Does this work well for dust collection on the 13inch Ridgid Planer?

Asked by Rid123 October 27, 2020
2
Answers

Hello Rid123, Thank you for your interest in our products. We're sorry we can't guarantee it will work with Ridgid planer as not all vacs have the connector available. Additionally, it would be difficult to confirm without knowing the size of the dust port of your planer. We've heard some success stories on the connection of our vacuums with some RIDGID power tools. You might also want to check out our VT1407 power tool adapter that can be hooked up to our vacs with 2-1/2" hoses and connects to certain sizes of power tool. The adapter can be trimmed off depending on the size of the dust port. If you have further questions, 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.

How do you get it to suck and not blow?

Asked by Pete October 18, 2020
3
Answers

Sounds like the container to motor seal is not properly engaged. I have found it doesn't always go back together properly when you take the motor off, so check that. Other than that, there could be a defective blower housing of other defect. If you have much more outlet air than inlet air, you have a leak somewhere. If both are reduced, then the filter/bag/hose is clogged.

Great Wet/dry vac all around!! The cord coming in at 20 feet was a huge plus as it stores away with a breeze. Storage mount for all the attachments is adequate and the hose tucks away cleanly. I blower is strong for what it is and happy with the suction power of the 6.5 motor. The Model # HD1600 comes with multiple attachments but I also purchased the Premium Car Cleaning Accessory Kit because I recently got a new truck and it is helping me keep it clean! The attachments hooked right up the existing hoses that added some extra length to the hose with no loss of suction. It is a great add-on for this unit if you are into detailing your vehicle as it the vacuum moves freely with 360° movement. I am very happy with this shop vac and would recommend it to friends.

Powerful Shop Vacuum
Just picked it up on 4/6/20 and so far it's a great shop vac. Lots of power and the detachable leaf blower is impressive. The power cord is nice and long. Assembly was easy. I coupled this vac with a Dustopper Dust collector, also from Home Depot. These 2 products work surprisingly well together. The Dustopper's 5 gallon bucket was chucked full but the Rigid Shop Vac canister only contained a very minimal amount of dust. Hopefully, this will relieve the stress on the Shop Vac motor when I use it as a dust collector on my table saw, router table, jointer and sanders. The only con so far is the attachment holder doesn't stay in place very well.

Great vac. Quieter than previous one. Amazing power. Use as central vac. Replace older Rigid due to slight over heating odor after more than four years use as central vac. New vac has more power and less noise. This is our sixth Rigid shop vac. All perform well. Inlet allowing disposable bags use makes emptying quick easy and hardly any mess. Very satisfied.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I have been impressed with this shop/vac. I have used it to vacuum the car, the house and odd spots on the outside of the house. For the car, the attachments did a good job of getting into all the cracks as well as the main body of the carpet. For the house, it was the same. Where I have found this really useful is vacuuming out the vents and drains on the outside of the house. It gets all the leaves, rocks and debris which keeps the vents and drains open. For the blower part, this works well, I have a gas blower and so I can’t see using the blower of the shop vac but for someone without a separate blower, this would be a good option. It comes with a lot of attachments and extra bags. It seems like a good product for a good value. The cord is long, and the vacuum is powerful. The only drawback I see is choosing which attachment to use (which isn’t really a drawback). The attachments all fit on the caddie somewhere which is convenient.

(What's this)
Holy overachieving shop vacs! I'm impressed! This RIDGID NXT (model HD1260) 12 gallon, 6.0 peak HP, wet/dry vac with detachable blower came with nearly everything I needed to get to work. Sure there are a few extras I want to get, for example, a muffler/diffuser, but the accessories required for general use are all included. In true RIDGID fashion, all the hoses and nozzles lock together so nothing pops apart while vacuuming. For our basement 12 gallons was just the right size, and 6-peak HP is a lot of suction! I’m also really pleased with storage on the vac, which was well thought out. Between the powerhead’s chord storage, the accessory caddy, and storage on the casters, everything can be neatly organized. And there’s still one spot left for another accessory nozzle. While the 20’ power cable, which is likely added for purposes of the blower, is still too short to blow our entire patio clean, it’s an added benefit to the shop vac... it’s like having a built in extension chord. The detachable blower/powerhead isn’t something I expected to use; however, it’s pretty convenient to have as a backup. Since the blower doesn’t have an adjustable speed trigger (it’s a switch so either on or off), it provides the exhaust of the 6-peak HP vac motor at full throttle (143 CFM). It’s good for small jobs like ridding the patio of maple helicopters and cleaning the driveway. The powerhead/blower weighs about 8 lbs and that includes the chord. With the typical RIDGID lifetime warranty and everything that comes with it, this vac/blower is a winner in my book!

My floor care people have used the Ridgid 12 gal vac for a couple years. They use it to suck up wax stripper and wax off of a VCT floor. Although it needs to cleaned after every use, because the product dries and will clog everything, it never ever fails to deliver! Once a week, this vacuum takes a beating and comes back swinging. Besides the attachments shown, there are more available and at a reasonable price. Leaf blower? Can not wait to try that out.

I really enjoy this 12 GAL. 6.0-PEAK HP NXT WET/DRY VAC WITH DETACHABLE BLOWER. It comes with everything you need to get started, including hose, 7 accessories and a bag. With the large container, it's great for getting leaves without having to empty all the time like smaller models. It comes with casters so moving it around your work area it a breeze. The other great thing about this is its Full lifetime warranty against material defects and workmanship.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I received this vacuum to build a dust collection cart for my shop. I have another Ridgid shop back in the garage that’s lasted you for years and I expect this one to do the same. The motor isn’t too loud and the suction is excellent. It’s really a brilliant idea as well to add the blower feature. I’ve done it in the past with hooking up the hose to the outlet on the back of the vacuum but it’s never quite the same. This leaf blower attachment puts out a ton of their air and will easily move the biggest pile of leaves. You never think somebody was going to be able to make an improvement to just a plain old vacuum but I think Ridgid come up with a great idea here. The clip on tools is great as well allows you to pull the vacuum around the shop without continuously unplugging the hose.
