4 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac

WD4080

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 Best Price/Performance Ratio on the Market for a Wet/Dry Vac Emerson makes great wet/dry vacs ...period. And has done so for decades. For the WD4070, I have a point of comparison. I have the original incarnation of the current WD4070 vac in the first equivalent Craftsman "Clean n Carry" introduced. The WD4070 is extremely powerful for its size. It is easy to carry from location to location, and easy to yank and roll around without tipping over. This makes the WD4070 extremely useful for all kinds of jobs, even for a thorough job of cleaning carpeting in your home. It's a canister vac on steroids and HGH! But I question Emerson's change to the 1-7/8" wands, hose, and attachments. Why? It depends on whether you're a "high volume-low pressure" kind of person, or a "low volume-high pressure" person. I am the latter. The original used the more standard 1-1/4" size hose, wands, and attachments. The best I can figure is Emerson split the difference between 1-1/4" (low volume-high velocity) and 2-1/2" (high volume-very low velocity). This makes the WD4070 have less velocity in lieu of slightly more volume in its sucking power as compared to the original Clean n Carry. The WD4070 also has a round exhaust port that blows exhaust quite forcefully, which the Clean n Carry did not have. The exhaust port on the WD4070 will actually blow loose objects around. To correct this, you must buy the muffler (VT2525), which also disperses the exhaust airflow. Once the muffler is installed, it will cover up the 4th accessory carriage holder, making it useless. Also, by switching to the non-standard 1-7/8", there is currently a dearth of diversity in attachments, both from Emerson, and from aftermarket providers. But overall, the WD4070 is as powerful and easy to use as the original Clean n Carry, even though I converted everything to the smaller 1-1/4" size from end to end. It just so happens I bought a 2nd, backup hose for my original. I can easily recommend the WD4070 to anyone that wants or needs just one wet/dry vac. This is the one to have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product stopped running after 30 minutes of use, but worked very well before it stopped. Appears that a protective thermal fuse may have have shut down the vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is an insanely powerful vacuum. It has a ton of power I just wish ridgid included their pri-hose instead of the standard hose. Also if it came with a diffuser attachment so all exast air doesn't get blown out the side. This unit feels very durable and rugged.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked for about 5 minutes. At 1st use after about 5 minutes the motor made a grinding noise and started smoking. Filter was new and clean and properly installed. It had only picked up a handful of material and hose was not clogged. Took back to Home Depot and exchanged for new unit. I've used the new one about 10 minutes total so can't say if it will last. Hopefully it will because I really like it. It's much more mobile and easier to use than my large shopvac.
