Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good power for a small unit This unit will pick up #9 shot that has been spilled. My big vac will not do this. It should come with more tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIDGIT 3 gallon shop vac. Excellent ! It is much quieter than my bigger 16 gallon shop vac and it cleans up the sawdust just as good. Also, you can move the 3 gallon around a lot easier. I really like this small shop vac !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, Powerful and Convenient! I have a much larger 16 Gallon Vacuum, but it is too big for quick jobs and vacuuming my cars. This compact powerhouse is perfect for quick jobs. It is small enough to keep in my single car garage, always on hand When needed, has plenty of power and a full-size filter to keep dust inside the canister where it belongs. I highly recommend this compact powerhouse! I did purchase a Ridgid crevasse tool and brush, but the included attachment is perfect for most uses, including the carpets in my car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only complaint is the power cord is too short. This has the power of the larger vacs but can carry around with you, only complaint is the power cord is a little short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Barber Shop MUST HAVE! I own a busy Barber Shop and this vacuum caught my eye mainly because of the built in dust pan. This has been a great help in keeping my shop clean! Simply turn it on and sweep the loose hair towards the vacuum and Voila! it's gone. The small amount that is missed on the first pass is taken care of with a second. It's a bit noisy, but so is the shop - so it's not out of place at all. Looks sharp sitting on the floor - no need to hide this bad boy. After registering, I have no service worries that this will not last. To all Barbers and Salon owners out there - GET THIS TODAY! You will thank 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.
