Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has a high performance but it has a lot of problems This vacuum has a great suction. But the intake port gets plugged up easily if I vacuum leaves or grass clippings or other soft items , plus it tips over on carpets easily. It also is prong to tipping over.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from At first, it was ok, but then I used it As others have repeatedly said, it falls over. Maybe not when you look at it but as soon as you lean down to turn it on. Bam! on to the floor. It does suck, that is good. I knew that being small the hose would get clogged a lot so I don't know that like some people do. It is not a design flaw, it is an idiot not knowing what their needs are. The filter that came with is horrible. First time cleaning it it fell apart, actually it may have fell apart just by using it. Can't be sure. But, DO NOT USE WATER ON THE FILTER THAT COMES WITH IT, as it is paper and falls completely apart when you clean it. And, the bolt screws that hold the hold down handles on to the base are not stainless and have already rusted to where they are unusable. So, overall, pretty disappointed in it. You would think a wet/dry vac would come with a wet/dry filter. And some stainless bolts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Powerful vac with design flaws I've owned this vac for about a year. It's powerful and does the job. But there are two design elements that drive me nuts. One, the hose-accessory connecting system is seriously flawed. Unless each piece is clean (unlikely for a shop vaccum) they don't click into place and they easily come apart. Did anyone actually use this system in a dirty shop before they approved the design? The other issue is the size of the wheels. They're so small that when they try to cross over the cord (which is inevitable), the vacumm canister tips over. If the wheels were larger, the unit could roll over the cord and not fall over on its side. I was surprised by these design shortfalls because I own several other Ridgid power tools and they are all well-designed and function exceptionally well. I have attached a photo that shows how poorly the connector system functions. In order to make the pieces lock together, you first have to clean them, which is annoying and time-consuming.

I intended to use same tools for the new vacuum but of course they are too large for this vacuum with smaller hose. Seems to have good suction but have not got it dirty yet. Not what I expected.df

I need to replace the seal on the vacuum head to the thank on WD64250 shop vacuum 

Asked by: Rusty8767
Dear Rusty8767, Thank you for asking. There is no seal between the power lid and drum assembly of the WD6425. There’s a small play between the lid and the drum of the vacuum, loose-fitting lid will not affect the performance of the vac and it will have a tight seal during operation. If you are referring to a different part you may call us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800- 474-3443) or you may send your email to info@ridgidvacs.com or info.info@emerson.com. Kindly provide the model of your vacuum when you call. Regards, RIDGID® Customer Support

How do I change the filter?

Asked by: Crys77
Hello Crys77, Thanks for asking. To remove the filter, Hold the filter tabs of the Qwik Lock™ filter in each hand.. With one thumb on the Qwik Lock™ stud, which protrudes through the integrated filter plate, lift up on the filter tabs while pushing down on the stud. This action will cause the filter to release from the filter cage. Slide filter off cage. To install it back, Carefully slide the Qwik Lock™ filter over the filter cage and press down on the outside edge of the filter until the rubber gasket on the bottom of the filter seats securely around the base of the filter cage and against the lid. Align the small center hole in the top of the filter over the Qwik Lock™ stud on the filter cage. Press firmly on top of the filter near the stud to allow the filter to snap over the ball on the end of the stud. If you require additional guide on this, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Wet/Dry Vac Customer Support

Does it have an optional vacuum bag 

Asked by: Lynn2
Not that I am aware of. The unit is quite simple to operate and clean including blowing out the dirty filter by putting the hose on the exhaust port and cleaning the filter. On a side note I use the same setup with the hose on the exhaust port and without a filter to blow out the water from my in ground pool lines each fall. The machine is powerful enough to push all the water out.
