Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, price, plenty of suction. I’m going to look for attachment to reduce size of hose for tighter areas. Good quality, good price, life time warranty, plenty of suction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs I purchased this Ridgid product based on my full satisfaction with a similar Ridgid shop vacuum that is our other home. The primary use will be to clean up dust, debris, sawdust and plaster dust produced through the construction of a model railroad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and Relatively Quiet My Ridgid 16 gallon stainless steel vacuum was stolen on a job site. I selected this model because (1) being plasric, I hoped it wouldn’t build up a static charge and shock me the way the stainless model did, (2) it is smaller, and the filter always clogged before I got the larger model a third full, and (3) the price was much less. I only gave it four stars because it didn’t come with an upholstery or floor brush. I recommend also purchasing the optional muffler.

can i wet vac with paper filter

Asked by: jerryrusty
It is not recommended. Depending on your use you can remove the pleated paper filter or purchase a sponge type filter that will replace the pleated paper filter.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851

I just bought one of these and the directions say the casters will 'snap' into place, but they do not. They just fall out. Is this right?

Asked by: bkay
No, the casters should not fall out. You may not be applying enough force to get them to snap into place. I had to press pretty firmly with my hand to get them to lock in but once they did, all is well. I do not recommend using a hammer or other tool. That could damage the casters. Do it by hand only and find a helper if need be.

hoses

Will the WD1450 accept standard non locking hoses as well?
Asked by: dresnik
I had an extra hose from my last vac and it fit, but I believe I had to use the 3 piece adapter kit.
