About This Product

The RIDGID 16 Gal. NXT 6.5 Peak Horsepower Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum was built with RIDGID's most powerful horsepower motor, engineered for the pros with the toughest cleanups and comes with the OSHA and HEPA Filtration Kit. When the cyclonic bag and HEPA Material filter are installed together (in select RIDGID vacs listed below), this vac is OSHA Silica Table 1 compatible for certain dry dust collector control methods and HEPA-filtered vacuum control methods (1926.1153) within the limitations of their airflow performance. This model also includes a cart with large rear wheels, the fine dust filter (VF5000) to capture fine powders and debris and accessories for any job - 2 extension wands, a utility nozzle, car nozzle, wet nozzle, crevice tool and a muffler/diffuser. The drum offers maximum capacity at 16 gal. and the 2-piece drum construction provides lasting durability. Storage is readily available with hooks to store the hose and caster feet that fit both 1-7/8 in. and 2-1/2 in. accessories. The 2-1/2 in. locking shop vac accessories lock onto a wand or hose for uninterrupted cleaning. Pro Tip: Add a replacement RIDGID shop vac filter (VF4000, VF5000, VF6000, VF7000 or VF8000; sold separately) to a RIDGID shop vac to maintain the power of the vac and extend vacuum life. Add a dust collection bag (VF3502, VF3602, VF3702 sold separately) to help with quick cleanup and disposal.

        Q:Can this vacuum be used for silica dust removal from masonry/concrete block grinding cleanup?
        by|Oct 8, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello West, Thank you for reaching out to us regarding our product. We appreciate your interest! We are pleased to inform you that the VF6500 OSHA Compatible Kit, which includes our vacuum, meets the OSHA Silica Table 1 Compatibility requirements for specific dry dust collector control methods. However, it is important to note that in order to fully comply with OSHA regulations, both the VF6000 filter and VF3602 cyclonic dust bag must be used in conjunction with our vacuum. We want to emphasize that while our VF6500 vacuum and accessories contribute towards meeting OSHA requirements, they are just one part of a comprehensive approach. To ensure full compliance with OSHA regulations and manufacturer guidelines, we strongly recommend following all recommended practices and using appropriate tools as specified by both OSHA and the manufacturers. If you have any further questions or need additional information about our product or its compatibility with OSHA regulations, please feel free to reach out to 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. Best regards, RIDGID

          I bought this vac because it was advertised as Osha and Hipaa compliant. What makes it compliant are a Hipaa filter and filter bags which come separately. Instructions on the bags show installation on a vacuum with a short inlet tube (approx. 1"). The inlet tube on the HD1800 vacuum protrudes more than 3". To install the bags, the rubber gasket around the cardboard collar must be stretched so far that it gets dislodged from the cardboard. A good seal between the bag and the inlet tube, and Hippa compliance, are impossible once the rubber gasket is dislodged. Additionally, the full filter bag is often ripped open when being pulled around the long inlet tube. Ridgid customer services insisted that the rubber gasket could go around the long inlet tube but the video they provided as instruction had a shorter tube.

          After putting the vacuum together, the last thing we needed was the rod that held the two back wheels together, which was missing. I immediately called the company, and they said they would ship it within Seven working days. This vacuum has been sitting here for almost three weeks, and there is no sign of the missing part to be delivered.

          Powerful. Big casters avoid tipping and allow travel over cords and uneven surfaces. Nice set of accessories.

          The combination of HEPA bag and HEPA filter made the grinding of concrete absolutely dustless. Great suction. Well worth the extra price for this unit. Cheaper models don’t allow for the use of bags. It is even harder to find a lower priced shop vac that has a HEPA rated filter. The HEPA rated bag is a great double protection.

          OSHA and HEPA Filtration Kit NOT INCLUDED
          I purchased this unit online and they sent me a unit without the OSHA and HEPA Filtration Kit. Because this unit was suppose to include the OSHA and HEPA Filtration Kit is the very reason I bought it. Returned it. Would not recommend. Furthermore, I live 45 minutes away from the nearest store. Time and gas wasted.
