  • 5-peak horsepower motor provides powerful suction for heavy-duty cleanup

  • 15 ft. cord wraps around the power head for storage
  • Built-in drain for easy emptying of liquids
  • Accessory storage space on the caster feet and hose storage on the lid allows quick access to attachments
  • Includes 2 extension wands, utility nozzle, a car nozzle, wet nozzle and VF4000 filter
  • Accepts RIDGID filter bag, VF3502
  • Full lifetime warranty against material defects and workmanship
  • Peak horsepower represents a level at or below the maximum horsepower output of an electric motor tested in a laboratory using a dynamometer
  • Gallons indicated reflect drum volume, not necessarily collection capacity, actual capacity dependent upon type of debris collected, condition of filter and other factors

For dry vacuuming, when do I use a vacuum bag vs a filter? Do you ever use a vacuum & a filter at the same time?

The instruction manual says nothing about using vacuum bags yet there are bags for it.

Can this be used to clean out a small commercial kitchen grease trap?

Asked by: Diane
I would not recommend it. You probably can, but anything thicker than water may present a long term problem if not an immediate problem by clogging the internal parts. If the grease is hot, then I foresee damage to the internal plastic parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The vacuum works as expected but I do not like... The vacuum works as expected but I do not like the design of the filter. For dry applications I do not like how the filter element is attached, to difficult to install and remove. Also for wet applications I don not like that there isn't some kind of open foam filter/strainer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work as well as a shop vac should.... Does not work as well as a shop vac should. For over $80, it should be a stronger vacuum. Not to mention the subpar filter that requires replacement frequently.
