Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great in our Metal Club, and the members love it! Of the many features, several stand out: 1) The wall mounting leaves more floor space, and makes it easier to clean-up; 2) We have it mounted between our two belt/disc sanders, and the "slinky" hose reaches both machines with ease; 3) Finally, we appreciate the "long" power cords on all our Rigid vacuums; 4) And, did I mention the lifetime warranty!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price I really like this vacuum; it's not too big for a home garage and the wall mount feature is great. I have only had this vacuum for about a week but it seems sturdy enough and performs well. The long extension hose is another matter; functionally it's fine, but it seems rather cheaply made. Imagine you went to Walmart and bought the cheapest shopvac they sold; this is the hose you'd expect to get with it. The lack of quality is more noticeable as the shorter flex hose is MUCH higher quality. Not a deal breaker, but if they're looking to improve the next revision of this product that would be my suggestion. Otherwise I'm very happy with my purchase and would still recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mountable product, Hose Length is an issue for me I love this vacuum, however I found the hose to be a little short even with the adapter hose attached. 20 feet gets used up pretty quick and the reason I bought this vacuum was because i wanted a car cleaning solution for my single car garage to clean the car in the driveway (and take wear and tear away from my canister household vacuum). The product photos for this make it appear this will be a simple feet but I can barely have enough room to get to the back seats of my car and need to reverse my car into the driveway to get to the trunk in my standard Nissan 4 door car. The vacuum mounted right at the end of my garage wall and straight out into the driveway. I wish the hose was about 10 feet longer. Everything else about the vacuum is awesome...easy to mount, easy to hang attachments and very well thought out product. If I can buy an extension hose I will.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but expensive for what it does. This review is for a Ash Dry Vac sold by Rigid at Home Depot that does not show up on the Rigid web site. What is up with that?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quietest shop vac I've ever used however beware of missing parts. There was a missing accessory part, and the hose is too short to reach the length of an average sized garage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The wall mount gets it up and out of the way on the shop floor. I haven't had it long enough yet to really give it a thorough evaluation, but it seems to work well. My only criticism so far is that the angle of the floor attachment forces a too upright handle for comfortable vacuuming.

Does this need a vacuum bag? I can't seem to find one for it?

all the other shop vacs I've owned had bags for the inside. does this one have one and it so what is the model #.
Asked by: MichaelTX
Thank you for contacting RIDGID. A filter bag is NOT REQUIRED for the RIDGID 5 Gallon Stor-N-Go Wet/Dry Vac. Also, because the drum of this vac is narrow, a filter bag will not fill up very much. For best results, you may use cartridge filters, similar to what came with your vacuum. There are 4 types of cartridge filters that you can use with your vacuum. 1. the VF4000 is for general purpose dirt; 2. the VF5000 is for fine dust like drywall dust or sawdust; 3. the VF6000 is designed for very fine filtration such as allergens, pet dander, and mold spores; and 4. the VF7000 for liquid pickups You can buy these filters on-line at www.ridgidparts.com using this link http://ridgidparts.com/accessories/vacfilters.phtml. We hope this information helps. If you need further assistance, feel free to send your email to [email protected] Regards, RIDGID

WD5500 - i want to use the carpet and hard floor nozzel, which i recently purchased, but this does not fit the rigid tubes for the floor-

The adapter that came with the carpet/hard floor accesory does not fit the extensions- where do i find the right part so that i can use this for carpets and hard floors in my shop? Thanks!
Asked by: MikeyC
Dear MikeyC, The WD5500 comes with 1 7/8" diameter hose. The accessories, including the extension wands, that came with the vacuum are also 1 7/8". We sell accessories locally through Home Depot, just make sure you choose the 1 7/8" size. You may also order accessories online through this link: http://ridgidparts.com/accessories/vacacc_eighth.phtml. Do let me know the part numbers of the nozzles that you bought so I may verify if there is a way to attach that to your existing hose. For any further questions or concerns you may call customer service at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to [email protected] Regards, RIDGID
