will this fit other brands or just Rigid?

Asked by rst November 27, 2020
1
Answer

Adaptor connects included 1-1/4" accessories to a 2-1/2" hose So if you have a 2 1/2" hose for your current brand, it will work. If not you can buy a Ridgid shop vac and car cleaning accessory kit. This weekend the Home Depot has sales on both. You also get a lifetime warranty on the Ridgid brand.

is this vacum goo for floods in the basement?

Asked by Muneca November 23, 2020

It depends on how flooded your basement is. I holds about 6 gallons of water. You will need to empty it out to vacuum up more so lifting it up the stairs to drain it won't be easy

Answers

Hello JJN, Thanks for asking. The accessories in the VT2534 kit are made to fit the supplied premium hose. You'll need a 1-7/8” to 1-1/4” adapter from (VT1755) to be able to use the accessories of your VT2534 kit to the original black hose. If you have questions or concerns, you may call our Customer Service 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.

I don't know but I would cut up a pair of pantyhose and slide one or both legs over the hose and wrap a rubber band around it. Or buy a pair of leggings and do the same.

Does this work well for dust collection on the 13inch Ridgid Planer?

Asked by Rid123 October 27, 2020
2
Answers

Hello Rid123, Thank you for your interest in our products. We're sorry we can't guarantee it will work with Ridgid planer as not all vacs have the connector available. Additionally, it would be difficult to confirm without knowing the size of the dust port of your planer. We've heard some success stories on the connection of our vacuums with some RIDGID power tools. You might also want to check out our VT1407 power tool adapter that can be hooked up to our vacs with 2-1/2" hoses and connects to certain sizes of power tool. The adapter can be trimmed off depending on the size of the dust port. If you have further questions, please call our Customer Service 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.

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.

I bought this kit about two months ago, used maybe twice and for less than a 2 hour period. Hose snapped just like everyone else has stated. I called Rigid and basically they were no help at all. They told me to return it to HD, I asked if there was anything they(rigid) could do they said no. They suggested I could take a picture of the damage & receipt and send it in, however the CRS said they probably wouldn’t replace it. No longer will I purchase rigid brand.

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.

Hello Pai, We're glad that you're happy with your purchase and we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. It's not typical that the hose would break easily, however, the swivel end of this hose is removable and you should be able to twist it back against the orange part of the hose. If you need further assistance, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Or, send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

Loved it ... until it broke! ...
Loved it ... until it broke! Purchased this kit in August (so just over two months ago) and we’ve been using it to clean our cars on the weekend. The accessories are great, especially the crevice tool. Just like several other reviewers have said, it works great for the nooks and crannies in your car. Unfortunately, this past weekend, the hose broke at the end where the attachments go. Another reviewer suggested that the hose isn’t actually broken, that you just have to screw it back in. I tried it but I think the part really is broken. After I “screwed” it back on as far as it would go, it would hold briefly but then flop back off again. So disappointed. :(
