Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diversity210 This vacuum is a performer
The vacuum is a performer. Small, powerful, and durable. I have owned this vacuum for over a year now and it is by far my favorite vacuum to date. I have put this vacuum threw a number of tasks from cleaning my car, tiling floors, sawdust, and more and it hasn't failed me yet. My only gripe about this vacuum is the short, cheap, hose that comes with. I opted to purchase ridgid's orange pro hose which I recommend to anyone looking to buy this vacuum as its a much better hose. Way more durable, longer, and flexes a little better. Some say the pro hose should come with the vacuum, but I don't believe that is true. As that would drive the price up on the vacuum taking it out of its intended price range.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by oshomar Shop Vac replaces the vacuum cleaner
I used to use a regular vacuum cleaner in my home and for my carpets, consequently burning two vacuum cleaner motors as well, then I purchased the Shop Vac. Now I am at Shop Vac-ing instead of vacuuming. I should have done this years ago. I actually enjoy cleaning my floors, carpets, and car now. This is the best investment ever!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Werely User friendly attachments
This unit replaces my old unit that just died. All the attachments are easily stored in their compact compartment. The unit is much quieter then my old one. Impressed with it's suction power. So far, so good

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 shadowdog 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by laffen 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gator 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...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by highstk 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.
