Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power for being such a small vac I've used it in my crawlspace that doesn't have room to crawl and it fit great and was easy to pull around with the hose and wheels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is perfect for average usage. We bought this for miscellaneous use as car vac and general cleaning in the garage. So far, everything works very well. The fact that it is portable makes it extra easy for us to manage. We have not used it for wet vacuuming but assume that aspect will function well also. The only thing that was disappointing is that we had to go buy the accessories for it. Seems like the attachments should have been included.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well but… …the hose is too short & stiff to be a well functioning portable vacuum. It's a bummer to have to disconnect the hose after each use just to store it. The hose sticks so far out of the front of the vacuum when it's connected it takes up a lot of room unless the hose is disconnected. The extension wands are so long it makes it hard to maneuver the hose at any angle other than keeping the hose completely straight. I would recommend the vacuum however I definitely think the hose could use some upgrades.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Machine works great I gave this a 3 because the hose is horrible. It kinks constantly at the top where the pipe attaches. The machine seems to have great suction and picks up debris well. I don't recommend buying the bristled floor attachment because it only works with a forward motion. I own a cleaning business and hoped this machine would be a benefit and so far it is, only after I had to purchase the non-kinking hose. I would recommend buying this, just know in advance you'll need to spend another $50.00 for a better hose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This vac has plenty of power and great features I bought this vac to clean vehicle interiors.The hose could be about 2 ft longer to reach the center of my truck.The performance of this vac is great.It picks up everything.I wanted the wd4522 vac but it did not have casters.I own other rigid products and am pleased with them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent so far. Saw this product used by several car detailers on the internet and the price was right, so I bought it. I have only used it once for detailing my car and it did a great job. I'll have to see how it does on saw dust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size and shape I really like the size and shape of this unit because it is easier to store. The only thing I find a little odd about it is how hot the motor gets on the top of this, probably due to the way it is designed differently, like a canister. I have checked that the filter is put in place properly. I think it’s just because of the power of these vacuums perhaps the heat from the motor is to be expected. The attachments that come with this model are useful and I especially like that it can be used as a blower because it will come in handy during the fall with leaves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridgid 4 gallon 5 hp This shop vac is very powerful and has great suction. Only issue I had was when using as a blower the hose came off twice. There are aftermarket hoses you can buy that are better than the stock one. The way it connects to the vac could be better.but it's a great vac and backed by that great warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best vacuums on the market, great product!!! I do HVAC for a living, always using a shop vac for water leaks or cleaning inside of condensers. This vac pro forms flawlessly every time. Rugged construction, easy to use , and very powerful. What more can you ask for in a shop vac. Great product keep up the good work!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all my needs I am very pleased with this vac. It is small enough and light enough for me to use in small spaces, and carry around with no problem. It has good suction and very compact for storage. One of the handiest features is the hole in the handle that I can put the attachment/hose into and get it out of the way temporarily, instead of dropping it on the ground and tripping over it. I highly recommend this product for home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 Gallon Portable Wet/Dry Vac 4 Gallon Portable Wet/Dry Vac is powerful for its size. It rolls around,nicely, but I'd like the hose to be a little longer, since I use it to clean places near the ceiling, otherwise, the attachments work well. The customer service was great, the company lives up to its guarantee.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WD40700 quit working after using 3 times We bought this shop vac because we liked the size and power. It worked great for vacuuming out our vehicles until it quit. We also bought it because of the lifetime warranty, which is a good selling feature. When it broke we found out there is no place to take the unit for repairs, we had to mail it to Missouri! The postage was $35.55! This seems unreasonable to expect the customer to pay the shipping on an product that is less than 1 year old! A new unit cost $79.99 at Home Depot. This is poor customer service, terrible quality and too much effort for a customer to go through to claim on a lifetime warranty. As instructed we have mailed the power head back to Missouri and are keeping our hopes high it will be repaired or replaced and we will have no further issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vac! Moved up from 2.5hp shopvac vac/blower with 1 1/4 hose after 10 yrs. Rigid has more power, doesn't clog up, harder to kink hose, quieter, doesn't tip over, follows me around without a fight, really long built in cord, cord and hose rap around vac tight for transport, pipes and some attachments store in bin at back and on top, light weight. A little pricey for size but this is out-weighed by power, portability, relative quietness and ease of use. Used for dry pickup only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light and extremely portable and high on power. This dry/vac is excellent for use on multiple simultaneous projects. The length of the hose makes the wheels a must and the attachments are adequate. I would prefer a brush head to the wide area attachment. I purchased a universal adapter for the larger Ridgid dry/vac iI own but it is designed for smaller attachments only. I had to modify it so I could use my larger tool assortment. In short, big power and big results in a compact dry/vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little vacuum for portability or space saving I already own a 16 gal Ridgid Vac with cart attachment, but I wanted something more portable for my shop and when I work on maintenance projects away from the workshop. The 16 gal unit is currently connected as part of a dust collection set in my workshop, so I bought 2 of the 4 gallon units, and I am pretty pleased, overall. The smaller sets come with a fine particle filter, which is better than the filter than came with my bigger vac, and part of the reason I bought them. I just built an audio control booth and needed something that would do a good job vacuuming up drywall dust and wood shavings, and these guys handle it without an issue. The hose is smaller than the bigger vacs, but it works well. It might cause issues if trying to hook this up to a workshop, but as a portable vac it's perfect. It's also pretty light and convenient. My bigger vac has a muffler filter on the exhaust which makes it a bit quieter, and these 4 gallon vacs do not have that, and they seem to run louder. They do have great suction, however, so I got over it quickly. My only real complain right now is that one of the units won't turn on. I am not sure what happened, but the motor just won't start when I plug it in and flip the switch. Other than that, I am very pleased with all my Ridgid vacuum purchases so far, and recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very well made wet-dry vac As a contractor, I wanted it to be easily carried from job to job. It is. It needed it to be semi-quiet in use in the customer's home. It is. Storage of 20' cord is good--out of the way. Hose storage average. Gave 4 stars only because it rolls around in the bed of my truck--all over the place. However, that factor does make it easy to pull in the shop and houses. Excellent suction--As good as my 6.5 hp Ridgid shop vac. I own many, many Ridgid tools; you can't go wrong. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Weight and easy to get it where you need it. The 4 Gallon 4.5 HP dry and wet Vac is easy to carry and has a long power cord making it easy to use. The hose is long enough but, a little stiff. It has very good suction and is reasonably quiet.The only limitation is the 4 Gal capacity which makes the dry vac bag a little small.

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.

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.

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.
