Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed exactly as expected. I wanted a light weight yet powerful wet/dry vacuum for use on a boat. This unit filled the bill perfectly. It is easy to carry up a ladder being light weight and compact. The suction is very good for a unit of its size. I was able to vacuum water out of a deep bilge area without difficulty. I am quite pleased with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product for price and size Product performs very well; easy to maneuver around tight spaces; great price. Only drawback is the hose should have been a couple of feet longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy powerful small sized shop vac Very handy for those little jobs around the house and especially work sites. Looks to have the Ridgid durability. Only drawback I see is it does tend to fall over very easily

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy, light and portable. It is great for smaller projects for the contractor and home owner. I purchased this vacuum because my larger Ridgid vacuum harder to use on smaller projects. I was very happy with the balance of portability and power, the expandable house, and the price. It is definately my 'go to' vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what I wanted for Very good power for a portable 18V vac. did not test durability yet with original power tools battery but my initial purpose for it was to inflate large pool toys and flotation raft since Ridgid inflators are still not available in Canada yet which have done a terrific job and very useful for car cleaning and at the cabin getting two tools in one. Nice and compact, but needed some additional accessories to use as a floor vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent vacuum - lots of power I really appreciate this little powerful vacuum. The only issue I had with it was the hose being so tight and short. It's hard to pull the hose to expand it. Have to carry it to vacuum things that are higher above the floor. It's lightweight so it's not that bad. The sucking power is really good and I'm impressed. Easy to tuck it away due to its small size. The extra accessories are awesome. Highly recommended, Shelley

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little vac You do need to get some accessories for it. It only came with a hose and no extensions.

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.
Asked by: BrianH
No, the internals of this vac are small, maybe the addition of a foam filter may help. I saw no options for a bag.
