Questions & Answers

Do the casters lock so this vacuum won’t roll away on a slope?

Asked by: Jmstuff
No, but in my experience even the largest wet/dry vacuums lack a locking caster assembly.

How do you put the feet on?

The “holes” have pegs on them, and they don’t come off.

Can this be used without a bag?
Asked by: Jim
Hello Jim, Yes filter bags are optional for RIDGID wet/dry vacs. However, they are highly beneficial especially if you're picking up a lot of debris. Note that filter bags help with easy disposal of debris and they extend the life of the pleated paper filters. If you have further questions, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com. Thanks, RIDGID

12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP NXT Wet/Dry Vac is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 153.

This is my first Rigid vacuum and I only bought it because I couldn't find a single shop vac that was even halfway decent. At least this one came with a few attachments and the 2 1/2" hose. The smaller hoses are useless but now almost every shop vac comes with a tiny 1 7/8" or even a utterly ridiculous 1 1/4" hose. I used to go with Craftsman but they're quality is garbage now too. Like everything now a days the word quality has little meaning to any manufacturer. Once you unbox this unit it gives off the impression of only "how cheap can we make it before people won't buy it"? The entire vacuum and hose are made of thin plastic that you can feel flexing. The hose is so cheap you can collapse it just by squeezing it and where it joins the end piece that attaches to the vacuum it looks and feels like it'll start leaking anytime. Its laughable when you read the website description and then actually see the Rigid line of shop vacs in person at the store.

The unit is of sturdy construction, but I have not owned it for enough time to offer any other opinion on its dependability or durability. I awarded the vacuum with three stars because of Rigid’s failure to provide any means of dampening or redirecting the substantially powerful exhaust stream emitted from the back of the unit. Other manufacturers provide some type of cap or diverter so that the exhaust won’t stir up any dust/debris on the ground behind the vacuum. The cap/diverter also serves to limit the excessive noise that results from the unrestrained stream. Rigid sells an optional “muffler” attachment for this unit at a cost of about $10, said muffler being nothing but the exhaust diverter which should have been included with the machine. I purchased ShopVac products for years because of their dependability and sturdy build. Unfortunately ShopVac no longer sells products with the solid construction offered by the Rigid line.

I ran down and bought this and it sucked up 50 plus gallons of water through carpet with no issues. It's powerful and didn't over heat and I used it for over 4 hours without turning it off. Highly recommend.

I’m not sorry. It is everything people said about it- not too heavy, easy to assemble, good selection of tools, easy to move around and excellent pickup. Delivered to my door in 1 day!

Remember that the intake and output must be opposite when clamping the lid in place, and you’re golden. It Saved my basement. It was able to keep up as the water flowed in and I feel like I beat the elements this time. Highly-recommended product.

Where my older lesser powered vacuum struggled, this Rigid 5HP has no issues. The hose is a large enough diameter that it is not easily clogged. While it is still is loud, but not ear piercing like the smaller “stinger” I had originally.
