Rated 4 out of 5 by from limited review It's difficult to review this product when I've only used it a few times. I can't rate the "durability" part because I've only had it for a few weeks. It does serve the need I purchased it for.... vacuuming my vehicles. I haven't used it for anything else. I have many RIDGID tools and I will say this about what I've experienced with RIDGID when it come to their warranty, they stand by it and that's one of the main reasons I purchased this RIDGID 3 Gallon Portable Pro Wet/Dry Vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum! My 5.0 amp battery looses connection sometimes! Does not lock in place like it should. Otherwise great product! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable vacuum for the field technician I purchased this vacuum for the preventive maintenances I do. This unit is light enough to haul around a campus without needing to be Popeye, but powerful enough to get the job done. It is somewhat loud, but not unexpectedly so. I can't speak to durability yet, but so far it feels like a well-built product and for under $50, it was an absolute steal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, portable, easy to use I bought this model because we don't have a lot of storage space. Small and compact design, but it doesn't lack for suction power. While only 3.5HP, I'll take the size/power tradeoff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, easy to use Suction power is good for small vac. Less noisy than my old unit from another brand. With handle easy to carry around and use. Good value.
Date published: 2018-12-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great size and function The unit is easy to move and use. No accessories is a negative and no blower function is a negative. One hose attachment does not do the job. Additional end tools will have to be imagined.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and light This is a secondary Shop-vac to the Ridgid WD1450 14-Gallon 6-Horsepower I already own. Easier to transport to/from the house for smaller home projects, and also around the workshop when the larger one is dedicated to dust collection on other tools.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too top heavy and hose too short and tight It keeps falling over i put a brick in it to stablize. Cord at wrong end of vac. Should include paper bags in the kit.

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.
