Wet/Dry Vacs

Emerson’s Ridgid® brand introduces 2 new toolbox-style wet/dry vacs designed for power, portability and accessibility. The 3 Gallon 18V Cordless NXT Wet/Dry Vac and 3 Gallon 5.0 Peak HP NXT Wet/Dry Vac are 30% smaller and 10% lighter than the toolbox-style 4.5 Gallon ProPack Wet/Dry Vac, and due to the high-efficiency design provides a 20% increase in overall vacuum efficiency for a multitude of jobs.


Each new vac features a rectangular toolbox design, weighs less than 13 lbs and has a 1 7/8" Super-Flex 2' to 6' expansion hose that doubles as a blower. They also have enclosed compartments to store the crevice tool, dusting brush, hose and battery (only for cordless unit) or cord (only for corded unit). In addition, each 3 Gallon NXT Wet/Dry Vac comes with an oversized power switch, position-locking handle for added convenience and a built-in, suction-powered Ridgid Sweep dustpan that allows users to either sweep debris in or glide the tool over the mess to be sucked up.


Ridgid NXT Wet/Dry Vacs are designed and engineered for best-in-class power, performance and durability. They have been trusted by trade professionals and DIYers alike for more than 20 years and come backed with the Ridgid Full Lifetime Warranty.


The 3 Gallon NXT Wet/Dry Vacs are available for purchase in-store at select Home Depot locations or online at
