Rated 3 out of 5 by from I still like Ridgid products but..... The hose is very stiff and not easy to use, the wand is jointed and feels like it's going to come apart. When you move the vac and set it down dust etc falls out around the lid. Not sure why this is, all my tool purchases in the last few years have been Ridgid and I've been very pleased. Not so much with this vac

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Returning it, very low vacuum power. Connected to my chop saw to suck up what it was cutting so as to not make a mess, did not. Going up one size in vacuum to see if that will work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Love this product. It is exactly the right size for average household needs for bulk cleaning in the garage, basement, patio, etc. I really like the bag for dry vacuum - awesome addition!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent vac for the price Great value. I was disappointed that I had to purchase filter bags and normal attachments separately which come as part of the vac system in most other brands. Including those items and increasing the cost would still be a good value. The performance of the vac is more than sufficient for my needs.

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 ?

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".
