Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I've used the 9 and 12 gallon models on job sites and really liked the tug along feature and how easy it is to clean the filter. I purchased the 6 gallon model for home use with the same features and it is light enough for my wife to easily use. Nice having a shop vac that the hoses, wands and attachments don't disconnect right when you need them the most like other shop vac's do. Also, nice having a handy place to store the wands when not in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Power and Easy Use of this Vac When I first turn on the vac I was shocked to see the power it had when cleaning my car. Next I took the vac indoors to clean but first I installed a higher quality filter for indoors. Changing the filter may have been the biggest shock yet. It was so easy I had to run and grab my wife so she could see this as well. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 6 gallons? Not after the filter gets wet Had my first need to really remove a lot of water. The first load was a full basin, but everything after that only pulls in about a gallon before it says "wait, I can't take any more" -- maybe it's because the filter is wet, but that would make it the first W/D vac I've ever had that showed this limitation when being used as a wet vac. If I hadn't just bought it several months ago, I'd pitch the thing and buy something that works more than once as a wet vac.

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: 
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: 
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.

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: 
-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

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: 
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.

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: 
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.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting RIDGID® Customer Support.

You could buy a noise muffler to connect to the blower port of the vac, but it reduces the noise by about 10% only. The part number is VT2525 and you can buy it at your local Home Depot or through Customer Service by calling 1-800-474-3443 or on-line at www.ridgidparts.com or www.homedepot.com

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to [email protected]
