Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vacuum! I love the size and shape. I can finally have a shop vac always in my truck that is powerful and not so bulky. I use this vac with a vacuum switch as dust collection for my miter saw and table saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great size lots of power This is my second purchase of this model. The first gave out after years of heavy use in construction. I like the on board extension tube carrier. Only issue is that the carrier needs a more robust attachment, it comes off too easily. I will glue it in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient carry case for the unit and attachments I bought this for my sister to use to clean up her attic after a roofing job. The long power cord and the extensions for the vacuum hose made for great reach. It picked up nails, tar paper and chunks of wood. We ended up using it to clean up in the basement after a section of the ceiling collapsed and it could handle chunks of plaster that fell. It has the hose adjustment so that you can actually reduce the vacuum suction for going over loose items like plastic covers with a simple twist. I did pick up some water as well and in the limited use for that did a good job. The thing to watch is when the suction seems to go down, check the filter as it will get bogged down. When it stopped picking up nails, we knew it was time for a cleaning. The filter did a good job of catching the dust as we did not notice any dust exhausted from the vacuum.

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.

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
