Rated 4 out of 5 by from The smaller auto hose and attachments was a nice addition. Nice I just got it, a comment on durability seems like a silly thing to ask me to rate. The muffler that you offer is useless. The exhaust noise is so minor compared to the motor noise that you can't tell the difference with or without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Choice I purchased this to assist in the cleanup of Hurricane Harvey and myself and many of my neighbors used this machine to a high degree of satisfaction. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swallows up everything I've thrown at it so far I am loving my new shop/yard vac. It replaces a smaller 30+ year old vac whose small diameter hose would repeatedly clog when I tried to clean up the palm tree seeds that drop in our back patio by the thousands. The first time I used the Ridgid vac, it cleaned up about 120 lbs of those seeds in no time flat, without a single clog. It also sucked up wet leaves and blossoms from other vegetation without any problem. And the Ridgid vac was so quiet compared to the old vac that my wife didn't even realize I was cleaning up the patio. This unit is very solidly built and I expect to get years of service from it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great warranty This product would have received five stars in all categories except durability had it either come with, or had available as an extra, a foam pre-filter to keep large particles from a thickness planer or sawdust from a table saw from clogging the filter. I would not have given it five stars for durability because I have had it a short time and have used it only two or three times. My prior Ridgid wet/dry vacuum failed after only two months use. I honestly can not rate for durability based on a short period of use. However, I can say that Ridgid stood behind the earlier model which failed and gave me full replacement value through the big box store where it was purchased. With that as a background, I would say that Ridgid's warranty and customer service are outstanding, which is why I bought another Ridgid wet/dry vacuum, although a different model.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851

Asked by: mkaibel
uhhh...call me lame, but a "decible meter" is NOT a piece of equip. that anyone I know (including myself) would tend to purchase...so I can't answer this question. IF the owners manuel lists the decible level, I'm not about to go fish for that info. Sorry. That's an unusual question to ask a custormer. Decible level? Really?

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
The CFM (air flow) is measured by how much air is taken in through a round opening ranging from two inches to completely closed. Of course, there is zero CFM at no opening and maximum CFM at a two-inch opening.
