Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact and powerful Great size. Rolls easy on casters and has excellent attachments. I use it for overall cleaning in my house. Have a bigger Rigid shop vac for the basement, garage, and for leaf blowing. February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact unit, Big features... What a wonderful surprise. The suction of this unit packs a punch, constant suction and it goes after the smallest of dust in hard to reach areas. Supplied with all the attachments for any job site that tuck away into their own compartments. One of the biggest surprises is the weight of this vacuum and the square tool box design make it not only easy to handle but also stack with other like designs. Thank you RIDGID, nice job... February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice compact unit very powerful for a small shop vacuum & all attachments plus hose fit inside vacuum. February 14, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Storage for cord and hose not large enough. Acordeain hose sucks in to it's self when unnder load. Some 300lb helper will use it as a stool and crush This vacuum was a gift and if I had bought it I would have taken it back. February 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It small and fast Great product very helpful and the compact tool box look makes it easy to take everywhere great suction February 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great vacuum, flimsy compartment latches Boxy design makes it easy for this handyman to load it with tool boxes in my van. It is convenient to carry into houses and clean up after a job. It has a nice long power cord The clips on both ends to get access to the cord and tools are flimsy and do not operate easily. I am not sure how long they will last, but the rest of the vacuum seems to be good quality. I have a Ridgid account where I registered my other Ridgid tools, but had to create a new account to register the vacuum because it is in the plumbing department. Why can't Ridgid, as one company, have one log on for everything? January 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Like the shape & size. Easy to transport. Ridgid seems to be a good product. Really like how compact it is & everything stores with it. January 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Design by a great Company We purchased this to replace our older vac, love that everything fits in the box. No dragging hoses or cords. My one and only gripe is that the lids on the ends do not have a way to stay open. Just makes it a little harder trying to get tools and cords out one handed. January 15, 2015

I already have two of the large vacuums, but am looking for a smaller portable with the Scroll Noise Reduction built in. It isn't always clear from the website which ones have it, so I would like to know for sure.

Thank you

Please be informed that the WD4522 (Pro Pack vac) has no Scroll Noise Reduction. None of our Portable 4 gallon vacs have the Scroll Noise Reduction Feature.

Answer: 
These two answers to my original question make no sense. The description of this vacuum above clearly states under "Features" that this model has Scroll Noise Reduction. That is item #7. So, it would appear that this model does have the Scroll Noise Reduction feature.

While waiting for an answer, I went ahead and ordered, and received, this vacuum. Based on the amount of noise it makes, or rather doesn't make, I would say that it does indeed have the Scroll Noise Reduction.

It is relatively quiet for such a powerful vacuum. As I intend to use it in public places, that is important to me.

I am rather disappointed in the inaccuracy of the previous answers, and am glad I didn't wait to make a purchasing decision based on their information.

I am wondering if I can use this vacuum to clean my pellet stove when the ashes are totally cold. Do I need an additional filter or do they have a specific filter for cleaning ashes?

Yes you can use the WD4550 on your cold pellet stove provided that the filter is properly installed. You might also want to use a dust bag for this vac, it is compatible with the VF3501

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or you may send your email to info@ridgidvacs.com.

Answer: 
Based on the filter type (VF5000 Fine Dust Filter) yes you could clean a "cold" pellet stove. However, if there are any embers you run the risk melting the container and/or causing fire.

I would purchase a vacuum specifically designed for wood stove ashes with a metal container just to be safe.

Answer: 
My unit is new so mine has not cracked. That is a shame the replacement hose does not package into the side since to me that is one of the major advantageous of this unit.
