Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vac I love this little thing I figured it would lack power and not last however it has exceeded my expectations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a great vac I have the W45. It is a rectangle vacuum so it works very well In my Ford connect. Im very limited on space. I do A/C service and it is used for removing leaves and dirt mud and what ever else is in the bottom of a condenser. It works on plugged up drain lines as well. I also have one for my garage as well for daily things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't get in the way of the suction tube/wand. I like the fact that it has the vacuum bag to collect fine dust. I only have had the vacuum for a few days but so far it has done the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great suction. The vacuum appears to be quite sturdy. Wheels are easy to maneuver. The hose is okay but the extensions with floor brush are very difficult to work with.

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)?
Asked by: rachaelb
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.
Asked by: akitku
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.

you used to have a hose adapter from 2" to 1 1/2" do you still make them and i need one for 1 1/2" to 1 1/4" if that is also avaible

I have a 2" hose on a bigger vac and want to downsize it for my tools I need to attach it to like a table saw.
Asked by: shrwndy
Hello shrwndy, Thanks for asking! The only power tool adapter we make is the VT1407 you can find on this page and it can be used with a vac with 2-1/2 inch hose to a smaller diameter such as 1-1/2 inch. Then you can trim off the unnecessary adapter. If you need further assistance, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'd be glad to assist you. Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support

Filter vs. dust bags or both?

I've been using my 6 gal. Rigid for nearly a year and am happy with it. I use the standard paper filter as I use the vac in my small wood turning shop (which is actually my bedroom also) for the sawdust and shavings from wood turning as well as the metal dust from tool sharpening. I started with the filter only, but then had a bit of a wet spill and ruined my filter. I went to using filter and dust bags. That works fine, but I think it might be a bit redundant (and expensive). As I just filled a dust bag I'm asking this question now. Assuming I avoid wet spills, what is the most practical and economical way for me to use this vac? The dust bags can be a pain in the neck, one has to check them periodically to see if they are full, and sometimes they clog before they are full (a fold in one of the wings of the bag can block it). My thought as to the best way for me to use this vac is to go with filter only and empty the vac on a regular basis (one can't do that with a bag, who wants to throw away a bag until it is full). At the same time keep a bag around to put on when there is the occasional "messy spill". May I remind you I'm never vacuuming liquids, this is a carpeted room with wood panels under the actual machines and a real spill would soak into the carpet. I think I've answered my own question, sometimes writing something out clears the mind, but I'll send it anyway as the answers will be informative - and maybe the question will be. I'll go with the standard filter only for my routine work and empty the vac every couple of weeks. I'll buy another filter and switch filters on schedule, that way I can clean them easily and keep them in good shape. A bag for backup when there is a messy spill, install it and remove the filter for that pickup then take it off and tuck it away in a plastic bag for the next messy spill. Comments welcome, but this seems my best and most economical procedure. Finally, and off the main topic, I sprung for the longer and more flexible hose about 4 months ago. This may be of interest for those who, like me, basically use the Rigid vac in a fixed position. I have seen reviews on the Home Depot site complaining about the original hose, but they don't speak of the usage. The stiff original hose should be fine for those cleaning an area and pulling the vac around, it was not right for me as I have to reach a number of tools in a small area while leaving the vac in a fixed position. With the flexible hose it is perfect for me. Best, Jon
