Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for fireplace ash Along with the purchase of the shop vac I also purchased the Ridgid Fine Dust bag accessory. I am able to vacuum my fireplace ash easily with no mess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this vac has plenty of power/suction but the hose may as well be made of PVC. This vac has plenty of power I use it as a dust collector on my saws and sanders and it works fine for that. The hose that came with it was so inflexible I tossed it out, I was able to use the old (flexible) hose off of the ShopVac I was replacing. I would rate this vac higher if it had a real hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a nice unit. This machine sucks! It has plenty of suction to get the job done! I've had other wet/dry vacs and this one really does the job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shop vac. Stable and does not tip over easily like some small units! Great product at a reasonable price. Having the hose clip to the canister is a benefit over my old craftsman. The only downside is that the selection of tools supplied is limited. It would be nice to have a crevice tool included.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do not like the hoses Canister has great suction but I don't like the hoses at all, too big and bulky, no give, very stiff

drianage plug size ?

what is recommended to attach a hose or pipe for drainage with my Rigid 9 gal wet/dry vac ? Or what size adaptor ?
Asked by: Bran
the hose size is 1 7/8" diameter exactly

Where can I get an adapter that fits the 1 7/8" hose? I want to attach the unit to an outlet port from a tool.

Ridgid does not sell an adapter for 1 7/8" hose. Their alternative is to buy another hose that is 2".
