Rated 5 out of 5 by mjs4393 from This shop vac is awesome. This is the first Ridgid shop vac that I've purchased. It's compact easy to maneuver and has a decent suction on it. I have slowly been switching all my tools to ridgid. It's going to take a long time as this is only my third or fourth tool but I am very pleased with the ridgid line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kb1985 from Confusing registration and hose problems The performance of this vaccuum is perfect but there's a different site to register the product which is really confusing. I have all of my other tools registered on a completely different site but I wasn't able to register the vacuum there. The other problem that I have is finding a hose attachment that works with my DeWalt miter saw. A gentleman at Home Depot walked me through what I needed and I went home and the attachment doesn't fit at all. Hopefully I can go back and get the correct hose this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaniGirl from The 6 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac is the perfect size to haul from job to job hassle-free. My 6 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac is perfect for hassle free hauling from job to job and for storage. The only con to this vacuum is I occasionally find it somewhat difficult to detach the accessories from the hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by v8coupe from Well built, easy to operate, and works well. Very satisfied, would buy again. Competitively priced and meets all requirements to perform the duties I use it for. The staff at Home Depot was great. I remember the lady who explained features of the different models was very well informed. Her name was Rachael. Her professional manner and knowledge inspires confidence and she made you feel welcome to shop Home Depot.

What is wrong with the plowing feature?
I have been unable to find any information elsewhere. I have this model and it has been great this past year but recently every time I turn on the vacuum, it sucks (like it's supposed to) and it blows air from the blowing port. How can I fix this problem so only one of these features works at a time (separately)?
Like all vacuums, the blower motor, which creates vacuum, must have a way to remove the air from the canister in order to pick-up material. The "exhaust" port on your vacuum, in the last few years, has been engineered to be used as a "blower" when the suction hose is attached. The filter, we use the micron filter that is available, must be installed and will produce almost perfectly clean air to push item or dirt across any surface. So the blowing out of air at the exhaust port is normal. If it's not blowing strongly, the filter is in need of replacement or cleaning. Most filters can be washed and dried and reused several times. You must always be aware of the direction of the discharge air in order to prevent make a larger "mess" to clean up.

Using the 6 Gallon Vacuum Cleaner
I'm planning to buy a vacuum cleaner that utilizes water only as filter. I do not wish to use any dust bag or paper filter anymore as dust particles accumulate on the exhaust portion and when you turn on the unit, you can see dust particles being emitted into the air. Is the 6 Gallon WDO671EXO fit for continued performance in the house using water alone as filter? TIA.
I have never used water as a filter. I do know that I have used it when there was only water and I didn't have the dust. It is good to use a filter so all that dust and stuff doesn't get inside your machine.

Hi i have the 6 gallon vacuum 22.5 liters and i would like to know if there's a way of reducing the load noise from the vacuum
Yes, but you'll probably waste your money.

How do you get the filter off? I've tried twisting the knob at the bottom, I don't want to break it!
It simply PULLS off.
