Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations! I bought this wet dry vacuum as a replacement to a more than 20 year old vacuum I had been using in the basement on woodworking project clean up and dust collection. I forgot how well a new tool could work. My buying decisions included smaller footprint though large capacity, powerful suction, lowest noise to performance consideration, accessories. I reviewed comparisons online and found that this model had excelled. It made my decision easy as i already own quite a few ridgid tools and none of them have disappointed me. I would recommend this product. PS.: I only gave it a 4 on durability because i have only had it for about two weeks. Too early to say at this point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product works well. The online product registration "is not easy to use." The model numbers online did not match model number on the box, missing a ZERO. The screens locked up and had to start over twice. I had the same issues on the drill and the sawsall. You need to fix the software issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blowing Port Ruins What Would Be an Excellent Vacuum Originally I bought the 16 gallon with detachable blower, not realizing that even when vacuuming the leaf blower speed exhaust air. I figured this model would not have the same poor design but unfortunately it does. I wanted a strong vacuum to clean and collect sheetrock/spackle dust, not blow it all around my house. The blowing port is a bad design, and the minute you turn on the vacuum in a room you want to clean, the force of the air from the blowing port kicks up all the dust in the room making it airborne and spreading it throughout the entire house. There should be some sort of baffle, blow port cover or redirection of air from the exhaust port when using it for this purpose, so instead of blowing air straight out, it is muffled and dissipated around the vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rugged product. As a female customer, I found the unit to be well built. I did have a bit of trouble installing the wheels. I appreciate the drain hole at the bottom so I never need to lift the unit when it's full of water! I've used it once and so far I feel I got my moneys worth. I have purchased the Ridgid product before so I know it's a good product and a good company to deal with. AP Maine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Got for Christmas and it hasn't had a ton of use yet but so far so good. No complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I’ve only had this a couple of days but so far it is excellent. I’m using a filter bag because I bought it to clean up debris during a bathroom demolition with lots of drywall and ceramic tile debris. It is the quietest shop vac I have ever owned and picked up everything I tried with no problem and no clogging. Time will tell how durable it is. Glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet vacuum, great power Wow! What a difference from one model to another. This is much more quiet and the suction is great. My other one was only used 3 months and the motor got hot and seized up, WD1640. Time will tell if light construction dust will have an impact on this unit. Do your self a favor and don't bother with the lifetime warranty from Ridgid a waste of time just go spend the 100 bucks. They need a lot better customer service if they are going to provide a "life time warranty". Just my thoughts.

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.

Is the airflow (CFM) of the vacuums measured at the end of the hose or at the opening on the canister?

Asked by: ShopDoc
The CFM (air flow) is measured by how much air is taken in through a round opening ranging from two inches to completely closed. Of course, there is zero CFM at no opening and maximum CFM at a two-inch opening.
