Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 393 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so good. Flexible hose extremely stiff. Hard to work with. The hose should be recalled and replaced. Otherwise quite powerful. Unless supplied with better hose in future I would not recommend it. February 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 100% I recently purchased a 4 gallon RIGID shop vacuum WD4070 and thoroughly enjoy using it. It is so versatile and user friendly that it's now an absolute must around the house and garage. I was so impressed by it that I also purchased the Auto Detailing Kit #VT2534. When I went to use the Auto Detailing Kit the Claw Nozzle did not stay attached to the end of hose. I contacted Ezra at Rigid Customer Care via the Internet and was responded to almost immediately. The problem was rectified quickly and with respect. It’s easy to tout customer service but a challenge to make it happen and be a positive experience. I heartily recommend RIGID’s products not only for their excellence in design and performance but also the stellar performance of their Customer Care associates.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This vacuum sucks It"s suction is incredible, been using it in my garage home and lawn for over 2 years. My wife has a cleaning business and she uses it to vacuum clients homes and she will never go back to an upright vacuum, she can reach in every direction with it. I have used this after mulching leaves, I once mulched so many that they still covered the lawn, I used this vacuum to suck up the clippings and then took them over and dumped them in the compost pile. The lawn looked great afterward. This machine is a real work-horse and I recommend it to anyone that wants a great reliable machine. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well engineered! Low center of gravity/profile This vac is used for any and all tough jobs in the shop AND around the house. Extensions tend to loosen and need re-tightening even though a lock mechanism is used. December 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Most powerful versatile vac! Can't say enough good things. This vac is excellent and has great power for its size. I've used this from a continuous dust collection hook up to heavy duty jobs and it has never let me down. I think it's best quality is the size and just how maneuverable it is. Only flaw is minor and inherent to the hose. I would like to sees one reinforcement at the end as it begins to bend and a kink forms just proximal to the attachment site. I've had several and they all begin to do this but thats any cheap stock video guess... November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bset small wet/dry vac on the market My first model did not have the wheels and I used it for 4 years before I sold it so I could get the current model. That person is still using it to this day. I used this vac for years to clean the fly ash from my pellet stove and remodeled the house from front to rear. We also used it to vacuum the water from the carpet that the carpet cleaning machine left behind. The suction on this is unbelievable. It is critical to keep the filter clean. I remove mine, shake it out, and hose it off and its like new again. You should never allow the vacuum to fill with debris before emptying the unit and cleaning the filter. The motor will burn out under the stress. I would never use another brand of wet/dry vacuum. The size is perfect unless you intend to vacuum huge amounts of water. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is a must have! We purchased this product for use in our semi truck, and boy has it been such an important part of his lifestyle, from sucking up water from a leak in the sleeper to cleaning up the floors and bed from dirt that was tracked in during loading and unloading, this little wet/dry vac can handle it all. I will be telling all of my trucking wives friends and family about this vac, it is a great durable product and I am so happy to have found this for such a steal! I love Rigid's product. And I am sure you will too! November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done great I love, love, love this vacuum. It's not bulky at all, portable, durable and the accessories it comes with are wonderful. I've had this vac for quite some time and one of my neighbors just asked to borrow it a few weeks ago. When he returned it he couldn't say enough about how great it is and thus prompted me to write this review. I love how powerful it is and it's big enough to get most projects/tasks completed efficiently. I would recommend this to anyone in the market for such an item. November 24, 2014
