Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy, light and portable. It is great for smaller projects for the contractor and home owner. I purchased this vacuum because my larger Ridgid vacuum harder to use on smaller projects. I was very happy with the balance of portability and power, the expandable house, and the price. It is definately my 'go to' vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I wanted for Very good power for a portable 18V vac. did not test durability yet with original power tools battery but my initial purpose for it was to inflate large pool toys and flotation raft since Ridgid inflators are still not available in Canada yet which have done a terrific job and very useful for car cleaning and at the cabin getting two tools in one. Nice and compact, but needed some additional accessories to use as a floor vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent vacuum - lots of power I really appreciate this little powerful vacuum. The only issue I had with it was the hose being so tight and short. It's hard to pull the hose to expand it. Have to carry it to vacuum things that are higher above the floor. It's lightweight so it's not that bad. The sucking power is really good and I'm impressed. Easy to tuck it away due to its small size. The extra accessories are awesome. Highly recommended, Shelley

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little vac You do need to get some accessories for it. It only came with a hose and no extensions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a handy shop vac with good power. Good power and cordless, which means you use it often to good effect. However, battery life is five minutes, good enough for a car interior or workbench clean up. For many uses, you need at least one more battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power and portability... What a convenience!! Not a big fan of unwrapping and rapping tool cords and extension cords or looking for a power source or outlets if there's any around especially when a tool is needed for a quick job.. This machine is powerful enough to do any cleaning job

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful and handy. This is a pretty simple piece of equipment that comes in extremely handy. It’s not ideal for hour long cleanup jobs but I find myself using it off and on throughout the day on a regular basis. Very good power, not too loud, and not too heavy. It doesn’t seem super durable but with the lifetime warranty I’m not concerned. It’s just an all around great tool to have around the shop and even in the house. As far as cordless vacs go, this thing is generally awesome. Very convenient and effective.

Vacuum Bag

I own the Rigid WD1450 vac and love it. Was looking for a portable unit as well. Does this smaller vac have an option to use vacuum bags in addition to the filter. I prefer to use the bags in addition to the filter when picking up drywall dust. Thank you.
Asked by: BrianH
No, the internals of this vac are small, maybe the addition of a foam filter may help. I saw no options for a bag.
