Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the design! So far, so good--I've only had this for a few weeks, but I love the compact storage and the power of this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Vacuum and easy to store Just purchased and have only used several times, but man does this vacuum suck! Great power for the size of the vacuum. Only suggestion I would offer is if Rigid could make the vacuum hose either a bit longer or a bit more flexable. The hose sort of fights you a bit when trying to vacuum up work bench tops and such with just an attachment on it and not the two long tubes. Other than that, a great vacuum and I really like the ability to store it and stack it on a shelf to get it up and off the floor in my small work shop! Nice job Rigid, keep up the good work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and compact, lightweight too! This vacuum exceeded my expectations by far. With the various attachments included and optional dust bag makes cleaning up easy and emptying even easier. When you don't want to dust out the interior of the vacuum while cleaning up drywall or other micro dusts. I'm really impressed with the high level of suction and compact design. It's far less noisy than expected as well. I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Portibility with Shop Vac Power. The unit is the size of a tool box. Everything is stored on or in the unit. The power cord is long. I'm using the optional vac bags since I'm using it with a portable table saw and mini wood lathe. Love the portability and shop vac power. I also got the optional car kit to use this on my truck and in our RV. Has plenty of suction power. I not used It for wet applications yet. I also like the warranty it comes with. You can't do better than lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine... The first ProPack I had did an excellent. I used it for cleaning up around the shop and keeping the cars neat and tidy. It does a great job in the shop, picking up the dirt, debris, and sawdust like a champ. More of the same when it came to cleaning up the trucks. I've had several of the smaller wet/dry vacs and they don't have anywhere near the power of the ProPack, the thing is a beast. I've never used it to suck up any water so I can't comment on that aspect of it's operation. The only problem I had with it was when it quit, it just died, and was never able to figure out why. However,I called customer service and they were able to get thing sorted out. I never did find out what was wrong with the original unit but a new ProPack was on my doorstep a few days later. Amazing customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power in a small package This small wet/dry vacuumed has plent of power and easily stores the cord, hoses and implements. I have not found a HEPA FILTER BUT THAT MAY NOT BE CRITICAL.
Date published: 2016-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as Advertised The 4.5 Gallon ProPack® Portable Wet/Dry Vac has proven to be a solid purchase. It is portable and comes with a useful tool selection. In my shop it is used primarily for sawdust clean-up that is needed even with dust-control machinery in place. To date, wet operations have not been tried. This review does not assess durability since the vac has been in service for only a short time.

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?

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: 
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: 
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

Answers

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.
