4 Gallon Detachable Wet/Dry Vac


4 Gallon Detachable Wet/Dry Vac


The new RIDGID 4-gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum is a multi-functional tool that combines portable power and a handheld blower. This compact powerhouse packs a heavy-duty 6 peak horsepower rated motor to tackle even the messiest jobs. The power head of the vacuum detaches and quickly converts into a handheld blower with a locking wand that outperforms most dedicated leaf blowers. The quick-release cord wrap lets you spend less time unwrapping the 20 ft. cord and more time on the job. The caddy conveniently keeps your accessories and the hose close at hand. It is 2 incredible tools in one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use We have a 16 gallon wet/dry vac which is extremely difficult to move around but great when needed. But this Rigid 4gal. vac is light weight and excellent for everyday use around the workshop and basement. It is powerful and has all the attachments that would be needed. And the blower comes in handy around the yard. Great little tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great concept with only small complaints This vacuum is small and light, but impressively powerful. The blower function is a bonus and a great idea. I bought this because I needed a shop vac that is small, yet versatile, and can be attached to power tools to reduce the mess when working in my garage. The blower is not intended for heavy yard work, but has been invaluable for blowing off tools after use, and blowing away leaves in and near my garage in the fall. The lifetime warranty was also a big selling point for me. My suggestions for improvement would be an inexpensive attachment with which to store accessories instead of the useless cup in the back which only effectively stores a couple of small parts. The wheels are a nice touch, but so cheap that I doubt that they’ll be viable after only moderate use. Otherwise I love this shopvac/blower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great features & is powerful for it's size Just purchased this item a week ago and can't BELIEVE how great this little 4 gallon wet/vac is!!!!....... Used it for leaf blowing--Excellent!!!....I Hate to rake leaves!!!!......(but just enough power to blow them into my corner for recycling). Cleaned my garage floor & hard to reach areas for bugs on ceiling and my lawn mower before putting it away for the winter. Am hoping it lasts with the plastic tubing and doesn't crack; overall so far, an excellent purchase!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good compact vacuum I think the vacuum is great.. I just find the hoses on most vacs to be a little un-rulely. They're just a bit to stiff.. and the filter's are a little pricey for what they are.. But an over-all good vacuum. I have to larger Rigid and I wouldn't trade em in..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This size ridged vac works fantastic for me as a pellet stove cleaner with the fine bag filter. The size and body design also works really well while Was almost ready to go out of the box. Came with a filter bag , however I’m glad I bought extras because the bag that came with it didn’t have the card board to hold it in the vac. I live 60 miles away from where I bought this and wouldn’t of been happy had I not bought extra bags.C

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-built and easy to use The motor is plenty powerful enough to meet our needs so far. The attachments latch together, as well as to the shop vac, making it easy to move the unit around the room by pulling on the attachments. The detachable blower is a terrific feature, and adds considerably to the value of this shop vac. When I use my miter saw outside, it is very easy to detach the blower and fully clean the saw dust of the saw. This shop vac also has worked very well as a car vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Impressed I have owned a larger Ridgid vac for years and it has worked flawlessly. However, I needed a smaller vac for ease of use in smaller places. This vac is amazing. Plenty of suction power for any job and the blower feature is icing on the cake. Now I don't have to start up the gas blower to clean off my lanai area. Comes with all the attachments that you need and everything has a place for easy storage even the large hoses. Taking apart the vac for cleaning is a breeze. The only concern I have is there is no strain relief where the electrical cord comes out of the handle as this in time may cause a kink or break in the wires. Hopefully not. I highly recommend this vac.
