  • Bonus 20 ft. Hose provides extended reach and adapts to most vacs
  • Features the RIDGID lifetime warranty
The RIDGID 12 gallon high performance wet dry vac is designed for Pros and DIYers who want a traditionally styled, medium sized vacuum that delivers the powerful performance and rugged durability required for jobsite clean-up. Its 5.0 peak horsepower motor delivers the suction power necessary to handle tough clean-ups. The bonus 20 ft. Locking Hose contains all the great features of our standard replacement hose, but at 20 ft. in length, it is nearly 3 times as long as a standard RIDGID vac hose. Included adaptors connect the 20 ft. Locking Hose to fit any RIDGID vacuum and the locking tab on the hose cuff provides a secure connection to the vac. This RIDGID vac's 12 gallon drum size results in a more compact design that requires less storage space on a service truck, in the shop, or in the garage but still offers the capacity to handle large messes. Replacement filter VF4000 and replacement dust bag VF3502, both sold separately.

Can this be used to vacuum a pellet stove?

Asked by: Cindy
I use a 16 gal. Rigid vac to clean my pellet stove at the end of every season. Rigid makes a good shop vac. The model of Rigid vac does not matter. It is the type of filter used that matters. I use the VF5000 filter in addition to a vacuum bag. The bag stops most of cold ash and the filter gets the rest. I dispose of the bag after ash collection and use a new bag for all regular use. This allows much longer life for the expensive filters.

For dry vacuuming, when do I use a vacuum bag vs a filter? Do you ever use a vacuum & a filter at the same time?

The instruction manual says nothing about using vacuum bags yet there are bags for it.

12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet/Dry Vac with 20 ft. Tug-A-Long Hose is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1036.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The power of this vac is pretty good. It works really good and the attachments work as expected. ... The power of this vac is pretty good. It works really good and the attachments work as expected. All the attachments fit tight and there is a home for everyone one of them which makes it easy to move it around. For some reason the motor (gray part) does not fit snug against the drain bucket. The clamps do not "snap" tight on the bucket. I purchased a bigger vac last week and it had a lot of play in it. I returned it to exchange for another and the second one was worse. No one at the store had an answer for the gap. If you pick up the vac and move it and bump it just right, it gets loose and separates. So i decided to get a cheaper, smaller vac. Same thing but the clamps on this one are worse. The gap is still there and I think its even bigger than the other vac. Now, when you turn on the vac, the motor, gets sucked down to the bucket and cant be separated and does not cause any operational issues at all. other vacs that I have had in the past clamp down good, with very little play between the 2 parts. ** Nice Tumbler**

I saw instant increase in both length, and girth. I used the product daily until I no longer fit the nasal. I really wish they sold an adapter kit so I get more gains. I recommend this product to all my friends, family, and my church members. Try it for yourself.
