Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
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 Worth the extra cost for me. I replaced the original white filter with this blue one and just hose it off when it is full of dust. Let it sit overnight to dry and you are back in business. It is holding up well after 3-4 cleanings. The material is fairly heavy duty. It does a good job of trapping particles the size of drywall dust. The more of that type work you do the sooner you will want to rinse it. I use it in the 12 gal 4.25hp Ridgid unit. I didn't want to pay $30 for a filter but now I am glad I did. June 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product works great for super fine dust and debris. This product arrived fast and well package. It description was clearly defined and fit the machine perfectly. This product worked much better than the standard filter for our process of vacuuming up ceramic power and dust.The online ordering process was quick and simple. Thank you Home Depot for a great job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not as shown, not what I purchased Ordered a replacement for a Rigid 14 gallon / 6.0 HP Shop Vac. the image was correct but the item was different and did not have the bottom rubber end-cap. The exposed paper filter bottom will not hold up as well. This in not an exact replacement but it does fit so I am using it. September 23, 2014
