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 DiegoB from Easy on/off switch and simple. House has a basement that got flooded during hard rain. We started with buckets, after we knew we had to buy a rigid vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALGOS from Good vac and very powerful picking up debri The vacuum is great although they could have made the casters on the bottom more heavier duty. they only last about a year then they start rubbing the caster covers, which makes it harder to roll. This vacuum has more suction power than any other vacuum out there!

Rated 1 out of 5 by VacMaster01 from Not Impressed Just returned it to Home Depot yesterday. I went off reviews and past experience with Ridgid on choosing this model. It is well built and a lot nicer having a quieter motor but the suction was not there. My old worn out Ridgid 5.0 could pull a lot more out of the carpet after going over it with the new vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DashBlastR from So far, so good So far, so good. I just purchased this and am still in the process of cleaning my shop with it. I'll hook it to my dust collection in the coming days. I'm replacing a 5 year-old ShopVac 16 Gal/6.5 HP that just groaned one day and then wouldn't come on again. That one was big and bulky and this 14 Gal/6.0 HP is a little smaller - hoping the size will make some difference. It seems powerful enough and I look forward to using this often and for many years. I'm real curious what the grooves on top of the motor are for though. Anyone with any ideas?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brewster from Fits my sawdust collection system After years of a small (6 gallon) Shop Vac, this one seems awfully bulky, and because of the large hose size, seems to have less vacumn power. I haven't used it enough to make a solid determination yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lillith from best wet/dry vac around I love my new Ridgid, I have another Ridgid that is twenty years old and I actually use it to vacuum leaves up from my driveway and also to keep my woodshop clean. That is what prompted me to get the new 14 gallon Wet/dry vac when my house canister died. It works perfect, suction is awesome and the carpet /floor attachment works great. Don't know why I didn't do this before. The length of the cord is awesome, only have to move it once to get the whole house; and it is so quiet. Love it, would recommend it to everyone.

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.
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@example.com. Regards, RIDGID

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