14 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac

WD1450

This RIDGID® 14 gallon High Performance Wet/Dry Vac is designed to deliver the powerful suction, large capacity, and rugged construction in a more compact design than is offered in our largest cart type vacs. The vacuum’s 14 gallon drum size helps us achieve a more compact overall design but it still provides a big capacity capable of handling large job-site chores. The 6.0 peak HP motor delivers the high performance necessary to handle these chores. Other key features include; a 3-layer fine dust filter captures dry wall dust, accessories are stored on-board, casters provide 360° mobility. Add a top handle with a cord wrap, heavy duty 2-piece drum construction, a large drain and you’ve got a wet/dry vac that achieves the demands of Pro’s on the job site or in the shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well on debris and drywall dust, rolls well, great tools. Have only had this a week, so I can't speak to long term durability, but the performance of the vac has been all I had hoped for. We got a free auto detailing kit with the vacuum, which looks very nice. It also came with the higher end fine dust filter. It is picking up drywall dust like a champ - which is one of the harder things for a vac to do well - we are using the filter bag for that. Overall, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good shop vac for the cost. This is a very good wet/dry shop vac for the price. It seems to have more suction than competitor's similar sized units and seems to be very well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally quiet Bought this unit to help my son clean a mucky unfinished crawl space at his house. We hosed, squeegeed, then vacuumed. This vacuum quickly picked up the muck and other debris without fail. I purchased the wet filter, and recommend it. I could hear small stones and other debris bouncing through the container while in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Flawlessly I purchased the Ridged 14 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac a few weeks ago and it has been everything I need in a Shop Vac. The purchase was fast, easy and the delivery was quicker than I expected. If you're in need of a shop vac, I would suggest you give this one a try.. lifetime warranty is great also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It performs very well to date. I use it everyday for a number of regular vacuuming jobs as well as used in my shop tools to collect and clean saw dust After a great deal of research and reviewing many different machines, I believe that I selected the perfect sized machine to perform the tasks I need it to do. It has handled all the vacuuming jobs that I have given it and has performed very well as a dust collector in my shop. From past experience with RIDGID tool/equipment, I expect that I will not be disappointed with this model selected.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851

Asked by: mkaibel
uhhh...call me lame, but a "decible meter" is NOT a piece of equip. that anyone I know (including myself) would tend to purchase...so I can't answer this question. IF the owners manuel lists the decible level, I'm not about to go fish for that info. Sorry. That's an unusual question to ask a custormer. Decible level? Really?

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.

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.
