Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what is supposed to do but for 3hp doesn't feel like is powerfull overal very good. Works well I got it at a great deal at home depot. Come with basic accessories, the hose is not long enough and is very stiff and the cord is not long enough. This review is just my opinion for the used I need for. Overall is good shop vac.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Filters are hard to install The vac works well as expected. However the filters are pressed on and difficult to push on and remove. The water filter is also over priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product here! I love this vacuum. Used it in my truck to clean it out and it left my truck so clean it looked brand new. I plan on using it to clean up my garage and the water on the floor when I hose it down soon. I loved the fact that this vacuum has lifetime warranty. All companities should stand by their products like Ridgid. I would definitely buy this again and recommend it to my friends and family.

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.
