    Overview

    Model # WD1482 Store SKU # 1001115422

    The RIDGID Detachable Blower Vac 53 Litre (14 Gallon) Professional Wet Dry Vacuum is two tools in one! This innovative design lets you remove the vacuum power head from the drum, and with the attachment of the blower wand, this vac turns into a handheld shop blower. Power is not sacrificed, as this shop vacuum packs a 6.0 peak horsepower motor with patented Scroll Noise Reduction for quieter operation. It has the suction to tackle the messiest jobs and the blower outperforms many dedicated leaf blowers in the market with blowing speeds up to 270 km/h (170 mph). The caddy on this vacuum conveniently keeps the blower wand and accessories close at hand. Equipped with an oversized drain opening that allows for quick liquid removal; making disposal more convenient than dumping. It features the patented tool-less Qwik Lock Filter Fastening System that makes installing or removing your filter quick, easy, and secure. Accommodates all RIDGID 2-1/2 inch (6.4 cm) diameter accessories.

    1. Includes VF4000 Standard Cartridge Filter, 2-1/2 inch x 7 ft. Dual-Flex Hose, Two 20.5 inch Extension Wands, Utility Nozzle, Wet Squeegee Nozzle, Car Nozzle, Blower Wand and Two Dust Collection Bags.
    1. Two Tools in One! The heavy-duty 6.0 peak horsepower rated motor simply detaches, converting into a handheld blower.
    1. 2-1/2 inch diameter by 7 ft. Dual-Flex Locking Hose resists crimping and collapsing, and adds 180-degree flexibility at both hose ends.
    1. 20 ft. (6 m) power cord combined with 7 ft. (2.1 m) hose provides 27 ft. (8.1 m) of total reach.
    1. Peak Horsepower represents a level at or below the maximum horsepower output of an electric motor tested in a laboratory using a dynamometer.
    1. Litres (or gallons) indicated reflect drum volume, not necessarily collection capacity actual capacity dependent upon type of debris collected, condition of filter and other factors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum AND blower Well made- larger hose size is great, nice to have a blower on deck when needed. Have had a Ridgid before and they last almost forever( even with heavy use) so I hope this one will serve me well too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value, decent vacuum I bought this as a "special buy" around xmas time. Other than not being able to find it in the first store I went to, despite them having 5 in stock, It has been a great buy. I mostly use it for a dust collector system for my saws, with a homemade cyclone separator in between. Pros: Excellent power, while not as bulky as most 6hp vacs plastic drum, won't rust out like my "stainless" shop-vac good range of accessories, worth almost the price of the vacuum Detachable blower is good bonus, if you already need the vacuum Onboard storage for attachments lid clamps lock securely, not flimsy Filter is easy to remove and clean, no parts to loose comes with standard 2-1/2" hose, not 1-7/8" Cons: detachable blower design makes carrying it a bit awkward, as there is no solid central handle on the body no wide brush nozzle or round duster brush no wet filter included, although the paper one CAN be used for small spills Overall, good vacuum, great value for what you pay. Pick up a couple more attachments, and a wet filter, and you have an extremely versatile, cost-effective vac with a lifetime warranty. On a side note, if using it for saw dust extraction, look up bucket dust separators online. They are fairly cheap and easy to make, and prevent 95-100% of dust from even reaching the vac, so the filter never gets clogged, so no loss of suction and longer vac life

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power + Rigid lifetime warranty Pick up this unit on sale, but its still a bargin at full price. The 6 hp, 2 inch hose and large 14 gal capacity sucks up a lot of dirt. I use mine with a bag. Replacement bags are a bit expensive from rigid, but you can shop around and pick up 4 bags for the price of their 2. Although I have not used the feature yet, the detachable leaf blower has lots of air power for leaves.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built well Sad to see it almost $40.00 cheaper than the one I bought just a month ago. It does what it is supposed to do! Blows and sucks :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Vac - Does The Job - It "Sucks" :) I purchased this vac at my local Home Depot. So far it's been pretty good. One great feature is the 6 HP. This vacuum certainly has some power. It has strong suction that is quite good. The blowing feature where you can take the motor off is excellent. I was able to blow a ton of leaves off my driveway. A couple of negatives are that it's a little clunky moving it around with all the accessories. Another negative is the attachments are not the greatest. I tried vacuuming my car but had trouble using one of the attachments to any success. I would like an attachment like you find at car vacs at the gas station. Overall it's a decent vacuum.

    Would this be appropriate to hook up to mitre saw for dust/chips collection?

    Asked by: Bory
    I use this on my sliding miter saw, and it works fine. The only issue is that most miter saws, as well as many other smaller tools like sanders and routers, use 1-1/4" hoses, while most full size vacs use 2-1/2". I simply used a hose off of a smaller shop vac, or you can get cheap adaptor kits to reduce the size of the hose. These also let you use other size attachments
