Answer: 
Thank you for contacting RIDGID® Customer Support.
We do not know if this will fit but if the vacuum’s inlet has an inside diameter of 2-1/4” thus this hose will fit. I hope this meets your needs.
If you should you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to info@ridgidvacs.com.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The product worked as advertised. The hose replaces a vacuum home that had a cut. It worked as advertised. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Much improved over the stock hose packed with the vacuum cleaner. However, the length could be expanded. This product should replace the standard hose that is packed with the vacuum cleaner. The 'stock' hose recently split and broke off at the nozzle due to the brittle nature of the material. Now I have a vacuum cleaner that is virtually worthless for operating in a standing position. The new expandable hose is not long enough. What a shame. Great vacuum cleaner equipped with a worthless hose . . . with a replacement part that isn't long enough to use in a standing position. October 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This works very well This is much easier than moving the ladder and are unable to walk up there if you have a steep pitch roof, or are afraid of heights. I am going to obtain extra straight pieces to be able to reach the gutter from the ground because otherwise it is necessary to bungie cord the shop vac to a step ladder. Goggles are recommended because the debris and water really fly out of there, and it only works on blow. The pieces must be firmly forced together so they don't blow apart and this works best with a cleaned vacuum filter for maximum pressure, but the bottom line is that it works very well. November 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compact and smart product Super compact hose. Great value. This hose really makes sense for storing into tight spaces and completely stretches out to complete the job. The only improvement needed is having swivel points on both ends so it cane maneuver better. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by the best additional expandable hose extention! the hose is easier to use it's flexible and expandable! January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by finally available I checked before and these OEM hoses were not available. Glad to be able to get one as my Ridgid vacuum is still going strong but the hose connector is wore out and doesn't stay connected to the vacuum very well. May 27, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ends do not swivel independant of hose this hose twists up while in use because the ends to do swivel independent of hose like the original does. Also wish the hose was longer. the coil effect is too strong and actually pulls the vacuum closer that one would want it. i still recommend it though because anything is better than the one the vacuum comes with. October 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a good vacume hose This is a good vacume hose and what the original vacume should have had. This should have come with the Ridgid vacume in the first place rather than the piece of junk thart did. January 1, 2013
