About This Product

Take on projects confidently with the 9 Gallon NXT Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum featuring a specialized RIDGID shop vac accessory kit for different cleaning applications. The RIDGID attachments (DUAL-FLEX hose, extension wands, utility nozzle, wet nozzle, crevice tool and dusting brush) included with this 9 gallon RIDGID wet/dry vac provides a more customized and thorough cleaning. The 3 extension wands extends the overall reach for hard-to-get-to places, the locking hose with DUAL-FLEX offers uninterrupted cleaning through its unique locking technology and the utility nozzle is perfect for cleaning up large areas. When you need more precise cleaning, the included dusting brush tackles delicate surface areas while the crevice tool can reach tight, hard-to-reach spaces. Wet mess? No problem. The wet nozzle attachment is designed to squeegee liquid cleanups so you can handle your next project with ease. All these accessories can then be attached to the included 9 gallon RIDGID shop vac with 4.25 peak HP that is great for home improvement projects and cleanup around the garage and shop. The vac was designed for portability and easy lifting with an ergonomic front-to-back top carry handle and comfort grip drum carry handles. The blower port also allows the vac to double as a blower for leaves, grass clippings and more. Pro Tip: Add a RIDGID filter (VF4000, VF5000, VF6000, VF7000 or VF8000; sold separately) to a RIDGID shop vac to maintain the power of the vac and extend vacuum life.

Questions & Answers

Q:Can vacuum Rigid model HD 09001 use Rigid car cleaning kit model VT2534? Not finding hose adapter to connect 1-1/4" cleaning kit hose to 1-7/8" vacuum hose. Lots of vacuums with 1-7/8" hose sizes!
by|Mar 3, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello Jimmy, Thanks for your inquiry about our product. Yes, the VT2534 kit will fit the HD09001 model. The orange hose of the VT2534 will fit directly into the suction port of the vac. Note that the accessories in the kit will only work with the orange hose. If you need to use them with the original hose of the vac, a separate adapter will be required. About extending the hose, you may also connect the orange hose directly to the end of the original black hose without any adapter. 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 Thanks, RIDGID

      Q:What filter and bag for model wd09450
      by|Feb 28, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Ridged, Thank you for your inquiry about our products. We do not have an available filter bag for older model vacuum that have the inlet port of the hose on the lid of the vacuum, such as the vacuum model you have WD09450. Moreover, depending on what you are planning to pickup, there are 4 types of filters that you can use with your vacuum. For standard or typical basement or garage dirt, you can use the VF4000. For fine dust, such as drywall or cement dust, you must have the VF5000. We also have a filter made of HEPA rated material known as VF6000. This filter is best recommended for picking up pollens and allergens. Lastly, we have VF7000 foam filter specifically designed only for liquid pick-ups or water-borne debris. These filters are regular items at the Home Depot stores. You can also order online at 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

            Price of replacement filters and accessories is exorbitant
            This shop vac works fine, but I have to say that the price of compatible replacement filters (both dry and wet) is way too high for what you get. Note that it only comes with a dry filter, so you'll need to buy a wet filter separately. The shop vac itself is pretty cheap, but they are really out to milk you dry with all of the extra filters and bags that you have to buy afterwards.

                We purchased the RIDGID Dusting Brush and Crevice Tool Accessory Kit because we needed to vacuum in-between the deck grates we constructed for our 20 foot LOA, 8 foot Beam, ply on frame/fiberglassed wood boat we're building in our back yard. The brush is for the interior hull planks and the crevice tool fits between the wood slats of the deck grates. Both are also used to do general vacuum duty after we sand the interior and hose down the entire hull. Highly recommended for vacuuming hard to reach areas whether these places are on your boat or your home.

                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 RIDGIDDec 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
