4.5 Gallon ProPack® Portable Wet/Dry Vac is rated out of 5 by 141.
Rated 4 out of 5 by NTebo from NIce, smaller/ more compact shop vac! The number one thing I like about this vac is that it is square like a box and not round it makes it easier to fit tightly with my other equipment in my work van. The vac has two compartments that hold the hose and attachments. this is very helpful, but the compartment clips SUCK, I would not be surprised if they are broken in the near future. Also the hose diameter is smaller than the bigger vacs which is not a good thing in my opinion because it cant handle wood chips or caulck strips that are over 3 inches. But with that being said this is the best small sized shop vac that I have ever used, Im just used to using the big ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eszoom from Perfect for storing attachments and storing the unit I was impressed with the vacuum's storage where all attachments are contained in compartments and the two hose extensions clip to the side of the unit. I wanted a vac with no wheels or ridged hose hanging off or wrapped around the unit. This vac stores very easily. I needed it for a job on steps and this unit sat on the step and provided the needed vacuuming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Filflarn from Great Vacuum! This "tool box" type vacuum works great, is easy to carry and all adapters, wire, and hose are self contained in the small bins on either side of it. It also fits so much better in my work truck compared to the standard drum type wet dry vacs. I definitely would recommend it to anyone looking for a wet dry vac. Thanks Rigid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by veryunhappy from CLUNKY WOULD HAVE BEEN OK IF IT PERFORMED! Fine dust clogs filter very quickly. Latches for attachment storage function poorly. Round brush attachment almost useless. Brush hairs suck into hole when vacuum is on restricting size of opening. I thought shape and not having wheels would be an asset. I can not say enough how much this tool? disappoints me. I voted poor for durability by fault of questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ochocojack from This product is easy to move to different locations I have several old wet/dry vacs that I use to take to different locations within my shop & garage. I am always looking for an end attachment or a caster wheel which has just fallen off. Replacing the wheel or the detachable base the vac sits on is a real pain. The Ridgid ProPack suitcase design should solve the irritating issues my traveling wet vacs give me. All attachments fit inside the case and there are no casters to roll it around. I just pick it by the handle when I want to move it. When you get to the vacuuming location all attachments are within the case That is better than searching for attachments or picking them up after they have fallen off the poorly design attachment holders on the outside of many wet/dry vacs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tripccc89 from Great portable vacuum I own both the large canister vacuum and the 4.5 gallon pro pack Square vacuum, they both have a ton of power, the 4.5 gallon Propac is extremely portable all attachments fit beautifully on board, The five horse power motor on this vacuum is unbelievable plenty of power to pick up anything! I am a carpenter and I mostly use this vacuum to pick up sawdust, lots and lots of sawdust from fine particles to large chips,, I wish rigid would make caster wheels for this I would buy them too...

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.
