This RIDGID® 14 gallon High Performance Wet/Dry Vac is designed to deliver the powerful suction, large capacity, and rugged construction in a more compact design than is offered in our largest cart type vacs. The vacuum’s 14 gallon drum size helps us achieve a more compact overall design but it still provides a big capacity capable of handling large job-site chores. The 6.0 peak HP motor delivers the high performance necessary to handle these chores. Other key features include; a 3-layer fine dust filter captures dry wall dust, accessories are stored on-board, casters provide 360° mobility. Add a top handle with a cord wrap, heavy duty 2-piece drum construction, a large drain and you’ve got a wet/dry vac that achieves the demands of Pro’s on the job site or in the shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent wet dry vac Very powerful, quiet, and complete wet/dry vacuum. The attachments work great for car detailing, though I had to make the opening of the claw tool smaller so it fits more tightly on the hose. I cut four slits in the opening and wrapped it with self amalgamating tape. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The products' greatest feature is its light weight Such an easy piece of equipment to assemble quickly - much lighter than earlier models - intelligent arrangement of extras.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from overall excellent product Extremely quiet. Good suction generally good features. Unfortunately no floor brush. Would have liked to purchase a size smaller but smaller sizes have the small hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its quieter than our last Rigid We had our last Rigid for 20 years did lots of renoing and still have a long way to go. So here's hoping this new one will last another 20 years. Excellent vacuum.

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.
