How can i keep the wheels from coming off everytime i pick it up cant keep them in

Asked by Yoz November 22, 2020

Answers

The wheels actually snap in. I used a rubber mallet because they were kind of hard to push in by hand. I had bought two of these and same issue with both. But after they snapped in, I have had no issues of the wheels falling off

Does the larger hose (more than 2"), attach to this vacuum as well?

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
