Questions & Answers

Can I attach a smaller diameter hose? Ideally 1 1/2.

Asked by: Jason
I seriously don't think that will work, unless you have something that it will attach to. However, you can always call the Pro Desk at Home depot and ask them.

Do I have to change to a different filter to suck water up out of a rug or cement floor? I never change filters for my old vac so I’m confused now.
Asked by: Angel
You would simply remove the filter while vacuuming water.

16 Gal. 6.5-Peak HP Stainless Steel Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 326.

This unit looks pretty, but it won't last. I wanted a nice looking unit for my workshop. Needless to say the stainless steel is thin, dents easily, and won't stand up to normal use let alone heavy duty use. I exchanged it for the same unit but in plastic. The design is the same and it works wonderfully! Strong motor, great suction, nice handle for moving it around the garage, and hose and vac tool storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again! Very pleased with this Ridgid stainless vac. It arrived fast and just in time for a major drywall project (new house). It was easy to put together, however I will let you in on a time saving tip. Mounting the handle can be tricky as other reviews have stated and I found it to be true. The sharp ends of the handle will dig into the plastic handle mounting brackets. These brackets (2) are held in place by two little screws located on the inside of the vac. I recommend taking these screws out and the brackets off of the vac and then inserting the handle to it's locking position. Then re-insert the screws into the brackets as you put them back on with the handle as a one piece unit. I've been using this vac a lot and find it to do a great job. It is quieter than my old Craftsman vac and I think it has more power too. The stock hose is not the best because it is rather stiff and not long enough for me. I will probably upgrade to the pro hose when I get this house done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better that my old competitor's product When my previous shop vacuum burned up, I had to get a replacement quickly. Assembly was quick, and I noticed that no mention was made of installing a bag. A call to customer service confirmed that no bag is required. This will save considerable cash throught the life of the vacuum. The mobility of the machine is great. My previous vacuum would not roll well, and seemed to always be getting hung-up on things in the shop. This one rolls and turns easily when being pulled by the hose, as well as when being pushed by the handle. The vacuum force is superb. I use this vacuum in the shop and attach it to power tools for dust collection. When I am using it on my sliding compound miter saw, I can see the sawdust being sucked through the saw off of the work piece. I rated durability as good only because, although I have had to empty the vacuum once, I haven't had the machine long enough to determine its durability. There is no reason so far make durability suspect. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wet/dry Vacuum Upgrade I purchased this Ridgid 16 Gallon Stainless Steel Wet/Dry Vacuum to replace and upgrade from my standard 16 Gallon Wet/Dry Vacuum that was over 10years old and had some issues. Some of the things I noticed initially was; the hose had been improved to prevent kinking, although it stainless steel it moves much easier and the drum latch assemblies were modified. I also purchased all of the available attachments. In my opinion, I think in the future Ridgid should consider extending the hose or include a longer hose and include all of the available attachments in one package.

I am specifically using this for my shop dust collection with a Rockler Dust Right Dust Separator with a few of their shop attachments. The only thing I wasn't happy with was there were some slight small dents in the body container but nothing worth worrying about and not worth sending back in my opinion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this as a replacement for an identical one... I bought this as a replacement for an identical one I had stolen last year on a remodel project. The design with the cart handle and big wheels on the back makes this far more easy to move around. The power is unmatched by any other vacuum I have used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble, requiring only a Phillips screwdriver. Materials... Easy to assemble, requiring only a Phillips screwdriver. Materials are sturdy and well-made, meaning the parts fit together as designed. Vacuum has excellent suction and hose swivels at both ends so no linking or twisting. Cord is longer than most vacuums, which is convenient. Suction is strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra money. The stainless steel drum cleans out... Worth the extra money. The stainless steel drum cleans out nicer than the plastic. Dust doesn’t cling to the sides. Also it’s a little heavier so it’s less likely to tip when pulling it around by the hose. The big wheels in the back are also nice for moving it around. Love the bag for attachments.
