology to make this one work better. Better try it in those 30 days and return ASAP if not satisfied at all.

    Oh how cool! I must have one! The dustbuster thing is okay as far as it goes, but this should be much better. Alas, my local HD seems to be far behind the times in getting the newer One+ stuff. They’ve never even got the fan that was previewed on here months ago.

    I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it in the store. I bought one just over a month ago, and I have used it like crazy. It’s a great thing to carry about when you don’t feel like dragging a huge wet/dry vac out for a little mess or something.

    Hey Ryobi People, Listen we have one of these Ryobi Wet/Dry Vac. We absolutely love it, but they are very hard to find. We would like to purchase another one. Can you help me find where I might be able to locate one. All of the tools that my husband has is Ryobi. We have two Ryobi chargers, one my husband keeps in the garage and one in the kitchen. Now that we have Lithium batteries it runs so much longer than with the regular 18v ones. I hate the thoughts of buying something else with all the Ryobi batteries that we have. So if you could please help me out in locating a website or a place that has Ryobi Canister 18v I would appreciate it. (Amazon.com don’t know when they will be in stock).

    Thank you,
    Linda

    Ryobi has long since discontinued their P3200 Cordless Cannister Wet/Dry Vac. It is rare to find one online and they sell for an obscene amount of money used.

    TTI makes Ryobi as well as Sears Craftsman C3 line of cordless tools and you can still find the Craftsman C3 Wet/Dry Vac available for sale at around $60.

    That is your best bet, but the Ryobi batteries are no longer nearly-compatible (with a minor modification) as they were years ago. Today you will need to buy a Craftsman C3 charger and battery pack separately. You might as well buy a whole kit that includes one power tool, the battery, and charger as then you will get the power tool nearly free if not the same total cost.
