Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful Little disapointed that battery only last for 2 min. of use on normal size battery. Could use a strap too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Being cordless is the main selling point. The door is flimsy though Good vacuum. Should have a place to store the accessories considering it's designed to be portable. The door on the battery compartment is flimsy and broke off within 2 days of using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like it should I bought this vac Because I do heating and air work and I need a vac to clean out furnaces and condensing units. I was worried because most of the reviews said it had extremely poor run time but If you use it only a minute or so at a time which is about all the time it ever takes to clean up what you would grab a wet dry vac for it really has pretty good runtime it is only when you continuously ruin it for 5 to 10 minutes that it will completely drain a 4ah battery. The plastic tub seems a little flimsy but really it is plenty sturdy enough for its use. Overall it is a very good tool and extremely handy to have the best praise I can give a tool I would use describing this and that is if it broke I would be back at the store buying another one that day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, powerful, good runtime Impressive power for a battery operated tool. 5aH battery lasted long enough to completely fill the vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sucking machine Since I already have some 18v Ridgid batteries and chargers, this vac was a shoe in. This is a real "sucker"! It's powerful which means a single battery won't last long. I get 3 min./Ah (no load), so approx. 12 min. with 4Ah batt. Definitely worth it if u already have the batts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super convenient Had to order this online, but this is a deal. Very powerful and easy to use. The hose is very good quality. Wish it had better storage for attachments. Perfect for most tasks

Will the hose fit into the exhaust side to use as a blower as well?

Can’t change filter

I can’t get the filter nut to unscrew. Any hints?
Asked by: Jpmatx
It doesn't unscrew, the filter just pops off, instructions are in the manual.

Low battery ?

I just purchased this vacum . I own 4 Ridgid 18volt Lithium batteries. 3, 2.0 AmH and one 4.0 AmH . I tried the 4.0 one first and after exactly 5 minutes ( not complaining at all about run time ) it started to go on and off . I figured if it was dying it would get weak then just shut off. I then tried a 2.0 AmH battery and after a while ( I didn't time this one) it gradually got weaker lower and gradually shut off. So is this normal for the vacum ? I called Ridgid they said they didn't know if the batteries could do that and recommended I return. Thank you for any help .
Asked by: CabinetGuy1981
Sounds like the vac has a problem. Maybe the battery was loose or pop loose. Because I can run mine on a 2.0 fully charged battery for over 10 mins easy. Yes as the battery gets close to running out of power it doses slow down just a bit and then it just shuts off completely. But it doesn't turn off then back on again that sounds like a connections issue to me. Maybe a wire is loose on the inside some ware from the factory. I would just go with what Ridgid Customer Service said and return for a new one.

Is the 18v cordless vac eligible for the Lifetime Service Agreement?

I recently purchased the cordless vac, and it very clearly states LSA eligible on the box. I am familiar with registering products for the LSA, and all of my other tools, once registered, show the warranty status. However once I registered the vac, (which incidentally required a separate login), there was no mention of the LSA. Please clarify.
Asked by: Derrick
No. This vacuum is registered thru not RIGID Power Tools which has the LSA. However, warrants the vac for lifetime. I assume it is the same warranty that covers their other shop vacs. Hope this helps.
