4.5 Gallon ProPack® Portable Wet/Dry Vac is rated out of 5 by 117.
Rated 3 out of 5 by JackEarl from compact, self contained, powerful...just what I needed After only using it a few times, it is too hard to give it a proper over all rating. Performance and Durability will take time to access. Ease of use could only be made better if it came with attachable caster wheels. As my 23 year old shop vac was on its last legs, I was looking for a wet/ dry, but something compact to fit in my 2 car/work shop garage. This fit the bill perfectly. With all the attachments, 7 ft flex hose and a 20 ft power cord all enclosed, it stores on a shelf and can be put to use with out hunting for parts and pieces. Able to carry like a tool box and light weight are big pluses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CDamiani from Small and Powerfull We use our Rigid ProPack everyday on retrofit window and door jobs in residential properties. The size and power of the ProPack make it the vac for homes with a lot of furniture to maneuver around. We plan and upgrading our other trucks with ProPack soon. Thanks Rigid for good products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MOONEYHOMESERVICES from This is a great little vacs This is a great little vacuum for certain situations. I'm a handyman and have been through a few vacs of this size. Most have the motor burn out so hoping for the best with this one. So far good suction, I recommend additional filter covers etc to lengthen time to clean and filter time. Attachments and hose are good quality and seem as though they will last. Good for small wet vac needs. Sinks toilets etc. Also good for a small step stool also although I don't believe they recommend it for that use. My only negative comment is the latch system for the storage sections on each end. Something more solid and easier to open. My unit is not easy to open and I find myself jerking them open. The hose is somewhat unique in that it expands and collapses for storage. the only issue is you cant expand it and walk around without the unit following you. You need to block or secure the unit to pull the hose all the way out. For my purpose not a big deal..appears rugged and rigid so I hope it last. stores away in my truck nicely.....Good buy for the money..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaskipper from Great shop vac, external storage not great. Shop vac is great in every way but one. Power is good, weight, portability and tool storage are all excellent. Only problem is the exterior racks for the tubes aren't very good at all. The rack pops off when knocked and generally make the tool a little to bulky when running round a job site. I understand the 'black' version has internal pipe storage which would make this an awful lot better....wish I had the patience to buy that one (local big box doesn't carry it). Nonetheless, a great medium size shop vac to act as a second on the jobsite (second to a bigger Rigid shop vac with more power and bigger filter).

Rated 5 out of 5 by SlyCy from Powerful compact performance Picked this vac up to help keep back patio and my Kamado joe grill free of ash and debris. **NOTE** never vacuum hot or warm ash with this vac. It has performed beyond expectations. Suction power is impressive. Very portable, used more often than my 15 gallon shop vac already. Long power cord, included accessories, and rugged lifetime warranty make this a rock solid investment. I'm officially a Ridgid fan. Nice work!

Can use this vacuum to clean a COLD pallet stove.
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?
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 would like to know which of your wet/dry vacuums have the Scroll Noise Reduction built in.
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
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.

Is it possible to order a replacement Superflex hose?
My Superflex hose has cracked and broken, and the replacement hoses are not flexible enough to fit in the tool storage compartment.
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.
