The RYOBI 18V One+ 3 Gal. Project Wet/Dry P3240 is an excellent cordless shop vacuum that offers strong suction force and can pick up most debris on carpets or rugs without worrying about getting dirt everywhere!

This versatile tool also performs well when dealing with liquid spills; its short battery life (when paired)is a small drawback but not enough to outweigh these benefits – especially considering how loud it usually operates anyway.

Our Verdict:

For Workshop:

The RYOBI P3240 is an excellent choice for cleaning workshops. It has strong suction that can easily remove debris on low pile rugs, bare surfaces, or deep cracks and crevices no matter how large the job may be thanks to its powerful motorized brush tool head with 6 inches of vacuum height which creates tons of dirt packing power! The onboard storage also allows you quick access to any component needing attention while working in your shop so there’s never anything left behind causing more work down future days when all this construction debris needs to be cleaned up. With its wide range of attachments, you can customize your cleaning job for nearly any situation making it clear why this is the best choice for any workshop cleanup!

The RYOBI P3240 overall works great in almost any situation and is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking for an efficient and powerful vacuum cleaner for their workshop or garage. Its portability makes it easy to move around if needed and its strong suction power will help you tackle most tasks with ease. We highly recommend this vacuum cleaner as it is probably one of the best choices on the market today. Try out the RYOBI P3240 today and make sure your workspace stays clean and organized!

  • Powerful motorized brush tool head with 6 inches of vacuum height
  • Easy portability for convenience
  • Onboard storage for quick access to components
  • needing attention
  • Wide range of attachments to customize the cleaning job
  • The price is a bit higher than other models in the same category
  • Can be loud when running at full power, so noise-sensitive areas may need to take that into consideration.

For Bare Floors

The RYOBI P3240 is a great tool for cleaning floors that are made of bare wood or laminate. With its strong suction force, it can easily clean up pet hair as well as small and bulky debris on this type of surface–and will even deal with material wedged into cracks/crevices! The battery life isn’t too bad either; though short when compared to other cordless vacuum cleaners out there (it only lasts about 20 minutes), you’ll still get about 45 uses before needing recharging thanks to its 4Ah pack which also makes storage easier since these batteries don’t go dead quickly as others do after just one use. Plus, the lightweight design makes it easy to move around when cleaning, and its onboard storage makes sure you never have to worry about losing any parts or attachments.

  • Powerful suction
  • Long battery life (45 uses before needing recharging)
  • Lightweight and easy to maneuver
  • Onboard storage for easy access to tools
  • Great for bare wood or laminate floors
  • Short battery life (20 minutes)
  • Can be a little noisy at times
  • The dust container is small and needs to be emptied often.

Low-Pile Carpet

The Ryobi P3240 is a fantastic option for vacuuming low-pile carpets. It easily cleans pet hair as well as large and fine debris on your floor, with its simple design making it reliable to maintain in addition! The short hose makes underneath tables & chairs difficult but no matter what you’re using this machine has got what’s needed – just make sure not to go over 4 Ah because after 15 minutes of use there won’t be any more power left from that battery pack alone… The powerhead itself is designed with a motorized brush tool which helps loosen up dirt and dust, so it can be easily sucked away by the vacuum. It’s also lightweight, but the design does make it a bit awkward to maneuver around tight areas.

  • Lightweight and easy to maneuver
  • Motorized brush head for loosening up dirt and dust
  • Reliable design
  • The short hose makes it difficult to clean under tables and chairs
  • The limited battery capacity of 4 Ah, so only 15 minutes of use per charge

High-Pile Carpet:

The RYOBI P3240 is a high-end vacuum for those with delicate carpets and rugs. It has strong suction, but does not have the extra attachment of some other models to help clean up debris on hardwood floors or carpeted areas where there are lots of knot holes that would otherwise get stuck in between threads when using just one brush roller suffices most jobs at hand–it’s perfect! The 4Ah battery pack provides enough power before you need an outlet again thanks to its max speed mode setting; this way it only takes 1/2 hours per room instead of staying plugged into the wall all day long while cleaning large spaces like my whole house (which I did once).

