Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great portable shop Vac This unit is really small, portable and handy. We love the cartridge filter which has been really effective in not spouting any drywall dust during our renovation cleanups.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works ok but not like my other rigid vacuums Bought this because I have other rigid vacuums and wanted something a bit smaller to carry in to clean up after working and was hoping it would work like one of the larger rigid vacs that I own and found it didn’t have the suction force for picking up material. I ended up using my larger rigid vac although it was a pain to use in a smaller space and not as portable as this unit. I would return it to Home Depot but I have misplaced my receipt. I do like the portability of the vac and design just not impressed with the suction power for picking up materials

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a quality product This vac was a replacement of the same model I brought 7 years ago . The original saw a lot of use and the warranty process was without incident. A couple of pictures and emails and Ridgid stood squarely behind their product and free shiping. Way to go Ridgid you just made me a lifetime costumer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and portable Recently purchased, only used on one occasion. Compact and powerful. Too early to rate durability. Extra attachments such as a crevice tool would be appreciated. Great warranty.

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
