Is the battery and charger included

Well, this is just an extension wand that fits on the wand that came with the vacuum. Maybe this question belongs to a different product. Not a powered item. The vacuum itself is an AC plug in item.

Attachments are not universal with Rigid
I have a model WD-4070 and need a carpet attachment with rolling wheels but the one you sell is not compatible with my model. How can this be? Your accessories need to be universal.

Response from RIDGID Wet/Dry Vac Customer SupportMay 5, 2021
Hello RIDGID Customer, Thanks for writing a review. We have the Carpet and Hard Floor Nozzle Accessory (VT2530). However, you will need to have an adapter to make it work with your WD4070 and that is included on the 3-piece adapter set (VT1755). You may get this through Home Depot stores or online. If you need guidane on how to connect these, you may contact our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.
