Tug-A-Long Hose
The 7 foot Hose kinked from the first use. Now, everytime I use it, it folds over at kink and I always have to adjust the vacuum so it straightens out. The kink weakened the hose.

    Major Design Flaw
    Design flaw makes this vacuum frustrating to use as the exhaust port and suction port are on the same side, thus everything you try to vacuum gets blown away before you even get the chance to suck it up. Rigid, what were your engineers thinking??
    by
    Response from RIDGIDFeb 25, 2021
    Hello Jay, That's odd. The suction port of this vac is in front located on the orange drum while the exhaust port is on the opposite side near the accessory storage bin. Did you perhaps have the lid placed backwards onto the drum? If you need assistance, 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

      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.

        What were they thinking when they made it?
        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.

        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.

            Sweet little vac
            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.

              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
                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.

                  Awesome vacuum for car detailing
                  If my van was stolen an I had to start all over again, this would be the vacuum I’d buy... hands down. The suction is consistently powerful no matter what you’re cleaning. It’s light weight, portable, and the tool caddy on the back is perfect for my brushes and attachments. It easily wheels around vehicles and it’s low profile helps avoid getting stuck on tow hitches.

                    The best shop vac I’ve ever used. Tremendous suction in a small package. I bought the VT2520 2 - 1/2” dia. hose so I can vacuum larger items. Other vacs this size are always only 1- 7/8” or smaller so this is a tremendously useful option. You’ ll have to buy all new 2 1/2” accessories, unfortunately. Also great thing is the option for a HEPA filter! The unit comes with a good filter, however. Locks are at the important connections so they don’t come out. The lid buckles down very securely. Also available as an option is a muffler. It definitely reduces the noise significantly , with some reduction in suction. It also prevents the exhaust air from blowing everything around. It is easily removed or added as needed.The unit is pretty loud without it, though not as loud as my old Craftsman shop vacs. The vac has a place to store the cord and an onboard bin! Ridgid has thought of everything!

                      10 Year Review: This little sucker has got the job done for about 10 years! I bought it when I got married and we bought our first house. It has done jobs such as vacuuming the car, pick up plant dirt spills in the house, suck up and help me treat pet and baby pee accidents, unclog AC drain, used as a blower (with hose attached to exhaust), pump out water from small flooded areas and today it helped me clear a very touch clog in the kitchen sink main drain. I'm not one to write many reviews, but as I was cleaning it after unclogging the sink today, I thought it really deserved this review. If you're looking to buy it and are reading this review, don't hesitate. Just hope they still "make 'em like they used to" and you'll have a vacuum for years to come! Thank you RIDGID for being one of the few companies left that makes a product to last many years!

                        Hello RIDGID Customer, We're sorry to learn your disappointment. The filter assembly fo this vac has the Qwik lock system wherein the ball locks the filter in. To remove the filter, you just need to turn the lid upside down, pull up on the rubber cover of the filter while your thumb pushing down on the ball stud. This action will cause the filter to release from the filter cage assembly. If you need further assistance, you may call our Customer Service 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.

                          I own a painting business and have purchased about 8 of these over the last 15 years. I use them almost every day, so they get heavy use. The switches go out after a few years and the plugs often go bad. Also, it is really unfortunate that this vac no longer comes with a brush attachment. This is the attachment I use the most. To buy brush attachment for this vac is way over-priced. You have to buy them with another tool/attachment, and it costs about $13-$14. I would think in today's world, were we can get seemingly everything from china so cheap, one could buy brush attachment for about $5. Also, the vac no longer comes with a diffuser. I really need a diffuser; it prevents the exhaust from acting like a leaf blower and knocking over furniture and other items in homes. The hose is thin and bends/kinks easily. These are things a professional needs. Other than that, good shop vac. Easy to carry or use on wheels. Powerful.

                            Suction and blowing are good, but they come short on many features. When I opened the box, I found a permanent kink in the suction hose, formed by speedy packing, and when I vacuumed with it, the kink got worse and shut off the air flow. I repaired the kink by squeezing the kinked part of the hose in a vise and tightening twisting thick copper wire in a couple wraps around that area. When I used it again, I could see the formation of a kink at the other end of the hose. I wanted to suck up water so I tried to take off the filter like they say, and couldn't do it. In no way could I press down on the center tab and pull the filter off. I even pressed with a flat piece of metal to protect my thumb, to no avail. I tried hammering on the tab. I tried twisting it with a pliers. I COULD NOT REMOVE THE FILTER! So I kept it in and sucked up water, wetting the filter, which collapses once wet, probably cutting off much air flow, and will damage it. Also, the suction tube is much too stiff, not flexible (hence the kinks). And also, the snap locks that hole the hose to connections is cheaply molded onto the tube, and will probably fail or break with usage. Finally, the end attachment for sucking on flat surfaces does not have a brush and it's one piece rigid plastic, which makes it impossible to vacuum under low tables. I had to modify the swivel kind (with brush) from my old vacuum in order to fit on the larger diameter Rigid hose. No, I don't recommend this vacuum, and I'm very surprised at these poor designs. After many decades of such technology, you'd think that certain tested, proven practices would be followed. The picture shows the kink repair, the kink forming, and the jury rigged, old swivel scoop with brushes.

