What is the function of the sliding button on the top of the accessory?

Asked by Taz February 3, 2021

Answer

Hello Taz, Thank you for your question! The slide button on top of this particular accessory basically functions as a bleed hole to vary suction for different lengths (piles) of carpet. For any other concerns, please call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

Will it work with cordless vacuums (i.e. Milwaukee, Ridgid or Bosch) which pull around 30 cfm?

Asked by AG January 10, 2020
2
Answers

Hello AG, We're sorry we can't guarantee it will fit other brands. However, it can fit the 1-1/4 inch and 2-1/2 inch hose or wands. As for our RIDGID cordless vacs such as WD0319 and HD0918 that both come with 1-7/8 inch hose, a separate adapter will be needed. You will need to remove the supplied adapter off this VT2571 Beater Bar and use one of the adapters in our VT1755 3-piece adapter kit. If you need any assistance or your have other questions, 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 more than happy to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

How aggressive is this beater bar? Looking for something that will "scrub" my concrete in my basement after I have paint

Asked by Sd December 20, 2019
2
Answers

Hello Sd, We're sorry we can't guarantee this accessory can do the job. This beater bar is driven off of vacuum air flow, thus it may depend on how powerful the machine is. If you have further questions or concerns, 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. Thanks, RIDGID

Does this work with the WD7000. I was not able to connect it.

Asked by SS September 14, 2019
2
Answers

Hello SS, This will work with the original hose of your WD7000 by removing the supplied adapter of the beater bar and buying the VT1755 3-piece adapter kit. The 1-7/8 inch down to 1-1/4 inch adapter from the kit will allow you to use it. If you have further questions or concerns, 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. Thanks, RIDGID

I recently opened up my beater bar and completely disassembled and cleaned it. While My belt didn’t require replacement, I had the belt off and reassembled it exactly as you would during a replacement. It absolutely can be replaced if you have the correct belt. The disassembly wasn’t difficult. I say this as someone who has no mechanical aptitude and found the assembly process to be quite simple and intuitive.

This is definitely not a 1-7/8" connector -- it's 1-1/2"; 1-1/4" (outer; inner respectively). Went out & grabbed a 1-7/8" to 1-1/4" adapter, worked perfectly.

No instructions with unit.
Solid attachment, have yet to put this beater bar accessory into action. Even as straightforward as this appears to use, there wasn't even a simple instruction guide to explain what the slider piece on top of the unit was meant to do (i.e., bare floor vs carpet)? Still not sure how that is supposed to be set to properly use attachment.

The beater brush does a fabulous job on a carpet with uniform depth. For one with an uneven surface (like a textured carpet) it takes the brushes could bee a little longer. But it does work pretty well on the uneven surface.

It's quite expensive - costs as much as the Rigid vacuum itself - but it fits the machine and does what it's advertised for. I wish the 'rug beaters' would be electrical.
