Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blowing port location - WRONG I bought the portable unit for cleaning up dust and debris. The blow port does a outstanding job scattering/dispersing the debris. I ended up placing my 2-1/2 Ridgid muffler/diffuser into the blowing port and that seem to take care of the scattering issue. BUT the diffuser is too long and is forced fitted into the blowing port. An improvement would be a smaller diffuser unit, that would allow the 'right cover' to close without removing the diffuser. All in all, I can live with taking your regular muffler/diffuser on and off. But if you decide to produce one for the WD45500, I'll volunteer to test it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product This product does what it's supposed to do and beats carrying a big shop-vac around. My only disappointment is with Ridgid's registration process! Not the first product from Ridgid I've had issues registering. Even got a response telling me I was in the wrong dept...........and it ended there! How about forwarding to the right dept!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great suction but terrible design job on extension tube side caddie. The practicality and overall function ability of this shop vac is great with 2 exceptions. - The main suction hose somewhat regularly comes unscrewed. It even happened on the first day of real use. You can actually see where the glue broke free from the threads on the hose. I have had this same exact problem with one of Ridgid's battery operated shop vacs as well. - The black plastic external side caddie for the 2 extension tubes was a problem from the day this product came out of the box! I am sure you will see what I mean if you purchase one of these. It's just something you will have to be willing to deal with. Just a terrible design is what it comes down to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PROPACK 1 7/8" hose to 2 1/2" attachment Limitations RIDGID needs to include (or offer) a 1 7/8" to 2 1/2" adapter to connect the PROPACK 1 7/8" hose to 2 1/2" accessories, and 2 1/2" dust collection ports of various construction site portable power tools (such as Bosch GTS1031 Portable Jobsite Table Saw)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stackable vacuum that works well and is very compact! I bought this vacuum because the round vacuum take up too much room and this fits perfectly in my shop and truck. Has just enough power to suck drywall dust.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great suction but noisy I recently purchased this unit and have only used it twice. It has good suction but quite noisy. I like the compact design but it isn't easy to stow the hose and power cord in the provided compartment. Overall I think it a good value at $70.

Can use this vacuum to clean a COLD pallet stove.

I am wondering if I can use this vacuum to clean my pellet stove when the ashes are totally cold. Do I need an additional filter or do they have a specific filter for cleaning ashes?
Asked by: arod
I used this vac to clean our wood stove and it did a steller job. Of coarse the ash was stone cold and the filter had to be cleaned after the job to restore the vacs pickup power. I used a stiff brush to clean the filter and the fine ash that clong to the intierior of the drum.

I would like to know which of your wet/dry vacuums have the Scroll Noise Reduction built in.

I already have two of the large vacuums, but am looking for a smaller portable with the Scroll Noise Reduction built in. It isn't always clear from the website which ones have it, so I would like to know for sure. Thank you
Asked by: brasilbob
These two answers to my original question make no sense. The description of this vacuum above clearly states under "Features" that this model has Scroll Noise Reduction. That is item #7. So, it would appear that this model does have the Scroll Noise Reduction feature. While waiting for an answer, I went ahead and ordered, and received, this vacuum. Based on the amount of noise it makes, or rather doesn't make, I would say that it does indeed have the Scroll Noise Reduction. It is relatively quiet for such a powerful vacuum. As I intend to use it in public places, that is important to me. I am rather disappointed in the inaccuracy of the previous answers, and am glad I didn't wait to make a purchasing decision based on their information.

Is it possible to order a replacement Superflex hose?

My Superflex hose has cracked and broken, and the replacement hoses are not flexible enough to fit in the tool storage compartment.
Asked by: snsmyth
My unit is new so mine has not cracked. That is a shame the replacement hose does not package into the side since to me that is one of the major advantageous of this unit.
