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: joy
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 1135.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny, Deadly, and Underestimated Everyone laughed at me. All my buddies just couldn't get finished laughing their butts off when they saw my choice. Guess what? The specs don't lie. Suction kills everything I've put it up against. Yes, even SOME, not all, of the bigger Rigids. Quality is superb. Runs loud and hot. Get used to it. A bargain for the price, absolute steal. I highly recommend the wide car brush accessory right off the bat, as well as the hose size adapter kit. You'll just go back for it if you don't get it. Great vac. Pleasure to use due to how much power it has, unlike 98% of competition. A++

I saw a lot of comments about attachments and hose sizing. I've always used the better hoses which come with both ends that thread on easily to the end of the hose. I also got the car kit which fits this vacuum as well as my other larger vacs. With these two other hose kits this vac will accept all attachments offered.

I use it mainly to blow dirt, bugs and spider webs from my Lanai No-see-um screens, and blow up air mattresses when the grandkids visit, as well as suck up any water that may permeate the Lanai Hurricane Windows. The Blowing power is amazing for such a small shop vac. The only issue is that the blower actually blows the hose off of the connector when I bend the hose too much. There is a latch on the hoses for the machine and connectors, but it would be better if the latch at the machine was both on top and side of the output to rectify this issue. I looked long and hard for a shop vac with this kind of blowing power, so I will keep it and come up with a way to keep the hose on the machine

Picked up this 4-gal Ridgid shop vac over the holidays, and have to say I'm pretty impressed with it. Makes cleaning out your vehicle a piece of cake, has great suction power, and is light enough for any homeowner to move from one location to another. Best of all? This little vac is excellent when used as a "wet vac"-- I'd had some areas of standing water in my basement after several heavy rains, and this vac cleaned them each up in a matter of seconds! All I had to do was unplug it, roll it over to a basement drain, detach the hose, and dump. Instead of an hour of squeegee work, the cleanup was done in ten minutes. Wish I'd gotten one of these years ago.

It's a very powerful vacuum, but the "4-gal" capacity is misleading because the large filter takes up a lot of dry vac capacity; and when using as a wet vac the water starts leaking as soon as it reaches the bottom level of the intake/exhaust holes. Actual capacity is more like 2 gal. tops. It's also a little awkward to empty. Blower option is a joke: the hose won't lock into the exhaust hole and blows right out as soon as you turn it on. Pros: strong suction, lightweight, easy to move. Cons: limited capacity, especially as a wet vac due to location of intake/exhaust holes; blower option useless; awkward to empty.

The noise is relatively low when the outlet port is pointed away from the operator. The pleated filters clog more often than non-pleated filters of entry-level shop vacs, but they can be repeatedly cleaned with water and re-used. I would be happy with it overall, if the hose stayed put in blower mode. In blower mode, the hose keeps detaching after a short time, rendering the tool pretty useless as a blower, which is about 50% of its functionality. Either the lip on the outlet port is too short, or the clip on the hose is not strong enough, or both. I'm not sure how Ridgid can sell this without doing any testing of the blower. Maybe it's a manufacturing defect. I have not contacted Ridgid yet about this. Only giving 2 stars mainly for this defect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works good when it works Purchased one years back, worked for 3 or 4 years, then went out. I liked it so much I bought another. The second one worked for a little over a year, and like the last one it just stopped working as well. I learned between both purchases (turns out it's a common thing) that motors that use brushes can get dust between them, being I was able to repair a table saw and skill saw motor by just cleaning caked dust from the brushes, I figured the same would apply with a vac. However the design of this vacuum did not allow me to remove the motor to get to the brushes. I tried looking up intructions and videos with no luck. Very frustrating. All the screws are accessible yet there is a washer or bushing on the shaft that would not let me remove it and I could not free up this washer without causing damage. So yet again I threw away yet another rigid vaccuum. After reading these things should last for 7-8 years or more I just chalk it up to a couple bad apples. I never even once used them for a wet vac application!! Just bad luck???
