James says: “One of the first purchases I made when I bought my house was a shop vacuum. I bought a RIDGID not having done any research — I was in Home Depot and that’s what they had. It turned out to be the right choice. It’s plenty powerful and the locking hose is really handy. However, like any shop vacuum, the included hose is bulky, stiff, and short. One day, I needed another hose, and I purchased RIDGID’s Pro Hose. It’s way more flexible and durable, and it’s compatible with other brands of vacuums that take friction-fit hoses.”
We could use one of these in the shop. We, too, picked up a RIDGID vacuum because it was “the one that was there” — and we’re also happy with ours. Interestingly, last month’s RIDGID combo kit winner said he used to go through vacuums before he picked up a RIDGID; looks like it’s a winner.
I couldn’t find pricing for these quickly. Have any of you found them readily available at the ‘Depot or elsewhere? I think I’m going to pick one up.