  • Perfect for high-pile carpets
  • Longer battery life with the max speed mode setting
  • Comes with powerful suction and one brush roller
  • Can be used to clean large areas such as entire homes
  • Does not have extra attachments to help clean hardwood floors or carpeted areas
  • May be too powerful for some delicate carpets and rugs, risking damage or overly aggressive cleaning.

For Pets:

The RYOBI P3240 is a great vacuum for pet owners. It can clean up all types of hair on bare floors, low-pile carpet, and high-pile plush furniture with no problem at all! The design makes it easy to dump debris or wash out any accumulated dirt from your machine as needed too – which will save you some time in between cleaning sessions since these tasks are literally one button presses away ( fantastic!). Unfortunately, this loud device might startle nearby pets if they’re sensitive about sound levels but luckily there’s an option available where users don’t have anything else besides their voice when communicating through text messages/Calls VoicEMAIL).

  • Lightweight and maneuverable to easily move around furniture
  • Has great suction power, which is ideal for picking up pet hair
  • Can clean both bare floors and carpets with ease
  • Easy to dump debris and wash out dirt from the machine
  • Noisy, which may startle sensitive pets
  • Voice messages/Calls VoicEMAIL feature is only available for an additional fee

For Stairs:

The RYOBI P3240 is a great choice for vacuuming stairs. Its cordless design ensures that you don’t need to worry about tripping over any power cables, and its handheld form factor allows it to be used on all sorts of surfaces with ease – including those steep flights where other models might struggle or come off-track entirely! However, there are some drawbacks: The short vacuum hose makes accessing harder-to-reach areas difficult without taking up your entire time while cleaning; also note how bulky this particular model becomes when fully charged because its dustbin fills quickly from picking up large amounts like shedding leaves in autumn months (or Years). But despite these issues, we still recommend it for anyone who needs a device specifically designed to clean staircases!

  • The cordless design prevents trip hazards
  • The handheld form factor makes it easy to maneuver and access hard-to-reach areas
  • Powerful suction for picking up large debris like shedding leaves
  • A short vacuum hose limits the area that can be cleaned in a single use
  • Bulky when fully charged due to quickly filling dustbin.

For Cars Interiors:

The RYOBI P3240 is a great cordless vacuum for your car. It has strong suction, allowing it to remove most debris from any part of the vehicle with little hassle, and an upholstery tool that’s perfect if you need help cleaning fabric-lined surfaces or crevices in tight corners! Unfortunately, this model doesn’t come equipped with turbo brushes so be sure not to miss out on all its capabilities by purchasing one separately (although they’re rather cheap). It’s also important to note that the suction might be too powerful for some people, as it can easily pick up small objects like coins or pens. Despite this, its design makes it perfect for those who need their car’s interior to look like a brand new one!

  • Strong suction
  • Upholstery tool
  • Low cost
  • No turbo brush
  • The powerful suction can pick up small items

Sizes and Variants:

The RYOBI P3240 is available to purchase in two different forms – without a battery or with one that has been fitted out. You can get the green version, but only if you go ahead and buy it straight away! The addition of the battery will easily double its price, but at least you don’t need to worry about buying a new charger since it comes with one already. Additionally, it’s important to note that this vacuum is quite bulky and heavy when fully charged, weighing in at 11 lbs.


Build Quality:

The RYOBI P3240 is impressively well-built. It has a rubberized handle and feels more robust than most household cordless vacuums on the market today, such as Tineco’s pure one x tango. The hard plastic exterior ensures that this vacuum will last through years worth of use without easily showing wear or tear in comparison to other products currently available from competitors like Eufy RoboVac 11S ($$$)

The initial impression given off by its impressive build quality does not seem promising when you look closer though because while it appears powerful enough at first glance – cycling buttons failed repeatedly during our testing and the vacuum would start up again before it had a chance to finish vacuuming.

