Batteries.      How long do they last.     On my shop vac.    It’s about 20 minutes.  

Asked by Ton Ton November 20, 2020

Answers

Hello Ton Ton, Thank you for asking. The run time of the vacuum depends on the battery installed. For example, with one 9Ah battery, the vac may run for 27 to 31.5 minutes and 54 to 63 minutes with two 9Ah batteries. If you have additional questions, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

How do I change the filter??

Asked by iamron November 19, 2020
2
Answers

Hello iamron, Thanks for asking. To remove the filter, Hold the filter tabs of the Qwik Lock™ filter in each hand.. With one thumb on the Qwik Lock™ stud, which protrudes through the integrated filter plate, lift up on the filter tabs while pushing down on the stud. This action will cause the filter to release from the filter cage. Slide filter off cage. To install it back, Carefully slide the Qwik Lock™ filter over the filter cage and press down on the outside edge of the filter until the rubber gasket on the bottom of the filter seats securely around the base of the filter cage and against the lid. Align the small center hole in the top of the filter over the Qwik Lock™ stud on the filter cage. Press firmly on top of the filter near the stud to allow the filter to snap over the ball on the end of the stud. You may 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 we'll be glad to assist you.

Hhaving problems with caster/caster foot assembly. Directions difficult to follow.

Asked by Cathy79 November 18, 2020
2
Answers

Hello Cathy79, Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry for the inconvenience. On the bottom of the caster foot there are two holes, one in the nipple or stem that slides in the vac and the other in the near center of the foot. The center hole (looks like a spider web) is the hole that the wheels go into. We suggest that you try to assemble the caster and foot first before attaching the foot to the bottom of the drum so that you can apply more pressure by pressing it against the floor as you go. If the caster foot is pre-installed to the bottom of the drum, you can remove it first by stepping on it while lifting the drum up. Once removed, insert the metal stem of the caster into the caster foot, try to rotate and push it in at the same time with your whole body weight into it. When you hear a clicking sound, it is the sign that the wheel is already locked in place. You may also use a rubber mallet to make sure you attached it thoroughly. If you have further questions or concerns, you may call Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or email us at info@ridgidvacs.com Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support

I have I had mine for about a year. I think I bought it at Home Depot.

I bought this vacuum a couple of years ago and haven’t had a problem until recently. It seems to have lost suction. I change the filter cleaned out the tank and check the hose. When I attach a different hose it seems to work a little better but not great

Asked by Bridget November 10, 2020

Answers

Hello Bridget, Thanks for writing us a review and we’re sorry to have learned your disappointment. There are number of reasons why your vac may have reduced suction power. We recommend that you check the following: Make sure that the float is freely moving, and the power head is properly seated on the drum. Lastly, check the hose's condition to make sure there are no holes or tears on it. If you need further assistance, you may 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 we'll be glad to assist you.

Just like a corded vacuum!
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
I've had this for about 4-5 months now and I love it. It's real nice to not have to plug it in so the time. That said, I do wish that it was a hybrid that gave an option to plug it in, cause I don't always have available batteries with enough juice. Also, get yourself a couple 9Ah batteries. They give it more power and they last A LOT longer! I ended up buying 4 9Ah batteries so I can keep rotating them. It makes a world of difference compared to the 4Ah batteries that I started off with, with this vacuum.

Lightweight and portable
Customer review from ridgid.com logo
This vacuum is great for portability and movement. The fact there are no cords helps you get around and do your job without getting tangled up. Two things it could use as upgrades is a drain plug and an option to plug in if the battery drains. I bought two 9AH batteries so I never really run out. This vacuum is a revolutionary item to have in your tool shed/garage.

Yes, this filter worked perfectly. No fine debris exiting the vacuum. By fire debris, I'm talking thin set that we busted up and sheet rock dust from our remodel. The first filter worked poorly, where this captured everything that was missed making for a nice clean work space to complete painting and putting down new wood plank ceramic tile.

I bought a new RIDGID wet/dry vac in 2011 and just recently changed the filter and bag. I decided on buying the more expensive Allegen pleasted paper filter because I am going to sand drywall and I needed the extra filtration. This filter does a fantastic job. With the basic paper filter like the one that came with the vacuum, dust would come out of the exhaust port. But now, no dust at all. And the new paper bag filter works great also. It is definitely work the money. Recently I bought a new WEN 6301 Electric Detailing Palm Sander. This replaced my old Black & Decker Mouse sander. The WEN has a vacuum port and I didn't particularly care for this when I bought it, but it ended up being a great addition because I am able to attach the RIDGID flex hose onto the WEN sander port. It's not a perfect fit, but that doesn't matter. Yesterday, I sanded for two hours and easily 99% of the dust from sanding the drywall was picked up by the vacuum hose. I attached a picture. If you look at the floor, there is hardly any drywall dust. Normally, I would have to vacuum the edges, but in this case, there wasn't any to vacuum.
