Questions & Answers

Does this unit feature the blower functions that other vacs claim?

How loud is this vac?

How loud is this vac compared to other Ridgid shop vac models? Can you provide Db measurements? Thanks
Asked by: sgamtl
I can only say, I owned a Shop Vac brand last time around. It lasted several years, but was a VERY, VERY loud shop vac. This Ridgid shop vac, is not near as loud, though more hp. I would say is acceptable. Probably only way to get a more quite clean up is the old fashioned way, a broom and dust pan!

Can this vac effectively handle sawdust collection coming from a table saw dust port? Thanks

Asked by: JerseyGeorge
Hello JerseyGeorge, Thanks for asking! We can't guarantee that this will effectively handle sawdust collection. You may want to consider if the 1-7/8 inch hose of this vac will connect to your table saw. If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'd be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

6 Gal. 4.25-Peak HP Stainless Steel Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 244.

I added weight to cradle and changed casters and it’s better. Had casters here. Pretty good suction but the hose is a piece of junk. If you don’t have replacement and/or upgrade parts laying around prob not the vacuum for you. I thought I paid less than that but can’t be sure.

This is an attractive little vacuum that has good suction and is light enough to carry around. After owning it for several months it looks like new, mostly because I seldom use it. My problem with it is with it's basic design. The center of gravity seems to be somewhere above the top of the motor. That, combined with very small wheels which cannot roll over anything larger than a piece of lint, and a very stiff hose result in the vacuum falling over on a very regular basis. I bought it because I wanted a small vac to use in the garage for the cars but it has found a home attached to my router where it does not have to spend so much time on it's side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Baby shop vac with a frustrating design Price is good and it's shiny with adequate vacuum. That's the end of the good things. This one should not have been stainless because it dents too easily. It would have been better in plastic. The place for the power cord to be stowed is too small to do the job. It's like it was made for a much smaller cord. This cord overflows the holding fingers. See the photo. According to the manual, the handle itself is not supposed to be used unless the vacuum tank is empty. Then, of what real use is it? Wheels are almost useless, The unit will tip over if it is pulled by the hose and there will be another dent for sure.. The hose is too stiff and unwieldy but normal for this price. A good hose can be easily half the cost of this vacuum. The lid does not have a gasket to better seal the vacuum. As it warps over time, it will leak more and the vacuum at the hose will drop. The vacuum force is adequate for most jobs and I found the unit to not be too noisy. It looks good in spite of being dented from the factory. Storage is ok with places on the base to stow the fittings. Can is easily emptied.

Got it home and ALL THE PIECES WERE MISSING!!! The wheels the handle the attachments and the instructions!!! Although they did have an instruction booklet in FRENCH!!! Had to go back to the store the next day and get another one. Opened it in the store and all the pieces were there. Works great but shouldn’t have to shop twice for the same thing!!

Would be nice to have one LONG pipe instead of two short ones that you have to put together. Cleaning is easy and machine is simple to use and assemble (mostly done except wheels/handle/and hoses)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, durable, relatively compact very efficient I purchased this item during a basement reno because of high frustration with another brand. Rigid was recommended by a contractor and hit the mark. Strong reliable suction, convenient attachments, very effective functioning on dry and wet purposes. Would highly recommend this brand / product for others.

It replaces a monster... big guy.The size does a lot, mostly all I regularly do, but without taking up a lot of space, and it's easy to carry around. Shiny steel container cleans up great, whether it's water or sawdust. Inside, outside, it's handy like a bucket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value This vacuum has plenty of power to handle my cleanup needs. I like the stainless steel bucket...it just looks cleaner! The attachment package is a bit weak, not having a tapered nozzle or a brush, but all in all it’s adequate. Looks pretty nice for a shop vac.
