Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best Rigid Vacuum I've had a few Rigid vacuums over the years with no issues. However, this unit was a disappointment only for one reason to me. The motor unit top sits a bit loose when snapped onto the lower bin. The first time I used the unit was to vacuum clean up bits of broken plaster. When done and picking up vacuum by the handle and setting it down, a puff of dust come out from around the gap where the top connects to the lower bin (not a good seal). Other models usually have two hasps that clamp for a good seal. This model uses a different "press down and snap" connection that I found to be an issue. The store accepted my return with no issues and I picked up another Rigid with actual clamps and used it immediately. Night and day difference on this one little detail. I am satisfied with the exchange and my new Rigid (it is the stainless steel drum wet/dry vac).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Great vac, however, I find it too load - that's why 4 stars. I bought the Muffler/Air Diffuser which did not help with the noise but helped reduce the blowing of air which is a big plus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought new and was used already I opened the box and the vacuum apparently had been repackaged after someone had already used it. The filter is clogged and the base still had saw dust inside. Ridiculous

Is there a filter bag included with the vacuum?

Asked by: Joe W
Not a bag, just the accordion paper filter you see in the picture

For wet vacuum to clean the carpet, what filter I need to use? for clear water, the pleated filter can be removed, how about the dirty water?

Asked by: Barry
Dear Barry, Thanks for asking. Please note that when picking up small amounts of liquid the paper filter may be left in place. When picking up large amounts of liquid we recommend that the filter be removed. If the filter is not removed it will become saturated and misting may appear in the exhaust. The VF7000 or VF3700 wet filter is recommended for high volume liquid pick-up. This filter adds protection for your vacuum during wet pick-up by keeping water-borne debris out of the motor. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our 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 and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

How would the water then be emptied from the tank? Would I have to carry the machine to the sink and turn it upside down? I mean, would there be a drain hose to release the water? Thanks.
