Ridgid 16 Gallon NXT Wet Dry Vacuum with a detachable blower is by far of the most powerful vacuums they’ve created, and makes it two tools in one with a large 16-gallon drum, and you’ll be able to minimize your long trips to the dumpster. So whether you are looking to upgrade or find that right vacuum I will show you what this product is all about.
There is a large capacity drum so you are more than ready to take on any mess. The 6.5 peak horsepower motor is designed for heavy-duty cleanup. The two-piece drum is designed to be durable and ready to withstand the environment of a construction site. Whether you’re picking up debris or water, the NXT is ready to perform.
Every Ridgid vacuum I have owned had the blower feature, but none like this. This is a great idea and the blower feature is something I use a lot. There are many times I’ve needed to blow debris out of a tight location, and the quick detachable feature makes it easy to switch from vacuuming to blowing. Just grab the blower wand from the caddy and leave the vacuum hose plugged in.
The onboard storage is absolutely something anyone can appreciate. All four casters are a spot to store your accessories. Having the storage caddy on the back will make organization a breeze, allowing you a place to put the locking accessories like the wand, utility, and wet nozzle. Storage was not forgotten in this design; the 2.5in hose can make itself at home around the top of the vacuum drum. Last but not least the power cord is perfectly placed on the back of the blower or the top of the vacuum, depending on how you are looking at it.
With the locking accessory, there is no need to worry about being disconnected, just tug and focus on the mess ahead. The NXT rolls around on casters so you can follow the chaos to the finish line. There is a 7foot by 2.5in flexible hose, so you can pick up big chunks quickly clearing out an area.
You cannot go wrong with the 20 ft. power cord, it eliminates the need for an extension cord in most rooms giving you the ultimate reach.
The vacuum comes with everything you need to put it to use in the box. This ensures you are able to do a quick assembly. Overall a great option for a job site or in my case a workshop. In my experience, the Ridgid vacuums have been a workhorse for me, and I have no doubt this one will be. Ridgid is a strong believer in their products, and this shop-vac comes with a full lifetime warranty.
