        Q:Is this vacuum any quieter than the previous R860902 (which I find very loud)?
        by|Jan 8, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello, Dgram - This vacuum is rated at 79.4 dB and is slightly louder than the previous model. There is much more suction power in the this new model and therefore, slightly more sound. We hope this helps!

          Rigid Hand Vac
          Nice and powerful. Convenient and lightweight. Warranty is great. Works well but for one thing. Poor design on where the extension wand connects to the cover housing. It just never stays tight and the extension wand becomes loose very easily while using the vacuum. I mean you have to put 'some' pressure on while vacuuming and this plastic on poly was just not well thought out. So other than that issue, which I feel needs to be improved by the engineers, this product meets expectations.

            worked better than expected, well made
            Ridgid 18 volt cordless vacuum I did not know what to expect with this vacuum, my experience with these was the old dust devils form years ago and they were no too good. I wanted a vacuum we could throw in the car on a trip to keep the floors clean while traveling. The unit itself comes fully assembled, there is no battery and the one in the pics is just so I could test it. It includes a few attachments a floor brash extension wand and crevice tool. So, the vacuum actually has some decent suction, it did clean the floors in my truck with no issue and was easy on the battery. There is no point in telling you how long the batteries last as you can use so many different amh. The dust bin comes off with the click of one button and empties easily, the filter is really just a cup to keep dirt out of the motor so, don’t expect anything impressive. The tools themselves attach easily and work well, for the price I was very happy with this item and it actually exceeded my expectations

            Small and Powerful
            Another good tool from Rigid that runs on the same batteries as my tools. It does a good job of cleaning up the bench or work site of light and heavy dirt. The dirt is collected inside the front half which is easily removed cleaned by pushing a button and removing to dump. The filter can be easily removed for cleaning, This portable vacuum come with an extension and a crevice tool which stores on the tube as well as the regular cleanup head.

            Great for small shop, garage, and house messes as well as in vehicles
            Our family has a hand held vacuum for in the house getting quick cereal spills or dust bunnies, but I am not allowed to use the "nice" vacuum in the garage. It is also annoying to always forget to grab it from inside when I clean the cars and I just end up using the big shop vac rather than walking back inside and upstairs to get the hand held. Now I have this vacuum and my problems have been solved. First, I love that it is a rigid and works with my two 4ah 18v batteries. This means I never run out of power because by the time I finish one the other is charged. Honestly I have only ever made it through one battery and by then both vehicles are clean as well as any small messes in the shop. This thing has great suction, easy to open canister, and a couple of nice accessories. I would like a couple of smaller car cleaning tools, but the longer pole and two heads that came with it are good for most jobs. My biggest complaint is that now I use my 16 gallon Ridgid Shop vac way less because this vacuum does most of the work for the small messes I make!

            Great Features
            The RIDGID 18V Cordless Hand Held Vacuum may look like an ordinary dustbuster, but don't be fooled. This thing has a lot more power than any battery-operated hand-vacuum I've ever used. That's probably the reason it comes with a long extension tube - you could clean the floor with it if you had to. I have a box full of these 18v Ridgid tools now, and they are all first-class. It is a little noisy, but that's all the extra power, I guess!

            Super powerful and light, multiuse
            This tool had quickly become my favorite handheld vacuum. Not only am I a carpenter and generally dirty/outdoorsy person, I have a dog that sheds fur like it’s her job. So I clean everything up from my small apartment to my job site to my car. This thing has enough power to vacuum a shag rug and a pound or five of dog hair/wood dust. It’s super efficient even with a small battery it will do a lot of light cleaning. It has attachments so you can clean almost any space.

            Powerful and convenient.
            Though it is fairly small and hand held, it has plenty of suction power. The toughest job I gave it was cleaning out the charred scrapings from the bottom of the BBQ grill and it did fine. It comes with the necessary standard attachments: extension tube, crevice tool, and a wide (hard floor) tool. It has a 2 piece filter. There is an outer mesh screen an inner filter pad that wraps around and into the port. Both can be removed and shaken out and/or rinsed and reused. That's a big plus for me as I prefer reusable filters to having to constantly buy more. The dirt collector seals well and is easy to remove with the push of a button. Note, this is for dry use only.

            Great suction power...nice addition to my RIGID tool set
            I got this to use for quick clean up in my work area, office area and hard to reach areas. It works great. I especially like the long extension pipe for accessing hard to reach areas. I already had other RIGID tools so had the necessary battery. This is better than other rechargeable brands that I had because you could only use them until the charge went down. In the case, you switch out a battery and keep going. It comes with three attachments: A wide one for rugs, carpet and regular floor vacuuming, a "crevice" attachment for accessing narrow areas, and an extension pipe so you don't have to bend over as much. I like the strong suction power, and the easy cleanup of the dust holding bin. No need for vacuum cleaner bags. Obviously this doesn't take the place of a larger vacuum needed for large areas, but is great for quick clean up.

            Portable batter hand vac.
            This is a portable battery powered hand vac which can use your existing Ridgid batteries and charger. Although I've not tested it yet, with 2ah or 4ah battery, I expect this will have a long run time. Suction is ok and it comes with a two stage filter. It also comes with three attachments. One is a very long tip (at least for this size vacuum, one is a "corner tool," and one is a wide nozel (see photos of all). I have a good number of Ridgid tools and have been happy or very happy with each. This one seems to miss the mark a bit in terms of suction power. While I'm happy to have something which integrates with the Ridgid batteries, I would like this to have more "pick up power."

            Excellent addition to my Ridgid Tool Inventory
            I opted for this handy battery-operated hand vacuum because I can keep this in the trunk of my car and have it readily available for those occasional spills from gardening supplies and the usual dirt and gravel from your feet, especially on the driver’s side. I use it in the apartment for the occasional crumb clean up. Very powerful but comes with a price – very noisy. Much louder than the 10 gallon shop-vac I no longer own due to space for storage. I use the batteries and charger from previous Rigid 18V tools that I own. The vacuum is well balanced with battery in place and includes and extension wand, utility nozzle, crevice nozzle, and crevice clip and operator’s manual. Battery and charger are sold separately. Lifetime Service Agreement with Registration within 90 days. Rated only 4 star due to high noise level
