Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s not hype, it’s just a great vacuum! I’ve been trying to find a unicorn; a portable shop vac with a lot of suction power. Enter Ridgid! I’ve been extremely happy with other products of Ridgid’s and numerous friends have their vacuums as well. I took the plunge. I only regret that I didn’t get one sooner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vacumm you can hear the power of this small shop vac. don't need a big machine since they are harder to move,store and transport. This unit has great suction power with low noise level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little machine with a lot of power. Love it. The only problem is that I bought a carpet floor attachment with a brush. It was with all the other attachments in the store and salesman said it has an attachment and should fit .... I can't get it to fit on this vacuum. Do you have an attachment that would work with the floor brush and my machine? It is an important feature for me. Otherwise, it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great small vac Bought this vac to use as a dedicated vac to clean out my pellet grill. Plenty powerful enough for that but it could also be used as a small vac to clean up messes around the house, clean out the car, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum, Small Footprint I'm a carpenter/ contractor in Toronto and this vacuum is great for my needs. It has a lot of power and suction to pick up heavier debris. In the city where most houses are 2-3 floors plus basements, it's not a pain to haul up and down stairs even when it's full. I really like that it has a long power cord, I don't usually have to unplug it at all or grab an extension cord to clean an entire room. Also with the larger rear wheels, you can pull it right over obstacles without it getting snagged. It's also handy to have the accessory bin attached. Overall a well designed tool. Many colleagues also have this model vacuum. It just works.

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Sounds like you've got something blocking the hose. If you attach the hose and the motor changes to a higher pitched sound you've got a blocked hose.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
