Customer Questions & Answers

Can this filter be washed?

The manual states that the VF500 is "made of high quality paper". Paper is generally not a washable material. Please clarify the washing endurance of the filter. Does Rigid offer a truly washable filter composed of synthetic materials that will withstand repeated washing?
Asked by: Retired
It will shorten the life drastically. There is no reinforcement on the inside and the filter nearly collapses. One of the layers on the inside partly washed off. If you want to wash filter get the Gore.

Will this filter fit my Rigid model WD0800 vacuum?
Asked by: Art
I use in the 5-gallon Ridgid vac. However, the product Iinformation at https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/vf5000-filter describes is use for Rigid vacs volume 5-gal and greater. Because your vac has an 8-gallon capacity, the informaiton provided (no personal experience) leads me to conclude that YES, this filter will fit your eight gallon vac. It's axial dimension is the largest available, with the axial dimension being smaller to fit into vacs of smaller volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement filter This is a replacement for the old paper filter. Having had this type of filter before, I couldn't do without. The washable feature is what I was really after.

Craftsman vacuum. I have not found a Craftsman brand filter with a 1/2 micron rating. I clean up a lot of sheetrock dust often inside of homes being lived in. This filter keeps that very fine dust from passing through the vacuum and right back out into the room, this is very nice when it is time to clean-up the job site.

Even after the exterior of the filter is heavily loaded, the vacuum level is not impaired. When heavily loaded, I use (outdoors) both the handle and bristle end of an old toothbrush to remove the debris from the deep redess between the pleats. After years of use and such ocassional cleaning, I have not observed a tear/hole in the filter, I purchased this as a spare, so that I can use it without interruption for cleaning. The pleating causes a very large surface area. The differntial pressue indicator on the 5-gallon Ridgid vac is a good indicator of filter loadiing, and thus impaired vacuum strength.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filters fine dust just as advertised. We had chipped up a tile floor which left a lot of dust from the mastic. Using this filter, there was no dust coming out of the exhaust of my Ridged shop vac. The only thing I wished I had purchased as an additional accessory, was the exhaust diffuser attachment which prevents the exhaust from having a strong stream of air that can blow dust around as you use the shop vac. I had to make sure I was holding the vacuum in a position to aim the exhaust air away from the area I was vacuuming.

I like the Patented QwikLock Filter Fastening System for easy filter changes. This feature makes things easier. Sheetrock dust has been difficult in the past, but with this filter the stray dust was nonexistence. We had a lot of sheetrock dust to get up and it went well.

I have a pellet stove and use the vacuum to clean, no dust makes it past the filter. I am able to use the compressed air to clean it and use it again, many times. this one is a backup.
