    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial wet dry vac When I started working at a car dealership I was introduced to one of these vacuums. I had to buy one for myself and I absolutely love having a shop vac in my garage. I can use it to vacuum debris and vacuum out my car! Hopefully this vacuum will last me many many years!!

    My son purchased a used vacuum model WD 19560 Serial #12314 R 0271. He was told it was a year old but  it failed in about an hour of use. I took it apart and the motor is bad. It has a bad bearing and the thermal fuse is blown. What is the motor P/N?

    Is the metal canister water tight ? I am curious to see if the bottom rim will leak or have seapage.

    Asked by: Anonymous
    No it is NOT. And the stainless will begin rusting badly almost immediately. And the Ridgid will do absolutely noting to replace it, fix it, or help you in any way. Very poor quality. Pretty, but fragile and useless.
