Rated 5 out of 5 by from First off! I bought two I love the longer cord! Really comes in handy. The NXT lineup is really solid and still has amazing suction, which makes my job as an auto detailer very easy..the auto detailing kit that came with the vacuum is amazing! The flexible crevice extensiona and more pliable hose really set it off! I had a 14 gallon 6.0 hp previously and I think this one is a much better vacuum

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product 7/11/19 I needed a good suction for paint chips in the grass and this did the job. I registered it as Ridgid provides lifetie replacement - a good service. I have not read the insturctions but I have not succeeded at taking thfilter off. I then realized it wasnt necessary ad thr suction bypassed the filter and just dropped the paint chips inside the reservoir. Ive changed filters on other shop vacs - but Ill have to read up on how to turn the plastic tip to loosen it before I break it or grind of the plastic tips!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found great deal with accessories included I have always found Rigid tools to be superior to most, so when I found a great deal on a new wet/dry vac and it included a kit of attachments for car detailing, I scooped it up quickly. I was not disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money Great value for the price. Came with the car detail kit. Easy to assemble, however missing a few screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, really sucks up the water. Several days of rain and a clogged floor drain resulted in lots of water on my basement floor. Had to replace a wet/dry vac that was ruined in a sewage backup incident months ago. This one is larger and more powerful. Really seemed to suck up the water better which was facilitated by a really useful attachment. Got up lots of water quickly.

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.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851

I just bought one of these and the directions say the casters will 'snap' into place, but they do not. They just fall out. Is this right?

Asked by: bkay
No, the casters should not fall out. You may not be applying enough force to get them to snap into place. I had to press pretty firmly with my hand to get them to lock in but once they did, all is well. I do not recommend using a hammer or other tool. That could damage the casters. Do it by hand only and find a helper if need be.

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.
