Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat small vacuum. Best small vacuum on the market. The only way to make it better is to include more tools and a better hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine Just what I wanted for vacuuming my cars. Just the right size to maneuver around in my garage. The power is unbelievable. I’m surprised how quiet it is. The price point is spot on, worth every penny. Just a fantastic machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from powerful and easy to handle Finally got around to using it to clean up after construction in my attic. I like the way it handles and its maneuverability. I wish there would be a lock for the hose to hook up to the pipes. It pulled apart a couple of times. It picked up some nails. It picked up wood pieces. I use the vacuum bags and they work great though I might go broke buying bags. It does the job I want it to do which is to fit in tight places and it is easy to lift over obstacles. The 15' long cord is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for us We don't do any hardcore shop work so it is mostly around the house for general use and it is perfect for us. Lightweight and easy to lift and carry and small enough to take in our passenger car. Even though it is small the is plentiful. I am very pleased with our purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from motor burned out the second time I used it I was very disappointed when the motor failed after only two times being used. I must commend Rigid for standing behind their product and sending a replacement at no charge. I hope to have better luck with this vac.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Have you checked the hose for obstructions something may have it clogged

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
