Questions & Answers

128Questions62Answers

Does this model accept bags or have bags available?

Asked by mkm1 December 19, 2014
10
Answers

Yes, mine came with a bag and I am using it. The fine dust will clog the filter and the suction won't be as strong. You can use it without a bag but you should use one or you'll go through filters pretty quick and lower the performance of the vac while making the motor work harder.

How do I remove the filter? Does the little white nut unscrew or does it get pulled out?

Asked by Niecie December 29, 2017

Answers

unscrew?

Can you hook this up to your table saw for dust collecting?

Asked by Mb January 8, 2017
7
Answers

Yes. You need to get an adapter that fits both the 2 1/2" vacuum hose and your table saw dust outlet. Mine was 2 3/4" so I got an adapter that connects 2" plastic pipe to cast iron. Works great.

how much does it weight

Asked by robert February 7, 2019

Answers

23.2 lbs when vac drum is empty; maybe up to nearly 100 lbs when full, depends on debris or liquid

Can this item be used without having the 'dry' filter in vac?

Asked by SA November 25, 2018

For water vacuuming, yes. For dry waste, no.

To vac up water, do I need to buy a special filter?

Asked by sks804 November 29, 2016
6
Answers

Just remove the regular filter and bag and it will work for water. Optionally you can add a wet filter (VF7000) to help reduce water going thru the machine.

Asked by alicia December 19, 2016

yes. for that u need thin mouth attachment.

Can I have it sucking water and draining from the port at the same time?

Asked by SushiPaul September 10, 2018

Yes, just remove the drain plug. There's enough suction even without the drain plug installed .

I bought this to replace the small 2.5 gallon shop vac I was using on my DIY dust collection system. It has preformed better than expected. I would highly recommend Ridgid to anyone needing a new shop vac.

Got this when it was on sale; it has good capacity and great power. The only downside is all the plastic, no foam sleeve for the filter, one bag and one tool.. mainly the plastic being the downside. Other than that, it's pretty good and I'd recommend it to someone if they got it at the same price as me.

Lifetime Warranty is NOT the same as the RIDGID Lifetime Service Agreement. The following is a quoted message from "RIDGID® Power Tool Support" when I asked support why I could not register it: "RIDGID brand vacuums are not eligible for the Lifetime Service Agreement. These products are manufactured by a separate division that maintains their own policies and procedures regarding warranty. You may reach them at 1.800.474.3443, option 2, for further information. " In other words: normal wear and tear is not covered by this Ridgid Lifetime Warranty... I would return it if I had paid full price...

This vacuum is pretty awesome, very powerful, easy to assemble. It is my first shop vacuum and it was a great price. Three of the female woodworkers I know went and bought the same one after I posted about the sale and my purchase on IG! I love this vacuum. It has been working great and it is very reliable! I also used the box to prevent the saw dust from flying everywhere from my miter saw! LOL
