4 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac


4 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac


The new RIDGID 4-gal. Wet/Dry Vacuum is a multi-functional tool that combines portable power and a handheld blower. This compact powerhouse packs a heavy-duty 6 peak horsepower rated motor to tackle even the messiest jobs. The power head of the vacuum detaches and quickly converts into a handheld blower with a locking wand that outperforms most dedicated leaf blowers. The quick-release cord wrap lets you spend less time unwrapping the 20 ft. cord and more time on the job. The caddy conveniently keeps your accessories and the hose close at hand. It is 2 incredible tools in one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just make sure to buy the filter bags I have a big canister (12 gal/5HP Shop-Vac) that I have been dragging between my garage and my basement. I finally decided to buy a vacuum dedicated strictly to the garage. My construction guy recently put in low E windows throughout the house and ran around cleaning behind himself with this smaller 4 gallon/5HP vacuum. How handy! I loved the size and portability. In the garage I mostly clean the cars/truck interiors, and occasionally sawdust and metal filing from drilling/grinding. I purchased the dry pick-up dust bags (Ridgid #VF3501) at the same time because I made a mess of my old canister filter before I discovered this type of bag for that vacuum. I don't usually use my shop vacs for wet pickup, so these were perfect for me. Get full+throw away! Anyway, I'm happy with this vac and the price was right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power and Compact This vacuum has the same power as my old 16 gallon but compact so I can easily get it out of the work trailer and use on jobs. I just wish it had the same size toolheads as the 16 gal. They just are not as wide. Now if your using the filter, note its smaller to fit inside and clogs much faster so your cleaning it out more often to keep the high power suction. I vacuum up lots of saw dust from a table saw or concrete dust from a floor sander, but when the filter is cleaned out it has so much power the tools squeal as your pulling it across the floor. You dont have to clean the filter perfectly just bang it out in the garbage can and periodically vacuum it and it will last a long time. Just remember to remove it when picking up liquids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little compact vacuum!! This vacuum may be small in size but it doesn't lack power and suction. The vacuum is lightweight and very easy to transport. It really gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is light weight and powerfull. Pro's- It quite, powerful and yet light weight. The cord is length is a plus. The only reason I gave it an average rating I have only had it for about 3 weeks. Getting the filter off was a little tricky, after resorting to manual no problem. The wheels on it are another plus.If you don't need the giant wet-vac this is recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My review. I bought this last weekend & registered my purchase. I received this invitation to write a review a couple of days later. It scares the heck out of my grandson (good thing for a laugh.) It also scares one of my two dogs, I can live with that because she's scared of almost any kind of loud motor. She'll get used to it. Other than that the other thing I can comment about it, is my wife thinks it's cute. I have not used it enough to have an opinion either way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the second Rigid Wet/Dry Vac that I own. I had my first one for so many years until it burnt out. It was always so strong up until then. I immediately went to Home Depot to purchase a new one. I bought the portable, 4 gallon wet/dry vac. It is so useful to have around and serves many purposes. I especially like it for vacuuming out the car. It is very dependable.
