    Q:Will this hose fit a Rigid WD1285 vac?
    by|Jan 15, 2023
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  It fits my older model Rigid vac that looks like this model, with a 2-1/2” hose.

    by|Jan 18, 2023

      A:  Hello Cedar, Thank you for your inquiry about our product. We do not have a vacuum with a model WD1285. Please note that LA2522 hose fits most vacuums with the standard 2-1/2-inch inlet port opening. Thus, if this is the size of the inlet port of your vac, it could possibly fit. If you have other concerns, please call our Customer Service 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 provide the model number of your vac. We'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

        Q:Can 2 - 20? - 2 1/2? hoses be attached together to make a 40? hose?
        by|Jan 14, 2023
        4 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes it has a collar to put 2 ends together 

        by|Jan 16, 2023

          A:  Home Depot sells a Ridgid hose adapter kit for $12 that I think has a 2 1/2" to 2 1/2" hose adapter. Also you might have a small piece of PVC or ABS pipe or coupling lying around with an inner or outer diameter that would work. Or you could just duck tape the ends of the 2 1/2" hoses together. So the answer is yes, it can be done.

          by|Jan 19, 2023

            A:  Yes

            by|Jan 16, 2023

              A:  Yes it can it had attachments to extend them

                      DOESN'T FIT - Plain and Simple
                      Stop posting call customer service. You market this as fitting ALL Rigid Shop vacs and it simply DOES NOT! Why do I have to make an other trip due to your incompetence? Time is money and you have wasted my time so you owe me money. Measurements are wrong, statement that it fits all Rigid Vacs are wrong. Flat out lies. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT.

                          I am using this to attach to my rigid vac in the garage but I don’t want to move the dust collection cart when we use it to clean our cars. I bought this item to provide that reach we were looking for. If you’re hesitating, don’t, just get it. The only thing I’ll say is the box arrived completely destroyed by some third party carrier after they held it at their warehouse for over a week and finally delivered on a holiday. I’ll ship to store from now on even though that can also be a pain.

                          While you're reviewing the description on the website you should review the description on the box because it says the same thing- fits all Ridgid vacs. BTW the description on the website says fits most rigid vacs but it also says fits all Ridgid vacs.

                            If you have an old Rigid Shop Vac, here is the fix to make this hose work with it!
                            I was dismayed to discover this hose does nopt fit older Rigid Shyop Vac. It is not 2 1/2" but 2". I am desperate. I have a large coastal property on a lake and now is the time to sell. I delayed major interior remodeling because it involves a lot of sheetrock cutting, and wood and sheetrock sanding. I ordered this hose and a boatload of the shop-vac liner bags. Was already to work today and discovered this hose does not fit older Rigid Shop Vacs. I am desperat6e and was going to just duck tape this to my old cracked hose so I could work, but while sizing everything up I realized the part of the old hose and new hose where the locking "pull-along" attachment fits are identical in size. OK. This is not easy, and took me close to an hour, but I was able to revove the old connector (easy because I just slashed off the hose) and attachj it to the new hose. Looks and works like brand new, and all my other attachments fit fine. The attached photo shows the end result, and the tools needed. The HARD, TEDIOUS part comes after you saw off the exposed end of the attachment on the new hose. Then you have to VERY CAREFULLY cut out the interior of the attachment part that is inside the new hose. It is critical you not cut the new hose. If you do at this critical juncture it will quickly fail on you. I slowly cut by hand, sliding my carpenter's knife at an angloe between the inside of the hose and the part you are removing. I wore l;eather gloves, as this is a tricky cut to do. I made multiple cuts an inch apart and used the bent needle nose pliers to work it out when I got to the bottom. If you own an old shop vac you are probably an old carpenter like me, and should be able to handle this. Now it is absolutely as good as new. Well, I guess technically it is mostly new! :)

                              I love the extra length of hose to get to places I can't take the vacuum, like around my attic opening, or vacuuming a different room. It came with 3 different attachments. I was hoping to connect 2 of the 20 foot hoses together, but that didn't work. But the 20 foot works good by itself.

                                Better buy than the 13 foot. If you have an older Rigid shop vac like me, mine is a 6.25 from 2001, the connector in the vac is slightly larger than the newer 2.5 inch vac and Home depot or Rigid online don't have the older fitting. I found one on a online parts store. Shame on Home depot.

                                This hose does NOT easily couple into your existing hose giving added length. to accomplish the task, you must leave off one of the pictured hose ends and force couple the large open hose end onto your straight 2 ft. long tube. Else you must use your existing hose for one vacuum port and this hose for the other vacuum port making the vacuum cannister and motor sit in the middle of the two hoses.
