Model WD1450

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 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Highly recommend even though silencer quit working a few months in I love this shop vac. I actually use it for my house because I've got hardwood & tile and I wanted superior suction power to get all the fur and dust motes. It is very impressive how quite it is when it's being silenced properly. But something happened to mine a few months in and it is now very loud by comparison to when I first got it. That being said, it's still not that loud when you compare it to other shop vacs out there. So I'm still happy. I just need to send it in some day to have it taken apart and repaired. There is a muffler built in to this vac which I replaced, but that was not the problem. Overall, despite my issues I still highly recommend it. I've been using it regularly for a little over 2 years now. October 17, 2013
