Given the fact that Proteam and Ridgid are both owned by Emerson Tool Company, it is no surprise that Ridgid would eventually have a backpack vacuum. To me, it looks like it is based off of the Proteam Super Coach Pro 6 backpack vacuum with a different tool set and a shorter cord at only 20 feet. I think the tools are regular Ridgid shop vac tools just adapted for a backpack vacuum.

I saw those a while ago and didn't know of the connection between the two. It's a great price for the machine though at about 250, sure the tools are pretty cheap but those proteam backpacks have great power.

I've used the Super Coach version before. Very nice machine even though I'm not a fan of backpacks. But I did remember one of the filter covers either broke or didn't like to stay on which I thought was annoying. The Ridgid version looks like they've improved that. I think this would be excellent to use for reaching up to higher areas that the wet/dry vacs can't get to. Though using a paper bag wouldn't be smart as it can clog up really fast with drywall or saw dust, not to mention the cost of replacing bags versus using the wet/dry vacs as bagless that you can save money on. Overall, I'd prefer using the wet/dry vacs over this.
