Approximately how much water can this hold before the float ball cuts off suction?

Answers

I just bought mine and haven't used it yet on a wet surface but it works great for my garage floors. I have a lot of crushed granite in the backyard area and my German Shepherds track it in. So this shop vac is perfect for that plus all the dog hair! Others I know say theirs works well with water extraction.

May I ask, does this have a rubber gasket/seal, between the top motor housing and the bottom cont...

Asked by William December 6, 2020

Answers

While there is no rubber seal between the motor and collection bin, i would highly recommend using a bag inside the vacuum for such fine debris. I do tile work and vacuum grout dust as well. I always use bags for that type of cleanup, also thoroughly clean the hose afterward. I keep separate hoses for fine powder debris, they are affordable too. The bags are available on the website as well.

Needed a new wet/dry vac for the garage/house. Exceptional sucking power and easy to move around. I purchased the unit with the auto detailing attachments which i use way more than the big black hose. It tends to reach all areas of the garage without moving the unit around. Hooks to all my tools with the assorted attachments I have. The storage spots on the feet made it easy to adapt (without modifying the unit in any way) to include the dust separator. It does appear to be louder than my previous unit even with the diffuser. Have been using it for over a month and it has been great. I really like the ability to use it as a blower as well as a vac. After each days work in the garage I clean the shop and use the blower to get all the dust that I was not able to vacuum up. This unit is helping keep the garage, cars and project areas/house clean.

Very satisfied with the Rigid Shop Vac, so far it's excelent for keeping my Traeger Silverton 620 peller grill dust free. I will be cleaning out my mini van next & after that I'll be cleaning out my Air Exchanger intake vents . So far , I'm liking the Rigid Shop Vac & @ a bargain price. Don't be fooled by those other shop vac's this one has the power for what ever needs vacuuming around the house.

Bought this to upgrade from an older Craftsman 6 gallon vacuum...This Ridgid vac is larger of course but not too large and has plenty of power and suction for my needs: It lives in the garage and I'm using it in addition to a dust cyclone which I attach to my woodworking tools (sanders, routers, table saw). I also use it for the usual tasks like shop clean-up and car interior vacuuming. This vac is fantastic and a great deal with the included and extra attachments. Highly recommended!

Has potential, but deceiving warranty and backing from manufacturer
This is my 2nd Ridgid vacuum, my first one was a much smaller model that I passed-along to a friend in need. I picked this vacuum up in 2019, and have been using it for more than a year. Right off the bat, one of the plastic feet was misshaped and as a result, the wheel within would hit the interior surface of the foot and lock in place. So the vacuum could not be moved freely, but I rarely needed to move it so I didn't bother with a warranty claim. Within 2 months, the auto detailing hose fitting on one end broke off. No big deal I thought, I duct-taped it back together and got by. As soon as I started using the vacuum again after over-wintering to 2020, the other end of the auto detailing hose broke. Duct-taping it wouldn't really create a good vacuum, so I finally reached out to Ridgid for a warranty claim. Turns out, Ridgid DOES NOT WARRANTY anything but the vacuum itself. So whatever is attached to the top of the waste drum and is electrical, is "warrantied". Literally everything else is not. So all of the detailing tools I have, which were a large selling point and which only connect to the auto detailing hose? Useless unless I buy another hose that will undoubtedly break the same way. The Ridgid representative referred me to buy replacement poor-worksmanship parts out-of-pocket, for nearly as much as the vacuum cost me originally. A very unfortunate way to mislead customers into thinking their purchase is backed by the manufacturer.

Response from RIDGIDApr 26, 2020
Hello RyanV, Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and we're extremely sorry to have learned your disappointment. It's not typical that the caster feet would become misshaped especially if it's brand new. Moreover, the adapter of the orange hose where the accessories connect is removable and should be able to re-attach by twisting it back against the flexible part. With that being said, if the adapter on the other end got disconnected, we'd like to inspect and see how we can help. Would you be able to send us an email with these pictures and a screenshot of this review and send it to info@ridgidvacs.com? If you need to call us, toll-free number of Customer Service is1-800-474-3443 and we're open from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid
