Ridgid Shop Vacuums



Ridgid shop vacuums, and other tools under the Ridgid name are made under the umbrella of Emerson, which is a vast diversified global manufacturing and technology company.

I can't find any information at all about the decibel levels for these shop vacuums, so you've got to suspect that they're not one of the best shop vacs in terms of noise. Ridgid have addressed this issue by introducing their "Scroll noise reduction system" and adding a muffler to some models.

Hepa standard filters are available for these shop vacs from Cleanstream.com, although I would recommend adding a cyclone to avoid frequent clogging.

As a dust extractor, the high cfm. 2.5 inch models work best. You'll find these towards the bottom of the page.
