SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
The operation of any utility vac or blower
can result in foreign objects being blown
into the eyes, which can result in severe
eye damage. Always wear safety goggles,
not glasses, complying with ANSI
Z87.1(or in Canada CSA Z94-3-99)
shown on package. Everyday eyeglasses
have only impact resistant lenses. They
are not safety glasses. Safety Goggles
are available at many local retail stores.
Glasses or goggles not in compliance with
ANSI or CSA could seriously hurt you
when they break.
• To reduce the risk of hearing damage,
wear ear protectors when using the vac
for extended hours or when, using it in a
noisy area.
For dusty operations, wear dust mask.
Use only extension cords that are rated
for outdoor use. Extension cords in poor
condition or that are too small in wire size
can pose fire and shock hazards. When
using an extension cord, be sure it is in
good condition. Using any extension cord
will cause some loss of power. To keep
the loss to a minimum, use the following
table to choose the minimum wire size
extension cord.

Operation
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire or explosion, do not operate this vac in areas with
flammable gases, vapors or explosive dust in the air. Flammable gases or
vapors include but are not limited to; lighter fluid, solvent type cleaners, oilbase paints, gasoline, alcohol or aerosol sprays. Explosive dusts include but
are not limited to; coal, magnesium, grain or gun powder. Do not vacuum
explosive dust, flammable or combustible liquids or hot ashes. Do not use
this vac as a sprayer. To reduce the risk of health hazards from vapors or
dusts, do not vacuum toxic materials.
Extension Wands - These wands can be
connected together and provides additional length for more reach.
Hose - Provides transfer of vacuum or
blowing capability to work site. Provides
the means of attaching extension wands,
and nozzles.
CAUTION: To reduce risk of hearing
damage wear ear protectors when
using the vac for extended hours or
when using it in a noisy area. The
operation of any utility vac can result
in foreign objects being blown into
the eyes, which can result in severe
eye damage. Always wear safety
goggles complying with ANSI Z87.1
(or in Canada CSA Z94-3-99 ) shown
on Package before commencing
operation. Safety Goggles are available at many local retail stores.
Vacuuming Dry Materials
1. The filter must always be in correct
position to avoid leaks and possible
damage to vac.
2. When using your vac to pick up very
fine dust, it will be necessary for you to
empty the drum and clean the filter at
more frequent intervals to maintain
peak vac performance.
NOTE: A dry filter is necessary to pick up
dry material. If you use your vac to pick up
dust when the filter is wet, the filter will
clog quickly and be very difficult to clean.
3.If your filter is wet but you need to use the
vac to pick up dry material, you can quickly
dry the filter by running the vac without
hose attached for about 10 minutes. The
clean air rushing through the vac will help
dry the filter.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this
appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). This plug will fit in
a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the
plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet.
Do not change the plug in any way.
After you plug the power cord into a 120V
outlet, turn the Wet/Dry Vac on by pushing the switch from “OFF” to “ON”.
Familiarize yourself with the accessories
included with the vac. Each accessory
may be used in various ways for vacuuming and blowing debris. Here is a list of the
accessories and their uses.
Utility Nozzle - General purpose nozzle
for most vacuuming applications.
Wet Nozzle - Used for wet pickup on
smooth surfaces to pick up liquid and dry
the surface in one stroke.
Car Nozzle - Dry pickup nozzle for car
interiors and most upholstery cleaning.

Operation (continued)
Vacuuming Liquids
Moving the Vac
1.When picking up small amounts of liquid
the filter may be left in place.
2.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.
3.After using the vac to pick up liquids, the
filter must be dried to avoid possible
mildew and damage to the filter.
4.When the liquid in the drum reaches a
predetermined level, the float mechanism will rise automatically to cut off airflow. When this happens, turn off the
vac, unplug the power cord, and empty
the drum. You will know that the float
has risen because vac airflow ceases
and the motor noise will become higher
in pitch, due to increased motor speed.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the
vac do not run motor with float in raised
position.
1. Should it become necessary to pick the
vac up to move it, DO NOT pick the vac
up by the lid handles unless dust drum
is empty. To avoid dropping the vac due
to latches releasing or possible part
breakage, pick the vac up by the lip of
the dust drum.
Blowing Feature
Your vac features “Full Blowing”. It can
blow sawdust and other debris. Follow the
steps below to use your vac as a blower.
WARNING: Always wear safety goggles complying with ANSI Z87.1 (or
in Canada CSA Z94-3-99) before
using as a blower.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
injury to bystanders, keep them
clear of blowing debris.
1. Locate blowing port of your vac.
2. Insert soft end of your hose into blowing port.
3. (Optional) Attach extension wand to
swivel end of hose.
4. Turn vac on and you are ready to use
your vac as a blower.
5. (Optional) for enhanced blowing
performance purchase accessory blower
nozzle VT2506.
Emptying the Drum
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
injury from accidental starting,
unplug power cord before emptying
the drum.
l. The vac comes equipped with a drain
for easy emptying of liquids. Simply
unscrew the drain cap and lift the opposite side slightly to empty the drum.
2. Another option is to remove the lid. Pull
the flexible latches outward on each
side of the lid to release from the drum.
3. While holding the latches out, lift the top
assembly up and away from the drum.
4. Lay top assembly upside down on a
clean area while emptying drum or
changing filter.
5. Dump the drum contents into the proper
waste disposal container.

Maintenance
Filter
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
injury from accidental starting,
unplug power cord before changing
or cleaning filter.
NOTE: This filter is made of high quality
paper designed to stop very small particles of dust. The filter can be used for wet
or dry pick up. Handle the filter carefully
when removing to clean or installing it.
Creases in the filter pleats may occur from
installation but creases will not affect the
performance of the filter.
Cleaning
Your filter should be cleaned often to
maintain peak vac performance.
Be sure to dry the filter before storing or
picking up dry debris.
IMPORTANT: After cleaning, check the
filter for tears or small holes. Do not use a
filter with holes or tears in it. Even a small
hole can cause a lot of dust to come out of
your vac. Replace it immediately.
Removal
To remove the filter for cleaning or
replacement, unscrew the filter nut from
the filter cage and lift off filter.
WARNING: Do not remove the filter
cage. It is there to help prevent your
fingers from getting into the blower
wheel.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the
blower wheel and motor, always reinstall the
filter before using the vac for dry material
pickup.
Dry Filter
1. Some removal of dry debris can be
accomplished without removing the filter from the vac. Slap your hand on top
of the lid while the vac is turned off.
2. For best cleaning results due to accumulated dust, clean the filter in an open
area. Cleaning SHOULD be done outdoors and not in the living quarters.
3. After filter removal from vac, remove the
dry debris by gently tapping the filter
against the inside wall of your dust
drum. The debris will loosen and fall.
4. For thorough cleaning of dry filter with fine
dust (no debris), run water through it as
described under “Wet Filter”.
Wet Filter
After filter is removed, run water through
the filter from a hose or spigot. Take care
that water pressure from the hose is not
strong enough to damage filter.
Installation
Refer to page 5, “Filter Assembly”.
Allow the filter to dry before reinstalling
and storing the vac.
Wet/Dry Vac
To keep your Wet/Dry Vac looking its best,
clean the outside with a cloth dampened
with warm water and mild soap.
To clean the drum:
1. Dump debris out.
2. Wash drum thoroughly.
3. Wipe out with dry cloth.
WARNING: To assure product
SAFETY and RELIABILITY, repairs
and adjustment should be performed by Authorized Service Centers, always using RIDGID
replacement parts.
NOTE: If your casters are noisy, you may
put a drop of oil on the roller shaft to make
them quieter.
