Questions & Answers

Does this little vac also run from 18v battery?

Asked by: JD
take a close look at the photos and the videos on the web site and if you pay attention you will eventually figure out that they are staging the angles in the video and the still shots to hide the CORD on this CORDED appliance. See that nipple looking protusion on the upper left on the photo of the unit just below the handle and next to yellow circle?

Is this a quiet vacuum? If this isn't the quietest shop model, then which one is?

I don't need much power. And smaller is a plus. I have read that Ridgid makes some quiet shop vacs. I need one quieter than others so as to not scare confined animals. Does not even have to be a wet/dry vac: any vac with a hose, but not noisy, is the criterion. Thanks for any help with this.

No, it is very loud compared to similar sized Sh*pvac brand.

3 Gal. 3.5-Peak HP Portable Pro Wet/Dry Vacuum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 922.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only the hose fittings were quality! The power and usability of this vac gets 5 stars. Makes work-site cleanup much easier. A big plus not expected is using as a blower for yard work and sawdust outdoors. I bought a wet/dry filter for water pickup, a must for that because the dry filter gets soggy when wet, and deforms. So get the extra filter if you do water cleanup. The hose blows off the vac when used as a blower. I have to wedge some paper towel to keep the hose on. Could be better. Also the hose has an adjustment to decrease the intake power when the suction is too much, but it does not fit tightly. It should fit tightly. For car or truck cleanup, I got the extra long wand for tight spaces. There's no real provision for carrying more than one attachment, so that's an issue. If you invest in Ridgid tools, then having two of the expensive batteries will not throw you a curve, since you already have a charger! I have their drill and now a circular saw, so all the batteries being interchangable is a plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to Use, Light, Portable, One Quirk Let me start with the quirk - when the top of the unit is snapped down to the canister it is not snug. When you pick it up, the top ever-so-slightly lifts off the canister. This does not noticably impact the suction, which I find to be very good, but I am sure I'm losing a little suction through the small gap. It seems to me that either the snaps are not designed well or there is supposed to be a gasket. I wish it had a gasket. But as I said, it does not appear to materially impact the suction. I bought this because I couldn't deal with lugging my 12 Gal shop vac all over the house and garage for every little job. Too big and awkward. This unit is perfect for the fireplace, the car, kitchen (broken glass), etc. I like the portability the most. And the price. One other thing to note: I bought the bags for it and I cannot recommend them. First, they are not easy to reliably seat on the intake valve. Second, suction is GREATLY reduced when you use them. Better off just using the filter. Otherwise, I'm happy with this unit because of all the small vacs that I considered this one had the best mix of power, portability, and capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design.. Exactly what I wanted to replace my small shop vac which just isn't powerful enough for the way I use it to collect dust as I carve or sand my projects... AND this Rigid, even though is larger then my old on,, is designed perfectly for what I want and need. Fits even better in it's location then the smaller shop vac... It will just sit next to my woodcarving bench for the duration.. The hose is perfect as it doesn't spread all over under my feet..And the suction works much better then my old vac.. I'm extremely satisfied and the price was right..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I purchased this after several members at my department wanted a smaller, more portable shop vac ... I purchased this after several members at my department wanted a smaller, more portable shop vac than the big one we have. As the fleet manager and officer at my police department I know how hard cops can be on equipment. After looking at several vacuums I picked this up due to its light weight and portability. I make our guys keep their cruisers clean and they have been putting this little vac through its paces. The hose is long enough to set the vac on the ground outside the car and still reach all the spots they need to clean. The hose is also made of rubber instead of plastic so it bends and moves easier than the plastic hoses. The only attachment it comes with is great for cleaning cars and the vac has a space to hold the attachment while its still on the hose which is really nice. Suction is powerful and hasn't failed to pic up debris in the cars. It would be nice to have another storage spot on the vac to hold another attachment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A very poor "VACUUM HOSE comes with this vacuum!! I bought this little shop vac about 4 or 5 years ago for cleaning my vehicle. The Vacuum is very portable, light and very powerful. It's easy to clean and easy to store. This vacuum hasn't given my any mechanical problems since I purchased it. My issue is the design of the hose. In the specifications, the hose is supposed to be extendable from 2-7 feet. When using the vac, it's necessary to hold it is one hand or try to lock it between your legs to reach any of the specified distance with into your vehicle from the outside when cleaning the seats or carpets. My son and I, we're both adults, tried pulling this hose to try and reduce some of the stiffness in this hose. It continuously flips onto the side or upside down, causing the float ball to lose suction. I've gone to the store and searched online, but I can't find a more suitable replacement hose. There is a great vehicle detailing set in the larger size hose I would purchase if it was available for the 1 7/8" size to fit this vacuum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The power button Is located On the side vs. Top... The power button Is located On the side vs. Top On Most vacuums. The price Is Too Much for a small amount Of H/P Increase. the idea Of having to Purchase More Items Such as A longer hose For more Money Is insidious . THEN More Funds for a crevice tool And Brush? what attracted Me In the Beginning was More H/P and lifetime warranty . NOW I wish I had Purchased the $35.00 stinger. I am STUCK With this, BUT I DO NOT LIKE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shop vac. Wider than usual hose, means few... Great shop vac. Wider than usual hose, means few things get stuck in it. The hose snaps into a grip on the vacuum. Unit has a nozzle which fits into a pocket on the unit. Excellent suction. Uses a standard filter that is available at Home Depot and easy to remove. Lightweight and easy to move around. Large capacity bucket. Long cord. The only complaint I have it that it's very noisy.
