Rated 5 out of 5 by from I detail cars and this is perfect for that job with the long hose and cleaning kit. Plus with no wheels I don’t have to worry about it rolling. Great product just could use a way to store the tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Shop Vac. Excellent suction and portability. Using this shop vacuum is so easy and it's performance is excellent. Only draw back is that it was shipped with only one (1) dust bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second one. I like it so much If you use the bags this vac will last for a long time. I looked at the ones Lowe's offered but did not see any that compared. My last one I used on a semi daily basis for work and it never lost power. This vacuum sucks I used to joke which was a good thing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible li'l wet-dry vac - model WD4052 After my first purchase of this wet-dry vac for a gift, I purchased a second one for myself. This compact wet-dry vac performs really well especially for the price. This model WD4052 also came with the car detailing kit with several accessories including a second hose - one of which is the orange, 10-ft premium high quality hose. The suction is fantastic and I intend to use this vac in my garage for car detailing and general use. This unit is portable and very easy to use. If you are looking for a wet-dry vac that is very inexpensive with high HP and powerful suction, this one is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. Great product, great suction, very durable, but I wish it had wheels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good power I wasn't sure this vac would perform this good. I was shocked at the power...it was an easy clean-up of the mess in my car. I brought the attachment kit also. Great little vac, easy to move around and lots of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and Powerful I bought this for my shop but I found a special buy at Home Depot and I got the car detailing kit with it. I've used it on my truck and wife's car and it worked very well. In my shop I have vacuumed and used it as a blower. It works great! Now, I just need to find adapters to mate this to my router, miter saw, etc. Found it at a great price and I love how light it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product requires more review under more rigorous use. I have purchased two of these, one that has stopped working....and the other that remains to be rated because I have not had it long enough to review it. Surely, I will return the newer vac....it it does not meet my review within the next 30 days. In the interim, I'd like a new one sent by your company to replace the one that has failed to work, while under a life time guarantee.

How to install dust collection bag?

WD4070 came with dust collection bag (VF3501), but inlet tube on this vac model is different from pic on bag installation instructions. VF3501 does not appear to be compatible with Model WD4070.
