Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best vacuum I’ve ever used. Even doubles as a step I love this vacuum. I use it for interior detailing and it has never failed me. It can suck up lots of dirt even from heavy equipment. I love how it’s a box so it doesn’t roll off of the tracks on large equipment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice package but under performs The rectangle case is awesome when it comes to storing the vacuum - huge plus. The hose is too short and clogged up when I was cleaning up weed seeds that had fallen on my driveway. Had to put a broom handle down the hose to clear it out. Love the concept but it fell short on actual performance. I also received two left brackets for holding the wands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact easy to use. Great storage of accessories perfect for around the house jobs! We are renovating some rooms in our house and bought this to use for sanding drywall. Its compact design works great with my drywall sanding attachment. I also bought the fine particle bags to collect the dust and it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Vac Impressed with this Vac. Powerful and compact being square is a great design, Stacks with toolboxes or crates. Small and easy to carry. Have only had it a couple weeks so unknown durability, but it is well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this shop vac! It's very powerful for the size, very light weight and portable. Easily stack with other tool boxes and such. My only complaints are that the compartment lids and latches feel really cheap and that the hose end does not clip to the attachments. Otherwise it's great, saves me so much time on the job. I hold it by the handle in one hand and with the wands in my other hand I can walk through any area quickly cleaning up dust, dirt and any random debris.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suction good. Portability good. Debris chamber small. Flex hose short. Tube diameter narrow. All pieces of the vac system in one unit makes for good portability. The suction on the unit is good. The rectangular shape of the unit makes for easy storage. The flex tubing is short and rigid. Wider tubing width would ease attachment of hose directly to machines such as table saw, miter saw table, etc. The debris collect box is minimal in size. The size and portability of the unit is very practical for use in my small workshop.

Is it better than WD4522

Is 4500RV an improvement over WD4522? They look exactly the same except for the color, 4500RV is a bit lighter and I don't see any other differences.
Asked by: Bender
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID. They are the same. Both of them are current models with difference in color and distribution channels only. The model #4500RVis available exclusively through STAFDA/Industrial distributors – Specialty Tools and Fasteners Distributors Association. While the model #WD4522 is available at Home Depot stores. Regards, RIDGID
