Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 gal portable wet/dry vac This is the 2nd Ridgid 4 gallon vac I have bought. It works great on the job site for small debrie. I would recommend buying the muffler to help keep the sound down if you are using this item on a residential job site. Buy with confidence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful vacuum in a portable size Positives: 1. Great suction - used it to cleanup construction dust. 2. Wheels and long cord made it convenient to work a large area 3. included 2x24" rigid pipe sections and a floor vacuum head so I could vacuum the floor without bending over. 4. Excellent dust filter - no drywall dust came out the exhaust. Improvements suggestions: 1. include a 90 degree pipe to redirect exhaust up and away from the floor. As I was cleaning one section the unit would swivel on its wheels and often the exhaust port would be directed at a still-dusty area... resulting in a new dust cloud. 2. Quieter would be better 3. Better and wider floor vacuum head - the one supplied would not pick up dust unless it was at a perfect angle to the floor and would not pick up water easily.

Did I get a dud?

I have had this unit for a very short time with light use......partly because I cant get to suck anything. I purchased to suck up water from when my washer leaked and it picked up nothing.....also when trying to suck up dry materials. it wouldn't even pick up a penny off the floor...Am I doing something wrong? When I remove the hose the suction is very strong...but when the hose is attached the suction is very poor...
Asked by: JenniferCordova
Sounds like you've got something blocking the hose. If you attach the hose and the motor changes to a higher pitched sound you've got a blocked hose.

Seeing as there is no foam filter with this unit, will it damage the vacuum to remove the filter for vacuuming up liquid?

Asked by: Timj
Absolutely! There must be a foam filter on the unit when vacuuming up liquids to prevent debris from getting in to the impeller.

replacement / different filters

it seems like all the filters you sell are for the larger vacs, are there any filters available to purchase for this vacuum if we need to replace the stock one or want a different filter? thanks

How often do I need to change the filter?

I have been cleaning out the ducs in my house and the one I got with the machine today already looks very dirty.
Asked by: bama97202
not sure, I use the bags for dry pick up only and the filter stays clean. You can feel the bag to see if getting full. For filter, suggest once a year if you use it to clean air ducts only...doesn't sound like you use it a lot. filters can last a long time and look like they are very dirty. You can take the filter off and tap it inside a garbage bag and run fingers over the filter to get some dirt, dust cobwebs off.

How do you clean the power head

and after removing the filler I noticed that a good amount of dust collects around the filler . I believe this happens when a bag is not used. In which I plan to do. I'm new to the product this will be my first time using it, being so Ied like to clean it thoroughly, for I'll be using inside my house.
Asked by: Donarp
Unless you are using it as a wet vac make sure to use a clean filter that is properly installed, (it's simple), and if need be wipe down the motor housing with a damp, not wet, cloth with the unit unplugged.
