Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful for it's size! I just bought this and am very happy with it. I mainly got it for cleaning the cars out and cleaning up spills around the house. I have used it a couple of times and was very surprised with how powerful it was. I cleaned up a spill on the carpet and it was so powerful that it lifted the carpet away from the pad and was done in just a couple of minutes. I couldn't ask for more. The only reason I only gave it a 4 for durability is that I have only had it a few days so don't really know but the Ridgid name and warranty makes me confident it will be fine. I highly recommend this if you need a great small wet dry vac!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It comes with everything you need It's a great size for general contracting use. It's just as powerful as the bigger units but with less bulk. I wish I had bought one sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy with all accessories available to buy This 4 gallon Ridgid wet/dry vacuum is the perfect fit for my home and garage. Glad I decided to purchase this model. Look forward for many years of service.Bought extra accessories such as 10 foot flexible hose and brush nossle; extra piece of wand hose was a plus. Will be buying more Ridgid products for sure in the future. Thank you Ridgid...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the durability, very easy to use and the performance is out standing. Works great for small jobs for easy clean up. Fits nicely in my truck. Plenty of power.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good basic shop vacuum - poor hose & attachments Purchased for basic shop clean and dust collection for RIDGID table saw. Found it absolutely ridiculous that the hose included with the unit doesn't fit the dust outlet on the company's products (or does it include an adapter). I had to shell out another twenty-something bucks for a 2-1/2 inch hose in order to use the vacuum with my power tools, The quality of the hoses and attachments couldn't possibly be any worse: too stiff, too short, too flimsy. For another 35-40 bucks you can get a better 1-1/4 inch hose however. Overall, the unit is acceptable at this price point. Just expect to upgrade some components,

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Sounds like you've got something blocking the hose. If you attach the hose and the motor changes to a higher pitched sound you've got a blocked hose.

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.
