Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase I did a lot of research before I bought this. First impressions: Well made, powerful, easy to use and easy to set up. I did not score it an excellent on durability because I've only had it a couple of weeks but It is very well made. I'm sure it will hold up well. Very pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Vacuum I like the WD5500 Store n Go Vacuum. The only thing is I wish that when I purchase a Ridgid Wet/Dry Vacuum that I could have the option to buy with a pro hose and pay a little more. Because I have the WD1451, WD5500, and WD4050, So my garage is getting full with the hoses that come with the vacuum. I use mostly the 2 pro hoses that I have along with the 20' black hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in our Metal Club, and the members love it! Of the many features, several stand out: 1) The wall mounting leaves more floor space, and makes it easier to clean-up; 2) We have it mounted between our two belt/disc sanders, and the "slinky" hose reaches both machines with ease; 3) Finally, we appreciate the "long" power cords on all our Rigid vacuums; 4) And, did I mention the lifetime warranty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price I really like this vacuum; it's not too big for a home garage and the wall mount feature is great. I have only had this vacuum for about a week but it seems sturdy enough and performs well. The long extension hose is another matter; functionally it's fine, but it seems rather cheaply made. Imagine you went to Walmart and bought the cheapest shopvac they sold; this is the hose you'd expect to get with it. The lack of quality is more noticeable as the shorter flex hose is MUCH higher quality. Not a deal breaker, but if they're looking to improve the next revision of this product that would be my suggestion. Otherwise I'm very happy with my purchase and would still recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mountable product, Hose Length is an issue for me I love this vacuum, however I found the hose to be a little short even with the adapter hose attached. 20 feet gets used up pretty quick and the reason I bought this vacuum was because i wanted a car cleaning solution for my single car garage to clean the car in the driveway (and take wear and tear away from my canister household vacuum). The product photos for this make it appear this will be a simple feet but I can barely have enough room to get to the back seats of my car and need to reverse my car into the driveway to get to the trunk in my standard Nissan 4 door car. The vacuum mounted right at the end of my garage wall and straight out into the driveway. I wish the hose was about 10 feet longer. Everything else about the vacuum is awesome...easy to mount, easy to hang attachments and very well thought out product. If I can buy an extension hose I will.

What is the hose diameter that comes with the vacuum and can it be adapted to other sizes?

Asked by: Geek
It comes with a 1 7/8" hose with a 2 1/4" O.D. fitting for the inlet port to the vacuum and the other end is 1 7/8" for 1 7/8" accessories. the end with the 2 1/4" fitting can be connected to another 2 1/2" tug along hose or what I use is The 1 7/8" Pro Hose and connect to a 2 1/2" x 20' tug along hose and the 1 1/4" x 10' car accessory kit orange hose. But you would have to get the adaptor kit VT1755 3 piece hose adaptor kit from Home Depot for around 9 bucks.

WD5500 - i want to use the carpet and hard floor nozzel, which i recently purchased, but this does not fit the rigid tubes for the floor-

The adapter that came with the carpet/hard floor accesory does not fit the extensions- where do i find the right part so that i can use this for carpets and hard floors in my shop? Thanks!
Asked by: MikeyC
if you have the nozzle that will fit a 1 1/4" and or 2 1/2" hoses you can get the adaptor for 1 7/8" to 1 1/4" at Home Depot model VT1755. The kit comes with 3 adaptors. For about 9 bucks.
