  • Muffler to fit new WD12450 wet/dry vac ??

    Has the Muffler been re-deigned to fit the larger "Tug-A-Long" sized exhaust port ?? The one for my old Craftsman vac is too small in diameter (approx. 2.65" vs. 2.26").

    I just don't want to make that 2 hour long round trip to HD to find out it does not fit !! Then again, I suppose I could add some 3/16" thick adhesive-backed gasketing to the o.d. of the muffler to make it fit if needed.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    Doug,

    I have VAC's with both styles of exhaust ports, and have purchased the muffler. The muffler itself will fit a normal exhaust port and comes with a tug along adapter.
    So no matter what type exhaust you have it should hook up. And it cuts the noise about in 1/2 I'd say.

      Thanks !!

      I'd agree that it cuts the noise out of the exhaust port in half, but it only reduces the the o/a noise by about 2 Db. It is however a noticeable improvement.

      See my post in the "Tool Idea" section for my recommended "muffler revision" that eliminated the only complaint I had with it. If you have not already done this mod, you will like this muffler a whole lot more !!

        Doug,

        As Woody said, there is an adapter with the muffler to make it fit on your vac. If you cannot find one, give 1-800-4RIDGID a call.

          Hi: I have a plan for a homemade muffler, if you're interested I can email it to you.
