You know what I need? Accessories for a Rigid vaccuum. You know what is a ripoff? Accessories for a Rigid vacuum! HD wants FIFTY BUCKS for a hose and some plastic attachments! Fuuuuuuuck that.

Have someone install gutter guards -- best money I've spent on the house. I had the front gutters replaced and gutter guards installed on the whole house for $1100, IIRC. Haven't worried about the gutters since, and we have a massive crepe myrtle overhanging the front, which drops flowers, branches, leaves, and seeds like it's raining.

Any 2.5" hose and accessories will fit. Vac hoses are standardized for the most part. Just be sure you get the right size.

She is a beauty. I installed a vortex system on top using youtube as reference. I love this vacuum. Lifetime warranty from rigid is the best. Make sure to register.

Thanks! But I have a neighbor with fine screen gutter guards… and a little tree growing out of a gutter. To which I thought, if I have to still clean them AND take them off? Nope not paying for that "privilege" 😝

I hope your screens hold up 🤞🏻

Which one? Mine just burned out. Why are the pro ones not on HD's site, I thought they owned Ridgid?

Emerson owns Ridgid. Home Depot is just one of several retailers that sell them.

I'm a contractor, and we have done all the vums including that big silver $200 monster. That was one of the worst.

This is one of the best. And that blower on top is handy. Just got to get filters at HD.

Don't forget the filter alone saves you $15-25

Do Craftsman filters fit this Ridgid vac?
There are universal ones fitting both, but specs seem to indicate that Ridgid filters are 0.6 in taller than Craftsman ones.
My Craftsman 12 gal just died and I still have a bunch of filters that I'd like to be able to use...

I went to the store and there was one with the label stating it comes with extra 2 bags included. None of the other boxes said so. I paid for it and opened it right away and there are 2 bags.
Did anybody else get it with bags?
I know it is not much. I think the 2 pack of bags is like $17 but it is nice I don't have to pay for them. I was looking for a smaller profile one but the extra bags pushed me to buy it.

Had the older version of the big orange Ridgid with the handle, turned it on the other day and smoke came out of the top. Just put a new hose, w/ all new attachments, the wrap around filter bag, a HEPA filter and a new drain cap at the bottom....figures.
