Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only the hose fittings were quality! The power and usability of this vac gets 5 stars. Makes work-site cleanup much easier. A big plus not expected is using as a blower for yard work and sawdust outdoors. I bought a wet/dry filter for water pickup, a must for that because the dry filter gets soggy when wet, and deforms. So get the extra filter if you do water cleanup. The hose blows off the vac when used as a blower. I have to wedge some paper towel to keep the hose on. Could be better. Also the hose has an adjustment to decrease the intake power when the suction is too much, but it does not fit tightly. It should fit tightly. For car or truck cleanup, I got the extra long wand for tight spaces. There's no real provision for carrying more than one attachment, so that's an issue. If you invest in Ridgid tools, then having two of the expensive batteries will not throw you a curve, since you already have a charger! I have their drill and now a circular saw, so all the batteries being interchangable is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design.. Exactly what I wanted to replace my small shop vac which just isn't powerful enough for the way I use it to collect dust as I carve or sand my projects... AND this Rigid, even though is larger then my old on,, is designed perfectly for what I want and need. Fits even better in it's location then the smaller shop vac... It will just sit next to my woodcarving bench for the duration.. The hose is perfect as it doesn't spread all over under my feet..And the suction works much better then my old vac.. I'm extremely satisfied and the price was right..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid 3 Gallon Portable Pro Wet/Dry Vac very powerful vacuum, easy to use and light to carry, 18-Volt Lithium-Ion 4.0Ah Battery last enough to do the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AS DESCRIBED BUT SHORT CORD STURDY, RELIABLE PRODUCT. WISH THE CORD WAS LONGER (ONLY 4 FEET).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The vacuum is very easy to use and is a great product I have another bigger Rigid vacuum. This one allows me to use it for smaller projects. It is a great vacuum and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient Great little vac only complaint is the cord shouldn't be on the same side as the hose. Seems like a engineering blunder

Vacuum Bag

I own the Rigid WD1450 vac and love it. Was looking for a portable unit as well. Does this smaller vac have an option to use vacuum bags in addition to the filter. I prefer to use the bags in addition to the filter when picking up drywall dust. Thank you.
Asked by: BrianH
No, the internals of this vac are small, maybe the addition of a foam filter may help. I saw no options for a bag.

Power head latches

Please take a look at the two pictures I'm sending along with this message. #1 the power head is sitting tight on drum... #2 when I lift the vac for transportation, the power head isn't sitting tight anymore. Normal?
Asked by: morindi
Hello morindi, Thanks for asking! Yes the gap between the power head and the drum is normal. The seal will be created when you turn on the vac and it will function as intended. If you have further questions, you may call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at [email protected] Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support
