In what country is Ridgid shop vac made?

Asked by: sheshe
The box states that it's made in Mexico. Their main office is in St. Louis, MO but this does have a lifetime warranty so that should ease your mind a bit.

Compatible w/ Dust Collection Bag?

Is this model compatible with any dust collection bags? A previous question on the subject was answered by Ridgid, saying this model is not compatible with such bags. But I see on the Home Depot page for the WD5500, in the graphic below the "Product Overview" an indication that it's compatible with dust collection bag VF3501. Further, on the Home Depot page for the WD5500A #same model but with an additional nozzle#, the same graphic indicates that it's compatible with VF3502 and VF3503. What is realistic here? Might the bag compatibility be something new, more recent than the previous response?
Asked by: Bill
Thank you for contacting RIDGID® Customer Support. We apologize for the confusion but the WD5500 is not recommended to use a dust collection bag. The size and shape of the drum will not have enough space to allow the dust collection bag to expand when collecting debris. 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. Regards, RIDGID

Stor-N-Go 5 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 199.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good space saving shop vacuum This vacuum replaced a 15-18 year old larger vac on wheels. The wall mount really opens up the garage. Dismounted, it easily moves where it is needed. Great product!
Date published: 2016-08-31
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

This is a follow up to my previous review where I had given the Stor N Go a 2 star rating because of a very loud screech/howl the unit made. Ridgid sent me a 2" diameter hose which corrected the problem. Great customer support, and great unit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Shop Vac Bought this mainly to keep my garage clean. It is compact, mounts nicely on the wall, and is easy to take on and off. The vac has a fairly powerful "blower' option that creates shock and awe with spiders hiding in corners.

I got that in my Stor-N-Go Wet Dry Vac. My old shop vac was had 16 gallon capacity so it was quit large and I needed to store it in a closet in my garage because I had no room to keep it out. With the Stor-N-Go it hangs on the wall and is ready to use. If I need to us it in the house I just push one tab and it lifts off the wall and I can take it anywhere. Now I'm not going to say it's as powerful as my old 16 gallon but it has more than enough power to clean up after a project and clean my work bench area. I've been very happy with this vac.

Plenty of power and the extended length of the hose is perfect. That said, the unit I received unleashes the loudest howl/screech noise I've ever heard. It's so loud that the unit is unusable. I've contacted Ridgid customer support, and they provided a new length of hose. Unfortunately the new hose made the exact same howl/screech noise as the original. I contacted Ridgid support again, and this time they are going to send me a 2" hose with the necessary adapter to fit the attachments that came with the Stor N Go. This hose has not arrived as of this writing. I will try to update when I receive the larger hose. I'm giving 2 stars at this point because of the above situation. Hopefully the 2" hose remedies the issue.

Having the essential shop vacuum off the floor is ideal. The Rigid vacuum has sufficient power to suit my needs and the quality of its constructionot seems very good. If I had to find fault with anything, I would have say that the extension hoses are a bit stiff and clumsy to handle. This , however, is only a minor problem and would not prevent me from recommending the vacuum.
