Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Vaccum Easy to store in vehicle because of the shape, attachments all enclosed, great performance January 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Portable and Powerful The vac has lots of power. It stacks well in the back of vehicle with all my other tool boxes. All parts stay inside so you all-wise know where they are. It is easy to carry into the job in one hand while still able to carry other tools in other hand and under you arms. The one thing I don't like is the hose is to short, said 7' but i haven't got it to stretch that far yet if it ever will. In all it works great to carry in to clean up after a quick repair on something, or as a dust collecting unit so you don't make a mess when cutting sanding etc. January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by product is solid but the ability to match accessories is terrible. I bought a diffusor/noise reducer that I had to return. Product is great, the ability to use accessories is hands down terrible. I bought a noise reducer that I has to return as there aren't any adaptors that fit. I bought an extra hose that I had to rig in order to get it to work. The portability of this vacuum in by far outstanding, but I will not me recommending it to them as the accessory issue is terrible. January 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shop vac I have owned going to buy one for each crew there that good! Best shop vac I have owned, great power to be as small as it is, easy to carry with all attachments contained in unit, no losing attachments when they fall off. Only thing I would recomend is buying the additional hose, one with it is only 6' or so! But wornderfull Vac January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am very happy with the purchase. Easy to move around and stores compactly. I have just used it twice but the pick up is great. This was the recommendation of the store and I am very pleased with it. January 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works good for my needs. I do not have a lot of experience using this product yet but will comment just the same. Bought this product based on what other reviewers have said and it suits my needs. Based on the suction it has and the way it is designed was especially suited for storage in my small home. Have used it to sweep out a few autos at this point and it has been ideal for that. Again I do not have the experience most other reviewers have but works good for me. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little portable Vac. Happy I purchased it. Great little vac really strong nice portable vac. actually used one of these vacs on the job and was impressed with it you can purchase a muffler for it and makes it quieter does a great job on cleanup now I do not have to break out the big shop vac. December 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by needs to go back to the drawing board Used this vac one time.the hose is very elastic so as to collapse and store in the vac,thus when attached to the vac and turned on,what length hose they give you, wants to retract itself leaving the user with a very short hose. You end up dragging this vac all around your heels trying to get r done. I know to be a compact vac when in the stored state, the hose must some how collapse to fit in it.. Good idea,but bad design,not user friendly. What a disappointment,it is so compact for transporting. To bad like a lot of other tools and merchandise,design people never have handle on their products like us end users out here.In one minutes use, I could see the draw backs. Great idea December 25, 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

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

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.
