Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 201 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 This product has great features. Awesome vacuum. Performance is perfect for the DIY projects. Nice selection of attachments. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice vac! I bought this to replace a 10 year old 6 gallon Brand X that had served me faithfully. The new Rigid has adequate suction for my needs (hobby metal working) and is the right size to not be in my way all the time. I'm a little disappointed that you have to buy a brush attachment as an "add on". To me, the brush is essential to using the vacuum. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great. This product is lightweight and powerful. Easy to use and quickly switch from wet to dry. January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very easy to use and easy to get around. My new wet-dry vac is perfect. It's easy to get around and has good power. I would recommend this to a home owner for the simple fact that it's great and does the job. I would give it 10 stars if possible. Thank You Rigid for GREAT products. December 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by product is easy 2 use vac is easy 2 use, just the right size 4 my useage and light enough 4 my wife 2 vac her car without having 2 wrestle with it December 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This wet/dry vac come well equipped for the price. Great value for a wet/dry vac and the perfect size for portability. The only suggestion is the design for how well the top fits. It is loose and when the vac is off and picked up dust falls out from around the top and bottom. Appears to need some type of seal. December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Wet/Dry Shop Vac I'm very happy with my new 6 gallon Shop Vac. It's nice, sufficient power, easy to use and compact for storage. November 30, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good size, capabilities, and seems well built. Do not like the power. Have used many ridgid vacuums being in construction for 20 years. Normally a strong vacuum brand I think when I decided to buy a more compact version for myself is where I lost out on the power. I am not the type of person who returns items especially after opening, but I will not be happy whenever I use it. November 18, 2015

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)?

Answer: 
-We would like to let you know that there is no way to stop the blowing feature of the vac because the vac is design to blow air at same time while you are vacuuming. Air will be drawn into the vacuum through the suction port and exit through the blower port. The debris that has been picked up by the vacuum should be captured by the filter. With the correct filter properly installed, only clean air would be exiting the exhaust.
We hope this information helps. Have a great day!

Thank you

Answer: 
There is nothing wrong with your blowing feature. in order for the motor to be able to create suction, it has to both intake air and exhaust air. As with any vac you have ever owner, there is always an exhaust, the blower is the exhaust.

Just the same as when you remove the top to use just the blower, there is an intake ontop of the motor which if you put your hand there, you will feel the suction.

Your vac is functioning as it should. Happy cleaning.

Answer: 
All vacuums of this type take in air though one inlet (where the hose is normally connected), run it into the can through the filter and then expel it through the outlet (the blowing port). If I understand your question correctly, your vac is working as it should. Strictly speaking, it is air in, air out,

Answer: 
The motor must exhaust air from the unit. Home Depot sells a "diffuser" for $12 it just attaches to the the exhaust port an helps out tremendously. Good luck

Answer: 
You cannot. It is supposed to have an 'exhaust'. Any motor designed to blow or suck will do both at the same time. Stopping or blocking one will disable the other.

Answer: 
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.

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.

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

The WD0671EX0 is a wet/dry vac. Thus, you can expect the same performance when using the vac for wet pickups. We recommend that you use the VF7000 for large amounts of liquid pickups.

Regards,
RIDGID

Answer: 
First this vac is not meant for water filtration. I have owned this vac before and I just use the finepartical filter for dust and just wash it off with a hose afterwards and let it dry for a few days. You should not run the unit without a filter or try to use water as one. I have also used the dust bags and have had great luck with them if you fill them to they are full. Hope that this helps you and just use the filer bags or a fine dust particle filter and dust should not come out unless you bang the filter inside the drum to get dust off the filter, then some might come out.

Answer: 
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.
