U need 2 upgrade the included standard VF4000 filter 2 the HEPA VF6000 Green colored filter OR use the Cleanstream Gore HEPA Pro filter AND Casa Vacuums HEPA Collection Filter Bag VF3503 for best filtration & vacing results. The standard VF4000 filter won't filter concrete dust because concrete dust is extremely fine dust

Yes, I've had no issues using this in my wood shop. I do take the filter out once a week and blow it out with my air compressor.

Can I vac dry and wet in one go? Will it damage the filter?

You probably can pickup a little moisture with the all purpose filter that comes with the unit, but Rigid recommends a wet filter for wet pick up. They can be purchased on line or wherever Rigid vacuums are sold

I would strongly recommending using a filter bag. Also keep the filter in place to back-up the bag. The design prevents generic bags from being used, you have to buy the Ridgid bags.

Hello, Our RIDGID wet/dry vacuums can be used to pick up dust. However, we cannot comment on this particular setup to be done because we cannot fully understand the equipment, condition, and hazards it may introduce. Moreover, we do not have an attachment available to connect to the router fence. If you have further questions about the vac, 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.

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...
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.
