Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hose is a joke. Hose is a joke. Too short. A soon as vac turns on shorts to around 3 ft. No adapter to connect hose to std household vac hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and love the storage compartment for the accessories Purchased it mainly to clean vehicles. Vacuum has a lot of suction and we believe it will serve our purposes well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact design with great power and storability I have had several shop vacs and this one takes the cake. Everything stores nicely in the unit and can be stored easily on a shelf with its rectangular shape. Other units are bulky and cumbersome. If you need a vac for the job site or your home this is the one you need! Thanks for a great design RIDGED, you nailed this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 4.5 Gallon ProPack Vacuum is a great tool! I bought the 4.5 Gallon ProPack Vacuum at Home Depot to replace my old shop vac. The motor in the old tool quit while in use, long before the job was finished. I needed a small form factor vacuum to fit through a narrow access port. The new tool just barely fits; I didn't see any other vacuums that would fit without being disassembled. The new tool is easy to carry and has the accessories stowed inside. I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet the machine is, and very happy with the powerful suction. The power cord is a convenient length so I don't need an extension cord; any excess cord can be stowed in the tool, so the work area is less cluttered and safer. I bought the optional vacuum bags and found they contained the sand and debris I was cleaning up so well I didn't have to clean the vacuum's filter every time I emptied the vacuum's bin. The only drawback with the kit provided is the included hose is very short, which I accept because it is stored inside the case. I bought the optional hose, which added about 50% to the total cost but is well worth it. So far I have about 12 hours of use in only a few sessions. I've had the tool working constantly for two hours at a time with no overheating. I think the 4.5 Gallon ProPack Vacuum is a great tool for those who need a small but powerful, quiet, convenient shop vac. I wish all my tools filled their intended purpose as well.

Can use this vacuum to clean a COLD pallet stove.

I am wondering if I can use this vacuum to clean my pellet stove when the ashes are totally cold. Do I need an additional filter or do they have a specific filter for cleaning ashes?
Asked by: arod
I used this vac to clean our wood stove and it did a steller job. Of coarse the ash was stone cold and the filter had to be cleaned after the job to restore the vacs pickup power. I used a stiff brush to clean the filter and the fine ash that clong to the intierior of the drum.

I would like to know which of your wet/dry vacuums have the Scroll Noise Reduction built in.

I already have two of the large vacuums, but am looking for a smaller portable with the Scroll Noise Reduction built in. It isn't always clear from the website which ones have it, so I would like to know for sure. Thank you
Asked by: brasilbob
These two answers to my original question make no sense. The description of this vacuum above clearly states under "Features" that this model has Scroll Noise Reduction. That is item #7. So, it would appear that this model does have the Scroll Noise Reduction feature. While waiting for an answer, I went ahead and ordered, and received, this vacuum. Based on the amount of noise it makes, or rather doesn't make, I would say that it does indeed have the Scroll Noise Reduction. It is relatively quiet for such a powerful vacuum. As I intend to use it in public places, that is important to me. I am rather disappointed in the inaccuracy of the previous answers, and am glad I didn't wait to make a purchasing decision based on their information.

Is it possible to order a replacement Superflex hose?

My Superflex hose has cracked and broken, and the replacement hoses are not flexible enough to fit in the tool storage compartment.
Asked by: snsmyth
My unit is new so mine has not cracked. That is a shame the replacement hose does not package into the side since to me that is one of the major advantageous of this unit.