The RYOBI P3240 also features a minimum of accessories, such as an integrated crevice tool or a dusting brush. Its primary focus is on the basics – suctioning debris from carpets and hard surfaces.

Maintenance of RYOBI P3240:

The RYOBI P3240 is one of the easiest vacuums to maintain. Simply detach its dirt compartment by unlatching two release clips on either side, then dump any accumulated debris out into an external bin or trash can (don’t forget about this!). After cleaning up your spill with soap and water before refitting the filter back onto the vacuum body! The multi-stage filtration system uses both a foam and paper filter to ensure that all dust and particles are trapped inside the dirt compartment. Additionally, the 16-foot power cord allows for constant cleaning without having to constantly unplug and plug back in your vacuum. Finally, the RYOBI P3240 is lightweight (only 7 pounds!)

Recurring Cost:

The P3240 is an excellent tool for those looking to prolong their workday without compromising on performance. It has very low recurring costs and can be used by any contractor with minimal maintenance requirements!

Storage Capacity:

The RYOBI P3240 is a vacuum that has been designed to be as easy and simple to store away, while still offering all of its powerful features. It comes with built-in mounts for your crevice tool as well as upholstery tools so you don’t have any problems when it’s time put this amazing machine away at night!

Dirt Compartment:

The RYOBI P3240 is great for cleaning up larger messes. It has a dirt compartment that can hold 3 gallons of debris, so it will be able to handle even the most stubborn stains on your flooring! One cool feature about this vacuum’s design? When you reach maximum capacity with liquid or solid spills (depending upon what kind), then all suction power gets cut off automatically – saving time and energy while still getting everything sucked into one tidy package at home before we go back out there again…

Inside the Box:

  • RYOBI P3240 Vacuum Cleaner
  • Crevice Tool and Upholstery Tool
  • 16 ft. Power Cord
  • Dusting Brush
  • Foam Filter
  • Paper Filter


With its cordless design, this blower is perfect for those who want to work without an outlet or have limited space. With up to 4′ 9″ of reach and a hose length that can accommodate any job requirement from small areas like decks onto larger projects such as roofs; there isn’t anything you won’t be able to handle! The minimum wand length means it will fit into tight spaces too while still providing plenty more power than most other models on the market today – ensuring less hassle when trying different angles during each chore. The cordless design also means no tangled cords to worry about, which is always a plus! Additionally, the blower itself comes in a lightweight yet heavy-duty material that makes it both durable and easy to maneuver.

Carry Functions:

The RYOBI P3240 is one of the most portable canister vacuums we’ve tested. While it’s heavier than some competing models, you’ll find that this unnecessary weight doesn’t bother you when carrying it around your home or office with just a hand!

Battery Performace:

The RYOBI P3240 has an interesting and convenient feature that enables you to check the charge status of your vacuum by pressing just one button! This way, there’s no need for guesswork or frustrated looks when it won’t turn on. If this happens in testing then we recommend cycling through all four LED lights until they illuminate correctly- because let’s face it: not being able to use something isn’t fun at any rate (even if only temporarily).

Features Quality:

The RYOBI P3240 is a vacuum cleaner with very basic features. It does not have any adjustments for the surface type or lighting options, which makes it difficult to use on different types of floorings without having your hands full doing maintenance work elsewhere in order to achieve victory over dirt!

Tools Inside

The Ryobi P3240 is a great power tool for all your home improvement needs! It has plenty of tools and accessories to get the job done, including two brush rolls. You can also take it apart if needed which makes cleaning easier too!


The RYOBI P3240 has a special mode to get rid of pesky debris like leaves and pine needles. To turn it on, you need only detach the hose from one end or connect another tool called “Upholstery Tool” which is designed for cleaning upholstery inside homes (not sure if yours needs servicing). The motor isn’t very powerful in this setting but at least now we know how best to use our new knowledge about its functionality!


On Bare Floors

With a size and weight that would make any contractor happy, the RYOBI P3240 delivers exceptional performance on bare floors. With its upholstery tool attachment for deeper cleaning or when dealing with bulky material like cereal in your kitchen sink – you won’t be disappointed!

