Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice small job site vacuum Bought this vacuum because I was tired of dragging around my 16 gal. vacuum to jobs where I just need a small vacuum. Portable and just the right size with lots of suction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Portable Shop Vac After many years, my old 5 gal. shop vac was on its last leg. After reading many reviews, I selected this wet/dry vac and have been very pleased. Easy to use, lightweight and very powerful. Blows my old shop vac away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Top of the line for a small, powerful shop vac. Have had a RIDGID 14 gal for years with no problems, so RIDGID durability is great. Ease of use could not be better. It is light weight so carry it anywhere with ease. Performance is the best, both suction and blow. What more could you want?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful Got tired of dragging my full size vac from the garage and around the house. This 4 gallon unit is a very good size to store in the basement and much easier to carry to where ever you need it. Also good for my basement based drill press. Suction is powerful. Unfortunate this model does not come with wheels (similar available with wheels) but small enough and light enough that this is not a major issue. It is not as compact as some of the other Rigid designs given that it is rounded. And nothing can be stacked on top of it when stored. For example, square toolbox based design is more compact and allows for better storage and stacking. But these are minor squabbles unless you are looking for smallest size for capacity to maximize portability. Would recommend.

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.
