  • The new cordless vacuum from Ridgid

    Anyone know how good is the cordless 3 gallon tank vacuum?

    By good I mean-

    Life on the 18v battery
    Strength on the 18v battery



    Cant decide whether to purchase a 24v battery or not (so expensive)

    Thanks!

        I did a review of this tool a bit ago. Check it out at the following thread:

        http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16172

        And there IS a noticable runtime difference with the 24 volt battery, unlike what Le Bricoleur said. This tool runs great with either, but the 24 volt really gives it oomph. But even with the 18 volt 1.5 Ah lithium ion batteries, you're looking at about 12 minutes no-load constant run time on a full charge. I wouldn't go out and get a 24 volt battery kit just for this tool, but like the MaxSelect Circular saw and MaxSelect Reciprocating saw, there is a huge added benefit.

        A great little tool.
