1-Layer Everyday Dirt Pleated Paper Filter for 5.0 Plus Gallons RIDGID Wet Dry Shop Vacuums is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1626.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been using these Ridgid general purpose shop vac filters for years in my 15-year-old Craftsm... I've been using these Ridgid general purpose shop vac filters for years in my 15-year-old Craftsman 9 Gal shop vac as a replacement for the old Sears 'Red Stripe' filter that many of us have been using. I ding these on Value, as they seem way too overpriced for what they are, even with multiple cleanouts and re-uses. I personally think it's ridiculous that folks attempt to wash them out (it's a paper filter, folks!) and a little absurd that Ridgid recommends cleaning them out after each use, but to each his/her own. C'mon, I don't know any handyman friends who have the time to clean out their shop vac filters (unless maybe they're having a slow day, I guess). But you can get decent longevity out of these if you simply clean them out when they're plugged up with dust (the method I prefer is to suck them clean using a small crevice tool with my household vacuum) and they'll last you a while. Unless you need a true HEPA filter (use the green filter) or are generating a lot of drywall sanding dust (use the blue filter), you can get by on most dry jobs with these good General Purpose filters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will it survive the test of time? The stainless drum, base and wheels are the perfect quality for the price of the vacuum. The convenient on board accessory holders provide ease of use and keep every part together giving the vacuum a compact footprint. There is plenty of suction power but it is loud enough that ear protection is recommended. The only concern I have is for the harder plastic parts like the can-clips and the handle...I imagine that if the machine ever got knocked over onto one of these parts that they would easily break. However so far so good. The accessories are a little tight to put on but they don't fall off when in use and they don't get stuck so bad that you need two football players to pull them apart. Everything is relatively easy to use, so only time will tell how the quality stacks up.

They are good for everyday vacuuming but I’m cleaning the garage that mice invaded a two car garage and chewed up almost all the paper that was in there and not to mention the mess the mice made all over the floor, that’s where a little stonger filter comes in better Thank You

Each time the filter is changed it costs with tax over $18. It can not be cleaned or shaken off.The filter is glued to plastic housing that should not need replaced just the paper filter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from typical RIDGID good value I have a number of RIDGID power tools and accessories. They all have been excellent value and excellent long term performers. This vacuum has more suction than any I have ever owned and I will certainly continue to add to my collection of RIDGID products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great vac Since this my first vac, I don't have any to compare it to, but this is a good vac. I recently had an inch of water in basement and after pushing a broom for an hour, went and bought this vac. Easy to assemble, easily rolls and was done in 20 minutes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A decent vacuum that has so far performed the tasks asked of it. This vaccum has been used in combination with the Rigid fine dust filter and as of now does a great job of holding on to the dirt. Our previous shopvac would often let some fine dust back out into the room. This has solved that problem and more.

With no provided way to pull filter off over the knob that doesn’t unscrew it generally means a dusty mess and a single use (not able to shake out or blow off) the filter
