  • 6 gallon shop-vac

    Went into the local HD yesterday and they had a pile of the 6 gallon Ridgid shop vacs, model WD0635, stacked up for $29.97.

    While not as good of a deal as the usual Thanksgiving day sale on the 12 gallon model, this is $10 less than the shelf price of the 6 gallon. And I think someone pointed out that these 6 gallon Ridgid models are being phased out in favor of the Husky brand models.

    Specs here:
    Seems a decent *and compact* shop vac. Note, no drain on this model.

    The new HUSKY 6 gallon shop vac is a real POC. The HD near me has them on display and it really is pathetic. I wouldn't buy it for $10. Maybe for $5 but not one cent more.

    The 6 gallon RIDGID one isn't bad. If it's what you need, go get one while the getting is good. Do watch out about the hose size. Be sure you can in fact get all the attachments you want. If not, you'll be adding on another hose and the deal isn't so nice anymore.
