Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Great Portable Wet/Dry Vac
It's a great vac with lots of suction. It's small enough to carry around from job to job.
The height of this vac is listed wrong. It is listed as 14.5" but is actually more like 16" without the extension tube stored which would make it even taller. Rigid Web site lists it as 16.75"
You can use any of the 2.5 inch hoses and attachments. The hose that is sent has a built in reducer on the end.
The hose that comes with it, is a bit stiff as some of the other reviews have said.
There is a place to store all of the attachments, power cord, and even the hose. The pictures never show the hose stored. Maybe because it's not the greatest storage of the hose. According to the instructions, you wrap the hose in a loop twice and connect the two ends together then wrap in the same location as the electric cord. The problem is that the hose is made so cheap that it will collapse and kink if it's rolled that tight. So I do almost the same thing but just don't connect the two ends so that the loop is not as tight as to start kinking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unknown Great purchase!
Purchased this vacuum at Home Depot for two reasons, quality and performance. I needed a good car vacuum to replace my old one which was a small Shop vac, which worked great for years. The new Shop vac comparable model (from my old one) is made like junk, very cheap plasticy looking and opted to upgrade to this Home Depot vacuum instead. Yes, a little more money but well worth it. I have used it quite of few times already and it definitely performs well, long electrical cord, longer hose but unfortunately I still needed to purchase a large crevice tool attachment that it does not come with, I'm sure by Home Depot's design, still was worth it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ray Powerful and perfect size
We just got rid of our 16 gal. 6.5hp shop vac and replaced it with this 4 gal. 5hp Ridgid model WD4070. The old 16 gal. was too big and cumbersome and despite having more hp had less suction than this new Ridgid. Yes it is loud but aren't all shop vacs loud. This thing rolls nice, has locations for the cord and tools, is compact and has all the power we'll ever need for our general household cleanups. It's more money but well worth it to us.

I needed a car vacuum and I found that after attaching another hose to make the length bigger, the suction was pretty low. It did clean the car fine but I wish it had more suction. I returned it and will soon buy a bigger and more powerful version.

I have had a Craftsman just like this in HP and size for 5+ years. Went to Sears yesterday and could not find any filters for mine. Needed shop-vac for workshop and birdroom/house. Had decided to get another vac. Researched on line for HD and Sears vacs. Bought this vac from HD and just unpacked it. What a GREAT Surprise to find that this vac also will blow! Not Sears! Now is can blow off my carport/drive and really love this. Highly recommend it.

Looking for a strong (high horsepower) and light in weight WetVac. This filled the bill quite nicely! Recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MJackson good for the money
Because this is a smaller model, I noticed the hose can clog when vacuuming larger messes, but if you're just vacuuming dust and small debris, it sucks well. Smaller, but sturdy. I like it. I haven't tried it as a wet vac yet.
