Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great options Love how portable this unit is with great suction. Can be hung on a wall so it's out of the way and the 20 ft cord as well as the extended hose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Home Depot hit an absolute ZERO with this experience. I ordered this online for store pickup to save time and money. When I opened the box, parts were missing plus no manual. When I called the store the clerk says they don't carry manuals and you have to print them off of your printer, assuming it's working. When asked about the screws she says to come BACK to the store and they'll give me the missing parts. When I suggested we just swap out for another one she tells me they do NOT have these in the store and they'll replace with one of similar quality but with the wheels. No thanks. I used to be a die-hard H Depot fan and spent thousands there remodeling etc. but not anymore. The store at Windsor is poorly managed and the staff not very knowledgeable or helpful. I will continue to direct my business at the big "L". Ridgid Vacs have had a good reputation and I bit for this one. Looks like a mistake I won't repeat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product operation is as advertised. While the product appears to be quite satisfactory, the limited time I've had the unit does not yet lend itself toward a meaningful product review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble and convenient size. This vacuum has and does everything I was looking for I just wish they would include a set of caster wheels with it. I contact the manufacturer and was told to go back to Home Depot and order the wheels from them. Home Depot said they couldn’t order them and sent me over to Sears. They couldn’t help so I’ll have to find the wheels on line and hope they fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great little machine I have a super small workspace and having the ability to mount this on the wall makes my shop much safer. It's powerful and not overly loud. I absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for garage. Wall mounting frees up room on floor. Love it Have only had shop vacuum for a week but installed in garage immediately. Easy to install. Used to clean car as it worked beautifully and small crevice tools is nice. Received as a Xmas gift.

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.
