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 Vacuum is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1644.
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**

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improvement This was a warranty replacement for an older version that stopped working suddenly and I noticed right away that there have been changes for the better. The positive catches prevent the power head falling off and spraying dust everywhere when it was lifted, the top handle makes it much easier to carry and the card storage is better. The locking hose connections are a great idea too but the hose storage is still a bit iffy but maybe that can be solved. This is a powerful vac that I use daily for remodeling and it works well. A bit bulky to transport and carry around on the job but once on site it really performs. As well as for general cleanup it also gets used with my orbital sander for plaster sanding and sawdust collection from mitre and table saws. Whenever my granite guys come to install a counter they always want to borrow it as “it works so much better than theirs”. Overall a great tool and you can’t beat the lifetime warranty and customer service, Lance was very helpful.

My 10 year old model of this didn't have the ability of a collection bag and for fine dust it made a mess to empty . This newer model collects it by use of a bag before it reaches the interior filter cartridge and keeps the dust inside the bag . Beware of buying the fine media expensive filter cartridge as they restrict the air vacuum flow and are not needed when using the disposable bag . How did it preform _ VERY well but don't try to fill the bag more than then 1/3 to halve full when picking up cement or dry wall wall dust as the walls of the bag become saturated and restricts the air flow .

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features. I purchased the Ridgid 12 gallon High Performance Wet/DryVac, to pick up debris while getting a new roof put on my moms home. It would have been impossible to sweep and pick up the dust an small pieces of ceiling and roofing tiles without the Ridgid wet/dry vac. The Ridgid wet/dry vac picks up like a power vac should. I'm so glad I chose Ridgid.
