Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Vac Impressed with this Vac. Powerful and compact being square is a great design, Stacks with toolboxes or crates. Small and easy to carry. Have only had it a couple weeks so unknown durability, but it is well built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this shop vac! It's very powerful for the size, very light weight and portable. Easily stack with other tool boxes and such. My only complaints are that the compartment lids and latches feel really cheap and that the hose end does not clip to the attachments. Otherwise it's great, saves me so much time on the job. I hold it by the handle in one hand and with the wands in my other hand I can walk through any area quickly cleaning up dust, dirt and any random debris.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Suction good. Portability good. Debris chamber small. Flex hose short. Tube diameter narrow. All pieces of the vac system in one unit makes for good portability. The suction on the unit is good. The rectangular shape of the unit makes for easy storage. The flex tubing is short and rigid. Wider tubing width would ease attachment of hose directly to machines such as table saw, miter saw table, etc. The debris collect box is minimal in size. The size and portability of the unit is very practical for use in my small workshop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Project Manager The unit is very well built and seemed very good for the first 6 months of use. Around month 7, my unit quit working out of the blue but thank goodness for the Ridgid lifetime warranty. I got a replacement vacuum after speaking to tech support. One suggestion I would like to make is that the ridgid website says to fill the warranty form out online. The online form does not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product packs a punch! This is a very powerful vacuum! Easy to handle and store when not in use. I like the fact all the attachments have secured storage and can not be accidentally miss placed during transport from one job to the next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shop vac ever for a contractor. I’ve purchased many rigid tools and love all of them. This product is by far the best design for a shop vac. Definitely fits my contracting business and storage is so much easier. The power is great, and I just can’t get over it he awesome design. I show everyone.Ron Thanks for such a great product and honestly at a reasonable price.

Is it better than WD4522

Is 4500RV an improvement over WD4522? They look exactly the same except for the color, 4500RV is a bit lighter and I don't see any other differences.
Asked by: Bender
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID. They are the same. Both of them are current models with difference in color and distribution channels only. The model #4500RVis available exclusively through STAFDA/Industrial distributors – Specialty Tools and Fasteners Distributors Association. While the model #WD4522 is available at Home Depot stores. Regards, RIDGID
