Questions & Answers

how loud is this vacume

Moderately loud

Does it come with a bag or do I have to buy it separately?

Asked by: Lemont
This shop-vac is bagless, so there is no bag to buy. This means that you simply open it and dump the collected trash. This is part of the sustainable design that does not put additional materials into the waste stream. YOU WILL NEED TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT EMPTYING THE COLLECTION BIN.

can i use to vacuum fireplace ashes

Asked by: annie
Yes, but I would recommend using the vacuum bag to do that so all ashes are collected in the bag inside the unit rather than messing up the filter and holding area of the unit.

What is the diameter of the hose? I need it to pick up dry house plant leaves..

Can't tell from the specs
Asked by: bobbyd1959
There are three different hose dimensions on different models of the Ridgid Vacs. The largest Vac has the most suction power and the largest dimension hose which is a 2.5" opening.

9 Gal. 4.25-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 770.

I came home to water running out of my garage, this was puzzling since there is no water outlets in the garage. I opened the garage door and found water pouring out of the ceiling, seems a toilet up stairs decided it was time for a change in flooring. I stopped the water and immediately looked for my old shop vac, of course it was broken. A quick trip to Home Depot and I am the proud owner of a new Ridgid 9 gal. wet vac. It performed like a dream, sucked up 9 gallons in no time flat, I would like to say that was all the water, but 2 more trips to empty it and all that was left to do was start the clean out and call the insurance company. Bottom line is you need this BEFORE it becomes a necessary. Works great, I hope you never have to suck water out of your upstairs.

This shop vac was apparently designed by someone who has never used a shop vac. The absolute stupidest thing on this vac is the power cord. It comes out the front of the unit so you can always be sure to run over it as you progress forward. Also, the short 10 ft length renders it nearly useless without an extension cord. Also stupid is that the exhaust comes out the front to help create a dust storm in front of you. The hose kinks too easily, and the pathetic 6 inch wide nozzle is designed to stay of the floor enough to render it almost useless for picking up dust. You would think someone at Ridgid would test their products to see how they work (or in this case don't work well). Avoid aggravation and chose a different shop vac. Mine is going in the garbage after just one (attempted) use.

Plenty of attachments but not all go together. I wish the hose that came with it was about 2ft longer. Overall its a great buy for your dollar.

I bought this to replace the equivalent size Ridgid model that was 10 years old because it had a noisy worn main motor bearing which I thought would freeze up soon after the motor got wet on several occasions. It looks to me that new model is inferior for these reasons: 1. it has a 5/8 inch smaller diameter (1 7/8 ") hose and attachments which don't fit my existing collection of hoses and attachments. 2. it has flimsy feeling plastic case and catches. 3. I want the old 2 1/4 inch hose with its greater flow rate to fit my Dust Deputy cyclone separator set up. I returned the new model and repaired my sturdy older Ridgid vac.

I use it on tile floors and you have to go over the same areas multiple times in order to pick up any dirt. The angle of the pickup brush forces you to keep the brush handle vertical in order to have any dirt pickup. If you extend the handle out in front of you or put it under a table or chair the dirt pickup is reduced dramatically. The top of the unit has no seal and doesent fit tight so dirt and dust goes out from the lid when running and especially when you shut the unit off. The hoses and fittings are poor and their coiling up as your vacuuming making it difficult to get around. There is no cord holder so it's annoying trying to wrap up the cord for storage. Save your money, don't buy. Spend your money on a well designed quality product that actually works.

It's useless on my pickup's BedRug carpeted bedliner. Useless. A whisk broom is MUCH more effective. It is moderately successful at picking up sawdust on the shop floor but underperforms in proportion to the racket it makes. The fact that the hose doesn't fit any of my shop tools dust ports very well, if at all, even with adapters, is another strike against this product. Maybe a more powerful version of the same brand would earn its keep, but this unit has soured me on the Rigid brand. My tiny little Stinger, also bought from Home Depot, out-performs this model coming and going.
