Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just an OK product, clogs easily from sawdust This is you average paper shop vac filter. They recommend it for sawdust but fine sawdust will clog this filter after a while and you will lose suction. November 24, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really good & long-lasting filter I've owned my Ridgid wet/dry vac for well over ten years now and I'm only on my second filter. Now, keep in mind, my wet/dry vac isn't going continuously. It's been used to do a variety of clean-up jobs - everywhere from sawdust to dust to grit & grime and it's been very effective at all tasks. As "agoodhandyman from Chicago" says, the filter cleans easily.I cleaned out my first one several times and it continued to do just as effective a job. I don't know if this is the best thing for my wet/dry vac but it sure makes for a long-lasting filter. I'm very happy with both the wet/dry vac and the filter. The team are a well-worth-it purchase. But, for the sake of this review, I highly recommend this filter. August 1, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by #BESTFILTEREVER I use my Rigid shop vac often in my work. I depend on it to take care of the big messes I encounter. The filter is as important as the motor. This filter makes sure that whai I suck up doesn't blow back out. LOVE IT!!! July 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine with older vacs I noticed a couple of reviews stating this didn't work with older rigid vacs. True it's not the same as the old filters that were open ended on both sides. If your vac has the black plastic plate and white nut, you have to ditch the black plastic plate and install the nut so the pointed end is facing up towards you. The opposite chamfered end of the nut mates perfectly to the built in rubber cover and makes a perfect seal. If that sounds confusing, rest assured the single picture instruction thats printed on the box makes it easy to install. There's no retrofitting or modification involved. December 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dont be cheap, change me i would just clean off the one that came with the shop vac, I changed the filter and it sucks like Its new. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product fit the shop vac and is designed to last This was a replacement filter. Easy to install and provides great dust and debris filtering for my RIdgid shop vac. This filter is designed to last for years of use and is easy to clean. My first filter of this type lasted over 12 years for medium/heavy workshop and outdoor use. December 17, 2013
