Rated 5 out of 5 by from The down side is that they are not enough attachment. Had to buy attachment separately. Excellent tool for the price. The vaccum is very powerful and not noisy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A week into using the vacuum, everything seems to work well. Too early for a durability comment. Where the two halves (Motor portion, and the collection portion) connect there is a small gap. Next time I go to the hardware store I purchase some foam tape to fill that gap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vac for a niche need This machine works as advertised, but does have some shortcomings. It needs to come with a the extension pipes and dusting attachment. The hose drapes over the top of the machine and is a bit clunky. This unit seems very compact until you factor in the hose, the fact it is plugged in on one end and drapes over the top After purchasing these separately the vac became a bit pricey. The other thing I don't like about this is there is no good way to store any attachments. The two little clips on the top (see photo) are flimsy and a poor effort on RIDGID's part for storage. I was hoping the built-in dust pan feature would work a little better. By the time you get all of the sweeping up off the floor it would be faster to just take the hose out and just vacuum up the sweepings instead of trying to sweep toward the "dust pan." RIDGID makes excellent products, but this particular one does not quite do what I was hoping it would do for me. I was hoping to keep it in the kitchen closet where I could just sweep the floor right into it, but I have to move the vacuum around to get all of the sweepings. The inlet for the dust pan feature needs to be as wide as the entire body of the vacuum to work properly. The opening is only about 4 1/4 wide. It should be about 10 inches. Maybe one day RIDGID will make me a nice looking stand-alone kitchen vac that would look nice standing in the corner. In the photo, the extension pipes and dusting attachment simply will not stay put on top of the unit. My other experiences with RIDGID vacuums is much better than with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine to clean the vechicals My other much larger shop vac finally kicked the bucket and was in a market for a new one. I mainly used it to clean my 3 vechicals and with 3 kids and a dog it's a chore to clean them. The warranty on this is outstanding, talk about standing behind your product with a lifetime warranty,. Haven't had to use it yet and hopefully never have to. The shop vac get everything up even the stubborn pet hair the seems to borrow it way into the fabric. Light weight and super easy to work with .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The vacuum is powerful and compact which makes it very useful. I specifically chose this vacuum for its size which makes it easy to use for small jobs,wet or dry it has come in handy. It has strong suction to clean up quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, convenient size, good price Only had this vacuum for a couple of weeks but it seems to perform well. If it is as durable as other Ridgid products I own it will last a long time and give me good service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great vaccum I install kitchens. the first vacuum (same model) has been used almost every day for about 5 years and sucked up anything you can think of, yes that too. I put a couple filters in and repaired the hose a few times, I've had no problems with the motor. I checked on getting a new hose and filter and the cost was more than the sale price on the whole unit. so yes I bought another for work and will use the other in my shop. there aren't many products that last longer than you expect these days... this has been one for me!!

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.
