Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Vacuum because it all fits in one box easy to carry... Shop Vacs are noisy and this is no exception. But the feature of having attachments inside the box and the ease you can carry it around are outstanding! Good thinking "outside the box". Suction is decent and the cord is long enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful portable vac I’m pleased with the features, convenience of use, storage of included attachments and suction power of this model. I also like it has a lifetime warranty, I’m pleased with the durability of my larger RIIGID shop vac and my reason for purchasing this smaller unit for portability and way of use. It comes with a dust bag that replaces the wet/dry filter if needed. Very easy to clean. Unlatch the two side latched , pull the upper half out and dump the container. There is no drain plug on this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice, portable and convenient vacuum. Complete setup is about a minute and you are ready to go. The only thing that could make this better I figure would be wheels. That isn’t a major sticking point though. It is light enough not to need them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for portability I bought this for portability. I tied up my other shop vac for the cnc, festool for the other tools, and dust Extractor for the bigger tools. I needed something portable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong suction but hard to move around The vacuum is heavy and bulky to move around. The storage container lids seem flimsy, but the rest of the vaccum seems to be tough. The extensions holder will break off in the next couple of months, not the best quality but not a big loss. The best feature is the long cord to avoid having to use an extension. I purchased this for the HP so it was worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The first vacume I have seen which is set up to keep track of all of the parts This is nice vac, which houses all of the parts inside. Our company hires a few installation contractors. We can send this vac with them and have had it returned with all of the parts on hand. This is rare for any equipment we use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but. The vacuum is nice and small yet very powerful. It is handy to have all of the needed pieces tucked away in the unit itself. However using the vacuum with a bag is slightly frustrating because the bag can only get about 25%-30% full before it kills the vacuums suction. The container and the placement of the air filter prevent the bag from getting any sucked up debris into the side thus reducing the bags effectiveness. Would be nice to see a redesign in the future to help with this. Also for job sites I prefer a car tool or a fatter crevice tool. To increase suction but not be to small. Would be nice to have one on this unit instead of the long skinny crevice tool. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I love it. I own other rigid vacs and i know they last. I love how powerful it is while being very compact. I also love how all the attachments hide away almost completely and are very secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great portable Vac Love the Innovation and features put into this vacuum. The convenient onboard area for tools it’s a great idea. Cord storage is Awesome, keeps the chord from being tangled and dragged around. Suction and power are good. The door for the exhaust should have vent hole so you don’t have to leave it open while using it. They should have made the top cover taller and the extension tubes shorter, making it possible to store the extension tubes inside the top cover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small but powerful I’ve had a Ridgid vac for over 10 years and have been very happy with it. It’s easy to store and move around as I use it. It has the power to vacuum your car or heavy dust/dirt from building projects and I love it’s portability when cleaning up after a live Christmas tree. Say that one quit on me on day and I ran out and bought another to replace it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This vacuum comes with all the attachments that I need for my job. This vacuum is well designed for the working person in mind. All the attachments that it comes with will all be put to use. I am very happy I purchased this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good vacuum machine saving room in my van Ridgid reputation is on this machine, silent, powerful, and the most important to me, saving space in my van. I would like to have the cord retractile, which is very important in this busy life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good The vacuum is good the only reason I give 4 out the 5 is because i don't like the house to hard and big ( 2 1/2 in ) the primary use is to vacuum the cars and inside the house to vacuum behind the furniture, but overall is good and quiet is not too noise like shop vacuum

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suction Don't always have a need for a wet vac, but when I do this thing does it well. Compact enough to put in my tool cabinet (try that with any other 5HP.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I have used a standard cylindrical drum shop vac for years and it's a pain to transport. This shop vac is incredible. Not only is it easy to transport, but the thing has great power. The ability to use it as a blower makes it that much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Purchased the 4.5 Gallon ProPack® Portable Wet/Dry Vac for a particular project. Tool performed above my expectations, was fairly and competitvely priced. Home Deport carried a full line of the accessories. Would recommend to anyone looking of a small lightweight, portable and very powerful wet/dry shop vacuum. I also recommend purchasing a 1 7/8" to 1 1'4" reducer and the micro-vacuum attachment kit for small detail work. I purchased an extra length of hose and the reducer was included, but it can also be purchased w/o the hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of power in a small package This is an excellent contractor vac for picking up small stuff around the jobsite. I also use one on the jobsite for my saws. Good power for dust collection. Doesn't take up much room on the job or in the trailer. Overall very pleased with these Pro Pack Vacs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what it looks like Powerful suction. Cleaning a car, it worked very well sucking up all the nasty, to include $12.86 in change in the ashtray. Having a powered rotating brush would have been a great option, but months of matted dog hair was removed with work, by scrubbing the plastic hose end back and forth. I like the washable container and hoses, since I will use it in my honey business which becomes very, very sticky. Electric specs were hard to find in the manual, so you have to dig for them. It is a bit bulky, but being rated at 4.5 gallons, that means 32+ lbs. of water- not unrealistic to lift in many tight spots.
Date published: 2019-03-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from bad design Very hard to use this for much if anything,the accordian hose is kinda short so when the attachments are connected you have to drag the vac as you clean up, tried it to vac R and that was a lot of work, thought this was going to be great but I was wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact but can handle a load As A contractor I bought it in 2006 because it was easy to handle and it is still working great.
