can i wet vac with paper filter

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.

When vacuuming does it blow air out the back

When vacuuming, does this blow air out the back? If so, is there a part I can buy like an air diffuser or muffler, not sure what to call it. I just don't want dust being blown all over Also, is there another smaller vac (like a 4 gal) but has the same high horse power (6). I"m assuming that is the suction
Asked by: Marie
Yes, this Rigid shop-vac has a rear exhaust that creates a strong airflow from the back and will blow everything around behind it. After using my Rigid shop-vac (Model WD1450) for about a year, I finally bought the "muffler" that Rigid makes for $13. It connects easily to the rear port and significantly reduces/diffuses the exhaust. While this muffler does little/nothing to reduce the noise level of the shop-vac, it definitely eliminates the annoying need to point the exhaust away from un-vacuumed areas.

14 Gal. 6.0-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac with Auto Detail Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2905.

I spent way too much time evaluating various brands and models of wet/dry shop vacs. I was hoping to find one just like this, but smaller, like a 10 gallon. I measured the place I was going to be storing it, and this one fit, so I got it. Here's the bottom line: you can't beat the value of this vacuum with the included accessories. It has exactly the dry filter you actually want – the one for fine dust like cement, drywall, etc. The quality of this unit seems to be outstanding. The sucking/blowing power is outstanding! The attachments that come with it are excellent! The long cord is very important, and it wraps nicely enough around the top. The length of the basic hose is fine. I am 6'6" so the length of the hose combined with the length of the ones is important to me so I don't have to hunch over. This works fine. The lifetime warranty… That's pretty outstanding! Here's my recommendation: just buy this one and save yourself a lot of time!

I'm giving this wet dry vac the highest rating because it has solved a problem for me that I dread every year: cleaning my gutters. I bought the Ridgid gutter kit as well and together they have helped get my gutters cleaned out and working properly for the first time in 2 years! I hate climbing ladders so I've been using a leaf blower with attachment to clean them out from the ground. This never got them clean plus it blew the stuff all over me so I hated doing it. The Ridgid has enough power to vacuum up wet and thick leaves, pine needles, dirt, grit and even stuff actually growing up there. I had to stop and wash mud out of the hose and extension tubes a few times, but it was worth it. I like using it and I have hopes I can keep on top of the problem before the gutters get this bad again. Plus if this hadn't worked, I would have had to pay someone $250 to clean them so I actually saved money with this purchase! I haven't used the car kit yet, but I look forward to trying it out soon. Great product and great deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does all I want it to do. First use of my new wet/dry vac was to clean up the mess from removing ancient wallpaper and then plastering the the poor condition walls.The.Shop Vac is a real workhorse and I am able to move it around easily--I am in my late 70s and about 5'3". It has well-thought-out features such as the hose cradles, electric cord and attachments holders. Once I figured out how to put on the attachments (I was making it too difficult) I used all of them. I like the fact that you can't put it together wrong because of the configuration of the top to the bottom. Have not used if for water yet and hope not to, but we have had water in the basement on very rare occasions. Thanks for building a very good sturdy product and made in the U.S. too. I look forward to cleaning the basement, cobwebs and general dust, next. (!!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet. Very, very quiet.... Had been eyeing this for awhile but I already had two shop vacs -- a 5-gallon and an 18V (and had taken temporary possession of the upstairs neighbors') so was tough to justify dropping another $100. Plus, it was big; really big. So, no. No new shop vac for me. But then I went and bought a planer. After two test runs of a couple 1x4s, I figured I'd check the canister and wow, it was full. One more pass and there may have been trouble. So, hopped online, ordered, picked up and brought it back. Yup, it's big. Really big. But it's ridiculously quiet. My dog HATES all my vacuums and didn't even turn his head with this thing running. Great suction, too. Hooked it up to the table saw, planer and miter saw and it picked up a lot of dust. The additional car kit - especially the orange hose - is an added bonus. One last note: I was really impressed with how tight the main hose connected to my power tools. The table saw and planer are Ridgid but the miter saw is Craftsman; all three were perfect fits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All in all a good vacuum All in all a good vacuum I’m definitely happy with my purchase. Things I like about the vacuum are good suction it’s quiet the price was good. The four things that I don’t like are the cord rollup fingers just in a weird location and are not big enough. The cord doesn’t stay wrapped up or on the location where it was engineered very well. The wheels are junk cheap too small don’t roll the best. The attachment holder I do not like attachment keep falling off will get hooked on whatever I may be pulling the vacuum around found it was just easier to take off and put attachments in a separate bucket so I wasn’t constantly picking them up. Don’t buy the so-called muffler unless you need an air diffuser which they claim it is also they say muffler diffuser and it definitely is not a muffler my vacuum actually got louder by a couple tenths of a decibel when muffler was installed verifying using a sound decibel app on my phone so save your $13 on the so-called muffler which it isn’t air diffuser yes muffler no.

The smaller orange hose creates better suction when vacuuming and shampooing the floor mats and floorboard carpet. The scrubbing brush and crevice tool have made everything much easier. Ridgid did a excellent job putting this package together not to mention the quality of the wet/dry vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than adequate power, rugged, & durable! (Model HD1400 NXT) I've had the Ridgid 4 gallon/5 hp WD4070 for about 4 years, and it has preformed flawlessly. When we purchased our first home last year, I realized I needed something with a little more power for my basement+workshop+garage man cave. I was torn between getting this one or the 16 gallon/6.5 hp model because I didn't want to undershoot the power (but didn't want the size of the 16 gallon.) I pulled the trigger on this one after reading that the NXT models were a good bit more powerful than the older 14 gallon models, and I couldn't be happier! I'm a DIY fanatic that includes woodworking (furniture building for the wife), welding, painting/staining, and landscaping (grading/earthmoving). I only say all that to give you an idea of the amount and types of dirt and dust my projects generate. That said, this vac handles it all with ease! I rarely take the time to write these things, but this one certainly deserves it, so hopefully it will help someone out. I can't speak to the vac's commercial abilities, however I know that 95% of the wet/dry vacs I see in the backs of pickups are Ridgid, and that tells me enough. I wouldn't hesitate to use this in a commercial application if needed.

My previous rigid wet dry vac was a smaller unit, but had the same footprint. This unit is a great upgrade. The power alone is night and day different. But its very very quiet as well. I used to wear ear protection when using my old rigid vac for extended period of time. With this one, I can use it while in a closed garage listening to music. Since getting it, I've used it to clean a water fountain (this includes sucking up the nasty sludge at the bottom) - no problem! And lots of wood working dust from a new project. I am extremely pleased and my only aggravation is the fact that I need to get new adapters for connecting to my table saw. The 'tools' for the most part are nice to have. But why not include a better floor bar, I end up grabbing my inside central vacuum bar to clean the floor, the little plastic one included just bounces around and the wider is meant for water and doesn't handle dust very well without getting clogged. Also, why not include a little bag for all the attachments. Its just more advertising. Anyways, the vacuum itself its top notch and makes me wonder how I could use my older one that was so loud.
