Ridgid 18V Cordless Wet Dry Shop Vacuum

While there are options in the cordless vacuum sector, most brands shy away go going full-size. The Ridgid 18V cordless wet dry shop vacuum bucks the trend with a 9-gallon design that’s surprisingly powerful.


  • Uses Ridgid 18V power tool batteries, including Octane
  • Powerful enough suction to pick up nails and screws
  • Sucks 5 gallons of water in less than 10 seconds
  • Two battery ports extend runtime beyond an hour


  • No significant drawbacks

The Ridgid cordless wet dry vacuum is a no-compromise battery-powered replacement for a corded 9-gallon vac. It has the power to clean up wet and dry messes effectively and is capable of well over an hour of runtime when you use both of its battery ports.

We love this model as a primary option for mobile car cleaning and jobsite cleanup where power is unavailable or at a premium. Its convenience also makes it a great option for any garage or shop.

I own this vac, and agree that it’s great. I use it often to clean up my mess at a the end of a job, and never have to find an outlet, or dig out extension cords.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
