Why wouldn't you use a blower and blow the gutters out like I always have ?

Can this be used like a pump for a flooding wet area?

Hoping to hook up an exot hose and have this run continuously to remobe water.
Asked by: Chase
We use it all the time to suck out bottom of pools. You can suck 3-4 gallons and it's easy to move and dump with the handle. It's easier to dump out the top.

Hi, Do you need to use a dust bag with this wet vac ? Thank You
Asked by: Reggie
Good question, No a dust bag is not necessary, there is a diffuser that can be screwed in , to the top that prevents materials from flying out

Can you attach an elbow joint directly to the shop vac port?

I want to put the vac inside a cabinet and due to space constraints it will not fit with the hose attached.
Asked by: Jim
Hello Jim, Thanks for your question! We haven't tried this therefore we can't confirm. We normally have the hose connected to the vacuum's port then you can connect the attachment on the end of the hose. If you need further assistance or you have more questions, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

16 Gal. 6.5-Peak HP NXT Wet Dry Shop Vacuum with Fine Dust Filter and Accessories is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 116.

Great suction and very easy to move around. The power cord is very good quality. Not stiff like cheap equipment. The filter is sort of a pain as it snaps into place and sometimes that does not work real well. I have had Craftsman in the past and the filter was easy to deal with, however their quality went south. It would be nice if their engineers used the equipment they design. One thing they did was put little locks on the hoses and attachments, it takes a little effort to remove those and it works better without the locks. I suppose they were afraid of someone stealing the parts. Over all it is a good machine and I am glad I have it. I did buy the kit so I could attach two hoses (the one from the old shop vac) and it sure makes cleaning our a car easy. I really like the larger wheels on the back.

I have used many different shop vacs over the years, including Rigid, and this is the worst yet when used for wet pickup. Out of the box the brackets for the handle were missing. The very first use the float failed to rise, it was stuck at the bottom of the cage inside so the unit overfilled and pulled water through motor. After freeing up float I found that the smallest particle in the water you're cleaning can cause the float to get stuck and fail. After spending an additional $20 on a wet filter (never has been a requirement for water before) I found that there's still always a strong mist blowing out the discharge port, I assume this is because of the shallow design of the tank. I haven't used for dry pickup yet. Wish I could have returned, but was in middle of flooded basement and needed to use it as is at the time..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I will start this review by saying I have been using Ridgid vacuums for over 20 years. I use them... I will start this review by saying I have been using Ridgid vacuums for over 20 years. I use them for my floor refinishing business, primarily as a wet vac. I have probably gone through at least 50 of them. When this new one came out, I was excited about the redesign. I ordered it online and it was delivered the next day, which was great. Assembly was easy as usual . The first time I took it out to a job site for use, the problems began. The vacuum struggled to pick up the water with the wet nozzle. Once there was one or two gallons in the tank, foam and Water started spewing out from the exhaust, spraying the water everywhere. I emptied the vacuum and checked for any holes or leaks but could not find any. I took everything apart and put it back together just in case. I then tried to use it again and it did the same thing. Luckily, I did it outside this time just to test it out. Also, when I tried to suck water out of a bucket, the motor sounded like it was struggling. Again, this is unlike any other Ridgid vacuum I had used previously. I am not sure if I got a lemon or if this is a problem with the new design of the vacuum. Luckily, I was able to return it in store and replace it with one of the previous generation models, we're just working great. As usual, outstanding customer service from Home Depot. However, I am very leery to try out this new vacuum again once one of my other ones has completed its life cycle.

As it seems to becoming more frequent management does not pay attention to the sale flyers. endcap display with sale product and posted price WRONG. Had to return product for correct advertised product. NEW STORE Manager pays no attention. Ridgid shop vac excellent, although did not come with enough screws to complete assembly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vac, but rolling wheels get caught in rough terrain.... Good vac, but rolling wheels get caught in rough terrain. If being used for new construction you have to carry it. Large hose is stiff. But you get what you pay for. Surprised at the price of the filters also. I bought it for a drywall sander. It keeps up but the filter gets clogged within 10 m

The handle is great ( a little flimsy, yet still great) the muffler helps tremendously. Attachments are good, cord and hose roll up nicely. Now don’t redesign it and make it worse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great so far, I’ve used it heavily for drywall... Works great so far, I’ve used it heavily for drywall and some water cleanup. Would rate it excellent but I haven’t used it long and the fact that you have to purchase a wet filter separate is a turn off. May it should be called a dry vac with a wet vac conversion kit available.
