Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIDGID Portable Vacuum I do interior painting and I attach this unit to a random orbital sander to prep most of the paint surfaces. This portable unit is by far the absolute best for the job and is so easy to maneuver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portability that's professional! Light enough to carry around on the job, but strong enough to get the job done! This is the vacuum I use to clean out the rigs, and it does an outstanding job!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but should come with vacuum bag for first time use Light weight, great hose and powerful motor but cord attachment is difficult to use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend buying 2- one for only wet and 1 for only dry We struggled with installing and removing the filter at first. Once we figured it out, everything else has been great. We love the dust pan feature! I keep it in my kitchen and use it as a stationary vacuum. I wish the filter could remain in place for both wet and dry purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great Took a while to figure where the battery went, after that I was happy with the way it picked up pine needles from car carpet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lite weight and works well for small jobs in the shop instead of getting out the large shop vac. Lite weight and works well for small jobs in the shop instead of getting out the large shop vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and easy to use especially for those small cleanups Even though I have a big shop vac for the big jobs, the 3 gallon works great when you have a small cleanup or need to get it someplace without a lot of room. It is easy to just pick up and take where it is needed and does not take up a lot of space when it is stored. I also intend to attach it to my table saw to catch the saw dust as it will fit right under the saw and be out of the way. I anticipate using this much more often than the big on I also have.

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.
