Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of suction This vac is small in size but has a lot of suction. It was exactly what I was looking for, something small that's easy to carry around but still has the power of a bigger shop vac. The suction does suffer some if the filter is dirty but that is an easy fix. Just blow it out with the air compressor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good This is a nice, compact 4gal vacuum that comes with the attachments most people would need. There are others available as well. Good power and rolls easily enough with the front casters and larger rear wheels. I would recommend this for your smaller cleanup jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really strong yet small and easy to move around Fantastic machine! My first wet/dry vacuum I was constantly fighting with! Power cord was too short and suction hose would crimp up at every turn and would not roll straight when I was pulling it around a room. Set it out by the road and give it away! Rigid is ahead of the game!!

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Sounds like you've got something blocking the hose. If you attach the hose and the motor changes to a higher pitched sound you've got a blocked hose.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
