Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was recommended to me The hoses suck, the cost of buying more crappy slinky hoses is as much as the vacuum. The vacuum is good. Easy to clean easy to pack. I do own two of them. But the hoses suck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I shopped specifically for a Ridgid vacuum as I have other devices and a good set of batteries which work fine in it. I really like it. I needed something to do quick cleanup around my wood stove. You can work the on/off switch easily with your index finger to turn it on and off. I can carry it anywhere for a quick cleanup. It is very powerful. I got the extension with it to use as a blower on my front porch or garage. Much better than those small battery vacuums of the past. Glad I made this choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for small applications My only quibble with this product is the shortness of the hose which makes it less easy to use. Also the addition of a small angled attachment would allow me to give it a 5 across the board One other thought—it absolutely picks up greater volume faster than less as you continue to work which is great in the panic of needing a quick pickup

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial review after 2 uses So far so good, it was the size I was looking for but still has enough power for the jobs I use it for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the portability Ok guys it’s simple to use and easy to move around with it. You better have a battery that 5AH or better for it to pickup debris on small projects. The design can be better such as the exhaust outlet should be able to store extension nozzles Excellent for travellers and car/RV cleaning. Ridgid /Home Depot should sell these on the shelves instead of waiting for online orders took like 2-3 weeks to get. This was a gen4X so I assume a 5 is coming out soon? Anyway, it’s a thumbs up !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High powered portable vacuum is a winner After buying (and returning) a competitors product with similar capacity, I found this one superior in several ways. It is easy to carry which is important for a portable vacuum. Perhaps most important, it doesn't weigh much compared to others (about half as much as the one I returned from a competitor). Not as important, but appealing, is the design which just looks nice. Although it doesn't come with many attachments, they are easy to obtain. I vacuumed gallons of water off a garage mat with no problem using a wet attachment nozzle purchased at the local hardware store. The only improvement would be the addition of wheels to make dragging it a little easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy a 6 year old can use it! I bought this item for my garage. Set up was easy, no need for instructions. My 6 year old has started using it to clean up little messes, would defiantly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Lightweight and easy to use. Great suction. I got this item as a gift. You can get extra parts for vacuuming the inside of your car for detailing.

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.

Power head latches

Please take a look at the two pictures I'm sending along with this message. #1 the power head is sitting tight on drum... #2 when I lift the vac for transportation, the power head isn't sitting tight anymore. Normal?
Asked by: morindi
Hello morindi, Thanks for asking! Yes the gap between the power head and the drum is normal. The seal will be created when you turn on the vac and it will function as intended. If you have further questions, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at [email protected] Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support
