The RIDGID 6 Gal. High Performance Wet/Dry Vacuum is designed for DIYers who want a traditionally styled, compact Vacuum that delivers the powerful performance and rugged durability required for job site clean-up. This vacuum has a 6 Gal. drum size that results in a more compact design that requires less storage space on a service truck or in a work shop or garage.

  • 3.5 peak HP provides powerful suction for everyday cleanup
  • Compact design and 4 swivel casters offer great maneuverability
  • 7 ft. tug-a-long hose features a positive locking connection that resists breaking free from the vacuum during use

  • Peak Horsepower represents a level at or below the maximum horsepower output of an electric motor tested in a laboratory using a dynamometer

I have an uneven stepping stone/river rock path that is too difficult to sweep or rake. Can this vacuum pick up acorns? Should I remove the bag and filter for this type of job? Thanks!

Yes, it will. Just use the regular filter and any attachment. This thing really sucks and in this case that is a good thing.

Answer: 
I don't have acorns here in Montana but I'm certain it would have no trouble at all picking them up! I have been picking up small pieces of carpet, padding, molding, hardware etc. with ease as we are in the midst of a home remodel and it's been wonderful so far!!!

Answer: 
Yes. Grasp the ears on the element with your finger tips and pull the filter off the white center stud. The end cap of the element is soft foam rubber and the hole in it stretches over the white center stud to hold the element in place.

Answer: 
They snap in and are supposed to be somewhat loose. They are looser than I would like but seem to stay in so far. But once you or someone loses a caster it gets tipsy. I am returning mine due to not enough power for what I need it for.

Thank you for contacting RIDGID® Customer Support.
The caster should snap in to the socket of the caster foot.
Below is the instruction if still doesn’t work on your end.
On the bottom of the caddy, there are two holes. This is where the wheels should go into. I suggest you try to assemble the caster to the caddy first before attaching the foot to the bottom of the drum. This would allow you to apply more pressure when pressing it together. You need to insert the metal stem of caster wheel into the center hole and push on it until it snaps all the way inside the socket. You will hear a popping sound as a sign that the caster is already locked in place. You can also use a rubber mallet to assemble the caster to the foot.
If 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.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 338 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by My canister cracked I contacted the poor customer support for warranty issues the warranty was declined "for not been a manufacturer defect" I'll recommend you not to buy this vacuum and buy something better Do not buy this vacuum!! October 27, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Returning for more power Our old shop vac died after 15 years, so we bought this one. Our needs are simple. Good suction, no water. and a small container. This is just for our personal use around the house, garage, cars, etc. Not for work. The suction of this unit was a disappointment. Just doesn't pull enough air. Have to go back and forth over the same areas and even then it doesn't pull crud out of the crevices the way our old unit did. We were hoping we could save a few dollars with this unit but have decided we have to step up to a stronger motor. For anyone who doesn't need a strong pull, it could well be fine. October 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good No complaint other than blower port could be at better locatio October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ridgid vac 1 rigid wet dry vacuum it was ok we need a few more suction head October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed I purchased the shop vac.because it was time to take down the pool.Last year it was back breaking to get all the water out.So I decided on using the shop vac.and it made my job a lot easier.And the pool was a lot cleaning when I was done. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by can't complain I was perfect..... I should have bought a bigger one for the job, but it worked perfectly October 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by classic cost cutting that ruins otherwise good design. This is poorly designed compared to,the bigger models. There is no screw on nylon nut to hold the filter. Just a post to push the filter over. I crushed the filter trying to push a new one on, Also destoyed the post thinking it was a nut. My bad for not reading the instructions. But still it's classic cost cutting to save a few cents by not having to,provide a nylon nut. October 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Average power, no crevice tool This vac seems to work ok on most jobs, but it seemed like my old ShopVac that was the same size had much more power. I like the extension for the hose, but it doesn't include a crevice tool. Also the wide tool has raised edges so it doesn't do very well on a hard surface. I would have been better spending a little more on a better vac that has more power and better accessories. September 29, 2016
