Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is Not the worst shop Vac I have ever owned/used. It is Not the worst shop Vac I have ever owned/used. When it is new out of the box it works well but it does not take long for it to start losing suction and eventually break. I have gone threw 3 just this year. I finally registered my new shop vac so maybe when this one breaks it will be covered under the warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, lightweight yet well built! I didn't rate on durability as I've only had this vac a week, however there's no reason to think it won't last. It seems very well built and I'm impressed by the power it has and as a bonus it runs very quietly. So far I've only used it as a wet vac to clean up water cause by spring flooding in my basement, this was ongoing for 4 days and I was sucking up water every couple of hours. This vac performs like a champ and made it an easy chore. My old shop vac was a 10 gallon Stanley Fat Max and the motor seized after only 3 years of light home use...not impressed. Using this new Ridgid vac is such a treat. Another thing to note is that unlike the Stanley vac, when sucking up water the Ridgid does not make an additional mess by blowing it out of the exhaust...I like that. Thanks Ridgid!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard time with saw dust I cut a few shelves for my self; when I wanted to vacuum up the saw dust I used the flexible hose on the work bench. The shop vac was having a hard time picking up the pile of saw dust. So I used a brush and dust pan to get rid of my saw dust. Also the blow on the shop vac is so weak it's not even worth trying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and powerful Just getting started, but bought this to attach to a table saw and chop saw to reduce clean up time. Working well so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful motor and suction So far I have had the unit for about a week, it's hooked up to a dust deputy and then hooked up to my CNC machine. The combination works good for providing a powerful suction and dust separation, plus makes emptying much easier.

What are the decibel levels for the WD1450 and the WD1851

Asked by: mkaibel
uhhh...call me lame, but a "decible meter" is NOT a piece of equip. that anyone I know (including myself) would tend to purchase...so I can't answer this question. IF the owners manuel lists the decible level, I'm not about to go fish for that info. Sorry. That's an unusual question to ask a custormer. Decible level? Really?

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.

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.

What is the duty cycle for WD1450?

Our new porch with insulated floor has water trapped between flooring deck and plastic sheeting over floor joists, and I need to get rid of the water before laying carpet. Since the flooring panels are tongue/groove, it would be extremely difficult to remove, so I am using my shop vac to draw water from a wet seam with the utility nozzle... hopefully, this works. I have run it for 10 minutes without any sign of overheating, but I would like to know how long it can run before needing a rest. Duty cycle isn't specified, but if it is 100%, I expect I can run it hours rather than minutes. An expert opinion from Ridgid would be greatly appreciated.
Asked by: FoxMan
Hi FoxMan, We do not have the duty cycle - you have defined as how long it can run before needing a rest published. However, we have received testimonies from customers who have used this vacuum overnight in cleaning up flooded basements without any problems. This involved the cycle of filling up the drum and dumping out the water all through the night. To prevent the vacuum from overheating, it is strongly recommended that you read and fully understand the safety instructions on the owner’s manual. It is important to NOT leave Vac running while UNATTENDED - you may fail to notice important signs indicating abnormal operation such as loss of suction, debris/liquid exiting exhaust, or abnormal motor noises. Immediately stop using Vac if you notice these signs. You may also want to use other accessories that can draw water from the wet seam. The narrower the end and the closer you can get to the water, the better. You may also use the blower feature of you WD1450 to help dry the surface. Hopefully these tips help. For any further questions or concerns you may call customer service at the number above or you may send your email to [email protected] Regards, RIDGID
