For dry vacuuming, when do I use a vacuum bag vs a filter? Do you ever use a vacuum & a filter at the same time?

The instruction manual says nothing about using vacuum bags yet there are bags for it.

12 Gal. 5.0-Peak HP Wet/Dry Shop Vacuum with Tumbler is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 986.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The power of this vac is pretty good. It works really good and the attachments work as expected. ... The power of this vac is pretty good. It works really good and the attachments work as expected. All the attachments fit tight and there is a home for everyone one of them which makes it easy to move it around. For some reason the motor (gray part) does not fit snug against the drain bucket. The clamps do not "snap" tight on the bucket. I purchased a bigger vac last week and it had a lot of play in it. I returned it to exchange for another and the second one was worse. No one at the store had an answer for the gap. If you pick up the vac and move it and bump it just right, it gets loose and separates. So i decided to get a cheaper, smaller vac. Same thing but the clamps on this one are worse. The gap is still there and I think its even bigger than the other vac. Now, when you turn on the vac, the motor, gets sucked down to the bucket and cant be separated and does not cause any operational issues at all. other vacs that I have had in the past clamp down good, with very little play between the 2 parts. ** Nice Tumbler**

I personally use this model around the house and would definitely recommend it. I do not know how it would fair with everyday use for commercial purposes but it seems well built and durable. The motor has been more than sufficient for any application we have required. It has different areas for your attachments and the top comes off easily for quick cleanup. In my opinion this is a must have for any household.

The suction was powerful enough to pick up nails and small pieces of drywall after a small demolition project. The one complaint I have is that it is a wet/dry vac but does not come with a wet filter. That is sold seperately and not clearly marked on the box.

Trying to setup a dust collector for my shop. Awaiting Home Depot to ship the "Dustopper" I ordered. Seems it takes 10 days to send one from a store 100 miles downstate from my local store. I did take a look at how the motor attached to the vacuum canister, seemed somewhat loose fitting, but it appeared to draw down when the motor ran. Just assumed it would seal tighter, but maybe that's the way they're designed. Upon running the motor it appeared to have a high amount of suction which you would expect from a 5 HP unit.

The product worked as described but was missing screws. The part guide says it is supposed to have 10. It only came with 6 which means it is 4 short. Because of this, I cannot use the hose holders that are supposed to attach to the top of the unit.

I purchased a Rigid 12 gal. wet/dry vac from a sale table at Home Depot only to realize that there was no drain plug and no extension wands included. There was no “as is” notation on the vac. That was quite a surprise when I started to use the vac. The wet/dry vac is, however, a very nice product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hose attachment doesn't lock I had a rigid vac for over 10 years and it died finally. This new model doesn't lock the hose at the most important place, where it attaches to the unit. I can not pull it around the jobsite by the hose like the old one did. terrible design, cheap plastic. Used once, will be returned
