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 two dust collection bags. Dust collection bags are the quick and easy solution for containing dry debris during cleanups - just remove the bag from the drum and dispose. This model includes a cart with large rear wheels, the fine dust filter (VF5000) to capture fine powders and debris and accessories to equip the pro 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. Use the utility nozzle for larger areas, the car nozzle for detailed cleaning and the crevice tool for tight spaces. For wet applications, attach the wet nozzle and for extended reach, use the 2 extension wands. The large power switch, bottom drum handles and built-in drain upgrades the vac. The Qwik Lock Filter makes installing or removing your filter quick, easy, and secure. Pro Tip: Add a replacement RIDGID shop vac filter (sold separately) to a RIDGID shop vac to maintain the power of the vac and extend vacuum life.

          Bag broke in vacuum, made huge mess. Very inconvenient and waste of money. The other bag in the package came with a hole already in it!

          The Vacuum Is Amazing But The Quality Is Terrible
          It is so sad that this vacuum has to get a bad review because Rigid went cheap I expected more for $170. The first version of this I bought is the slightly cheaper one and the hose kept breaking I went through 3. I then upgraded to this and the actual piece the hose connects to pulled right out of the machine. I guess if you only use your vacuum on occasion you will be fine but I use this daily for car detailing and it just will not stand up to the test of time.

            This Vacuum Is Almost Perfect..
            I use this vacuum for commercial automotive detailing and it is great. It has the most suction I have seen on a wet/dry vac so far. The hose is a good length. The only thing I don’t like is that when you put the hose on the hood wet it blocks where the cord wrap is I feel like they could fix this pretty easily.

              Nice, but the switch location is terrible!
              I've had it for about a year and use it for light duty. The switch location in this new design is so annoying. If the any of the cord is still wrapped around the handle/cord holder, its in the way of the "ON" side of the switch. Uuhhhgg! Other than that, it really nice if you use the hepa filter, bag and exhaust filter.

                Poor Rear Wheel Ground clearance
                I bought the Ridgid HD18000 Shop-Vac with cart to use exclusively as a wet-vac to clean my fish pond. The large rear wheels have very poor ground clearance for my backyard. I fixed this by cutting off one inch off the bottom of the two axel supports. This does not seem to affect axel integrity. Poor axel support - cheap thermoplastic instead of engineering plastic (even on the "stainless-steel" model). Not sure how long this will hold up wheeling the weight of the water outside in my yard.

                  No inlet into bag
                  There was a manufacturing defect with the VF3502 bags I purchased. The was no actual hole into the bag behind the cardboard collar or if there were perforations they were too strong to allow the first bag layer to open when the collar was pressed onto the inlet tube inside the vacuum drum - pressing any harder would have torn the cardboard collar off the expensive bag. I ended up using scissors to cut the necessary hole into the bag.

                    Poor suction.
                    Bought this and the additional hose kit. It's the worst purchase I've ever made. It barely picks small pieces of debris up and it has trouble picking up drywall dust. I have the hepa filter installed and its clean. It took me almost 10 minutes to clean up some small construction debris and drywall from a 4x4 electrical closet. Never again...

                      Not for fine dust
                      Using these bags for fine dust, like concrete cutting and grinding, causes the seams at the ends of the bags to come undo and blow out. Bot after 3 days of grinding, but only 10 minutes. Absolute mess when the bag busts open inside a 6hp vac and completely clogs the filter. Someone needs to design a bag that actually works and doesn't cost $10 each!

                        The lifetime warranty
                        I'm not even sure how old mine was. But, if I had to guess, I think it's at least 15 years. I've used it for many tasks including cleaning up ash from the BBQ (a very fine powder that could easily mess with the motor if the filter failed) and sucking out the contents of my pool filter so I could remove the cartridges. (I'd estimate about 20 gallons of filthy water, sand and other small particulates) A few weeks ago, I contacted warranty support because the power switch (a red toggle on the old ones, not the rocker style like the new ones) had broken off in the "on" position. It broke flush with the housing, so there was no way to turn the unit off, excepting to unplug it. After complying with their pre-requisites of taking pictures and explaining the problem, they replaced the entire funky old unit with brand spanking new one just like is advertised here. Thank you, Ridgid, for living up to expectations regarding the warranty coverage.
