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.

does this shop vac come with batteries and charger

Asked by: nana
Hello nana, This vac is corded thus it does not come with batteries and charger. We have a 3-gallon cordless vacuum WD0319 that uses 18-volt battery, but the battery and charger are not included in the package. If you have further questions, please call us at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

4.5 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Pro Pack Wet Dry Vac is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 970.
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.

I went looking for a new vac specifically for auto detailing......not as a professional, but I'm sort of nut about keeping my car nice. I'd never seen this product before, but thought it was a great design, so I bought on a whim. Glad I did. I like it so much better than the tradition style vacs. Easier to cary and store, plus it has compartments for all the accessories. And it works great. I did not get the auto detail accessory kit, the three inc. tips work fine, especially the soft brush.....great for getting dust and gunk out of those crevices. I will probably get a hose extension though. I can live with the stock hose, as I have a compact car, but would be easier if longer. Those with larger vehicles would need. I have yet to try for household purposes, but I'm sure it will be fine. I say hats off to Rigid for rethinking design of the ubiquitous shop vac.

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. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great portable Vac Love the Innovation and features put into this vacuum. The convenient onboard area for tools it’s a great idea. Cord storage is Awesome, keeps the chord from being tangled and dragged around. Suction and power are good. The door for the exhaust should have vent hole so you don’t have to leave it open while using it. They should have made the top cover taller and the extension tubes shorter, making it possible to store the extension tubes inside the top cover.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vac Owned for a few months now of heavy use and has handled everything from drywall dust, sawdust, large woodchips, chunks of thinset and float. Like any vacuum picking up sanded plaster bogs down the filter so I bought a couple bags that I only use for when im sanding plaster and it works great. Very glad it doesn't have wheels. The problem with pulling the round ones around was they wouldn't necessarily pull straight toward you and they would ding up walls and baseboard. Also people are saying its loud? very quiet relative to vacs I have heard with similar HP. I would not recommend standing on it, but its nice to have to set tools on top while your working Only con is the two plastic pieces that hold the tube extensions on the back of the vac get loose occasionally and have to be snapped back on. I may just glue them on and the only problem is solved.
