    I’ve had good luck with the Ridgid ones.

    My dad has this one. We used it the other weekend doing some projects around my house and I was very impressed with it.

    I have 4 of the ridgid 16 gal with the wheels, we can’t tear them up. Upgrade the hose and get some bags.

    I did this upgrade for my shop vac and have been very pleased. Mostly sucking up sawdust, metal shavings, and dog hair off the shop floor. Adding the dust separator with the bucket above the vac has been great. Hardly anything makes it past the bucket so your filter stays clean. You can see the bucket filling up so it is easy to tell when you need to empty it. Finally one of the best perks that I did not foresee when building this was with the whole apparatus now being roughly twice as tall, I no longer have to bend down to drag a vacuum around the shop.

    $ 109 for Costco members. Comes with tons of accessories. Had it for about a year and pleased with it.

    I got one of these last year at Costco when they were 89.99. Works great so far.

    Indeed. We have three ourselves.

    Go look up ProjectFarm on YouTube. He tested all the major name brands side by side.

    If y'all aren't familiar with his channel, he tests pretty much everything you can think of. If I am buying something for my shop/house I go check and see if he's tested it. He's not sponsored by anyone and all of the stuff is bought with donations he takes in from his channel. He's done everything from motor oil to law mower engines to screw driver bits.
