Consensus

our Verdict

Top experts hailed the Ryobi 18V One+ 3 Gal. Project Wet/Dry Vacuum, recommending it for workshops. Researchers at Pro Tool Reviews hailed its spacious 13.2L dustbin.

However, if you prefer a large dirtbag-equipped compartment, explore the Roborock H7 review. Testers hailed this Ryobi vacuum’s wet cleaning ability, although emptying the bin can be messy.

Browse our Shark ION W1 WANDVAC review for a hygienic one-touch emptying system. The Ryobi vacuum produced an impressive 10.43 kPa of suction and removed a whopping 100% of the large debris on bare floors and 90% on high-pile carpets during testing.

It removed an impressive 100% of the pet hair on all floor types. Pet owners who require a turbo brush can consider the Samsung Bespoke Jet review. Editors at Tool Review Zone criticized its heavy 10.36-lb mass, however.

For a portable alternative, check out the Miele Triflex HX1 review. The One+ has a low 15-minute runtime and a high 88.7 dBA noise rating. Consider the Samsung POWERbot R7040 review for a better runtime.
