About This Product

Take on projects confidently with the 4 Gal. Portable Wet Dry Shop Vacuum featuring a specialized RIDGID shop vac accessory kit for different cleaning applications. The RIDGID attachments (DUAL-FLEX hose, utility nozzle, car nozzle and extension wands) included with this compact 4 Gal. RIDGID wet dry vacuum provides a more customized and efficient cleanup. The 3 extension wands extend the overall reach for hard-to-get-to places, the locking hose with DUAL-FLEX offers uninterrupted cleaning through its unique locking technology and the utility nozzle is perfect for cleaning up large areas. When you need more intricate cleaning options for smaller areas, the car nozzle will do the job. The included 4 Gal. RIDGID shop vac is a small, lightweight vac that packs a punch with amped-up power and performance on the inside and a modern look on the outside. This wet dry vacuum has a 5.0 peak horsepower motor that can tackle even the messiest projects. The wet dry vacuum has large rear wheels and casters that provides great mobility over carpeted floors, thresholds, and rough floors at jobsites. This is an ideal vacuum for car cleaning and in-home tasks. Pro Tip: Add a RIDGID filter to a RIDGID shop vac to maintain the power of the vac and extend vacuum life. Add a RIDGID dust bag (VF3501; sold separately) to the shop vacuum to help keep the wet dry vacuum drum clean and for quick pickups.

        Q:How many watts does it take to operate this vac?
        by|Jun 4, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello Darryl, Thank you for reaching out to us with your inquiry about our product. We appreciate your interest and are here to assist you. In regards to the running watts calculation, it can be determined by multiplying the amps by the voltage. For this particular vacuum, it operates at 120 volts and is rated at 9 amps. Therefore, the running watts for this vacuum is 1080. For startup power requirements, it's worth noting that it could go as high as three times the running watts. This means that during startup or initial power surge, the vacuum may require up to 3 times 1080 watts. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding our product specifications or any other inquiries, please feel free to contact our dedicated Customer Service team at 1-800-474-3443. We are available from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Central Time. Alternatively, you can also send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be more than happy to assist you. Thank you once again for your interest in our product. We look forward to helping you make an informed decision. Best regards, RIDGID

              I love this product! My sunroof drains were leaking into my car and I had water sloshing around the floor under the carpeting, I purchased this wet dry vac to hopefully get rid of the water in my car and it did an excellent job of that. If it picks up dirt as well as it did the water I will be very happy. I have not tried that aspect yet I’m too busy trying to get the water out right now! The suction was excellent. I couldn’t believe how strong the suction was. I would recommend this product to anyone. I just wish they would make the crevice tool a little bit longer because I had a hard time fitting it in between the seat and the side door to get the water from there it wasn’t quite long enough.

              A 4 Gal Workhorse Indeed [WD4070]
              I picked up the Rigid WD4070 (4 gal w/d) when I had to install a new cooler and do some roof repairs as well. It performed like a tank, sucking debris, cleaning site, cleaning the ductwork. Every task I threw at it, it nailed it. Perfect size - not too big to get up to the roof, and small enough to set on top of a perch to do a great job cleaning out the duct when forcing air from roof with a yard blower. Since, I've used it around the house, to clean the vehicles, and clean up from some woodworking. A great little shop vac that really punches above its class.

                  Sucks a bunch!
                  I have been using the 4 gal vacuum with sanders and a battery powered planner. I am trying to finish new doors for my house and the honey do list keeps adding to my already long list of chores. Luckily, vacuuming up wood shavings from the handheld planner and the sanders isn't apart of that list. I do wish that I could find vacuum adapters so I would have to hold the hose onto the tool while working.

                  Perfect Applications!
                  This is the fifth one that I have purchased. I bought three for my business in Ft. Lauderdale, and gave one to my flooring specialist. I also purchased one for my personal use. My condo's flooring is primarily vinyl, and the expensive vacuum I purchased, could not compete with the performance of my RIDGID wet/dry vacuum. I also bought the nozzle with a light.

                    Big power in small places
                    I have had the same Ridgid 6hp vacuum for over 20 years and it just wont die. Only problem is that it was way too big for my bathroom remodel I was doing. I bit the bullet and picked up the 4 Gallon portable wet/dry vacuum and boy do I wish I had done this years ago. It is so easy to use in tight spaces and easy to move around compared to its bigger grandpa that rarely leaves the garage. Plenty of power for many jobs. We use it for everything now.

                        Bought this and went to put together. It had what looked like a rabbit cage clean up inside. I should have known better to buy the last one.
