Rated 3 out of 5 by from very good product at a reasonable price While it is too soon to know how "durable" this product is {I've only had it for about a week} I can attest to the fact it is very easy to assemble and to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this 3.5 hsp one from Home Depot to replace my stolen 5 hsp Craftsman. Bought this 3.5 hsp one from Home Depot to replace my stolen 5 hsp Craftsman. So far it is doing really well. I like the convenience of a bag insert. I like the weight of the smaller unit and it does clean well for a 3.5 hsp. Still figuring out which attachments will work for me. Have the water pick up filter in case I need to make the switch. It was built in to the craftsman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good suction, needs improvement Nice sturdy vac with good suction. If you buy extra tools the storage options are kind of antique . Needs a better way to store extra tools instead of on the sides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacing a 12 gal shop vac Our old 12 gal. Ridgid shop vac's motor overheated and stopped. So, I am trying this smaller model. I am disappointed in it's lack of power, but it was less expensive. It seems like it should have more attachment, only one does not cut it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Return vac not strong enough motor Return vac for a stronger 20 gallon vac Ridgid and suction is a lot stronger

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, great wet/dry vac Very happy with this unit. I have used it to clean out gutters on my house, setting it up on a ladder. It is light enough to set up well, and heavy duty enough to really pick up the dirt. Truthfully - it fell from the ladder twice - my own fault - and there was no impact to the unit or its operation.

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
Dear PaulW, The hose and the wands should connect together without any special tricks needed. We would like to know more about your concerns. Please call our customer support number at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or send an email to [email protected],com so we can address your concerns further. Regards, RIDGID® Customer Support

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.