                                Exceptional Performance and Value
                                I was looking for an outdoor vacuum to use in my garage and vehicles. I read multiple reviews and selected the rigid 4 gallon with 5HP power combined with the auto detailing kit. The performance of this unit ant the auto kit is exceptional. The attachments are well-designed and the triple filter on the vacuum handle the debris and pet hair in my vehicles. Highly recommend this unit for other pet owners wanting to keep their vehicles and garage clean.

                                    Wow. This vacuum is my most important asset while working using it to remove debris from all cracks and crevices. This vacuum is powerful, lightweight, and overall quiet (as far as wet/dry vacs go). I use a crevis tool constantly so it’s nice having the smooth suction and ability to reach anywhere! The storage container is perfect to store attatchments and I even roll my cord and place in there also. 10/10 on conscience! Only wish is a longer hose with the same durability of the included one. Rigid you crushed it with this one. Jordan Fox fb,ig: Fox.Detailing

                                      Power is good but not outstanding. Remember when you buy a dry vac horsepower and volume is the key. High hp and low canister volume. Storage is pretty easy. Physics rules.... 5 hp and gallon and half volume would be ideal.

                                      I was looking for a “mini-shop vac” to solve a specific problem: With a couple of chinchillas and a guinea pig in the house and two asthmatic humans, I needed something that could suck up fine mineral chinchilla bath dust, rodent feces, pelleted food and litter from cages and carpet without giving out during the job. I knew that hay and wooden sticks could clog up a narrow diameter hose, so I could collect that first. But I had seen hay clog up large diameter hoses, too. My research online sent me to Ridgid. The 4 gal. vacuum looked like it would be perfect, especially since I could purchase other accessories, in particular, dustbags and a user-cleanable HEPA filter. Unfortunately, the HEPA filter was on back-order. When the vacuum arrived, I was really happy because it was exactly what I wanted! It was light enough for me to lift with all accessories and carry around even up and down stairs. It was easy to separate the lid from the dust drum and to fit all of the accessories together. I found that the basic accessories were surprisingly adequate for what I needed (flexible hose, two rigid extension wands, a multi-purpose carpet tool, an edger-type tool, and a user-cleanable fine dust filter). I did use dust bags because the main reason for this purchase was to vacuum up that fine mineral dust. I also loved that there is a place for everything to be stored compactly on the vacuum itself. The power cord is 20’ long so I was able to go from one side of my house to the other without ever having to switch sockets. I found that the suction is almost alarmingly strong so that things not planned to be vacuumed can disappear if in reach. Hay and chew sticks that were hidden managed to be sucked right through without any clogging of the hose, and a few other items went in that were a little more valuable. The suction remained strong even when the bag was half full, and I was still able to vacuum up things even when the bag was almost completely full when the suction was reduced. I was impressed that the fine dust filter handled the dust without any of it getting out into the air. Furthermore, with the use of the dust bag, the dust filter was kept almost pristine even after the bag was full. The use of the dust bag helped me avoid having to revisit the dust when it came time to empty the bucket. There are a number of accessories that can be purchased for this nice little wet/dry vac, but I was impressed with the basic model. I would probably like to get the car kit later. I don’t think that I will need the HEPA filter given how well the dust bag and fine dust filter worked. I bought this vacuum at the beginning of December 2017. I highly recommend this little powerhouse for anyone who is looking for a shop vac that is lighter in weight and has a smaller footprint, and for people with allergies who need to have a vacuum that will not spew dust and allergens into the air.

                                        I bought her about 3 years ago for around 60 bucks on sale. And she has performed flawlessly for me. I don't have carpets in my home so this was perfect choice for me. It has powerful suction, enough for me. It just sucks up the dust and really helps with my cleaning chores...........

                                          Purchased a few weeks ago and am disappointed. It's a very powerful vacuum, but the "4-gal" capacity is misleading because the large filter takes up a lot of dry vac capacity; and when using as a wet vac the water starts leaking as soon as it reaches the bottom level of the intake/exhaust holes. Actual capacity is more like 2 gal. tops. It's also a little awkward to empty. Blower option is a joke: the hose won't lock into the exhaust hole and blows right out as soon as you turn it on. Pros: strong suction, lightweight, easy to move. Cons: limited capacity, especially as a wet vac due to location of intake/exhaust holes; blower option useless; awkward to empty.

                                            I bought this for its Wet Vac function and the blower function. I use it mainly to blow dirt, bugs and spider webs from my Lanai No-see-um screens, and blow up air mattresses when the grandkids visit, as well as suck up any water that may permeate the Lanai Hurricane Windows. The Blowing power is amazing for such a small shop vac. The only issue is that the blower actually blows the hose off of the connector when I bend the hose too much. There is a latch on the hoses for the machine and connectors, but it would be better if the latch at the machine was both on top and side of the output to rectify this issue. I looked long and hard for a shop vac with this kind of blowing power, so I will keep it and come up with a way to keep the hose on the machine
