Hello JJN, Thanks for asking. The accessories in the VT2534 kit are made to fit the supplied premium hose. You'll need a 1-7/8” to 1-1/4” adapter from (VT1755) to be able to use the accessories of your VT2534 kit to the original black hose. If you have questions or concerns, you may call 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.

Hello hoover, Thanks for asking. Yes! The premium hose can be connected directly to the hose or can be used as an extension to the original hose. Note that the accessories in the VT2534 kit will only fit the supplied premium hose. Otherwise, you'll need a separate adapter should you want to connect them to your original hose. 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'd be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID

How to change filter ??

Asked by Jerry 1990 November 14, 2020
2
Answers

Hello Jerry, Thanks for asking. To remove the filter, Hold the filter tabs of the Qwik Lock™ filter in each hand.. With one thumb on the Qwik Lock™ stud, which protrudes through the integrated filter plate, lift up on the filter tabs while pushing down on the stud. This action will cause the filter to release from the filter cage. Slide filter off cage. To install it back, Carefully slide the Qwik Lock™ filter over the filter cage and press down on the outside edge of the filter until the rubber gasket on the bottom of the filter seats securely around the base of the filter cage and against the lid. Align the small center hole in the top of the filter over the Qwik Lock™ stud on the filter cage. Press firmly on top of the filter near the stud to allow the filter to snap over the ball on the end of the stud. You may call 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.

Can this unit be used without a dust bag when the original one is used up?

Asked by TxN November 1, 2020
1
Answer

Hello TxN, Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, using the filter bags are optional for our vacs. However, they provide great benefits such as extending the life of the filter and eptying the drum easier. Whether you have the filter bag installed or not, it is important that you always have the cartridge filter especially when picking up dry materials. You may use VF3400 for general debris, VF3500 for Fine Dust and VF3600 HEPA-rated material filter. For any other questions, please call 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.

Perfect size to use with a Dustopper as dedicated dust collection for a miter saw!
I paired this small shop vac with a Dustopper and 5 gallon bucket to provide dedicated dust collection for my miter saw, this combination collects all of the saw dust in the 5 gallon bucket and not in the vacuum. This combined with a cart I built to house the setup and my miter saw allows me quick and easy access to cut wood and not make as big of a mess (miter saws don't collect 100% of the dust but my Festool does collect a majority). I also added a power switch that turns the vacuum on when the saw runs and off 10 seconds after the saw stops drawing power, this makes it so I only have to plug one cord in and not have to manage or run the shop vac continuously. Overall I am very happy with this shop vac.

4 Gallon Portable Wet/Dry Vac because it is small I use it to clean up sawdust and small construction debris One has to wonder why they put the intake and exhaust on the same side The exhaust blows out where one is trying to clean up saw dust it gets blown around by the exhaust.

Response from Customer ServiceNovember 4, 2020
Dear Stew45rm, Thank you for your review and we're sorry to hear about this. The intake port of this particular unit is located on the drum while the exhaust port is at the back side. From the picture you posted, it appears the powerhead is placed backwards onto the drum. The exhaust port should be on the same side as the accessory storage bin. If you have any other concerns, please call 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.

A handy little beast!

