Is there a cover for the blowing port on the 9 gal vac ?

Asked by Eddie b 57 June 5, 2020
2
Answers

Hello Eddie b 57, Thank you for your inquiry about our products. No, there is no cover for the blowing port as it should be open during operation. Covering it may strain the motor and cause it to burn out. Having said that, we have an optional muffler/diffuser VT2525 that can be connected to the blower port. It reduces air noise of the vac by about 10 percent and deflects the air coming out of the blower port. It’s available at Home Depot stores or online at www.homedepot.com or store.ridgid.com. 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

Love this vacuum. One design flaw.
Customer review from logo
This vacuum is fabulous but it does have one design flaw. Let me start by saying, the wheels has slots to put your hose extensions and its various attachments. This works alot better than I really expected because they stay put. Second, I use this vacuum ALOT. Now for the design flaw. The attachments fit in the wheel slots but they have to be taken off the hose to store out of the way. I have limited space and it has a huge footprint unless taken apart. I would love to be able to just stick that extension still attached to the hose into the wheel slot and carry on with making a bigger mess. Unfortunately, I have to take the hose extensions off, store those onboard then try to get all the cords and hoses positioned out of my way. Only to use it again in less than a half hour. This issue could be easily resolved by switching the sizes of the extension to fit in the wheel slots. I

Good vac, power cord is annoyingly too short.
This is a decent vac. Works well enough but the power cord is very short. Why couldn’t they charge a dollar or two more and provide a longer power cord. It’s also very loud and my ears are ringing after using it. This vac uses the smaller hose. I was able to use the larger hose from my other Ridgid vac that only lasted a year and a half of light duty Homeowner use. Hope this one lasts longer.

This is honestly one of the WORST Ridgid vacuums I've ever owned, and I have like 7 of them. I'm a huge Ridgid fan and most of my power and hand tools are Ridgid, but this was a huge disappointment. The despite being only 0.75 HP less than my 12gal-5hp Ridgid, this thing performs TERRIBLY. I used an airflow meter and measured a velocity of 64.7 MPH at end of the hose connected to the NXT. I then used the same hose and the same filter in the exact same configuration on the older 12gal/5hp vac and measured 118.6 MPH. THIS THING HAS LESS THAN HALF THE VELOCITY of the other Ridgid vac in the exact same scenario. HORRIBLE. Additionally, it is LOUD. Using a decibel meter on the A-scale, i measure a max of 90.8 dBl on the older unit. This newer NXT model screams at 99.9 dBL. If know you know how decibels work, it's a logarithmic scale, so 9 points higher is nearly TWICE as loud!!! Twice a loud and HALF the velocity, it's like all the power is being used to run a noise generator. And what's worse, the tone of the sound is higher pitched and harder to ignore, while the older model was much more mellow. This thing is terrible. Returning it immediately for an original style Ridgid that has more suction and less noise.

Response from RIDGIDDecember 19, 2018
Hello Bert, We're sorry to hear your review on this product. First, thank you for your review of our product and the feedback you’ve provided. The best feedback we can get from our customers is going to be constructive in nature, and while your opinion is very important to us, we disagree with some of your findings. We’ve spent thousands of hours designing and redesigning this latest generation of vacuums and to compare a new 9 gallon machine to an older generation 12 gallon machine can be misleading, in that every size machine is designed to different user requirements, and based on these requirements different sized motors, different hose sizes, and differing accessories based on the most common jobs to be performed are included with each machine. Our smaller machines (6 and 9 gallon) are designed and optimized for a smaller, 1-7/8” diameter hose due to their limited drum capacity. Since the hose is a smaller diameter, it is more difficult to have a large volume of air, so the performance curve is tipped to higher inches of suction and lower CFM. The opposite is true for the 12/14/16 gallon units that we make. Due to the larger capacity tanks, those units were designed for higher CFM, so that the drums could be filled up quicker with debris than they could with the smaller diameter hose. The larger hose can also pick up larger debris due to the larger hose size. As for the performance metrics you provided in your review, based on the pictures provided, we're afraid you are not using Industry standard test procedures to calculate the air performance (ASTM F558-17) or the noise power (ASTM F1334-14) of the machines you compared, nor are you using the proper anemometer, or a proper noise room to calculate the sound power equally between the two. We also don’t know the condition of the calibration on the equipment you used. We understand why you might have used the same size hose for your testing, but these machines are not intended to use the same size hose and will perform better, in the real world, using the hoses for which they were designed. When the proper anemometer is used, based on industry standard test procedures, the duct (hose) size is taken into consideration and our testing shows that, with the supplied hose, our vacuums moved 5533 FPM for the HD0900 and 6148 FPM for the WD1270. Additionally, sound power readings on equipment similar to the piece you used are completely dependent on the vacs orientation, hose position, microphone location, and surrounding materials. These variables alone can easily change the reading by 10 dB A or more. When this test is run under controlled conditions as described in industry standard test procedures we received results showing 76.8 dB A for the HD0900 and 72.9 dB A for the WD1270. If you have further questions, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 or you can send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

