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

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.

What happened to the hoses?
My Rigid 2 in 1 Blower/Vac has been awesome over the years. The only thing wrong is the hose kinks at the inlet to the head of the vac and reduces the efficiency of the vacuum. I went to buy a replacement and cannot find a 2 1/2” diameter hose anywhere, they are all smaller and adapt “up” (????) to 2 1/2”. I need to find a replacement hose or get a different brand, I will not move backwards
