Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wet/Dry Vac. Great sucking power. If the body was a little bigger, I wouldn't complain. Handy accessories as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This vacuum sucks! Pro: good suction, very light, doesn't take up much space Con: The retractable compressing hose is very difficult/impossible to use. When you pull on it to make it longer, the vacuum falls over. When you accidentally put full suction on something and the hose jerks, the vacuum falls over. I don't know why it has the larger hose (1 7/8"), you must use an adapter to fit on the attachments. There is no floor wand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, but the hose deaign is flawed Bought this to use only for car detailing. The power and attachments are great. He biggest downfall is the hose. It doesn’t extend. It’s too springy and when you try and extend it the shop vac flies towards you. It’s too light and the hose too much coil. Bad design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my purpose! This machine is exactly what I was looking for - small and relatively rectangular. I only have a small workshop so it is great to be able to put it on a shelf (not much wasted space like the round ones) and grab it after I've been working. I also purchased 2 of the extension wands to improve reach. The hose doesn't expand easily (at least when new)...... ymmv! It doesn't hold a great deal (note that the filter is large and takes up a lot of space in the "tank"), but it is quick and easy to empty. I've only had it about a week, but I am, so far, very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and small I’ve used it several times and it’s a powerful little machine we just love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The down side is that they are not enough attachment. Had to buy attachment separately. Excellent tool for the price. The vaccum is very powerful and not noisy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A week into using the vacuum, everything seems to work well. Too early for a durability comment. Where the two halves (Motor portion, and the collection portion) connect there is a small gap. Next time I go to the hardware store I purchase some foam tape to fill that gap.

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.
