Questions & Answers

Is it really a turbo brush?

•Turbo nozzle is airstream powered for bristle brush rotation The above is cut and pasted right from the Home Depot listing of this product. I looked at one in the store and saw no evidence of either an air turbine or rotating bristles. I also doubt they could produce such a brush for $15. Is there really a rotating bristle brush in there? If so is it powered by the airstream?
Asked by: EdPhys
No there is not a rotating brush there are brushes that you can lower and raise and the bottom of the nozzle is very close to the floor so it does have very good suction. on both carpet and hard floors. the brushes do loosen the dust like a duster nozzle it does however cut a 10" path and swivels where the extension tube is so it reaches further while staying flat to the floor more than any other attachment allows when needed to reach under things. it' has a 2 3/4' total height and will reach under anything that high. I also read what you read but it was at the store on the shelf description. I was able to look at it and seen that there was an error either typo or comprehension on my part. I bought it anyway and it was the best 15 bucks spent for vacuuming my shop.

attaching to craftsman shop vac.

1) I have a craftsman 5 H.P. 12 gal. wet/dry shop vac. will your carpet and hard floor nozzle adapt to this. the hose is a 2 1/2 in. 2) I want to purchase your 20' foot hose, again will this adapt and do you know if suction power will be lost due to the length of the hose?
Asked by: RatBuddie
It comes with the adapter so it will fit your craftsman without any further adapter needed. I have several lengths of hose and hook them together. I notice some loss of suction where they are joined together but not enough to loose efficiency. I'm sure that you will loose some suction the longer the hose is. that's physics. probably not enough to matter at 20' I have noticed that the longer the hose the harder the motors seem to work so I always make sure they are not getting to hot.

Will this fit a 1 7/8 hose

Asked by: Jim
You will need an adapter that will go from 1 1/4" to 1 7/8" I know they exist because many of the tools I have are 1 7/8" and I have those adapters.

I own a 5 hp Ridgid shop vac. Model number WD40500. Would the carpet and hard floor nozzle attachment work with this model?

Also, I would like to have an extension part that would make using the vac more easy when in a standing position. Mine just has the hose and one attachement. Are extensions available for my model?
Asked by: Maryellyn
Yes

1-1/4 in. or 2-1/2 in. Carpet and Hard Floor Nozzle Accessory for RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 53.

Works well for sucking up dirt and leaves, not so well on pine needles stuck in the carpet which I didn't expect it to get out. I also used it to suck up sand and dirt from my camper and my boat and it worked very well. Only 2 down sides, one, you must keep the tube at a certain angle for the head to keep suction on the carpet and it doesn't swivel very well (maybe after it wears in some it will). And two, the connector is for a 2-1/2" hose so I had to spend an additional 9 bucks to get the right adapter for the 1-7/8" hose. Over all it does what I wanted it to do on short nap carpet and hard floor making my wet/dry vac more useful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for really nasty carpets. I have used this with my Ridgid WD 1450 for two years. I clean carpets for a living, and have learned the hard way that a residential vacuum cleaner, even the expensive ones, choke and die on really bad carpets. I clean really nasty carpets for an apartment complex; we're talking heavy debris, long hair, pet hair, dried bodily fluids, basically the worst things you can imagine. No traditional vacuum cleaner would be able to hold up for long vacuuming up the junk that this attachment enables you to get. A regular wet dry nozzle (the ones that are usually packed with a WD vac) has way too much suction, but this attachment reduces the amount so it is much easier to maneuver. If it had a turbo brush (air powered) the brush would constantly clog with debris and hairs and need frequent cleaning to work, so in this case no brush is a huge benefit. It cleans well if you take shorter strokes and from multiple directions, this technique will help agitate the carpet as a rotating brush would do on a more traditional vacuum. It works well enough that you can even vacuum really nice carpeting with it, although it requires a lot more effort then most vacuums do. It also has the added benefit of being able to vacuum wet and dry areas with no need to worry about damage to the WD vacuum (remember to remove dry filter for excessively wet areas, I'm talking about damp carpet here). The motor on the WD vac will work harder with this attachment, but you simply need to keep this in mind and lift the nozzle up periodically to allow cooler air to be sucked into the motor...feel the top of the vac to see if it feels too hot once in a while. You'll be impressed with the amount of hair and fine dirt this attachment gets off carpeting, just check in the tank after a few minutes and usually you'll find big wads of nasty stuff. Keep a close eye on your filters as well because the fine silt like dust in most used carpeting goes straight to the filter and adds to the heating up up the motor. I have used this attachment a lot, and it has held up well. The little red strips glued to the bottom that help it grab some debris will wear off pretty quickly, but don't really effect the efficiency of the tool, so that's no big deal. The price for this attachment is incredible considering that it turns a WD vac into a very effective carpet cleaning tool. In truth, I often use this first to get a carpet as clean as I can, and then follow up with a regular household vac. This is because a vac with a beater bar (rotating brushes) can usually remove additional fine dirt from the carpet. In this way the WD vac is protecting the other vacuum from being destroyed by getting the worst of the hairs and other debris, enabling it to work without being damaged. For carpet cleaning a really thorough vacuuming prior to extraction makes a huge difference so this attachment really is a huge help to that end. For what this attachment cost, and the amount of work it does, it is a incredible value. This is added to by the fact that it will save you from ruining a really nice residential vacuum cleaner if you ever need to clean a really dirty rug. If you own a Wet Dry vac, you should own this attachment!

I seen this item while walking down the isle to get to a different section of the store. I have three small vacs in my small shop all hooked up to machinery. when I need to vacuum the floor I just disconnect the hose and hook on a brush or whatever. I would have to get down on my knees to get under my work benches and tool boxes to vac the dust out. with the floor nozzle attachment I don't have to do that anymore because it swivels where the extension tube hooks up and this allows it to get clear under everywhere while I can remain standing. I have everything in my shop elevated because every once in a while I like to power wash the floor. I also thought it was a bargain at the price.
