      Q:Does this hose have the same stiffness as the original hose?
      by|Feb 19, 2024

      Answer This Question

      A:  Have no idea if your original hose is flexible or not. But this hose is quite stiff and seems like a cheaply made knock-off.

        A:  I just upgraded from the original hose and love this one. Much better feel and more flexible. However, I've had difficulty with some of the attachments not fitting securely. E.G. - the hose to hose connector is loose and disconnects from time to time.

            Works on my old wall mount craftsman
            It looked like it was the right size and had the same connections. It does!! I bought two so I would have 28 feet of hose to reach everywhere in n my work space. Its is a much needed upgrade from my 20 year old cracked and duct taped hose :)

              Great for my DIY dust collection. Expanding hose is better as it doesn't get in the way.

              The rubber connector broke after a few uses. No replacement part available. Rigid customer service told me to order from home depot. They don't have it.

              Hello Terryjean1234

              Thanks for writing a review and we apologize for the inconvenience. It is true that the expansion cuff is not a regular item at Home Depot stores. The expansion cuff (part number 831330) can be special ordered at the Home Depot store pro desk or special orders desk. If you have other questions, please call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email with pictures at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

                not durable but performs well
                It's a nicer hose than the default but it broke quickly at where it was connected to the included adapter. I am very disappointed.

                    Much better than stock hose
                    This hose is far superior to the stiff plastic one that came with my vacuum. I would have liked to given it a 5 star review. But a couple of aggravating things kept me from doing that. 1. I have a Ridgid WD12450 vacuum. The text states that the hose fits all Ridgid 2-1/2" configurations and includes adapters to fit. After scratching my head for a while, I figured out that the furnished adapters will not fit my vacuum. My vacuum inlet measures 2-11/16" ID and the included adapters are 2-1/4" OD. BUT, I can take the adapter off my old hose and the new hose will fit onto it. Why not a statement on the web page or in the instructions that it "may be necessary to use your old adapters in some cases"? Save a lot of time. 2. The hose is advertised as being 10 feet long. It is exactly 9 feet. With the adapter cuffs, it measures 9' 4-1/2" long. Somewhere a foot of hose is missing.

                      Just like a Car Wash Vacuum Hose
                      I am very happy and satisfied with this pro hose. Perfect for car cleaning and love the orange color and fit like a champ on my RIDGID WD12450 vac from back in 2005 and with everything in tact due to light car cleaning usage along with my newer RIDGID WD1270 vac. Only issue is that it make a really high pitch noise when the vacuum is on and it hurt my ears. I would love to know a solution to fix this issue but other than that it is well built and durable.

                        THIS DOES NOT FIT MY RIGID SHOP VAC, WHY WOULD THAT BE?!?!?!?
                        I do not usually make negative reviews, but this experience has been particularly frustrating. Rigid does not make it easy to find fittings for the older devices (not really that old at 6 years or so), and I suspect they just hope we will buy the new shop vac despite the fact that the older one works fine. If you stand by your product's quality then make sure those of us who take care of it and use it for longer periods can get fittings to match your new unit hose sizes. My next shop vac will NOT be a Rigid product unless this is resolved promptly.

                        Hi Chris! Thanks for the time to write us a review and we're sorry to hear about this. The 1-7/8 in x 7 ft. Dual-Flex Tug-A-Long Locking Vacuum Hose (VT1720) is made to fit most RIDGID wet/dry vacuums, but optimal with smaller RIDGID wet/dry vacs 9 Gal. or smaller. Older vacuum models might need to use a different adapter to be able to use the hose. Please call our customer service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you. Kindly provide the model and serial number of your vacuum when you call. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

                          Compared to the original cheap plastic hose that originally came with it, this is a tremendous improvement. More importantly, this one doesn't crease, which use to affect suction.
