4 Gallon Detachable Wet/Dry Vac


The new RIDGID 4-gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum is a multi-functional tool that combines portable power and a handheld blower. This compact powerhouse packs a heavy-duty 6 peak horsepower rated motor to tackle even the messiest jobs. The power head of the vacuum detaches and quickly converts into a handheld blower with a locking wand that outperforms most dedicated leaf blowers. The quick-release cord wrap lets you spend less time unwrapping the 20 ft. cord and more time on the job. The caddy conveniently keeps your accessories and the hose close at hand. It is 2 incredible tools in one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Powerful 5HP Motor Wish the hose was more flexible maybe softer and definitely longer. To make up the needed extra length with original hose I bought an extra length from Rigid Accessories to extend the total length from 7’ to now 14’. Much better for those limited spaces. Very strong, powerful suction with no letting up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power packed vac! Oh yeah This little guy here packs a punch. The blower is pretty strong and the vac does great. I like the wheels to roll it around also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme blowing power for the size of the vacuum. This vac maybe small but I tell you it packs a punch. Great suction power but the blower is amazing. I bought this for work and it has really impressed me. Ridgid makes great products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The portability and strength of vacuum. I like the portability and strength of vacuum.  I use it in my vehicles, house, and shop.  I'm sad the hose is so inflexible and makes the unit difficult to store. I'm also sad that the extensions are NOT fine enough for small crevices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Happy Why it took me so long to get a wet dry vac...? Dont ask! I am thrilled with this piece... Used the blower already...and cleaned my car like never before. Carpets in my house never looked so good! Haver not even started on my garage... I dont know durability..only had it for a week. I would like the attachments and extensions to Come on and off easier...with my "not 100% " right hand it is a little difficult. Easy to move and carry around( dont need those oversized 12/16 gallon ones. I would imagine the most practical l"wedding gift" or thank you gift to someone that has never had one. I like that I can go into my Home Depot and get all the parts I need. Bought the floor brush and converter attachments. I wouldn't mind seeing this come with all the basic attachments and converters in the box. Abie

Rated 4 out of 5 by from To early tell, but it looks like this unit will be a great addition to my household tools. I bought this wet/dry blower/vac online and picked it up at my local Home Depot store. It was well packaged and fairly easy to assemble. I used it a vacuum right away and it performed as well or better than my larger Craftsman a Shop Vac. Then I popped off the top and used it as a blower to blow the leaves out my garage and entryway. It is easy to pull around and the separate blower is a real plus. The whole unit is compact enough to easily park in my garage without taking up a lot of real estate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great size for car cleaning and I like the detachable blower I had a 16 gal wet/dry vac with a detachable blower that I believe was made by Ridgid for Sears. The power and detachable blower were great but the size and the low profile made it unwieldy and it hurt my back to pick it up and get it through doors. Plus there were no bags that fit it. I used it for cleaning the car annually in the spring, leaf blowing in the fall which it was great for, and vacuuming water from heavy rains in basement. I got rid of it a year ago and wanted a 4 gal Ridgid with a detachable blower with similar power and kept looking online to see if one was made. Went to purchase a 4 gal vac a few weeks ago and found this one with the detachable blower. Love it. Size is great for storage and lugging up and down steps. Can get bags which makes clean-up much easier. Plus it worked great on the car cleaning especially with the accessory car cleaning kit. Would definitely recommend for homeowners who have intermittent small jobs like me and want to do car cleaning. The cord storage hook which turns and the storage compartment for attachments are also great. Disappointed it doesn't have a drain but with the small size it probably won't be an issue. Would have been nice if the amperage was on the box (10 AMPs) and in the manual so you can tell what gauge extension cord you need.
