Can I use this shop vacuum for wall dust collecting while drywall sanding?

This question is from Store-N-Go 5 gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac
Asked by
San Diego

November 12, 2014
We are modeling the house. In order to prep the walls, we were thinking about sanding them, but don’t want dust in the house. Found a really nice dustless tool with great reviews, which, in addition, need shop vacuum to collect the dust. We went over bunch of shop vacuums, and by far liked this one the most. The only drawback is that in one of your responses you mentioned dust bags cannot be used with it. Does this mean I cannot use it for our intended purpose (collect wall dust)? Where and how is dust collected? If this model is not intended for this kind of usage, can you please suggest the one that is (we prefer smaller ones)?

Answer: 
I do drywall repairs and its not worth it to use these. Rent the professional sander with vacuum attached. Its the best for drywall dust, uses a bag and way less effort than fighting with this. The dust eventually ruins the motor on this too.

Answer: 
I would suggest using a cyclone separator system for that, otherwise the pleated filter will clog up fast and put a strain on the motor. Recommend the Onieda Dust Deputy product. It will remove about 90 percent of the particles prior to reaching the vac inlet.

Answer: 
Yes, but you might want to get a filter that catches finer particles than the standard filter. They're available at HD.

Answer: 
Hi Lggr,
You may use this Ridgid vac for the drywall dust, however you must use the Ridgid Fine Dust 3-Layer Pleated Paper Filter.
This filter will prevent the dust from accumulating in the
motor and causing it to overheat and burn out.

I see on the other Rigid shop vacs a chart showing a scale 1-10 suction rating & how loud it is. Is there one for this?

Answer: 
I have 2 additional wet / dry vacuum's, and the noise level of this vacuum is about the same level as the other 2 I own. Perhaps it may be slightly lower based upon the fact it has a baffle with a filter on it for the exhaust, but any noise decrease was not really noticeable.
I feel the noise is a trade-off due to the fact that with this vacuum being mounted on the wall, it affords much more flexibility

I can't offer any decibel numbers, other than the comparison's I mentioned.
Overall, I am very happy with this vacuum.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 182 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good garage vac Got this to mount on the wall in my 2 car garage and use on the cars and floor. Have been using it for about a month now and love it. Minimal assembly, easy to mount, and has a place for all accessories. I had been looking for wall mounted vacs for several months and this was the best value out there. Would buy it again. June 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wall mount vac needs work I love that this is a wall mounted vacuum but the hose size it small. Uses 1-¾" instead of the more common 2-½" shop vac hoses. The smaller size is great for tasks like vacuuming out your car but the unit is to big and bulky to carry around one's car. It's best to just leave it hung on the wall but in doing so it's use is pretty limited. All in all a nice unit but I think they either need to beef up the motor a bit to support 2-½" hose and longer hose runs or shrink the vacuum down so you can carry it easily and dock it on the wall when finished. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND READY TO USE IN 2 MINUTES! WOULD RECOMMEND TO A FRIEND October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient and versatile This vac was just as described easy to hang and ready to go quickly. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garage vac Great Wall mounted vac for garage/workshop. Nice long hose to reach out around work while unit still in cradle. Decent suction for dust and debris. Like how all attachments mount to vac housing and has storage rack for vac hose. Happy with the purchase. Was able to mount to in space over my air compressor, really works well for space saving and usefulness. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Handy Vac Works great in the garage for keeping the car neat and tidy. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Vac Really Nice Vac. Love that i can hang it up on the wall and out of the way. I hung mine near my table saw and miter saw so it can be used for dust collection while still on hanging on the wall in the Man Cave. The Vac harness is a bit flimsy but strong enough for the Vac. If you can catch this on sell its a great value. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great shop vac will buy another for second garage Love how it mounts up out of the way. It is great and will buy a second one for another garage. October 11, 2016
