Rated 4 out of 5 by from has good suction, works well purchased to keep area around my fireplace cleaned up daily. Works well for this task. Did not come with a crevice tool and is the one attachment I needed most...had an old crevice tool that works ok. Hose is on the flimsy side and will kink easily, but works ok. Satisfied with this unit so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from An easy to use product, but not very powerful The vac itself, like every Ridgid vac, was easy to assemble and set up. The power, however, left much to be desired. It had trouble picking up small paint chips from the drywall, and even the dust proved challenging. Perhaps it was the leaks in the hose clamps that prevented its potential from being fully realized. A great disappointment, as I have used Ridgid vacs in the past, and have been quite impressed with all that have come before. I have returned this vac to the location from which I purchased it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rigid 6 gal wet/dry vacuum The Rigid 6 gal wet/dry vac is a perfect size for the homeowner to use in basement shop or garage shop. It has plenty of power and the 6 gal capacity is more than enough. I like the handle cord storage provided. I previously had the 16 gallon Ridgid vac and although more powerful, the motor burned up so I had to purchase a new one and decided on the smaller 6 gal. I was a perfect choice and gets the job done as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is solid and strong. I am not sure durability yet This is my first dry/wet vac/blower. The performance is amazing. Based on RIDGID reputation, durability should be excellent. I enjoy my purchase

I can't seem to get the extension wand to connect to the hose. Is there a trick to this? It just doesn't seem to fit right.

What is the filter mesh size?

What is the smallest particles that it will filter out? Dust, pollen, mold?
Asked by: Scotster
Vacuum comes with a single pleat paper filter VF4000 for large dirt/sawdust size. You can purchase a 3 layer filter VF5000 for dust/drywall dust or a 5 layer HEPA filter VF6000 for pet dander/mold/pollen. The VF7000 is a foam filter for use during wet vacuuming.
