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.

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

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.

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...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extension Wands Not securing properly Recently I bought a 60L 5 Peak Rigid Wet Dry Vacuum from Home Depot Canada. It is working well but the locking extension wands are not good enough to use. Though boast of "Locks securely to hose or another wand and won't fall off during use, " It always detach [ even if secured tightly] when I am pulling the wand towards me while vacuuming the carpet area. The locking mechanism does not hold it properly, I think the locking strip and wand material are made of low quality . So giving a three star rating. Otherwise the machine works well.

Instead of having the normal 2 1/2" vacuum hose, it has a 1 7/8" hose. It is the only vacuum of that size that has one. No attachment or hose from my older Ridgid Vacuum will fit it. I ended up returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD PRODUCT!!! Works very well with lots of suction and great capacity. If there is a small downside, it is much larger than I anticipated. Takes up a fair amount of space in the garage. Product is very good, my garage quite small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from RIGID 16 L Vacuum Totally as advertised. Suction with bag installed is very disappointing Without the bag, not great I wouldn't recommend this unit even though the price was great. It's just not a real shop-vac!
