No doubt, EGO has become a leader in the rapidly expanding world of cordless outdoor power equipment. But this doesn’t just include mowers, blowers, trimmers, and saws. There’s also the trusted wet dry vac, and EGO has added one to its line of 56V gear.
Here’s a look at what the WDV0904 has and what it can do. And, after the tour, we’ll leave it up to you to decide if this tool has what it takes.

EGO 56V Wet Dry Vac Performance
Par for the course with EGO equipment, the WDV0904 runs on a brushless motor. Fueling this model is a 56V (5.0Ah) lithium-ion battery. Together, they produce 110 CFM of suction and 100 inches of water lift. Particularly for a cordless model, these numbers are in the ballpark for a reliable shop vacuum.
And, as the name implies, the EGO 56V wet dry vac can handle it all. We’re talking liquids (e.g., flooded basements, or, God forbid, a backed-up bathroom, etc.), as well as solids (e.g., shop floor messes, leaf-filled cellar ways, and the list goes on).
In total, it gives you a 9-gallon tank capacity.
- Model: EGO WDV0904
- Brushless motor
- 9-gallon capacity
- 110 CFM, 100-in lift
- Filter cleaning function
- Remote power control
- Up to 60 minutes of runtime
In terms of operation, the EGO 56V wet dry vac has three power modes. Depending on which combination of power settings you choose, the runtimes are consistent with the quality you’d expect from an EGO battery. So, you should get about 60 minutes on Eco mode, 30 minutes on High, and 20 minutes on Turbo. (These durations are rather impressive, especially if you already have a few 56V batteries on deck.)
You can also control the power mode onboard or with the remote buttons on the hose end.
Something else that caught our eye is the WDV0904’s self-cleaning filter function, which makes it easier to keep this tool operating at peak efficiency for longer.
