Rated 5 out of 5 by from like the size for travel I bought this vac for our 5th wheel, because of its size. It was rated well by other users. So far I have not gotten to use it that much. It would be better if it had something on the bottom to help it from tipping over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, sturdy, powerful, convenient I have three Shop-Vacs. This Ridgid model far out shines the Shop vacs. Never had a Ridgid model before, and would buy another when the time comes. It has a well designed hose that doesn't fight you, has a dust pan feature built in that vacuums as you sweep the floor debris toward it, on board storage, long cord, easy and accessible on/off switch, and solid carrying handle. Can't go wrong for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A handy self-contained portable unit This was a gift to me from a carpenter on the advice of another carpenter, chosen because of its durable well thought-out features for the home handyman. Simple, durable, and capable of the job with real vacuum power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Nice Unit Overall the unit works good. I would of liked a longer hose. I use mainly for vacuuming our cars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wet/dry vac I have other Rigid wet/dry vacs and all have been excellent. I have the 16 gallon and the 4 gallon vacs, but was looking for one that was smaller and more portable. I found this one one Home Depot website and had seen it in action a contractor that was working at my home. It is light and heavy duty in picking up debris. I knew from previous experience with Ridgid product that it would be durable and last a lifetime. I love it. I recently used on a home product and it picked up the debris in a snap. It is small enough for transport but delivers power like the big boy vacs. I can not say enough about this vac. I am glad I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this little machine! We just started a bathroom renovation & saw the wet/dry vac on sale at Home Depot. We figured it would come in handy during the destruction phase. It has exceeded our expectations. It is small enough to carry/store easily but the bucket is large enough to hold a lot of debris before needing to be emptied. It has great suction & it works well for both wet & dry pick up. We are very pleased with this little vacuum.

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
