Questions & Answers

Is this vaccuum powerful enough to suck water from window well?

Asked by: Trish
yes
Answered by: Cutworm

Duty Cycle

What is the duty cycle of this unit? I need to leave it on for hours at a time to clean up my CNC table as it cuts.
Asked by: alf2005
There isn't a duty cycle rating that I'm aware of but the Ridgid vacs run at a lower rpm than others and should run several hours with no problems. You may need to replace motor brushes occasionally.

I find the paper filter cartridge clogs quickly when vacuuming up MDF dust. Is there a pre-filter available?

Asked by: lathedog
I give mine a thump on the top when I turn it off to knock the dust from the filter. I have also used a piece of old panty hose as a prefilter.

Does the blower acc. work well enough to be used for general purposes?if so what is the CFM Amperage?

Asked by: Jolt
It does work as a blower for "regular" applications like dry leaves, dust, lite dirt, etc...

I bought one and within 4 months it just stopped working I was in the middle of a job so I went and bought another of the same one and 5 months it just shut off like I turned it off, It worked well when it ran they both still look brand new. To bad they are made like garbage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. My review is for the 12-gallon vac without the attached blower. The vacuum works very well. With the addition of a dust catch bag and smooth floor brush, cleaning up after multiple days of work on drywall/sanding was a breeze. I never noticed any dust in the air after vacuuming, which was of highest importance since we were living in the house while the drywall work and finishing was being done. The dust bag was the key, I believe. Good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This thing is beast! I had recently bought a new house and had projects to do and the Rigid is one of the best purchases I've made; I mean let's face it, it's no 3 wolves howling at the moon t-shirt, but it's right up there! I use it all time on small projects, or even to vacuum the tile floors and or car. I recently used it when cutting out a hole in the ceiling to install a fan, the hose and extender attachments had no problem reaching a vaulted ceiling. It picks up everything! I haven't seen the cat in over a week now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More powerful than I thought The 12 gallon Wet/ Dry Vac is more powerful than I thought. I thought Prime Shine Car Wash has the most powerful Vacuum I ever used until I bought the Ridgid Wet/Dry Vac. I drag dirt and sand into my pickup everyday as I visit my farming customers which is why I bought the Wet / Dry Vac - to clean it out every day after I get home. I couldn't be more pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More pluses than minuses More powerful and quieter than the ShopVac I had. Assembly not quite as described, I had to use a piece of wood and hammer to seat the wheels. Had a problem finding the on-off switch. I like the longer cord and larger hose. Would be nice if it came with a collection bag. Most frustrating thing is trying to register it!! Still trying.

Best vac Ridgid makes. 12ga size is plenty of size for any clean up but also compact enough to easily pack up for transportation. 5.0 has plenty of power and detachable blower is extremely useful. Best feature is the power cord. They made it long enough so that I rarely need an extension cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum for a variety of tasks in the garage... Great vacuum for a variety of tasks in the garage and tool shed. It has power to pick up many types of debris and the power unit can be detached from the canister and used as a blower. It has a long cord so you don't have to use an extension cord as often. Very handy tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The powerful vac I was looking for!! Excellent vacuum. Love the larger hose, which makes cleaning up debris a piece of cake. I tried a smaller one but it simply didn't work. This is worth every extra dollar. Would be nice if came with the little circle brush, but I purchased it separately