A few noteworthy things about this vac: Wet vacuuming: As others have noted, you need to remove the paper filter and put a VF3700 foam filter on. I also highly suggest buying the Rigid diffuser/muffler to put on the exhaust port. Using both will control the mist that will inevitably come out the exhaust port when wet vacuuming. Noise: I don't like noise. If I'm going to do a lot of vacuuming, I wear ear plugs. It's loud but not horrible. Buy the muffler. It helps quiet it down a bit. That muffler/diffuser: also a good thing: Without the diffuser, the strong breeze coming out the exhaust port ends up blowing things around the room! Emptying it: It does take some hand strength to pop the cover latches open. Tip: Lean on both latches with your palms on the cover, then use those fingertips to pop the latches. A slight bit of downward force on the top section makes it far easier to work 'em. See the pictures! If you still can't figure out what I'm trying to explain, perhaps you should consider not using a vacuum. Capacity: If you know you are going to do a lot of wet vacuuming you might want to consider one of the models with a drain plug at the bottom. This unit does not have one, so you must open it every time to dump out the water. That gets rather old after awhile. Speaking of that drain that isn't: Since there is not a drain, you can't buy the nice Rigid VP2000 drain pump. That allows you to continuously wet vacuum without stopping. But again, you can't use it with this model. Though I have pondered the possibility of making an in-field modification to see if I can add a drain port. Then I could use the pump, and that would be great for those special flood occasions! Hose: The big standard hose is like trying to vacuum with an anaconda. It's too rigid and causes the vacuum to shift around as you work. See my comment above about blowing stuff around the room... Consider replacing it with one of their better hoses. But the big hose will suck up large trash quite nicely. If you know you are going to be cleaning up smaller debris, buy the VT2534 car kit with the nicely flexible 1-1/4" hose. Just don't suck up drywall trash or wood shrapnel! It's not good at that, and will get clogged, at which time you stop and shove a broom handle down it while telling AGAIN to whomever didn't listen "DON'T SUCK UP CHUNKS!" Filters: You can get a lot of use out of a paper filter by popping it off and cleaning it when you are emptying the vac. Bowl it down the driveway numerous times, getting lots of skip in your throw. Strum your fingers across all the pleats, like you are petting it violently. Lots of dust will come out and immediately head straight to your face. It's inevitable. I have no idea why. A twister could be blowing from behind me, and the dust would still come for my face. Okay, option three is to use an air hose, outside (if that's not obvious) and blow the dust out from air applied to the inside of the filter. Note that filterologists always say to not blow air against the outside. It will just drive dirt into the filter. Gripe: There is a handy storage compartment molded as part of the lower section of the vacuum. When it's time to empty your beast, you remove the motor top and set it aside. Then you take the bottom and dump it in a trash can OUTSIDE. Then you realize you just dumped the tools in the storage compartment into the trash. Reach in to the resulting cloud of dust and grab the tools, coating your arms in the process. This design flaw makes the handy tool pocket not so handy methinks.

Been wanting one for awhile I use it to detail vehicles, I already have a 16 gallon vac for garage work etc, I also purchased the car kit because the hose that comes with it is garbage. Be aware the attachments that come with it will not work with the new smaller orange hose. This is small and light with plenty of power to vacuum vehicles with ease.

Response from RIDGIDJune 23, 2020
Hello, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned your disappointment. The WD4070 wet/dry vac product we are selling presently comes with the standard white filter, VF3400. This is a temporary component change due to COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) mask support.

We are temporarily replacing the 3-Layer filter (VF3500) component. Due to raw materials that are normally used in our production of the 3-Layer Fine Dust filter component (VF3500) being redirected for PPE mask manufacturing support, we are unable to provide the filter previously included with this product. We are providing customers with a 1-Layer Filter (VF3400) component and a dust collection bag. Please note the dust collection bag was not typically included with this purchase. This filter and bag are shown in the images on this page and indicated under the Product Overview. If you have further questions or concerns, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid

The best compact vac period
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I've got the Wd4070 w hepa filter for work and the Wd 1450 w fine dust filter in the garage. I always use both with bags. I've had the 4070 for 8+ yrs and use daily for hrs at a time to sand Boeing and fiberglass tubs. I use it almost exclusively attached to my random orbital sander with 120grit or 80grit sandpaper. 2 -3 hrs of straight sanding and there will not be any noticeable dust on the vanity. Its perfect for carrying up 3 story walk up apartments and even when full does not get too heavy(i replace the bag every 2 months or so). Working in sometimes occupied suites its great that it is very compact. Especially compared to all the other vacs. I've used Shop Vacs(far too noisy:high pitched sound) and other sub $100 compact vacs(stinger etc) when i first started business 20yrs ago. All garbage within a year. It wasn't until Ridgid released the 4070 that i found a small portable work vac that lasted. As a bonus I'll stack/balance my rubbermaid toughtotes with my hvlp sprayer in one and my vent system in another on top of my vac to push down long hallways. Sucks getting old. Noise is a low timbre especially compared to the high pitch ones I've heard. No complaints from tenants. My only complaint over the years is there is no way to put a power head on any model to use on carpet after drywall sanding but i realize that is not possible. Judging by the NXT reviews, i see no reason to change out my current Ridgid vacs for the new ones. Again, over 8 yrs and both still run like new. No broken castors or hoses(i did upgrade both to the pro hoses) or motors. Easily the best purchases I've bought for work. Outlasted 2 work trucks ,extension cords and 6 sanders of various makes . Even outlasted the toughtotes. I'd definitely buy again if they ever die and would definitely recommend. Not bad for a 100bucks. Just don't buy the cheap models that come on sale at holidays that don't take bags. Those are garbage.
