Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 177 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small and Powerful This is great for my small condo. It does not take up much space, but it packs enough power similar to a bigger vacuum. While the 'dustpan' option sounded great at first for quick pickups, I rarely use it. It's great for using in the car, and for small projects. May 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome. Best on the market. Out performs any other for the size. A great product May 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful! Very impressed with the power behind this vac. I use it for picking up aluminum shavings in carpet and dirt/rocks out of 3/8 wide X 3/8 deep grooves in floor tracks for automatic doors. This vac makes my old Dewalt cordless ashamed of itself. May 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product Bought this for cleaning the power skids in our engineering lab, so we wanted something lightweight and portable. this fit the bill perfectly! Unit has a lot of power, the only reason I did not give it an excellent overall, was because it only comes with one tool. Ridgid should consider supplying the crevis and brush tool to make it a complete package. May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful vacuum, with great suction and portability It has performed well for the time I have owned it. It's very light and easy to carry. It has a nice design for the small jobs. It’s a good match with his big brother for the large jobs. Worth the money. March 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by great for car interiors pros great power light weight cons hose needs to be longer onboard attachments do not stay in the clips keep falling off !!! March 10, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice little unit... however It would have been nicer if the electrical and the hose inlet were on the opposite side as opposed to its current location and the motor can only be set in place one way. Other than that I think it's a pretty good little unit. March 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small but Strong This unit is great for size when on a ladder to do little clean ups but also strong like the 14 gal. ones I have also. Like others brands, most you cant use a dust bag let alone a filter but this one you can use both. The non kink hose is the best! They should think about using this hose on the bigger models as well but longer of course to come with all units. March 1, 2016

Vacuum Bag

I own the Rigid WD1450 vac and love it. Was looking for a portable unit as well. Does this smaller vac have an option to use vacuum bags in addition to the filter. I prefer to use the bags in addition to the filter when picking up drywall dust. Thank you.

Answer: 
Yes, BUT the bag is made for the 4.5 and the 3 gal units so it's size in the 3 gal unit is too big thus preventing it from fully opening up for debris.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting RIDGID.

It is not recommended to use a filter bag on the WD3050 3 gallon portable pro wet/dry vac because the drum is small and the bag will not fully expand inside. For drywall dust pickups, you could upgrade the filter with VF3500 fine dust filter (blue) sold at Home Depot stores.

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]

Regards,
RIDGID
