I purchased a RIDGID4 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Portable Shop Vacuum with accessories. The hose is not flexible at all and constantly pulls the vacuum into me as I move around. I plan on returning it unless you have a flexible hose to use on it.

Excellent build quality. I am using this hose with an older RIDGID vac and a dustopper from Home Depot. Fittings are exactly what was needed to connect vac to dustopper and dustopper to equipment.

Make sure to check your box contents before buying. When I got home I quickly noticed that the hose end coupler with the orange latch that allows you to connect this hose to another hose was missing from the box. Now I have to go back to Home Depot and explain to them that this end piece was missing from the box. Some one had opened the box and replaced the missing coupler with a 2 1/2 inch to 1 7/8 inch adapter. They only had two boxes on the shelve and both were opened. Since I'm in a wheelchair I had a store employee check to make sure all the pieces were in the box, and since there were 3 connectors and a hose he assured me "Yup, the picture on the box shows 3 end pieces and a hose". Not really a Ridgid problem but a Home Depot problem.

I'm using this hose on my 15yo 12 gallon Rigid Wet Dry Vac. This hose is not as adapable for older models as the packaging implied but doable. Also, unable to take advantage of the Tug-A-Long locking feature. Hose looks strong & should last for another 15 years. Good ext for existing hose.

Matched up well with my 14 gallon Ridgid shop vac. The fittings also matched the Dust Deputy and the swivel collars on the hose keep the hose from tangling while vacuuming.

What happened to the hoses?
My Rigid 2 in 1 Blower/Vac has been awesome over the years. The only thing wrong is the hose kinks at the inlet to the head of the vac and reduces the efficiency of the vacuum. I went to buy a replacement and cannot find a 2 1/2” diameter hose anywhere, they are all smaller and adapt “up” (????) to 2 1/2”. I need to find a replacement hose or get a different brand, I will not move backwards
