Customer Questions & Answers

I dont see any wheels on it. Are there wheels?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, but it has inserts in the bottom that except small casters that I bought at Home Depot when I bought the vacuum and that makes it the perfect vac for me. I can roll it around the shop or garage or easily carry it when working on a job site.

can get wheels for tIhis model WD4050?

Asked by: Anonymous
I bought this not too long ago from HD and it has insets on the bottom where you can insert small casters so it can roll. The ones with a post, not the ones that have a plate you attach with screws.

Does Home Depot sell the filters (VF3500) or do I need to order online with Ridgid?

I would like to go into a store and buy the filters instead of paying for shipping to order from online distributor.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, I buy them at my local Home Depot.

4 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Portable Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 81.

I thought this vacuum would be great for moving around the shop to pick up small quantities of dirt but the reality is that it needs to be picked up to be moved. No wheels make this task a little more difficult than expected. The hose is so stiff that it really interferes with the operation of the vac. It's hard to turn and twist to the correct angle when you're in a hurry. When you throw in the non-existent Ridgid warranty, I'm not entirely satisfied with this purchase. Never trust Ridgid to honor their warranty. I might feel different if it were half the price but it isn't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Available Parts Home Depot does not show the right parts listing for this model.This model 4050 is not shown on the parts manual download. The parts and filter are not all for the mod.4050. The picture of the filter is correct but VF3500 is not the correct filter. The ID is wrong and the retainer and nut do not fit correctly and the plastic threads can be ruined because the filter is 1/4" too long. The correct filter has a separate mounting plate.The VF3500 has a vulcanized base plate and the filter assembly is too long for the nut to retain the filter correctly. To use this filter the cage that fits the VF3500 filter is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using it as a Bee vac I brought this for a rather unusual application. As a beekeeper, I sometimes get the chance to remove swarms of bees from buildings, trees etc. This vacuum cleaner fits the equipment needed to do this perfectly and is light enough to carry up a ladder and has plenty of suction to extract the honey bees.
