Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, compact, portable and effective. I bought this vacuum for my mobile detailing purposes along with the Ridgid Car Detailing Kit. The only issue I have is that some of the accessories that came with the vacuum don't fit the much better hose that came with the detail kit. As a result, I'll need to bring both hoses or find an adapter. Overall, great product and accessories!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great in conjunction with my 9" drywall sander I use this vacuum for my drywall sander and it works great. It keeps up with 98%of the dust. The bags do fill up fast because of the size but a fair trade off for the portability. The external exhaust is a bonus on this little vacuum. I added a muffler/difuser which keeps dust from blowing around the room on final cleanup. The accessories that come with it seem a little flimsy but this is a non issue for me as 95% of the time my sander is attached to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple,easy to use. Works great in my home shop. Was looking for a small, easy to handle, quality shop vac with good suction and a good price tag and that's exactly what I got with this 4 gal Rigid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love this vac and all Ridgid shop vacs. I wish they had longer hose lengths available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small with a lot of suck! Love the size as combined with my sawdust seperator on a rig it does not take up a massive amount of space but the best part is that it really creates good vacuum. I really cannot speak on durability yet as a month does not qualify me for feedback on that. I never used it without the separator so I cannot comment on the filter other than so far the little bit of dust that does make it there has not reduced performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Motor seized up after 10 months Bought this model April of last year from Home Depot. Earlier this month, motor seized up. Replaced by Home Depot at no charge. The size of this model is ideal for my garage, so other models won't work. I do find the motor quieter than other brands... We'll see how long this one lasts....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIDGID 4 gallon shop vac. I have had this shop vacuum for about a month and so far it has done an outstanding job for me. I use it to clean the car and even use it inside the house to get to hard to reach places, like behind the washer and dryer or stove. The suction power is excellent. I have no complaint's and really enjoy the feature where you can use it as a blower.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
