Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product worked very well on a large project I had. The product worked very well. My only criticisms are that when I cleaned the filter with water it took a long time to dry before could use it again. Replacement filters are expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working well I got this vac for use in the garage to help keep things clean instead of sweeping and so far so good! Has good suction, easy to pull around behind me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a Great Little Vacuum,Lots of Suction The only Negative I can see is the hose that connect to the machine dosnt stay attached, falls off. Cord is a little short could be longer to reach other areas without having to change plugs

Rated 4 out of 5 by from has good suction, works well purchased to keep area around my fireplace cleaned up daily. Works well for this task. Did not come with a crevice tool and is the one attachment I needed most...had an old crevice tool that works ok. Hose is on the flimsy side and will kink easily, but works ok. Satisfied with this unit so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from An easy to use product, but not very powerful The vac itself, like every Ridgid vac, was easy to assemble and set up. The power, however, left much to be desired. It had trouble picking up small paint chips from the drywall, and even the dust proved challenging. Perhaps it was the leaks in the hose clamps that prevented its potential from being fully realized. A great disappointment, as I have used Ridgid vacs in the past, and have been quite impressed with all that have come before. I have returned this vac to the location from which I purchased it.

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.

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.
