Asked by gec April 1, 2021

Hello gec, Thanks for asking! The suction power of this vac is rated at 161 CFM and water lift is 46 inches.

How smooth is the inside of the hose?

Asked by Sj March 21, 2021
1
Answer

Hello SJ, Thank you for asking. The inside of the hose is not completely smooth, but is smoother in profile than the outside of the hose. The texture is also a more slick surface than the outside allowing most dust and debris to pass through the inside of the hose unless it is too large or long. If you have questions or concerns, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

Asked by Steve March 4, 2021

Answers

Steve, sounds like you might have broken the motor, or the motor driver. I would first try to exchange at home depot. If that doesn't work, you can try troubleshooting motor connections for infinite resistance (broken wire), or a short (near zero ohms). Then you could try looking at the motor driver board for any signs of burnt electronics by smell or appearance. Could also be a broken cord, or blown fuse(?).

Would I be able to push this hose across 20’ of pool cage gutter or is it too flexible?

I'd say it is too flexible but you might be able to attach a length of conduit or something else reasonably stiff to make it work

I love the extra length of hose to get to places I can't take the vacuum, like around my attic opening, or vacuuming a different room. It came with 3 different attachments. I was hoping to connect 2 of the 20 foot hoses together, but that didn't work. But the 20 foot works good by itself.
by DangerousDale
It's great not having to move the shop vac around as much
Recently worked on my water damaged ceiling. Using this hose made it so convenient as I didn't have to move the wet/dry vac around at all in a tight space.

Better buy than the 13 foot. If you have an older Rigid shop vac like me, mine is a 6.25 from 2001, the connector in the vac is slightly larger than the newer 2.5 inch vac and Home depot or Rigid online don't have the older fitting. I found one on a online parts store. Shame on Home depot.

Solid shop vac for the price !
Great Wet/dry vac all around!! The cord coming in at 20 feet was a huge plus as it stores away with a breeze. Storage mount for all the attachments is adequate and the hose tucks away cleanly. I blower is strong for what it is and happy with the suction power of the 6.5 motor. The Model # HD1600 comes with multiple attachments but I also purchased the Premium Car Cleaning Accessory Kit because I recently got a new truck and it is helping me keep it clean! The attachments hooked right up the existing hoses that added some extra length to the hose with no loss of suction. It is a great add-on for this unit if you are into detailing your vehicle as it the vacuum moves freely with 360° movement. I am very happy with this shop vac and would recommend it to friends.

Bought this 20 foot long hose with adapters on sale as it says it fits Ridgid Vacuums and the original hose was splitting after a couple years. None of the newly supplied adapters were large enough to fit this vac, 16gal, 5hp. After some research found that Ridgid doesn't make anything but original hose to fit the inlet of 2 5/8". The original 7ft hose is just too short and too small diameter to get the same thing again. Decided to keep and adapted to fit the oversize vacuum openings by using part of the old hose coupler. Hopefully it last longer without cracking. Poor design on Ridgid part not to be the same as the rest of their vacuums or to at least offer a separate adapter.
by 900rr1
Response from RIDGIDMay 28, 2020
Hello 900rr1, Thanks for your feedback and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. While we're not certain how the splitting happened on the original hose, note that the hoses will naturally wear out as you use the vac. We could inspect whether it's a manufacturing defect or it's normal wear and tear. In addition, it's true that our new hoses no longer have the adapter for the old vacuum models. However, you may call call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll see how we can be of help. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid
Powerful Shop Vacuum
Just picked it up on 4/6/20 and so far it's a great shop vac. Lots of power and the detachable leaf blower is impressive. The power cord is nice and long. Assembly was easy. I coupled this vac with a Dustopper Dust collector, also from Home Depot. These 2 products work surprisingly well together. The Dustopper's 5 gallon bucket was chucked full but the Rigid Shop Vac canister only contained a very minimal amount of dust. Hopefully, this will relieve the stress on the Shop Vac motor when I use it as a dust collector on my table saw, router table, jointer and sanders. The only con so far is the attachment holder doesn't stay in place very well.

Older Vac needs another adapter, ( Not included )
Im sure that this will work great, its a plastic hose. Howerver, if you have an older style vac with a red clip that connects to the vac, this hose nor any of the included adapters will work. Even though the box says older style and newer style adapter they are all too small of a diameter to fit the older style vac. From that point out everything is the same diameter so the new hose wont fit to the old hose or to the older vac. You have to call them and have them send you one. More delays. You would think that they could send you just one more piece of plastic to make it work, but no, they dont.

Response from RIDGIDApr 3, 2020
Hello RussellJ, Thanks for writing a review and we're terribly sorry for the inconvenience. Yes, the new locking hoses do not have this red locking adapter for the old vacuums, but we are willing to help you. We just need the part number of the hose purchased, and model and serial number of the vac. Feel free to call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

Nice to have a longer replacement hose. The only thing was, I didn’t get the older style end fitting to go into my shop vac with my replacement hose. I contacted them and they sent me the end fitting.
