Emerson Ridgid Wet/Dry Vacuum Class Action Lawsuit Allegations
The Emerson Ridgid line of wet/dry vacuums are designed to remove solid debris and liquids from various surfaces through the use of suction generated by an electric motor.

Emerson charges a premium for Ridgid wet/dry vacuums purported to have higher horsepower ratings.
Consumers have alleged in a class action lawsuit that the horsepower ratings stated on different model of the Ridgid wet/dry vacuums are all materially overstated when measured or calculated through generally acceptable scientific methods and equations.
