Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This filter has excellent filtering capability. I have two of these filters I use when doing my wood working projects. They are excellent filters. I change them and wash them and have had one of my filters for over 5 years. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great on fine concrete dust. Used on fine concrete dust and sawdust. Works great. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good filter for cleaning pellet stove ash I bought the Ridgid shop vac to use for cleaning my pellet stove of ashes after ruining a regular HEPA filter house vac cleaning it. I wasn't sure if the blue filter for fine dust wold be sufficient or if I needed to purchase the more expensive HEPA filter. This worked and doesn't release any soot particles into the air when vacuuming that I have seen or noticed. It should be noted that I need to completely dust the room where the stove is located and then try again to get a better feel but I have this vac/filter combo 3 times now and it is not requiring any extra dusting that I can tell so far. I did notice a reduced suction after using it in my 4 gallon vac but I don't mind cleaning the filter once every third use. January 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dust filter Purchased shop vac on sale but it came with paper sheet filter. Used vac to vacuum out fireplace (2 days after fire was out). Ash dust exited the exhaust port and caused huge mess in house. Should have purchased filter with vac but tried to not spend the additional $15.00 for the better filter. So much for that.
