Product Overview

Take on projects confidently with the RIDGID 6 Gallon NXT Wet/Dry Vacuum featuring a specialized RIDGID shop vac accessory kit for more detailed cleaning. The RIDGID attachments (Dual-Flex hose, extension wands and utility nozzle) included with this compact 6 gallon RIDGID wet/dry vac provides a more customized and efficient cleanup. The 3 extension wands extend the overall reach for hard-to-get-to places, the locking hose with Dual-Flex offers uninterrupted cleaning through its unique locking technology and the utility nozzle is perfect for cleaning up large areas. The included 6 gallon RIDGID shop vac is a small, lightweight vac that packs a punch with amped-up power and performance on the inside and a modern look on the outside. This vac has a 3.5 peak HP motor that is great for every cleanup of small-volume dirt and debris. The vac was designed for portability and easy lifting with an ergonomic front-to-back top carry handle and comfort grip drum carry handles. The blower port also allows the vac to double as a blower for leaves, grass clippings and more. Pro Tip: Add a RIDGID filter (VF4000 - sold separately) to a RIDGID shop vac to maintain the power of the vac and extend vacuum life. Add a RIDGID dust bag (VF3501 - sold separately) to the shop vacuum to help keep the wet/dry vac drum clean and for quick pickups.

I bought this shop vac without doing any research, which is completely out of my character. However I was needing a new VF5000 filter for my older Ridged, which is “old” and blows moldy smells— I needed this for our new home indoor projects. I have 4 shop vacs and my older Ridged is my best of all, to include my “very expensive” brand vac, so of course a Ridged is my go-to. When I went to buy a $24.97 filter for my older Ridged, I saw this complete shop vac for $55, so it was a no brainer to me. I bought it and set it up, went to vacuum my concrete floor in my dogs rooms — I just pulled the carpet up and plucked the tack stripes up; which left concrete pieces and tiny nails. Once I fired the new vac up, it was Extremely loud and only picked up 30% of the concrete pieces on the floor,— they were smaller than a dime and thinner than one too. But this vac would “not” pick them up unless I positioned the head piece directly over it and waited 2-3 secs. There was also some small tack nails (that were holding the carpet down) and it wouldn’t pick those up either— even after putting the vac over it. The nails went up (I could feel em rattling in the tube in my hand) but then feel out when I picked the vac up from the floor. When I put the vac to my hand, it “felt” strong but not sure why it wouldn’t grab anything. I had to return this piece and I was really hoping to fall in love with it since I just bought a new home and need something to do random projects without smelling up the house.

    This small Rigid wet/dry vac had simple set up instructions which were accomplished in about 5 minutes. Basically, snap in the caster feet, screw in the handle and you are set. It is a manageable size for storage and home use and has a carry handle for easy movement. The feet have molded storage posts for the extension wands which keep them secure when not in use. Unfortunately, as great as the look and construction of this unit is, I had some issues once I tested it out on my auto mats and interior. I was hoping this unit would be powerful enough to replace my ancient Shopvac but it was rather disappointing. I thought the large diameter of the hose would be an asset but it has insufficient suction for many tasks. There should be an attachment included that narrows the end opening for tight spaces and more concentrated suction. It wouldn't add much to the price and it is definitely needed. I was unable to reach many places in the car's interior and I felt it had mediocre performance. I would opt for a Rigid model with more HP and other attachments. I like the basic design, weight and low noise level but I need more power before I retire my bulky metal Shopvac.

    Hey RIDGID Customer! Sorry to hear that this vacuum didn’t meet your expectations. If you’re needing an attachment that would go into tight spaces, check out the VT1702 (1-7/8” Crevice Tool). Accessories like this usually comes with larger models like the WD18510. If you need more assistance in choosing a vacuum and the right accessories that will best suit your projects, give us a call at 1-800-474-3443 or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com – RIDGID Ridgid

    Love this vacuum! Its squatty design makes it harder to tip over which is great because we all pull shop vacs around by the hose. This vac is super easy to assemble. With the exception of the 2 screws attaching the handle to the top of the unit, everything snaps together easily. I've used it for blowing up inflatables, blowing dust and debris out of the garage, vacuuming up dirt/leaves/trash - damp and dry and it works very well. I took it to work where we have a LOT of chalk dust which normally clogs up vacuums quickly - the vac made short work of the dust without clogging and everyone really liked using it.

    Ridgid raises the bar on economical shop vacuums. The engineers did their best to create a more powerful, more user friendly garage vacuum and keep the price at $50. I believe this is a much improved vacuum over the older Ridgid WD0670. Look for my video summary on YouTube (or below) for an in-depth review of how this vacuum performs. Summary- Pros: • Great Suction. Better than Shop Vac. • Better hose. Nice flexible hose that has larger diameter than most but not too large to be annoying. • Price. Hard to believe you can buy a vacuum for less than a pair of sneakers. You’ll probably still want to purchase vacuum bags (see note below), an accessory muffler, some accessory tools (and possibly HEPA filter) but you’ll still be way ahead. Cons: • Noise. This vacuum is louder than most and you should wear hearing protection for extended uses (i.e. sanding). • Filter Mounting. Ridgid vacs use a tool-less press on filter design that really doesn’t work well. It’s easy to damage the filter taking it on/off and the rubber longevity is questionable. Difficulty increases if the filter is really dirty. Note on the bags. The HD website says this vac uses VF3505 6-9 gallon bags. Box says VF3501 (3-4.5 gallon). I purchase both and found the VF3501 worked best (See Video). The larger 6-9 gallon had to be awkwardly folded to fit in this new squattier canister. About my ratings: 5 stars – Exceeds all expectations. Better than the competition in all aspects, design, cost, operation, and support (A+). 4 stars – Nicely done. Better than the competition and solves the problem. (B) 3 stars – Works as expected. Has some shortcomings but gets the job done. Might be short in design, cost, longevity, or support. (C). 2 stars – Falls short of expectations and needs improvement. Pass and look elsewhere. (D) 1 star – Fails miserably. Does not get the job done, might even make things worse. Someone at the company should be fired. (F)

    Big vacuum in a small package! This little guy really sucks in a good way! Its compact flying saucer design puts the wheel closer inside the diameter of the vacuum rather than outside like previous designs. The cord storage is a feature that has been missing from many other designs. The small size makes it easy to move around. The large power button makes it easy to turn on/off with gloves or big hands. I only wish it came with the crevice attachment. That's all it's missing.
