Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I purchased the 6gal unit but realized it wasn't big enough for my use. The 9gal is perfect. The large hose, basin design and motor size all make the unit very powerful. I would like to see more accessories included with the pkg tho.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good recently purchased the vacuum. so far so good. I guess the only question I have is why does the vacuum NOT come with a vacuum bag as part of the initial purchase? You have to spend an added 15.00 for bags.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as versatile as I thought, might be returning it. Mfg failed to include a brush attachment which I find just as useful as the floor attachment, adding additional item cost Also, no 1 7/8 to 2 1/2" hose adapters available. My previous (6 gal Shop) vac had a 2 1/2" Hose opening which provided more options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is a workhorse and it comes with attachments and an extra long hose. This shop vac is raplacing another Rigid that passed away after 12 years of service. This new one works better.

drianage plug size ?

what is recommended to attach a hose or pipe for drainage with my Rigid 9 gal wet/dry vac ? Or what size adaptor ?
Asked by: Bran
the hose size is 1 7/8" diameter exactly
Answered by: DIYmikey
Date published: 2019-03-18

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
