Questions & Answers

Does this VAC consist of a blower as well?

I saw one on a jobsite, and it was able to vac and blow.
Asked by: MikeMart
Yes, when you open one of the sides that house the attachments, you will see that you can attach the hose to the blower side. It does a good job being small.

4.5 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Pro Pack Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 940.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not you, it's me...ok, it's you. I have purchase vacuums/tools from Rigid in the past and generally recommend their product. I got a wild itch to buy this vacuum because it looked like it would pack nicely into the work van. While it packs nicely, the features fall short when using the vacuum. Not having wheels means you must hold the vacuum or leave it stationary on the ground. Both are problematic. While holding it, i constantly turn the vacuum off because the on/off switch is over sized and easily brushed against while walking about. While the vacuum is stationary, the hose is so rigid you will understand how the product got it's name. There are two other tidbits that will drive you insane. The extension wand keepers pull off when you try to remove the extensions and the attachment compartments are capable of ripping your fingernails clean off. I'm sure they will lose tension after a few uses. In summary, I like most of Rigids products and find them to be a good value. I would stick to one of their other vacuums.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lack of debris storage Since the display vacs at HD are not accessable to inspect to make an intelligent decision prior to purchase, I decided on this 4.5 gal vac due to it's low center of gravity tool box design. My 6 gal vac kept falling over due to it's small fooprint & high c.g. which was annoying and thats why this purchase. After inspecting this 4.5 gal vac I returned it. Pros: good suction. Storage compartment. Stable . Cons: Lack of capacity since the storage compartment takes up about 25% space, reducing needed space to hold vacuumed material, compounded by additional space used up the corrugated filter which in my opinion takes up another 25% space. The dust bag wraps around the interior which only had about 1/2" space between the case and the filter & storage compartment, so using a dust bag is a wast.

I bought this about 2 years ago because my 14 gallon Ridgid was too large to easily carry downstairs from the 3rd floor where I store it. Plus the hose had to be carried separately. Having the hose and attachments inside this unit is a huge improvement and having the wands clip to the outside works well. The only things keeping me from giving it a 5 are: 1) As many have commented, it's loud. Much louder than my 14 gallon. 2) The hose is a little too short. But not by much. Any longer and it wouldn't fit inside and fitting it inside is much more important for me. It took a while to figure out how to stuff it back in but I finally found it's fairly easy if you fold it in half then fold the whole thing in half again before inserting it in the storage bin with the hose ends pointing up. 3) The hose has popped out of the fitting where you put the attachments on a couple of times. As others have mentioned, the glue doesn't hold. It does, however, screw in a good 8 or so turns so once you screw it back together it works fine. One note, it's a left-hand thread due to how hoses are made. So lefty-tighty. :)

I bought this because I had to cut open a client’s wall and didn’t have a way to clean up afterwards. This vacuum comes in handy. The length of the power cord was surprising and the fact that everything packs up in the unit makes it easy to store and carry around to different jobs. Worth every penny. I’ve recommended it to all the guys I work with.

The compartments are a joke and not convenient and awkward to access when the unit is on the floor due to how the compartment door opens. If it is on a work bench access is better but still not as useful and it looks. I returned is a few days later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Wanted I bought this vac to do drywall cleanup, and it does great! It picks up drywall dust well and after an hour of cleanup, it still has enough suction to keep going. I also own the sister vacuum to this one, the WD-4070, which is a similar shop vac on wheels. I like both, and they both serve their purpose. There are times when wheels come in handy for pulling the vacuum around on the floor. But, sometimes wheels can be a problem. For instance, if you want to sit the vacuum on a countertop, wheels would be a problem. The tool box form of this vac is also nice for transporting, as it won't roll around in your trunk, or cargo area. Lastly, I do like the self contained nature of this vac. Assuming that you put everything back where it belongs, you have all the attachments in one easy to carry unit. And I would characterize this vacuum as fairly lightweight, even with all the attachments loaded. I can see this vacuum doing everything I need it for as an active DIY'er.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what it looks like Powerful suction. Cleaning a car, it worked very well sucking up all the nasty, to include $12.86 in change in the ashtray. Having a powered rotating brush would have been a great option, but months of matted dog hair was removed with work, by scrubbing the plastic hose end back and forth. I like the washable container and hoses, since I will use it in my honey business which becomes very, very sticky. Electric specs were hard to find in the manual, so you have to dig for them. It is a bit bulky, but being rated at 4.5 gallons, that means 32+ lbs. of water- not unrealistic to lift in many tight spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and compact I got the WD4522 Ridgid to replace an enormous "jet-engine loud" craftsman vac that was given to me. The Ridgid, with the 5 hp motor is still very capable of handling everything I need in my shop and garage for wood, dust, metal shavings and occasional water pickup. It is not overly noisy and easy to maintain the changing of filters and debris. I would like to have seen more attention paid to the design of the latches for the storage bins on each end - the current design is clumsy to open, but stays shut when it needs to. It came with the fine dust filter (blue) but the HD stores in our town did not stock the regular filters (white), nor the water pickup filters for the smaller units (less than 5 gal), so I ordered these off the HD website. I did not like dragging the WD4522 around on its base, especially on brushed concrete like our driveway while vacuuming my truck. I found that the small furniture dolly harbor freight sells for around $10 works perfectly. I fastened two small brackets on each end with some rubber padding glued on and the WD4522 vacuum fits on the dolly and rolls with ease (see pictures). Overall I think that the power and the convenience of the compactness of the WD4522 makes a great tool.
