Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Vac I purchased his vac based on the reviews, the sale price and the fact that it included all the extra attachments. Overall I am very pleased with the purchase. The only minor complaints is that the cord is too long to effectively wrap around the carrying handle. And there are so many attachments that some of them have to be stored somewhere besides the vac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Vac, love the size, power and all the car... Great Vac, love the size, power and all the car detailing attachments (came with special deal). Only complaint is the filter. It gets clogged with sawdust and some fine powder, I think they make a "fine particle" filter which would hopefully help. Overall, I'd say its a pretty good buy.

What filter(s) are included?

What filter(s) are included? Pictures and overview say VF5000 (blue); specification says VF4000. I need a vac with the VF5000 for drywall dust.
Asked by: Donnie
I'm not sure what's going on but I think Home Depot is combining Q&A's for some products. I bought this as a special buy with the auto detailing kit. It shows the 3 layer fine dust filter (blue) and description says that one. Mine came with it (blue).

Can I attach a water house to this unit to drain out the water?

Can I attach a water house to this unit to drain out the water?
Asked by: kensley
Dear kensley, Thank you for your question. Yes, we have two accessories for the drain. First we have the VP2000 Pump Accessory which pumps water up to 10 gallons per minute, up to 40 ft. high. Secondly, the VT2519 Hose to Drain Adapter which connects the vac drain to a standard garden hose for liquid disposal. Note that the vac must be turned off when using either one of these accessories. If you want to know more about these products, please 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 discuss it with you.

Is an adapter included to enable me to connect the larger and smaller hoses together to improve reach for small loads?

Is an adapter included to enable me to connect the larger and smaller hoses together to improve reach for small loads?
Asked by: JSCH
The adapter I saw was supposedly for using the car detailing accessories on a larger hose however, that doesn’t mean that it might also work for connecting the larger hose to the smaller hose. Myself, I didn’t try it.
