Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far good Ridgid vacuum used a few times and so far performs well The decibles coming from the vacuum are tolerable but hearing protection should be used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have purchased this "Little Behemoth " vacuum cleaner a long time ago! Does everything Ridgid says it does and more. I love the compactness portability of this machine. We have 4 vehicles parked in the garage, and after seeing how easy it was to vacuum the first one, I just couldn't help doing the other 3. TRIAL AND ERROR DAYS ARE A THING OF THE PAST! Superior product to all those other. Machines I bought at WM, S, Tar and other places. Thank you Rigid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New and better Have just used it a few times. I purchased this because I had a bigger Wet/Dry vac that I used. It was very hard to get out of my shop when needed, small shop. This new vac is easy to pick up and transport to where ever I need it.
Date published: 2017-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect footprint for working around items. This wet/dry vac has a perfect footprint when working around things. It has a powerful motor and does a great job. Still being new it hasn't sent dust into air like my other brand vac. Like the locking mechs on hose and pipes. Built in the Rigid way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful little guy Had this product before. This little guy is more powerful then some of the bigger ones. And love that it is a wet/dry vac. Small enough to keep in my truck. You'll wanna keep it in the cab or locked down. My first one was stolen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit I have two of these vacuums...one for dedicated wet use and the other one for normal shop debris. They're sturdy and dependable and I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like the vac This is pretty powerful for its size. I like that it’s light and easy for me to carry it up and down stairs. It rolls around nicely as well. My previous wet/dry vac would fall over frequently when moving along vacuuming. This does not have that problem at all. The only thing that would have been nice to include is a brush attachment. I had to get one separately. But, still a great product and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light-weight but powerful with multiple uses After extensive comparative shopping, it was easy to go with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beat small vacuum. Best small vacuum on the market. The only way to make it better is to include more tools and a better hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine Just what I wanted for vacuuming my cars. Just the right size to maneuver around in my garage. The power is unbelievable. I’m surprised how quiet it is. The price point is spot on, worth every penny. Just a fantastic machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from powerful and easy to handle Finally got around to using it to clean up after construction in my attic. I like the way it handles and its maneuverability. I wish there would be a lock for the hose to hook up to the pipes. It pulled apart a couple of times. It picked up some nails. It picked up wood pieces. I use the vacuum bags and they work great though I might go broke buying bags. It does the job I want it to do which is to fit in tight places and it is easy to lift over obstacles. The 15' long cord is great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for us We don't do any hardcore shop work so it is mostly around the house for general use and it is perfect for us. Lightweight and easy to lift and carry and small enough to take in our passenger car. Even though it is small the is plentiful. I am very pleased with our purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from motor burned out the second time I used it I was very disappointed when the motor failed after only two times being used. I must commend Rigid for standing behind their product and sending a replacement at no charge. I hope to have better luck with this vac.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from average use as a blower leaves somewhat to be desired. vacuum is ok for small jobs but that is what i bought it for
Date published: 2017-11-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much MORE power than ShopVacs! Don't even think about any other brand. Just buy Rigid. Been there. Done that. Left the Shop Vacs in the dust. Literally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful Its a powerful vacuum cleaner for its size, has a long electrical cord which is nice and is easy to carry. Looks to be very durable and has a lifetime guarantee which is one of the reasons I bought this vacuum. It needs more attachmen's and the price was a little to high, but overall I'm satisfied and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than expected I purchased this model to replace another brand that was lost in a house move. I am amazed at the suction this model has and the portability for its size. This is only my 2nd Rigid product but it will not be my last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This shop vac was a great buy It was, at first, more than I wanted to spend. I have a white dog with black interior carpet in my car. This vacuum makes short work of the dog hair, which was the reason I bought it.

wd4070

can I buy a foam filter for a Model WD4070

I use this vacuum to clean up liquid spills, I would like some kind of filter as opposed to running without
Asked by: filterrequest
The filter and the way it mounts on to the vacuum is exactly the same as many other brands. So though I have not done so myself. I am pretty sure there is a foam filter out there under another brand that will fit.

Pressure

If a airwatts are 0.117354 * (CFM) * (inches water), then do I calculate correctly that this model no. WD4070 will lift water 12.9 inches high? 167 watts * (1/0.117354) * (1/110 CFM) = 12.9 inches water I feel like that number is way too low - I'm sure your product lifts water more than 1 foot high! I may have the calculation wrong or the pressure may be specified another way. What do the units of "G/h" mean? Thank you for the help.
Asked by: Jacob
You are over complicating the purchase of a vacuum. This is a small vacuum that is very powerful. Its not intended for professional use but will hand any job you have to do around the house. I know it has served me very well.

Can you get wheels for a rigid WD4050

Asked by: beresford5
It comes with wheels. If you mean replacement parts, go to Ridgid's web site.
Answered by: BDH11
Date published: 2017-09-06

Is the storage bin avaliable separately for sale? My unit fell and the wheel stud broke off..

Asked by: mbrad19
I am guessing it is if you go to Ridgid's website. Ridge's customer service has been very good in my experience.
