Does the vacuum REQUIRE a filter if I want to suck water out of a clogged dishwasher hose/drain and then just dump it out? No debris, per se, just a little water.
Asked by: Curious
Just wanted to say the wet filter model number is VF7000 according to a sticker on my HD12000. Below DH specifies VF2001, which is much cheaper, but listed as for Genie and Shop Vac brands. Maybe the VF2001 is an acceptable alternative for this vac, I don't know.

is this shop vac loud

Asked by: bob
Hello bob, This vac is not as loud as the other vacs in the market. The noise rating is only 78 decibels. Not to mention it has the Scroll Noise reduction feature and and a sound dampening foam in the powerhead to reduce the noise. Thanks for asking! If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'd be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

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.

12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP NXT Wet/Dry Vac with Premium Auto Detail Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 198.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I can't believe this is considered a "Pro" shop vac. This is my first Rigid vacuum and I only bou... I can't believe this is considered a "Pro" shop vac. 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 needed a reasonably priced shop vac with disposable bag to deal with plaster dust. The vacuum has worked well for that. The dust bags are not included but are available at the local H.D. store. Some assembly is required but is very easy. The instructions do not mention screwing the legs to the base, but the screws are included and should probably be used there.

The amount of vacuum it pulls is surprising. I did not expect it to pull that well. In spite of my abuse the unit endured what I could dish out.
