Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent machine for the money I just purchased this machine last week to replace my Shop Vac 5 gallon unit that started to make funny noises and smell. While I cannot yet speak to the durability of the Ridgid vac, so far I like the sturdiness of the machine. (the wheels on the Ridgid went on very easy, as opposed to the wheels on my old Shop Vac, which broke in the very early stages of use and were non existent by the time I threw it out last week!) I purchased the vac to use for clean up after some concrete work was done in my basement and was fairly satisfied with the suction in picking up dust and debris after the work was completed. I did have to manually pick up a few of the larger chunks of cement, but overall, I was pleased with the power. I do wish the nozzle was larger and the angle of it seems to be a bit odd - I found that I had to adjust the way I held the wand to keep the suction at its peak performance. But, again, for the amount of money I could afford, this machine seems to be quite adequate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great my husband is remodeling my sewing room and it is great for picking up the sawdust and anything else that lands on the floor. It has been awhile since I have had a large wet/dry vac as this since my husband and daughter usually make them disappear. I plan on using it around the house when in need of a large vac. Thank you RIgid for your product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT LITTLE MIGHT SHOP VAC I bought it for our work trailer. I work for a recycling company the place is pretty dirty and muddy at times. It works great getting up all the stones and dirty of the floor and the light dust of the shelves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Well bought it for water clean up and only one junky attachment thats not for water clean up,And paid 52.00 bucks and no attachments,Now how much for Sorry not worth the 52.00 bucks without the attachments or the one i needed for water clean up so I bought this vac for nothing but a show piece ! Now how much is it gonna cost me for the attachments another 52.00 dollars water will dry up before i get it cleaned up Bought my vac at Lowe's do they have the attachments in a package or do you have to mail order them from you people at a higher costly rate with shipping and handling charges to boot ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mid-sized shop vac at a great price! I love this mid-sized vac for handling both large and small jobs! Easy enough to carry in one hand with the top handle and yet strong enough to work all day in the garage or shop! Key features that I love are the self-locking hoses that prevent separation when pulling the vac behind you and the ability to add a fine dust filter for drywall dust. Also many attachments available. We purchased the steel floor wand with multiple attachments. After having many other brand name vacs over the years, I'd strongly recommend looking at the 6 gallon Ridgid vac!

I can't seem to get the extension wand to connect to the hose. Is there a trick to this? It just doesn't seem to fit right.

Asked by: PaulW
Dear PaulW, The hose and the wands should connect together without any special tricks needed. We would like to know more about your concerns. Please call our customer support number at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or send an email to [email protected],com so we can address your concerns further. Regards, RIDGID® Customer Support

What is the filter mesh size?

What is the smallest particles that it will filter out? Dust, pollen, mold?
Asked by: Scotster
Vacuum comes with a single pleat paper filter VF4000 for large dirt/sawdust size. You can purchase a 3 layer filter VF5000 for dust/drywall dust or a 5 layer HEPA filter VF6000 for pet dander/mold/pollen. The VF7000 is a foam filter for use during wet vacuuming.
