Questions & Answers

Does this model accept bags or have bags available?

I looked through the specs and can'y find any information if it will accept a bag. Should I assume that it will not? I need it for use sanding drywall and vacs without bags just don't last.
Asked by: mkm1
Yes. The 1640 model does, but not the 1636..

How do I remove the filter? Does the little white nut unscrew or does it get pulled out?
Asked by: Niecie
The filter pulls off of the white “nut”. The end of the filter is rubber and will expand over it to remove and install the filter.

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

To vac up water, do I need to buy a special filter?
Asked by: Scott
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.

I bought one and it arrived without any parts other than the two extension hoses- nothing else..no wheels, no hose, nothing! I took it back and got the replacement out to my car before deciding to check the box and that one had no hose and no wheels. I went back and was so frustrated, I bought an upgraded model instead, fully boxed and seemingly in pristine shape only to get it home and find no wheels on that one either. This company is a mess, don't waste your time or energy on these.

Thank you. It was easy to put together. The wheels snap on. It works well. I like the water discharge at the bottom. Unlike others this 'drain' is closer to the bottom and more water runs out. It is easier to dump the water into the sump pump. I bought the pump attachment. You can attach a small pump at the bottom and then attach a hose to that. It pumps the water out into the yard from the basement.

I bought this as a replacement to a similar wet dry vac I had for 15 years. The price was great and this is a good vacuum for the price however it falls short on suction and the hose size is smaller than others. I was debating spending more but could not resist the low cost and it looked just like my old vacuum. It works ok for small cleanups but i was attempting to suck up sand from my garden and it just couldn't handle it. I am now going to spend more on a higher end unit so this $40 was wasted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rigid Vacuum - Good for Concrete Dust Had to clean out dust (still at it) in crawlspace with uneven surface. I did experience a loss of suction but realized it was an unusual clog in the hose that can happen to any shop vac. Once I knocked it free, the suction was good again and at times ran the vacuum for extensive periods of time. I would recommend however the mid filter (blue) for doing this kind of work as the standard filter that comes with it, while it still catches much dust, you'll need a mask with it. Only one thing I would recommend is a narrow end part for sucking up dust and getting into tight spots as I borrowed from another shop vac to do that. Supply that part under Rigid, then its excellent, hence a star deducted for that lack of a part to buy with the Rigid vac. And yes, I looked for that kind of part in the store.

Suction is mediocre, but blowing power is nonexistent. Even after clamping the hose firmly into place, it constantly detaches. The Rigid floor accessory I purchased separately (because the enclosed upholstery attachment is too small for a garage floor) does not fit and would require a costly adapter. The Rigid WD1640 is simply not worth the money or trouble, given its limited uses. Returning pronto.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wet/dry vacuum was pleased with how quick this came, however after putting together did realize how small of a hose and suction attachment were. Had to buy the bigger ones and they were relatively expensive. We wanted this for a garage floor so definately needed the bigger attachment's, If only needed for a small area it would work great!

I use this to vacuum sawdust from different machines as I use them (table saw, router, shaper, planer, etc.). The hose is not the "standard" size I have used for years, its smaller. Now I will have to rig up adapters to "make it fit"! Probably made the hose smaller to save money.
