Customer Questions & Answers

How do I use the "wet" feature on my Rigid 4.5HP 12 gal. wet/dry vac.?

I purchased it many yrs. ago and have mostly used to clean out my chimney. Would like to clean some area rugs.
Asked by: Anonymous
You need to remove the filter before using your vac in wet mode. Everything else should be the same.

4 gal. 5.0-Peak HP Portable Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 973.

It's light enough to carry from place to place. I used it to suck up a bunch of sawdust generated by a router and it worked great. Previously, I owned a larger shop vac (looked like an R2 unit) and whenever I moved it around it would fall over. This design is superior. Only downside is that it takes a lot of hand strength to operate the catches that allow you to open it up to dump the debris and then re-close. Removing the filter and re-attaching also requires much hand strength. I especially like the way all the hoses and attachments can be attached to the unit and then carried together to the place where you want to use it.

It is by far one of the best tools I have bought. Powerful suction, great portability, and very durable. it has a quality cord that isn't too stiff and just enough adapters to make all jobs easy. I did have one clip break off on the rigid extensions, but since they are friction fit it wasn't a big deal. storing the parts in the back pocket isn't great. they often fall out. I leave the flex hose hooked up to both rigid pieces and then put the rigid piece in the hole at the back of the handle so it sort of stands up. That is the easiest way to store. Pros: Workhorse, can take a lot of abuse and still suck up messes. Portable, reliable, on castors. Cons: If using wet the amount of water is limited so it means frequent emptying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed early, effectively no warranty The motor on this vacuum failed after less than a year of light use, and the Rigid "lifetime warranty" is valid only if the product fails "the first or second time the product is used" (verbatim from their warranty page). I find this to be irritating enough that I'll buy another brand next time.

Worked well until it didn't..... after very light use, the motor started to smell as if it were burning. When I called the company, they informed me I had to mail it to them in St. Louis to determine the problem. Seriously? I can't imagine how much it would cost to mail this beast. And they don't guarantee I'll get a replacement. Maybe I just got a lemon, but I won't be buying from Ridgid again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value I purchased this unit for the dirty work in my small shop. I was going to go with a larger unit but after seeing the demo models I went with the 4070. It is easy to move around and stow. The 1-7/8" hose is large enough for my purposes and easier to handle than larger hose. It is light enough to carry but heavy enough to drag on the floor and remain stable. I purchased bags for it as well so it will be a snap to convert to wet applications. I also have a high end dust extractor that is super convenient (and pricey) so I didn't give this vac an excellent performance rating. However, I am extremely pleased with this vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little unit. Does the trick! I downsized to this unit from a Rigid 12 gallon shop vac. It was big and bulky and I just never needed to vacuum up 12 gallons of waste/water. This 4 gallon model has a bigger motor and better suction. Not to mention a longer cord and the hose seems more flexible and easier to maneuver for my needs. Most vacuuming out the cars, cobwebs in the garage, the occasional spill, etc. I also got rid of my Bissell carpet cleaner as I figured it was easier to spot treat and then vacuum up the water than try and clean the entire rug. All accessories store on board, so that too is a nice feature.

On the positive side, I appreciate the compact size and power it provides. It's form factor is great because it is something you can easily carry with one hand and makes it more likely to be taken out and used. On the negative side, I wish they offered this vacuum with the 2 1/2"diameter hose (this one has a 1 7/8" diameter hose). A 2 1/2" diameter hose is much better for picking up construction debris without frequently clogging on the small jobsites I use it for. However, to purchase a a RIDGID vac with the larger diameter hose, you have to move up to a 12 gallon bucket size, which isn't necessary at all on jobsites that are cleaned up at the end of each day (or multiple times per day).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size This vac is fairly light weight but sturdy. I can carry it up and down stairs easily and find that there's an attachment for any job I throw at it. The components snap on and off easily too. I bought the dust bags because I went through a regular filter in a matter of weeks with demolition dust. You also do NOT want to get the filter even the slightest bit wet! This shortened the life of the filter a lot, I'm sure. We bought this to replace our 15 year-old B &D after reading the reviews and are very happy we decided to try Rigid for the first time.
