Questions & Answers

Does it come with wheels?

Very heavy to carry. The box was already picked up by trash collector, so I can't double check the packaging.i love it but I'd love it more if it could roll!
Asked by: Momma
Yes, but they DO NOT snap into place. I tried for ten minutes then had my 16 year-old bodybuilder son try and it is impossible to get them to snap into place so they just fall off when you pick up the vacuum. Taking it back for a refund.

Asked by: jerryrusty
It is not recommended. Depending on your use you can remove the pleated paper filter or purchase a sponge type filter that will replace the pleated paper filter.

Customer Reviews

14 Gal. 6.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1697.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet and tons of suction After some research on the internet, I decided on the 14 gallon WD1450 variant that come with Ridgid's 'Auto Detailing Kit'. This turned out to be exactly the way to go. I do a lot of wood and metal projects in my basement and the vac's 4" diameter hose eats not only the dust and chips, but wood scraps that would never pass through the smaller diameter hose of my old 12 gallon Shop-Vac. The suction is incredible. Perhaps appreciated more than anything else is that it is QUIET for a wet/dry vac. Along with the lower dB's is the characteristic of the WD1450's noise. -It lacks the particularly annoying (to me) high frequency whine that a lot of wet/dry vacs have. I see that some manufacturer's offer 'mufflers' for their units at an additional cost. It would be a waste of money on the 1450. The tools that come with the vac are all pretty useful though i wish that with all the suction this unit has that Ridgid's large orifice 'Utility Nozzle' was as wide as their narrow but wider rubber bladed 'Wet Nozzle'. Still, I didn't have it in me to take off a star for an otherwise perfect machine. I said mine came with a car detailing kit. This is also the smart way to buy the machine. At least one of the big home supply stores sells that WD1450 variant only $20 above the basic 1450. The detainling kit if bought separately is $40. The kit's longer, smaller diameter and FLEXIBLE hose gives one a longer reach into the back of something like an SUV or van. The smaller nozzles get into much tighter places as well. The kit also comes with two brushes. the soft one is great for dashes and instrument panels and the stiff one is great on the mats.

It has a "lifetime warranty" so I assumed it would be fixed or replaced asap. There are no close service centers and they have you send them some very specific pics and then their engineering dept. look them over. 2 weeks later I was contacted and told that since my pics showed a "dust bunny" and "a hair", it meant my vac was misused and my claim was rejected. 1st, It never was operated without the filter in place. 2nd, If a heavy duty shop vac can't handle a dust bunny then I've bought the wrong shop vac. 3rd, why say it has a warranty when you have no intention of honoring it. I took apart the motor and found that one of the motor brushes had a broken wire, it had nothing to do with dust bunnies. I replaced the broken spade connection and it works fine now. Very aggravating to have a brand new piece of equipment tear up so quickly and then have the factory tell me it's my fault. I certainly don't recommend this brand of shop vac.

Didn't even turn it on. Why? Because when I assembled it, there is a 1/4" slack between the top and the bucket. I've never had a shop vac from any other manufacturer with this flaw. It isn't a defect on this one machine, it's a fault with many Rigid vacuums. An internet search shows many people have this issue (and just as many saying "Well, it makes no difference when it's in use"). Yes - it makes a difference when vacuuming debris, and it won't have a place in my garage because of it. I *might* have been able to live with it if Rigid had a specific part that solved the problem; I'm not going to buy weatherstripping to bodge it. Shame - I used to like Rigid equipment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from parts not available I bought this wet/dry vac new from Home Depot two hours ago. Out of curiosity I just checked if the power unit (the main component of a vacuum) is available as a replacement part. It is not. Apparently, Ridgid has no intention of supporting their products. Or maybe home depot is selling obsolete Ridgid products. Either way, there is no fixing it if it fails. Note that the “Full Lifetime Waranty” doesn’t cover “normal wear and tear” so if your $100+ investment needs a part, like a switch, Ridgid is off the hook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had this Ridgid Vacuum before the flood Seriously wish that I had this vacuum before the flood happened in my parent's condo. The vacuum did a great job extracting the water from the carpet that was drenched in 2 inches of water. Product was easy to assemble and started working immediately removing massive amounts of water from the carpet. The drain hole on the bottom makes it very easy to dispose the waste water. The vacuum was not too loud. Not any more than a central vac.
