Questions & Answers

Does this model accept bags or have bags available?

I looked through the specs and can'y find any information if it will accept a bag. Should I assume that it will not? I need it for use sanding drywall and vacs without bags just don't last.

To vac up water, do I need to buy a special filter?
Asked by: Scott
Just remove the regular filter and bag and it will work for water. Optionally you can add a wet filter (VF7000) to help reduce water going thru the machine.

It is much better then my prior 5 gallon shop VAC. I do recommend getting some additional accessories for it although as it only comes with the one attachment. But overall great bang for the buck.

The top disconnects when you pick it up. So you cant pick it up by the cord wrap handle. The wheels bend , especially if you use it out doors in lawn or dirt. It is has a strong vacuum motor. If you put a dust bag inside to keep atmospheric dust/sawdust etc. to a minimum that seems to work especially if you are spraying enamle or lacquer but be gadamn sure you attach the dust bag goos because they like to slide off. I think Ridgid could do a better job on design. Also if you refinish wood floors like I do once in a while don't use this vacuum because when it rolls across the newly sanded oak floor it likes to leave black marks which you will have to go back and pull out your touch up sander and then remove them.m

Works good, but my 15 year old rigid vac is still going strong, it's hose is larger in diameter, the attachments are bigger and seem more sturdy. So while this works OK, it seems they have skimped a bit on the parts just to say money.....We'll see how this works out long term. The new one is quieter than my older unit.

Used it continuously for 4 hours and the vacuum did not break a sweat. This is the second Rigid dry/wet vac I've owned. The first wet/dry vac I sold after 12 years of use. I would definitely buy another Rigid product!

A filter replacement or bag costs so much it seemed like a good deal. Have an older rigid that is still very useful. Limited attachments, and make sure the blower and vacuum ports are in opposite directions when configuring. Great power and well designed.

The only downside is the size of the hose and attachments. This poses no problem for the occasional user but for a busy workshop, the one with the 2 1/4" hose & attachments would be better.

So I was going to get another one. Haven't used this one yet. Skinny hose, horse trough sized container. Not what I thought I was getting.
