Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The vac needs to come with more attachments when it is sold. It is hard to clean floors in a vehicle with a 6inch Wide hose tip attachment, and not a fine tip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has great suction for its size. Easy to use. One wish would be to have additional options for extension pieces. Product has great suction for its size. Easy to use. One wish would be to have additional options for extension pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from issues Number one I cannot give an accurate rating on the durability since I have only had it a week or so and have only used it twice, my shop vac lasted me 15 years I will say that but did not go that route this time because they are not building them like they use too. The biggest and I mean BIGGEST issue I have with this unit is the carpet/smooth floor surface attachment, It does not work worth a crud on anything larger than a small piece of bird seed, I tried multiple times its just the way it is made it does not let it suck up the debris it looses its suction unless it is on carpet and you are pushing down on it but you cant move it then because it drags mats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than Lowes I have used Lowes vac for years their quality kept going down. I switch to Ridgid. I now use Ridgid both at home and on job sites. Ridgid sure makes the job easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I bought his product to replace a 20 year old Genie 5 gal. Shop vac. It was actually cheaper to replace than to buy all new attachments and hose. We shopped around and decided on the Rigid 6 gallon shop vac. We could not be happier! It came with everything you need to get started and there are numerous attachments to choose from to add to your arsenal of cleaning tools. Very happy with the purchase. Only suggestion we could make is to throw in the crevice tool with the kit. It’s probably the second most used attachment for A home owner .But no worries here, I will just pick one up next time I am in the store. Great job Rigid.

What is wrong with the plowing feature?

I have been unable to find any information elsewhere. I have this model and it has been great this past year but recently every time I turn on the vacuum, it sucks (like it's supposed to) and it blows air from the blowing port. How can I fix this problem so only one of these features works at a time (separately)?
Asked by: rachaelb
Like all vacuums, the blower motor, which creates vacuum, must have a way to remove the air from the canister in order to pick-up material. The "exhaust" port on your vacuum, in the last few years, has been engineered to be used as a "blower" when the suction hose is attached. The filter, we use the micron filter that is available, must be installed and will produce almost perfectly clean air to push item or dirt across any surface. So the blowing out of air at the exhaust port is normal. If it's not blowing strongly, the filter is in need of replacement or cleaning. Most filters can be washed and dried and reused several times. You must always be aware of the direction of the discharge air in order to prevent make a larger "mess" to clean up.

Using the 6 Gallon Vacuum Cleaner

I'm planning to buy a vacuum cleaner that utilizes water only as filter. I do not wish to use any dust bag or paper filter anymore as dust particles accumulate on the exhaust portion and when you turn on the unit, you can see dust particles being emitted into the air. Is the 6 Gallon WDO671EXO fit for continued performance in the house using water alone as filter? TIA.
Asked by: akitku
I have never used water as a filter. I do know that I have used it when there was only water and I didn't have the dust. It is good to use a filter so all that dust and stuff doesn't get inside your machine.

Filter vs. dust bags or both?

I've been using my 6 gal. Rigid for nearly a year and am happy with it. I use the standard paper filter as I use the vac in my small wood turning shop (which is actually my bedroom also) for the sawdust and shavings from wood turning as well as the metal dust from tool sharpening. I started with the filter only, but then had a bit of a wet spill and ruined my filter. I went to using filter and dust bags. That works fine, but I think it might be a bit redundant (and expensive). As I just filled a dust bag I'm asking this question now. Assuming I avoid wet spills, what is the most practical and economical way for me to use this vac? The dust bags can be a pain in the neck, one has to check them periodically to see if they are full, and sometimes they clog before they are full (a fold in one of the wings of the bag can block it). My thought as to the best way for me to use this vac is to go with filter only and empty the vac on a regular basis (one can't do that with a bag, who wants to throw away a bag until it is full). At the same time keep a bag around to put on when there is the occasional "messy spill". May I remind you I'm never vacuuming liquids, this is a carpeted room with wood panels under the actual machines and a real spill would soak into the carpet. I think I've answered my own question, sometimes writing something out clears the mind, but I'll send it anyway as the answers will be informative - and maybe the question will be. I'll go with the standard filter only for my routine work and empty the vac every couple of weeks. I'll buy another filter and switch filters on schedule, that way I can clean them easily and keep them in good shape. A bag for backup when there is a messy spill, install it and remove the filter for that pickup then take it off and tuck it away in a plastic bag for the next messy spill. Comments welcome, but this seems my best and most economical procedure. Finally, and off the main topic, I sprung for the longer and more flexible hose about 4 months ago. This may be of interest for those who, like me, basically use the Rigid vac in a fixed position. I have seen reviews on the Home Depot site complaining about the original hose, but they don't speak of the usage. The stiff original hose should be fine for those cleaning an area and pulling the vac around, it was not right for me as I have to reach a number of tools in a small area while leaving the vac in a fixed position. With the flexible hose it is perfect for me. Best, Jon

How do you get the filter off? I've tried twisting the knob at the bottom, I don't want to break it!

Asked by: Maxwellsmart
It simply PULLS off.
