Home Depot always has a Ridgid shop vac on sale every holiday season, and this year’s no different. Just like last year, Home Depot has kicked off their Black Friday 2015 Ridgid wet/dry vac deal a week or so ahead of time.
Right now, you can buy this Ridgid 16-gallon vacuum for just $39.88.
Here’s what you get with the Ridgid WD1636 vacuum:
- 16-gallon tank
- 5.0 peak HP motor
- 7 ft x 1-7/8″ hose
- 2 extension wands, utility nozzle, pleated paper filter
- 15 ft power cord
- blower port
- integrated handles
- built-in drain
While I think Craftsman’s holiday shop vacs are a little better, since they feature everyday wet/dry vacs, I have seen surprisingly few complaints about this Ridgid “special buy” holiday vacuum deal. This is the same vac that went on sale last year, and also the same one from 2013, and most buyers seem to be quite pleased with the vac’s quality, features, and longevity.
There’s no telling how long this deal will last. In previous years, Ridgid Black Friday vacuum deals sold out very quickly. This year, Home Depot is selling these online for home delivery and in-store pickup, and they seem to have plenty in stock. My local store reportedly has 88 vacuums in stock, although I only saw 4 on the sales floor the other day.
I can’t tell you how well these would compare with pricier everyday models, but I do know that I have yet to see a better Black Friday 2015 vacuum deal.