GREAT VAC. Bought in June, 2018. This NXT version 9-gallon vac has very good suction for its size. The 1-7/8" hose & accessories are much easier to handle than the 2-1/2" hoses & accessories of bigger vacs. Nice flexible hose ends. No more fighting with the hose when cleaning your car or tight spots. Easy-rolling swivel casters lets it follow you with no tugging effort. Tight fit between upper & lower sections for better suction. Nice big On/Off switch. Pretty good blower, too! Best feature is that this very compact, lightweight and powerful vac uses FULL SIZE filters, not the smaller vacs' shorty filters that clog up fast. I use a filter bag inside mine for car & general household cleanup so my filter NEVER clogs up! This NXT is a little pricey but good value for all but the toughest jobs. The only shortcoming of this vac is its 10-foot power cord - it's too short! It needs to be 15-20 feet minimum. You need an extension cord for this vac.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Easily assembled in “snap-together” fashion (except for the carry handle, which is attached with screws), this vacuum will satisfy the needs of many users who need a utility vacuum with the capability to vacuum up the occasional water spill or leak. With a 9 gallon capacity this is smaller than some shop vacuums (a plus if you are short on space) but adequate for most clean up chores. If picking up liquid in amounts that exceed 2 inches in the bottom of the drum, it is recommended to remove the filter to prevent soaking it. The ten foot long power cord (double insulated, two blade plug) and the seven foot long hose will minimize the need to use extension cords. Provision is made to store wand extensions and accessories on-board, at each of the caster locations. Winding horns are incorporated into the carry handle for storing the power cord when not being used. The rocker-style on/off switch is easily operated even if wearing gloves. At each end of the hose is a “dual-flex” section for additional flexibility while an integrally molded clip retains the hose to the vacuum which is referred to as a “tug-along” feature. In addition to the carry handle on the top of the vacuum (which provides for a well balanced load), there are molded hand grips on each side of the drum to easily handle a fully loaded drum of, for example, dirt or sand. The vacuum is supplied with the above mentioned hose, three wand sections, a utility nozzle and a wet pick-up nozzle. Other nozzles are available, but not supplied with the unit. When used to clean out the accumulated dirt on and under an automobile floor mat, the lack of a crevice tool (using only the hose end or the wand) made picking up dirt from between the ribs of the mat difficult. To use the vacuum to collect saw dust from my miter saw, it was necessary to secure the hose end to the discharge port with painter’s tape…a short section of hose used as a coupling will be a permanent solution. Sawdust collection was effective and, after finishing using both suction and the blowing mode, the little remaining sawdust was removed. (After using it in the blowing mode, it’s probably a good idea to immediately connect the hose back into the suction port…especially before one tests the vacuum ability to pick up water). Putting the hose in one inch of water in the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket and turning on the vacuum resulted in removal of all the water in less than 10 seconds. With the supplied wet pick-up tool, vacuuming up water on a floor should go well (noting the possible need to remove the filter if a significant amount of water is being picked up). The pleated paper filter element is secured to the power head with the “Quik-Lock” stud mating with the elastomeric filter plate. The positive side of this is there are no metallic retaining screws to rust, however, with frequent removal and reinstallation one must take care not to damage the filter. The filter can be cleaned by tapping or, in severe cases, by washing (and thoroughly drying). A float assembly is provided which will, if the fluid level in the drum is excessive, block the suction port and indicate the need to empty the drum. Although a deflector is provided to minimize direct impingement on the filter, there was preferential loading up of the filter noted in the area near the suction port. As the power head/cover can only be installed in one orientation, the same portion of the filter will always be in the same location (unless on rotates the filter occasionally), though I would imagine that once one portion of the filter loads up with dust, the air will seek out the more open sections until they too are loaded up with dust. A lifetime warranty is provided against material defects and workmanship should any problems manifest themselves. In summary , while its light weight may require more care to avoid damage when using, that light weight, along with the carry handle make this an easy unit to move about. If a crevice tool had been included and a flexible coupling for mating with saw dust ports and additional star would have been appropriate. If only needed for cleaning up an unexpected flood, this vacuum would be a useful addition to a homeowner’s tool crib.

(What's this)
I like Rigid products. Great warranty and they perform well also. I especially like this one. I use lots of bench top power tools. They are practical and inexpensive for the do-it-yourself woodworker. However, they all have these very small dust collection ports. Conventional vacuum hoses do not fit. But, this Rigid 9-gallon vacuum does have a hose that fits…almost. It is close enough. As you can see by the attached picture the fit is not perfect as it fits inside the port instead of on the outside. But, alI it needs is a piece of duct tape to make one loop around the connection, if needed. I have not previously found something that would work so all my benchtop tools have been spewing dust all over the place. This cuts down on almost all of it. For me this is well worth it. Of course, it is also great of floor cleanup but that is not my primary use for it. I do not use it in the house. It is strictly a shop tool. Well worth the money for me. It also has grooves on the legs that hold the accessories. Nice touch.
