Also, minimal instructions. So, you better know how to work with the parts using common sense. I would have liked an adapter to smaller/narrower access.

The Rigid Wet/Dry Vac works great. it’s the perfect size and best of all it does not tip over when you pull the hose like every other vac I have owned. It performs like it should and I am amazed when something actually WORKS.

I have only used it a couple times but I'm liking the power, portability and compactness very much. I bought some fine dust filters with it and was surprised one came with it which isn't clear by the box. The think is alot easier to store than the bigger bucket like designs and worth the extra few bucks than the 3.5 to get the extra suction

I bought the VT2520 2 - 1/2” dia. hose so I can vacuum larger items. Other vacs this size are always only 1- 7/8” or smaller so this is a tremendously useful option. You’ ll have to buy all new 2 1/2” accessories, unfortunately. Also great thing is the option for a HEPA filter! The unit comes with a good filter, however. Locks are at the important connections so they don’t come out. The lid buckles down very securely. Also available as an option is a muffler. It definitely reduces the noise significantly , with some reduction in suction. It also prevents the exhaust air from blowing everything around. It is easily removed or added as needed.The unit is pretty loud without it, though not as loud as my old Craftsman shop vacs. The vac has a place to store the cord and an onboard bin! Ridgid has thought of everything!

Is this big enough vacuum for wet vacuuming? There is just about 2" gap only between the suction cup and the canister bottom, seems like too little for any wet work, isn't it? Thank you

Asked by: Customer
Hello RIDGID Customer, Thanks for asking! This vacuum does a great job in picking up small amounts of water such as leaks, spills, cleaning wet carpet or floors. You could use the supplied filter for small amounts of wet pickup or buy a separate wet foam filter VF3700 to further protect the motor. If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

Had this machine almost 10 years and today was using, turned off and would not come back on again. (had been using for dryer lint so nothing big and drastic) I cannot find the bill - does anyone know if Ridgid will stand behind it. Weekend - can't call.

How is this for sucking up water from a 250 gal. water tank?

Asked by: decoratordale
It is powerful to pick up the water, however, you may want to consider getting a larger vacuum. With this vacuum sucking up close to 1 gallon per minute, you would be emptying the drum very frequently. This 4 gal, is recommended more for accidental spills than for large volumes of water.

I bought a wd 40700 vacuum and it said to use a vf 3501 bag. On the bag it says to put the bag on between the two rings on the intake. My vacuum only has one ring, so I put it on between the one ring and the housing. Do I need a different intake.

Asked by: Jack
Don't worry, you've done it right. The inlet now only has one ring, and it is enough to hold that bag's elastic mouth in place.

will adding a 2 1/2 inch hose to this vacuum give me more or less suction or no difference in performance

Asked by: Anonymous
You will have less suction - but it may not be noticeable. Think of blowing a pea through a straw - or a pringles tube... the larger your pipe diameter, the more air required to move an object through it. That being said, the difference may be measured in a lab, but I have used my 2" shop vac hose and it performed OK.. not great - but "ok".
