          Useability of this model is dependent upon the physical nature of the debris to be picked up. The following materials were trapped in the following points with the first (only) 1-2 gallons collected: cedar deodara needles at the Transition from Hose to Wand Nozzle Transition to Hose Star jasmine dried leaves at the Transition from Hose to Wand Nozzle Transition to Hose Air Flow Diverter inside the drum I sent these observations to Ridgid. I returned the 6 gallon model I purchased the 10 gallon model which also had Ed in Cupertino cedar deodara needles trapped at the Transition from Hose to Wand. I could manage most of the clogs by picking up only a few needles at one time.

          I Like it, compact and light weight, easy to carry. Strong suction, Nice storage holders for all of the accessories. Many accessories available for the Ridgid Vac's. I also purchased the VT1720 1 7/8 hose extension kit. Overall seems like a nice vacuum.

            the vac works ok but there are a number of design improvements that could be made. a) it feels top-heavy and easy to pull over b) the stainless steel container, is no big 'feature' plastic works just as well and may even be more robust than the gauge used on this machine. c) the power cable gets stowed on the handle with is not very long. It would be much better to wrap it around the circumference of the machine itself. d) the hoses feel cheap and the straight tubes are a bit short for a tall person. e) the dry vacuuming attachment is rather narrow, only 7" wide so one has to do a lot of work to clear a large area. See picture showing the swath through sawdust. I may use the water head as it is wider though not ideal. This may make a good machine for connecting to a power tool as a dust extractor.

            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.

            Looks great, left wanting a little more
            OVERALL: Stainless tank looks great. Nice power for size. Size is nice, easy to store. Wish there were more/better attachments. Two section wand a little short. Would be nice if 10' cord were longer. PERFORMANCE: Strong suction. About same as my Ridgid 5.0 HP 12 gallon vac. However smaller diameter hose and inefficient attachments really got in the way of picking up debris. FORM: Taller than my old vac, but about half as wide. Nice handle on top with cord wrap. Liked the lock down clips hold the top on. Wish there was one more section to the wand. 10' cord seems short. ATTACHMENTS: Just 2, a wide mouth and a squeegee one for wet surfaces. Really miss the nozzle and brush attachments that come with most vacuums.

            Very Powerful
            This vacuum has great suction. It has no trouble pick up heavy debris to the smallest dust. It also removes water very efficiently. The cord reel on the top is very well placed and useful. There is only one issue I have with it and that is the air diverter in the tank. If you suck up paper or large material this will plug. It is a bit of a nuisance but overall the vac works great. The tank size is not oversized which makes for very easy empting.

            First this will not replace my in the shop Ridgid 16 gallon,I need the extra capacity there(saw dust,wood chips). Saying that this is a small,powerful package that is perfect for around the house or garage. It has great suction and you cant beat Ridgids filter system,easy on easy off and easy to clean. I have been using my 16 gallon extensively for 3 years in the shop,so i am expecting this one to last just as long.Great quality and i believe it to be a great value based on past experience. Had to put this in,I have a Dog,well actually a chocolate lab and He likes cardboard so this vacuum is in daily use after he helps recycle,this vacuum is really nice.

            Strong Suction But Stainless Steel Tank Dents Easily
            I was in the market for a small Wet/Dry Vacuum for use around the house and decided on the new Ridgid 6-gallon Stainless Steel ShopVac, Model WD64250. This unit has a very strong 4.25 Peak Hp Motor and has very good suction, however, the stainless steel tank is paper thin and dents very easily. Further discussion of the features and performance are discussed below: Tthe Ridgid WD64250 ShopVac has excellent performance with the 4.25 Hp Motor. Most other 6-gallon units have only a 3 Hp motor. It includes a 7 ft, 1 7/8 inch hose, two 20 inch extension wands, and two nozzles, one for water pickup and another for general purpose. It also has a 10 ft electrical cord which is sufficient for most tasks without requiring an extension cord. The main grip I have with the unit is the thin stainless steel tank. The suction valve connection is especially a weak point on the tank and will dent very easily when connecting the hose, or if the unit falls over. It lacks a car carpet cleaning (crevice) nozzle and a brush nozzle for delicate surfaces. The 1 7/8 inch hose is also not a standard size and attachments are not widely available. The new Ridgid 6-gallon Stainless Steel ShopVac performs very well, but the thin steel tank dents very easily. Durability of the tank is questionable!!
