Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked better than I thought Strong suction and light in weight. It was more powerful than I expected

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suction. Easily glides around w/ the type of casters they put on it. 2nd one I have owned....1 at each of two locations. Great product. Well constructed, sturdy, long cord, good sized diameter of hoses, easy to pull & glide around on wider casters than what competitors put on their shop vacs. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good MSRP value for the size and Peak HP I bought 3 Ridgid 9-Gallon 4.25 HP Model WD09701 Shop Vacs from Home depot; to resolve a water leak that soaked the carpet and padding. After removing most of the water. I found the padding was still wet enough to wick into the carpet. I lined up the three Ridgid and a borrowed Craftsman Shop Vac inline and weighted down the nozzle and let them suck for 10 minutes; before incrementally moving them to the next position. I had them running 8-12 hours a day for a week. The 4 Shop Vacs also produced warm exhaust air; which helped in the drying process. I'll be replacing the carpet/padding later this year.

drianage plug size ?

what is recommended to attach a hose or pipe for drainage with my Rigid 9 gal wet/dry vac ? Or what size adaptor ?
Asked by: Bran
the hose size is 1 7/8" diameter exactly
Answered by: DIYmikey

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
