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.

Features

  • 6.0 Peak HP Motor provides powerful suction to handle tough jobsite clean-up
  • Scroll Noise Reduction® is a patented feature that provides quiet operation by precisely controlling the flow of air through the vac
  • 4 Swivel Casters provide easy 360° mobility
  • Quick Release on-board accessory holder offers storage space for 5 accessories plus the hose
  • 2-Piece Drum provides improved, more rugged construction to meet the higher demands found on the job site
  • 3-layer Fine Dust Filter captures fine dust particles such as dry wall dust
  • 7' Dual-Flex® Locking Hose resists collapsing and adds 180˚ flexibility at both hose ends. Hose locks onto vac for uninterrupted cleaning
  • Large Carry Handle allows easy lifting of vac into service vehicle
  • Long 20’ Cord wraps neatly around carry handle

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 336 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 I like the the product pretty well. I like the power of this vac, wish the hose was longer and there was a way to store it on the unit it would also be nice if there were a higher handle for moving it around when going from one place to another. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Wet / Dry Vac This Vacuum is perfect for household or commercial applications. They are powerful, easy to use, and durable. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Insanely Quiet! I love how quiet this shop vac is while running. I was using it with the bags that go inside of the bottom of the vac and they worked awesome as well. Very impressed with the vacuum. January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprise how quite unit is compared to my old one. Very powerful and easy to set up for use out of box. Happy with the purchase of this shop vac will use in my small wood shop about 18 feet by 24 feet. Right now hook t up to a few tools to keep dust down when cutting and sanding wood. Was surprise how quiet motor is and the power. January 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has a great feature when using the wet portion, it has a valve on it so you do not have to lift it to drain it. This Wet.Dry Vacuum is very durable and easy to use. I find the drain on the front very easy to empty the canister when using it to vauum up wet items. January 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Power and Dependable I chose this vacuum because I have owned several shop-vac units including one that the switch went bad and two from Lowes that died within a few months for unknown reason...and my Paramus had a Rigid I had borrowed and it always worked great. So far mine has been the same...works flawless and good attachments and ease of filter change. I do wish it had a better storage of the cord when not in use. January 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by To early to tell. Got as a Christmas present. Has been to cold to work in garage, so I haven't had opportunity to use it much. Check back in the spring. January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the small garage workshop I have a small 3rd-car garage workshop that is tight on space. Previously, I'd purchased a 1-hp portable dust collector from Harbor Freight to remove sawdust from my woodworking power tools, but it just didn't have a powerful enough vacuum capability. This Rigid vacuum really does the trick, pulling the sawdust from a 14-inch band saw, a drum sander, a router table, or from numerous kinds of sanders with incredible force. I even have it hooked up to an in-line cyclone separator and it still performs well. January 16, 2016

Answer: 
Don't have a DB meter handy but it is a shop vac, it will be hard to hear if you are in a small room. This unit is MUCH quieter than the unit it replaced. It is better than older units.

Answer: 
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?

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

When vacuuming liquids, please take note that when picking up small amounts of liquid the filter may be left in place and when picking up large amounts of liquid we recommend that the filter be removed. If the filter is not removed, it will become saturated and misting may appear in the exhaust.

We hope this meets your needs.

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to [email protected]

Answer: 
If you can removed the filter it would be better, if you must be aware you will need to purchase a replacement sooner than later. Once the filter gets wet you loose ALOT of suction and cause the motor to run hotter, continued use like this will cause the motor to fail, Just like covering your radiator in your car and going down the highway, it will do it but not for long.

Better to just remove, also gives you a chance to clean it and keep the unit running at its best.
