Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet Vacuum I bought this Ridgid shop vac to replace my old 3hp Shop-Vac. The Ridgid being bigger in hp and gal is significantly quieter than my old 3hp vac. As a vacuum, I have attached the Ridgid to my dust separator and see a huge, huge, difference in saw dust reduction when using small power tools such as a planer or jointer. I did not rate durability as I only had the vac for a month at the time of this review. However, since my 3hp is about 15 years old and made with similar material I have no doubt that the durability of the Ridgid will be similar if not better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small powerful shop vac Super easy to assemble, very powerful for it's size, the on off switch is ergonomically great, you can't beat the performance for this price. Only gave the durability a four because the caster wheels seem like they may come loose under heavy use since they only snap into place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All in all a good vacuum All in all a good vacuum I’m definitely happy with my purchase. Things I like about the vacuum are good suction it’s quiet the price was good. The four things that I don’t like are the cord rollup fingers just in a weird location and are not big enough. The cord doesn’t stay wrapped up or on the location where it was engineered very well. The wheels are junk cheap too small don’t roll the best. The attachment holder I do not like attachment keep falling off will get hooked on whatever I may be pulling the vacuum around found it was just easier to take off and put attachments in a separate bucket so I wasn’t constantly picking them up. Don’t buy the so-called muffler unless you need an air diffuser which they claim it is also they say muffler diffuser and it definitely is not a muffler my vacuum actually got louder by a couple tenths of a decibel when muffler was installed verifying using a sound decibel app on my phone so save your $13 on the so-called muffler which it isn’t air diffuser yes muffler no.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 14 Gallon wet/dry vac Excellent product, this is my 3rd Ridgid vac, one went bad, but the lifetime warranty says you have to send motor in to company to get your warranty-but you have to pay shipping & your not guaranteed to be covered until they look at it for the cause of not working. Probably cost more to ship & no guarantee that it will be covered. WARRANTY COULD BE BETTER.

can i wet vac with paper filter

Asked by: jerryrusty
It is not recommended. Depending on your use you can remove the pleated paper filter or purchase a sponge type filter that will replace the pleated paper filter.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851

I just bought one of these and the directions say the casters will 'snap' into place, but they do not. They just fall out. Is this right?

Asked by: bkay
No, the casters should not fall out. You may not be applying enough force to get them to snap into place. I had to press pretty firmly with my hand to get them to lock in but once they did, all is well. I do not recommend using a hammer or other tool. That could damage the casters. Do it by hand only and find a helper if need be.

hoses

Will the WD1450 accept standard non locking hoses as well?
Asked by: dresnik
I had an extra hose from my last vac and it fit, but I believe I had to use the 3 piece adapter kit.
