Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I gave away my first one and realized how much I missed it so I ordered another. It is perfect for those jobs where a heavy shop-vac is impractical to use. It does tip easily and the hose should be replaced with a longer version. I can carry it up ladders easily and it is perfect for cleaning a vehicle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Vac works good, has pretty decent suction and run time with a 4ah battery. Vacs out the complete cab and bunk of hiway tractor or crew cab truck on one charge. The only minor downside is the battery cover door clip doesn't hold the door closed very well. Good carry handle, Light to carry, nozzle and brush tool handy, filter and tank easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shop vac there EVER Was ...seriously! So many things to say about this but hands down the easiest, most portable shop vac there ever was. Each one of our building crews have them and it keeps our sites totally clean! If we could white label it we would give it out as the most useful Christmas present there ever was

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size for manoeuvrability. Good power in a small package. My only complaint would be the crevis tool is too big to get into small nooks and crannies (eg. Car cleaning), and it should come with an exhaust defuser otherwise the exhaust is spreading the dust around that you haven't got around to vacuuming yet. True, you can purchase muffler/defuser extra for $18, but seriously??? I hooked on a shoulder strap from my gym bag and vacuumed the gutters after having the roof reshinged and it worked great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This small wet & dry shop vac is great on our sailboat Light weight and very compact, this is perfect on our boat, we use it to clean our boat on dry mode and some time to dry our bilge on wet mode. Lot of capacity in wet mode but limited capacity in dry mode as the dry bag got very limited space in the vacuum cleaner due to the EPA filter size. Otherwise, a great product, Il will buy a greater capacity RIDGID shop vac for my work shop.

Vacuum Bag

I own the Rigid WD1450 vac and love it. Was looking for a portable unit as well. Does this smaller vac have an option to use vacuum bags in addition to the filter. I prefer to use the bags in addition to the filter when picking up drywall dust. Thank you.
Asked by: BrianH
No, the internals of this vac are small, maybe the addition of a foam filter may help. I saw no options for a bag.
