I have a Ridgid 12 gallon in the shop and we bought a Ridgid 4 gallon for the house when our old vac died. The 4 gallon is very good, almost as powerful as the 12 gallon, and the 12 comes very close to matching the dust collection system in the shop.

Considering that the WD4070 4 gallon runs about $70, it sounds like a good deal. If nothing else, the hose and attachments are worth more than that. Check it out and make sure it runs well.

For that price I’d buy it just to vaccuum the cars.

I bought it! it’s a bit dirty but that’s the only thing that i can complain about, and thats digging for something to whine about. it just came with a hose and one attachment but i’s great!
