Ridgid redesigns its wet/dry vacs

Ridgid introduces its redesigned wet/dry vacuum line of 6-, 12-, 14- and 16-gallon models featuring an ergonomic makeover.

“Jobsite cleanup is never a fun task for the professional, and it’s one that can often slow down a job. Ridgid wet/dry vacs have always been known for their superior pickup performance; we wanted to see if there were new ways we could make the cleanup process better,” Sabrina Witkowski, Ridgid’s Global Marketing Manager, said in a statement. “Working alongside professionals in the field helped us discover some clear ease-of-use innovations that could help tradespeople get on to the next job faster.”

Redesigned features include a front-to-back top carry handle, added comfort-grip side handles, a new drum key and side latches, a larger on/off switch, and built-in cord wrap.
