Rated 4 out of 5 by from Appears to Perform Well It's a bit premature to rate this Vac. I've used it on sawdust and it performed very well. Recommended to clean the filter after fine dust pickup. I've also vacuumed my car as well without issues. Seems to have strong suction power. My only disappointment is that it did not come with some needed accessories. So far so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vacuum is great but the hose is terrible. Spend more time fighting stiff hose, won’t bend or swivel. Hose too unwieldy, stiff and won’t swivel. Rolling feet on bottom should be under the vac where every time the base encounters a corner etc. it would go around it not get stuck. Spending more time fighting the hose getting it to let me move in the direction I need to get to. Other than that like most of the Ridgid products it’s great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum!!!!!!!!!! I got this for a placement and let me tell you, it is worth every penny. Lots of suction power, long electrical cord and good accessories. cons, do not have a crevice tool, which is very important for it to be able to get in between narrow places. Especially on a car. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent machine for the money I just purchased this machine last week to replace my Shop Vac 5 gallon unit that started to make funny noises and smell. While I cannot yet speak to the durability of the Ridgid vac, so far I like the sturdiness of the machine. (the wheels on the Ridgid went on very easy, as opposed to the wheels on my old Shop Vac, which broke in the very early stages of use and were non existent by the time I threw it out last week!) I purchased the vac to use for clean up after some concrete work was done in my basement and was fairly satisfied with the suction in picking up dust and debris after the work was completed. I did have to manually pick up a few of the larger chunks of cement, but overall, I was pleased with the power. I do wish the nozzle was larger and the angle of it seems to be a bit odd - I found that I had to adjust the way I held the wand to keep the suction at its peak performance. But, again, for the amount of money I could afford, this machine seems to be quite adequate.

I can't seem to get the extension wand to connect to the hose. Is there a trick to this? It just doesn't seem to fit right.

Asked by: PaulW

What is the filter mesh size?

What is the smallest particles that it will filter out? Dust, pollen, mold?
Asked by: Scotster
Vacuum comes with a single pleat paper filter VF4000 for large dirt/sawdust size. You can purchase a 3 layer filter VF5000 for dust/drywall dust or a 5 layer HEPA filter VF6000 for pet dander/mold/pollen. The VF7000 is a foam filter for use during wet vacuuming.
