Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Vac is a compact Bull Worker! Powerful for medium clean up jobs. Easy to set up and break down, *It would be even better if the redesigned the base to accept extension wand to be stored inside instead of the outside. Easy to clean filter and empty unit and not heavy to carry around. Field use in both wet and dry situations with excellent results. Easy to store in truck/service vehicle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with this item. This unit is a very handy item to have! I can carry it anywhere, it is compact yet very powerful. I have a RIDGID 12 gallon, 6 HP that I have had for 15 years but it is a bit larger to pack around on small jobs. The portable unit I just bought covers these little projects and then some. It is amazing the suction that this unit has for such a compact tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable The Ridgid brand speaks for itself. Backed by their guarentee. Dependability and reliability are the first two words when it comes to the Name. Perfect for work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I love this vacuum. The shape allows it to fit in my truck much easier than typical round vacuums. It is strong and works very well. Very convenient that the hose and attachments store inside. It does not have wheels, but that does not affect my usage. It however might not work as well for some situations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The all parts on board feature is great. The rectangle design is not favorable to dust bag use. However, the overall product is great. Suction is ok. See the summary. The unit works well. The only negative is that it is not bag friendly. I tried 2 bags and gave up and will just use filters. The rectangle design does not allow the bags to open up because the filter obstructs the bag and doesn’t allow it to open up. This causes all debt into collect at the entry point and the result is greatly reduced suction. This is not my “go to” vac. I bought it to use at customer job sites for light clean up. It’s more than adequate for the job. The built in storage for flex hose and attachments is great. The tube extensions store well on the side. Good compact transportability.

Can use this vacuum to clean a COLD pallet stove.

I am wondering if I can use this vacuum to clean my pellet stove when the ashes are totally cold. Do I need an additional filter or do they have a specific filter for cleaning ashes?
Asked by: arod
I think it would work well for cold ashes. I would suggest buying the filter bags rather than just using the internal pleated fine dust filter. This vac was originally intended for cleaning up drywall dust and would work well for laser printer toner or ashes I would think.

I would like to know which of your wet/dry vacuums have the Scroll Noise Reduction built in.

I already have two of the large vacuums, but am looking for a smaller portable with the Scroll Noise Reduction built in. It isn't always clear from the website which ones have it, so I would like to know for sure. Thank you
Asked by: brasilbob
These two answers to my original question make no sense. The description of this vacuum above clearly states under "Features" that this model has Scroll Noise Reduction. That is item #7. So, it would appear that this model does have the Scroll Noise Reduction feature. While waiting for an answer, I went ahead and ordered, and received, this vacuum. Based on the amount of noise it makes, or rather doesn't make, I would say that it does indeed have the Scroll Noise Reduction. It is relatively quiet for such a powerful vacuum. As I intend to use it in public places, that is important to me. I am rather disappointed in the inaccuracy of the previous answers, and am glad I didn't wait to make a purchasing decision based on their information.

Is it possible to order a replacement Superflex hose?

My Superflex hose has cracked and broken, and the replacement hoses are not flexible enough to fit in the tool storage compartment.
Asked by: snsmyth
My unit is new so mine has not cracked. That is a shame the replacement hose does not package into the side since to me that is one of the major advantageous of this unit.
