Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerfull, compact and complete, all your vacume tools in one easy to tote package. Well designed and and easy to transport. Love the onboard tools and the 20 foot powercord. I would however like a dry pickup bag system for dealing with fine material or a gasket between the drum and motor assembly to keep fine material from escaping the drum. August 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great vacuum cleaner great vacuum, lots of power. bracket on back to hold tools doesn't attach securely. The power switch is easy to shut off if carrying while using. Other than these minors problem it's perfect. June 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight. On board storage Another awesome tool by ridged, i reviewd several portable vacs and this one is very worth the investment! May 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The product is very convenient to use I've used the product a couple of times and it has worked well doing what I needed ti do. May 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Compact size - massive power - love it! This Rigid works VERY well. Quite stunning suction for a vacuum that is quite compact in size. Only negative is the storage compartments. I don't like the clips much and small area to put the cord and hose. All by design of course to keep it compact. My only complaint - but I have no complaints of you know what I mean. Great vac! May 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great compact shop vac This Vac has plenty of power and suction. it does as good a job as my large 18 gallon shop vac. The tool and cord storage makes this a must has for small projects and jobs. It is easy to carry around and store. April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The first one I purchased was over a decade ago. I used my old vacuum so much I didn't realize how short the end of the hose was until I started using the new vacuum. I use this vac. on 90% of my jobs and not just to vacuum with, It's a great step stool or a bench. The thing has great power and can pick up just about anything you need it to. I hope this one will last as long as my first one, witch is still running. April 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lot of power in a space saving design Summary says it all. Very powerful and durable. I like the boxed design. It allows you to pack it away a lot easier. April 24, 2016

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?

Thank you for your interest in RIDGID!

Yes you can use the WD4550 on your cold pellet stove provided that the filter is properly installed. You might also want to use a dust bag for this vac, it is compatible with the VF3501

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to [email protected]

Answer: 
Based on the filter type (VF5000 Fine Dust Filter) yes you could clean a "cold" pellet stove. However, if there are any embers you run the risk melting the container and/or causing fire.

I would purchase a vacuum specifically designed for wood stove ashes with a metal container just to be safe.

Answer: 
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 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

Answer: 
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.

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.
