Is the blower detachable in this unit?

Asked by RD October 20, 2020
3
Answers

Dear RD, Thank you for your question! No, the blower on this unit is not detachable/removable, the blower port is built-in to the lid and it is located at the back side of the unit. To make it work, you will need to attach the hose on the blower port located at the back side of the lid near the cord entry, plug the unit and turn it on. Our vacs with detachable leaf blower feature are WD4080, HD1280, and HD1600. If you have questions or concerns on any of these, 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.

Can I hook this up to a sander or a table saw?

You can hook this up to a saw or sander provided they have an exhaust or dust port. I hook mine up to a Wen bandsaw & a Ryobi belt-sander depending upon which machine I'm using. The hose fits the native port size for both machines,

Response from RIDGIDSeptember 21, 2020
Hello Mikem65D, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. This HD1400 product we are selling presently comes with the standard white filter, VF4000. This is a temporary component change due to COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) mask support. We are temporarily replacing the 3-Layer filter (VF5000) component. Due to raw materials that are normally used in our production of the 3-Layer Fine Dust filter component (VF5000) being redirected for PPE mask manufacturing support, we are unable to provide the filter previously included with this product. We are providing customers with a 1-Layer Filter (VF4000) component and a dust collection bag. Please note the dust collection bag was not typically included with this purchase. If you have questions, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

Awesome when paired to the Dustopper
Super powerfull shop vac! Great quality. If you get this or have it yoy need to pair it with the Dustopper! You’ll never have to buy amother filter. You can make your own mounting solution with some PVC and a scrap piece of plywood. I also paired this with the Ridgid water pump accessory

I purchased this vacuum mainly for use in my small shop. It is inline with the "Duststopper" that is available at HD. They both are connected to my DeWalt table saw. With the convenience of the long 2 1/2 diameter hose I can easily disconnect it from the saw and attach to my router table or planer. This really keeps the dust and debris down.

We love Ridgid equipment, and this vacuum is no exception. It has great suction power, was easy to put together (just attaching the casters, hoses, etc), and has worked great so far. We have only had it a few weeks, but it is easy to use and clean. I like all the attachments that it comes with, and that they can all be stored on it. We previously had a craftsman vacuum and this has blown it out of the water in terms of section power, attachments, and ease of carrying/wheeling. I bought this for my husband for his birthday, but my 2.5 yo thinks it was for him and asks me everyday if we can vacuum the cars or "use the shopvac".

This thing is amazing.
I got this shop vac to use for numerous projects. The day I got it I had it set up and ready to go within a few minutes. I first used it to vacuum out my car and it was the cleanest the cars interior and floor has ever been. I went to vacuum the floor mat and this thing picked up the floor mat off the ground it sucks to hard. I also just recently used it to clean out a clogged drain pipe that goes to the sewer with the extra long hose attachment I purchased separately.

Upgraded my shop vac from a small generic 2HP 5gal one to this. I also purchased the Dustopper dust separator set up to go along with this shop vac. So far this shop vac works great, the locking attachments are a good feature to keep from losing an attachment while you're working.
