Rated 5 out of 5 by PROSumer from Compared to Old Vac This one is far better in noise. It's about 25-40% less noise (no formal measure, but I can run without feeling like I need ear protection) and it not quite loud as a standard household vacuum. Perfect balance of power/suction to noise level. I would buy this one compared to anything on the market less than $300 and it's only around $100 so it's a no-brainer if you need a new vacuum. Assembly is easy. The only small change I would make is to increase the size of the wheels that is comes with so that it will roll over extension cord. Has a good long cord on the unit, but I need another 50 ft cord for rolling around the basement. Excellent Rigid product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skipkaczynski from Ridgid WD14500 Great wet / dry vacuum. Rated #1 in the industry for a reason, QUALITY. For the price of the vaccum it would be nice to have a 10 foot hose. Ridgid should consider designing a sturdy wall mount for the vaccum for storage purpose. Its not a tool i use every week, but when you need a good shop vacuum this it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by nailhead82 from I use this vacuum in my remodeling business, It is powerful and has a large container for debris. I have two of these vacuums, one for my shop and one I take on the job. I use it to clean drywall dust, sawdust, remodeling debris. Very powerful motor and suction, great filter.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851
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
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.

Will the WD1450 accept standard non locking hoses as well?
I had an extra hose from my last vac and it fit, but I believe I had to use the 3 piece adapter kit.

What is the duty cycle for WD1450?
Our new porch with insulated floor has water trapped between flooring deck and plastic sheeting over floor joists, and I need to get rid of the water before laying carpet. Since the flooring panels are tongue/groove, it would be extremely difficult to remove, so I am using my shop vac to draw water from a wet seam with the utility nozzle... hopefully, this works. I have run it for 10 minutes without any sign of overheating, but I would like to know how long it can run before needing a rest. Duty cycle isn't specified, but if it is 100%, I expect I can run it hours rather than minutes. An expert opinion from Ridgid would be greatly appreciated.
Hi FoxMan, We do not have the duty cycle - you have defined as how long it can run before needing a rest published. However, we have received testimonies from customers who have used this vacuum overnight in cleaning up flooded basements without any problems. This involved the cycle of filling up the drum and dumping out the water all through the night. To prevent the vacuum from overheating, it is strongly recommended that you read and fully understand the safety instructions on the owner’s manual. It is important to NOT leave Vac running while UNATTENDED - you may fail to notice important signs indicating abnormal operation such as loss of suction, debris/liquid exiting exhaust, or abnormal motor noises. Immediately stop using Vac if you notice these signs. You may also want to use other accessories that can draw water from the wet seam. The narrower the end and the closer you can get to the water, the better. You may also use the blower feature of you WD1450 to help dry the surface. Hopefully these tips help. For any further questions or concerns you may call customer service at the number above or you may send your email to [email protected] Regards, RIDGID
