Add a top handle with a cord wrap, heavy duty 2-piece drum construction, a large drain and you’ve got a wet/dry vac that achieves the demands of Pro’s on the job site or in the shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful and quiet for a vacuum. I have heard good things about RIGID products since I was a kid (58 now) and of course I go on experience. But... I still want a RIGID calendar with the models...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems rather a good value So far (only used a couple of times) this vacuum seems great. It's quieter than my old Craftsman shop vac. I really like the added 10 foot hose and attachments that came with. Home Depot is the best. Great customer service too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks and feels great, very well built, esy to use and nice and quiet. Most of my tools I own now are Ridgid and I'm very happy with them. Now this vacuum not so much.! It looks good, very well built and tough like all Ridgid tools but it has no sucking power. Honestly it's a joke how weak it is. But I'd definitely recommend it if you want a well built esy to use vacuum that doesn't need to have good suction.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh! Not impressed. While the quiet motor is a nice feature, this vacuum isn't the best. The cord is woefully short! How can a shop vac have such a small cord??? My Miele vacuum has a cord almost twice as long! The extension pieces don't stay connected during use and separate. This vac is a joke to use!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent quality for the price. Lifetime warranty, and well built. Bought his unit on sale at Home Depot and cannot say anything bad about the unit. Performs well, seems better built than my old craftsman. Efinately would buy Rigid products again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Replaced my very old Shopvac with this 14 gallon Rigid, can’t believe how quiet it is, very good suction. It was a bit more than I needed but for the extra $20 why not. Has handled everything I’ve asked it to do easily. Will purchase the car kit to finish it off.

can i wet vac with paper filter

Asked by: jerryrusty
It is not recommended. Depending on your use you can remove the pleated paper filter or purchase a sponge type filter that will replace the pleated paper filter.

hoses

Will the WD1450 accept standard non locking hoses as well?
Asked by: dresnik
I had an extra hose from my last vac and it fit, but I believe I had to use the 3 piece adapter kit.

Is the airflow (CFM) of the vacuums measured at the end of the hose or at the opening on the canister?

Asked by: ShopDoc
My guess would be at the hose but either way these are great vacuums!
