Does this affect the suction power of the Vacuum?

I am trying to use 20 feet of extension wands on the other end and wondering if this should be removed to get better suction from a long range.
Asked by: ACss
This is a muffler. This muffler will restrict exhaust air flow from this wet/dry vacuum. (internal back pressure). Your Test #1: No suction hose connected to vacuum and no muffler/diffuser connected to vacuum. Turn on vacuum and test suction by placing hand over intake. (100% suction). Your Test #2: Connect supplied suction hose to vacuum and also connect muffler/diffuser to vacuum. Turn on vacuum and test suction by placing hand over suction hose. (maybe around a 65% suction?). My Test #3: Connected 20' foot hose to vacuum and also connected muffler/diffuser to vacuum. Turned on vacuum and tested suction by placing hand over suction hose. (maybe around only a 10% suction?). My Test #4: Connected 20' foot hose to vacuum and no muffler/diffuser connected to vacuum. Turned on vacuum and tested suction by placing hand over suction hose. (maybe around only a 65% suction?). Actual Testing Result: While I was doing testing with the muffler/diffuser connected to vacuum, at one point the internal back pressure inside the vacuum was so high, that it blew off the muffler/diffuser from the vacuum unit.

Will this work with a Ridgid WD4070 and if so how far would it stick out from the vac?

Does it look out of place/bad sticking out of the side of the vac?
Asked by: Mike
Yes and where the black clip is is where it'll clip to the vacuum, so half the overall length roughly from what's stated in the specs.

In my opinion, this item does not reduce noise at all. After I bought it, i ran my 14 gal shop vac with it on and with it off. I put it on and took it off multiple times and the noise was no different, at least My wife, adult son and myself could not tell the difference. Save your money. Also, if anything, this item gets in the way more than adds any value.

Nevertheless it is useful and worth buying if you have your vac on for a long period. I have used it with both the WD1680 and the Smart Cart. You can hear the impact on both. IMHO, it's worth spending the extra on the Smart Cart if you don't plan to wear hearing protection.

Works great as a Diffuser....a Muffler it is NOT. I really couldn't tell the noise difference between it with it in or out. Sooo, if you want to buy it to make the vac quiter, don't bother. If you want to buy it to keep the jet of air from blowing everything all over the place in close quarters, then it works great for this application. So, would I recommend this product? As a Muffler....NO; As a Diffuser...YES.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more blowing things around behind you I bought this because I was tired of accidentally blowing things off the workbench behind me while vacuuming. This corrects that issue easily. It also has the added bonus of making the vacuum slightly quieter. The overall noise is only a bit less, but it makes a larger difference when you're in a smaller enclosed space as it seems to significantly reduce echo/reverberation. I have it on my the 9 gallon Ridgid vacuum (1-7/8" hose) . The adapter is not required. You'll need the adapter for the 2.5" hose models, which I believe is anything bigger than the 9 gallon model.

I must have had a shopper's weak moment. Just pass this up and safe your $15 bucks. I returned this. My shop vac still sounds exactly the same with or without this Diffuser/Muffler