It easily cleans small debris such as rice without slowing down too much because there’s no need to empty out dirt until it fills completely unlike other vacuums which have bags that become full quickly after picking something up.

The brush roll system also helps to get rid of pet hair, dirt, and dust quickly and easily. The bristles are angled so that they can reach the nooks and crannies in your home. The adjustable suction power is great for cleaning different surfaces such as carpets, hardwood floors, and tiles.

On Low-Pile Carpets:

The RYOBI P3240 is a powerful, but lightweight and easy-to-use vacuum for those looking to clean up low-pile carpets or other soft surfaces. When its hose/utterance combo tool is attached the bin fills quickly with fine dust like baking soda; however, it does not perform as well on larger debris such as sand which will be picked up by any standard carpet cleaner without issue thanks in part from its compact size (making storage easier). We’re currently working out an empty scenario so results may vary depending on what kind of messes you can create!

On High-Pile Carpets:

With its large dustbin and flexible hose, the RYOBI P3240 is designed to tackle any messes you can throw at it. It features an exceptional performance on high-pile carpets as well as fine material like baking soda – even if your house has some messy guests! The only thing that might hold this guy back from being perfect? You have to fill up his bin before getting started so he doesn’t max out our testing scale with 6 L of collected trash or more (as long as it isn’t too much!).

On Pet Hair Floor:

The RYOBI P3240 is a powerhouse when it comes to cleaning any type of floor. From bare floors, low pile carpets, or high rises this machine will take care of all your needs with ease!

Suction Power:

The RYOBI P3240 is a versatile tool that can be used for everything from cleaning upholstery to vacuuming floors. It has strong suction when using its hose attachment and its easy-to-use, lightweight design makes this powerhead perfect for any homeowner!


While it is true that the RYOBI P3240 could be too loud for some people, you will find yourself able to hear much more detail when cleaning your home or office with this powerful machine.

Cleaning Conditions:

The RYOBI P3240 is a strong vacuum that can get under furniture with ease. It’s equipped with two interchangeable nozzles so you’ll always have the right attachment for any job! However, its short hose makes it difficult to clean hard-to-reach places and rugs may be dragged on the flooring if not held down tightly while vacuuming them due high suction force from this powerful machine

The Ryobi p32000 has impressive maneuverability thanks in part to built-in wheels and the ability to pivot 180 degrees. This makes it suitable for cleaning in tight spaces, under furniture, or around corners.

Performance for Pet Hairs:

The RYOBI P3240 is a great tool for cleaning upholstery. It’s designed with two different tools, one that works well on pets and another more traditional brush-style attachment that can remove hair from furniture too!

Quality of Air:

The RYOBI P3240 is great for trapping fine particles, but it’s not perfect. If you have really big smaller dust pieces or chips that manage to get past this device then there are two other ports on your power drill where they’ll end up going when released from their imprisonment in one hose connection site and enter another imaginative world of compartments waiting with open arms – readymade homes if ever I’ve seen them!

Cracked Surfaces:

The RYOBI P3240 is a great tool for vacuuming up debris in cracks. The Upholstery Tool makes it even more effective at cleaning large areas and allows you to clean whatever surface that needs attention without having any interruption from contact with the wood or other surfaces nearby

Paying close attention while using this particular model will ensure productivity, as well-advantaged by its wide pickup path which helps eliminate unnecessary trips back over parts already cleaned off previously. In addition, the dustbin itself is easy-to-empty, so you won’t have to worry about cleaning out the small particles that may be remaining in its receptacles.

Performance for Stains:

The RYOBI P3240 would be better suited as a supplement to another cordless power tool rather than something you rely on exclusively for your home cleaning needs.

Wet Compatability:

The RYOBI P3240 is a powerful vacuum that does not just suck up water, but also leaves your surface dry. The strong suction force easily removes liquid from surfaces so you don’t need to worry about scrubbing or wiping anything away!
