Re: Shop vac replacement - recommendations?

John in NM
I bought one of the bigger Rigid's a few years ago and I like it. Only complaint is that it's easy to tear the bag on the place where the nozzle enters the bag, but I would imagine all are like that. Bags are readily available at Home Despot, vacuum has good power. Haven't tried the warranty on any Rigid stuff, but then I'm not a warranty person - I just go buy a new starter for my horrible old truck rather than trying to get a free one from the near-universal "lifetime" warranty.

I prefer bags to cartridge filters myself. Most of what I vacuum up I never want to see again :D Emptying the vac was always a messy pain in the neck when I used a cartridge filter.
