Questions & Answers

What type of wet filter do you need with this vacuum

Asked by: DB
Don't know of any shop vac that uses a filter for the wet use of the vac. The ones I have seen and used have to take the filter out to use with liquids.

Can I hook this vacuum up to my table saw's 2 inch dust port? If so, do I need an adapter?

Is there a strap attachment for the blower?

Asked by: TC
It doesn't have a strap but the unit (detached) is very lightweight, the only "hassle" would be the power cord, but that one is 20' long so you get a lot of coverage. If you need to work on large areas you should get a very long extension cord or go for a battery or gas powered blower. Hope this helps!

Can this be used as a 12 hour blower/dryer for wet carpet? Turn it on and leave it blowing on damp carpet for 12+ hours

Asked by: JPose
Hello JPose, The vacuum should not be left running attended as you may fail to notice important signs indicating abnormal operations. It’s recommended that the machine be allowed a few minutes every half hour to cool.

16 Gal. 6.5-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac with Detachable Blower is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 728.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still strong after 20 yrs Well I don't use daily, yet this machine has been used wet/dry, blower and lent out to others, so it is still ready and never a problem. Take care and the life expectancy will show the quality Ridgid put in this product! Also, I see another individual had issue--after 16 yrs.!-- who called and was sent a NEW unit! Wow now that's rare and beyond the scope of nearly all electrical powered tools coverage terms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my wet dry shop vac. Very glad I bought it. If you require a shop Vac look no further. Buy Ridgid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade. Bought this to replace my old 5 gal vac Using this in my shop for woodworking and the blower for leaves and grass trimmings. Very happy with the build of it and it’s very quiet for a shop vac. Used it many times and use a dust separator with it. I highly recommend this for It can be used for many applications.

I have have had 2 prior Ridgid 16 gallon vacs. 1 was stolen and 1 I still use 22 years later. I needed another so I went to HD for a 16 gal rigid. This is horrible. the canister does not seperate from the base and attachments. You must remove all attachments then turn whole vac upside down to empty. The neck of the canister is narrower than body so you can never dump everything to switch to wet. I am looking for an old one on craigslist. I will donate this to goodwill or throw it away. Nothing good here. PS Ridgid is doing great things on other tool designs. Not here the design team were out to lunch and never had to use this pathetic, frustrating tool. Mods to the filter are awful bring back the threaded tower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid shopvac This shopvac is awesome improvement from all previous vacs. Great features of handling and attachments. My wife and I are very happy with this product especially the steer ability with the handle on the back in the cart form. Thank you Rigid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 2-in1 vac blower! Assembly of the WD1680 vac blower was simple enough (be sure to push the wheels in hard until you hear a clicking/snapping sound to lock them in place (otherwise they can fall out). The vac comes with a handful of useful attachments and works really well. Most impressive is the blower functionality! It's very strong! IF you use this to clean sawdust off of power tools, wear a respirator and safety goggles.. Serisouly, this thing will blow sawdust all over the place! The only thing I really wish was the hose was constructed to be more solid (stepping on it risks cracking the plastic - so I gave a 4 rating for durability). But overall, a great shop vac with plenty of blower and suction power!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use it in my wood shop and it works Great! I bought this to replace my old shop vac. I use it to hook up to my saws and rigid planer. You will have to buy adapters to fit your equipment. It strong suction and great price makes it worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome power that delivers all the performance you want! I bought this unit for one job that I had doubts about but quickly realized I had purchased the right machine to meet my needs.
