The RIDGID Blower Vac 60 Litre (16 Gallon) Professional Wet Dry Vacuum is two tools in one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my housewife-cleaning life! It's been a month now, and I love this machine! It has replaced by a vacuum and my broom for household cleaning. I use a brush attachment with it that I bought separately. I sweep the floors, the stairs, the walls, the counters, EVERYTHING! I wish I would've had this years ago. It is easy to roll around the house and lightweight to pick up. I love the handle holders on the bottom of the bucket hidden, but easy to find to pick up. It is also easy to dump and clean. I bought 2 filters so I could use my RIDGID to suck one clean while the other is in use- So I clean the filters in between use to save money. I LOVE THIS MACHINE! I can't imagine ever going without it again, and I have already recommended it to several friends and family. The blower is also strong- I blow off my carport. It is not very loud either, surprisingly. There is enough room to attach many accessories to it- I can fit 11-12 accessories on the holders. That's amazing! I keep it out to use daily and got a HEPA filter to clean the air... I'm in love LOL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Man does this thing SUCK!! (In a good way) This is the best vac I've had to date! Love it! It was a little hard getting the attachment thing connected, but, once it's on right, it doesn't come back off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power Using vac bags inside is great keeping dust contained and clean. The extra power of the motor makes a huge difference. No regrets with my purchase. I also learned about Rigid lifetime replacement warranty which makes the purchase even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful It’s great it’s powerful I used it to clean up a kitchen demolition, a bathroom demolition and a basement demolition and it is still going strong. Just clean the filter often to avoid any trouble.

This may be a dumb question but I don't want to break anything due to my lack of knowledge. Just purchased the 16 gallon dry/wet vac. When using a dust bag should I also keep the dry paper filter installed or should I take that out to not over heat?

Asked by: dwoman
Leave the cylindrical filter in even with the bag

How do you go from blower to vacuum&nbsp;

Asked by: Call me anything
Hello, Thank you for your inquiry about our product. Simply connect the hose to the suction port located on the orange drum. Note that whenever the vac is turned on, the air sucks in through the suction port and blows out at the same time from the exhaust port on the detachable leaf blower. If you have further questions or concerns, you may call Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or email us at info@ridgidvacs.com Thank you, RIDGID Customer Support

Do you make an adapter to go between PVC and shopvac hose? I want to plumb my garage with PVC and hook to my shopvac. I want to go from the vac to PVC with a hose so the vac is removable/portable when needed and have outlets in my garage as well

Dose this model need a wet filter when sucking up heavy basement water?

Asked by: foster
No ! Just take the dry filter off. Do Not get the filter wet, it&rsquo;ll ruin it.
