Rated 5 out of 5 by TomO from Great portability. Great power for a small vac. Did not last very long. This unit is very compact and powerful. It didn't last very long though. I've always had a large, cumbersome unit, and I imagine I will need a size in between the two sizes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ErichM from Horrible suction This has horrible suction. It hardly picks up any dirt and it is extremely loud. If I have it running for more than five minutes, my ears start to ring. Also, during the run process, it smells like its burning up. I have only used it a couple of times and I think it's about to break on me.

What is wrong with the plowing feature?
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)?
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.

Using the 6 Gallon Vacuum Cleaner
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.
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.

Ridgid 6 gal vacuum
Hi i have the 6 gallon vacuum 22.5 liters and i would like to know if there's a way of reducing the load noise from the vacuum
Yes, but you'll probably waste your money.

How do you get the filter off? I've tried twisting the knob at the bottom, I don't want to break it!
It simply PULLS off.
