Customer Questions & Answers

I am in dog rescue and currently have nine dogs in my house, my fellow rescue folks are telling me to get a shop vac because the suction is so good

and their isn't a vacuum cleaner out there that really does the job of collecting all the hair and dander. Any thoughts on using a shop vac for this purpose ?? I try to keep a really clean house but vacuum cleaners, pet dyson and shark just aren't doing a good job.
Asked by: claudia
Off hard wood floors, yes; for carpets, though, you'll want a good, brushed vac.

Does anyone know if the flex hose and the hepa bags from Dustless Technologies fit on the Ridgid model # wd1451 14 gallon wet / dry vac ? I am hoping they will as I just ordered them on line.

what is the difference between assembled width and product width ,depth, and height ?

Asked by: boomer
Very minimal, assembly only requires adding the wheels on the bottom raising it around 1.5 inches. Width you can add around 2 inches with the accessory holder attached.

Has anyone used this to vacuum fiberglass as you cut it???
Asked by: julybaby13
Hi, have not used specifically for fiberglass but I would not hesitate doing so. I would recommend keeping the filter in place and also installing a paper bag for added protection. I always keep both the filter and a paper bag in place as it makes cleanup much easier.

Is there a noticable suction loss when using the filter collection bag?

Asked by: BV3905
No it seems to work the same with or without the filter collection bag. I prefer to use a collection bag for all dry vacuuming.

Is this vacuum extremely loud with the 1-1/4" hose attached?

One of the reviewers complained that this vacuum is extremely loud when he uses it with the 1-1/4" hose. How much louder is it compared to the 2-1/2" hose? How many decibels for each hose?
Asked by: wdwkr
It is slightly louder with the 1-1/4" hose compared to the 2-1/2" hose. But it is still quieter than most other wet/dry vacs and the 1-1/4" hose is so much better to use for lighter duty jobs.

Is this vacuum comes with all attachments? 2. Can we Do carpet wash? 3. Is there any cordless function in it?

Asked by: Ahmed
Comes with all the attachments in the photo. No you can't use it to wash carpets, it's a vacuum, not a shampoo machine. No there are no cordless functions with this product, it comes with a fairly long cord.

14 gal. 6.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac with Auto Detail Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 802.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value and performance We were replacing our old shop vac that cost almost $300 and broke after years of service. This one out performs it for a third of the price. Tool storage handy and not as tippy as our old one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs many more features Purchased this to be used wet in my detail bay. Not yet completed. The dry portion has plenty of power but I wish you would have options for full power or half power as it is very challenging to pick up on a large rubber mat while using the accessories. The unit becomes very difficult to maneuver on a ergo mat. Way to much suction for a large rubber 4 x 8 ergo mat. On the floor another story. its pretty darn good.We will see in about two weeks once I get a water reclamation mat. Also if you had a telescoping hose that would allow one to go from the present dia to lets say 1" or 1.5 with the proper smaller accessories for cleaning your vehicle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wet Dry Vac This powerful Wet Dry Vac made cleaning my extremely dirty basement a breeze! I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful yet Quiet This is exactly what I was looking for: lots of suction yet quiet motor. It comes with lots of accessories which will normally cost 30 or 40 dollars (although charging so much for a piece of plastic is really not fair). It is really well made, looks nice too. Sturdy, wont trip over. However, the filter will clog quickly lowering the sucking power. There is a solution though. I highly recommend using dust separator if you are using your vac for woodworking workshop. When it was brand new I used it once for carpets in my house but it wanted to remove the carpet together with a dust from my floor. It is really the most powerful vac I tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Vac This is an outstanding shop vac and the auto detail kit offers even more functionality. I am impressed with the quality of design and the onboard tool & cord storage system. I really like the way the filter attaches...very easy to remove and install after cleaning. This vac has excellent suction. The noise level is similar to any other shop vac I have used. By their nature, shop vacs are not quiet and the sound level of this Ridgid vac is completely acceptable. If you are looking for a fairly compact vac, with outstanding performance and versatility, this is certainly worth considering. Also, a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected This thing is awesome. It is powerful and does the job. I love the onboard attachment center. My first job with this shop vac was used as a dust collection system. I ran it constantly for 2 hrs with the hose up against my wood CNC. There was hardly a spec of sawdust anywhere. I know this product isn't meant to run constantly like that but it performed perfectly. I don't need to push it like that again but was happy to know it is a RIDGID. I love this brand and rely on the brand for many other tools I own. My table saw, my cordless impact and drill set, and my miter saw. I will stick with RIDGID.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with purchase I am really happy with this purchase. I own other Rigid tools and have had good succes with them and thought I would try this shopvac. It is well built. I like the fact that all the tools store right on the shopvac neatly, including the hose. So your not looking all over the shop for the patrts when you need them. I was also surprised as to how quite it is compared to other shopvacs I have used. The fact that this unit came with the auto detail kit was also a plus. The extra long hose makes it easy to reach inside the vehicles to clean them. I also use this in my shop as a dust collection system, It hooks right up to the router table, mitre saw, and table saw. It performs very well for what I use it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shop vac for a woodworker This shop vac was the best one for me to use in my shop. I have been able to hook this directly up to my 10" dewalt rolling table saw as a dust collection system along with my rigid 12" sliding miter saw without any other attachments. Most reviews knock rigid for not having the correct size hose to hook up directly to dust ports. The only tool so far that I've experienced needing a attachment was my dewalt planner. This vac is quiet and very powerful. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the wheels on the vacuum, they seem to get stuck a lot.
