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, 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.

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

Can you hook this up to your table saw for dust collecting?
Asked by: Mb
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 do I remove the filter? Does the little white nut unscrew or does it get pulled out?

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.

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

At the time of the listing, it was not evident the vacuum hose diameter was 1 7/8 dia, where one would assume a vacuum this size would have the standard 2.5in dia hose. So you have to buy the $10 adaptor to fit any 2.5in dia accessories. No longer a great deal

Disappointed with the lack of suction for a 5 hp vac. The 1 7/8" hose was also a disappointment. Everything else was as expected, good fit and finish and operation. Wouldn't recommend.

Was disapointed that my local Home Depot didn't carry a crevice attachment, so I purchased a hose adaptor set between $8.00 and $9.00 and used an old one I had.

I purchased this model RIDGID wet/dry vac to vacuum out our vehicles last year. I used it twice up until last week. My basement had flooded, so I grabbed the vac out of the garage, removed the filter, and began sucking up water using one the attachments for carpeting. After four trips to dump it out (after the first time, I only filled it half-way due to weight) the motor burned out. Six uses over the course of two years, and the motor burned out under light strain. This product is absolute garbage, and left me to clean up the rest of the water with my trusty sponge and bucket. I did contact customer service, but they were angling for me to receive a replacement. I told them that I will NEVER purchase or have one of their products in my tool lineup again. Buyer beware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the second Ridgid Vacuum... This is the second Ridgid Vacuum i have purchased. I bought the second one as a back up due to the incredible Door buster sale. My first vacuum is still operating perfectly and under commercial circumstances. Shop Vac can NOT hold a candle to these vacuums. I dont know if anyone out there has tried to by parts for thier Shop Vac but its next to impossible. So when you yank on the hose for the Ridgid vacuum and break the wheel, Its pretty easy to get a replacement. Great vacuum all the way around. Extremely powerful. GO SEE FOR YOURSELF! BYE Shop Vac!
