Questions & Answers

Does this filter fit an older model E43484 6 gal Ridgid?

Does this filter fit an older model E43484 6 gal Ridgid?
Asked by: JB
I’m not sure I would take the unit to the store with you to see if it will match

Can this filter be washed?

The manual states that the VF500 is "made of high quality paper". Paper is generally not a washable material. Please clarify the washing endurance of the filter. Does Rigid offer a truly washable filter composed of synthetic materials that will withstand repeated washing?
Asked by: Retired
It will shorten the life drastically. There is no reinforcement on the inside and the filter nearly collapses. One of the layers on the inside partly washed off. If you want to wash filter get the Gore.

3-Layer Fine Dust Pleated Paper Filter for 5.0 Plus Gal. RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 577.

I've rinse and let the filter fully dry for reuse once so far. The QwikLock fastening makes it super easy to install and remove from the filter cage, so no more using a filter plate nor screw nut. I have used the filter for many drywall and sawdust clean up. It's very functional!! The filter fits 5-20 gallon wet/dry vac. Very easy to install into your wet/dry vac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WD1060 It appears to be well made and durable. I have only used it once to remove the sand from a pool filter. The only problem I had was when I got down to close to the bottom of the filter the sand had some residual water and this combination I believe caused the hose to become plugged. Previously I had a smaller Shopvac which had a smaller hose and a less powerful motor and the same problem occurred. I was little surprised because the Rigid model has a larger hose as well as a much more powerful motor. I wish Rigid had included bag filter to extend the life of the cartridge filter, Overall I am quite pleased with this model and would highly recommend it.

I bought this filter to replace the filter that came with the shop vac 10 years ago. I do like this filter as it is cleanable by rinsing with water and it also filters much smaller dust particles than the OEM filter. Also, this filter has a base built in that you don't have to put the bottom plate on with the screw, you just push this filter on and screw on the nut and you're in business. While this filter is able to be rinsed with water, you can't use it while you're vacuuming water or liquid. If this filter lasts as long as the other one it may vary well outlive the shop vac I bought it for. For the price, I think this is a great filter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best outdoor vacuum for leaves We have a serious leaf-in-decorative-bark problem: How do you remove the leaves and leave the bark? This vacuum nails it.STill get a few pieces of bark, but my garden has never looked better. We also use to vacuum around our indoor bunny cage, lots of straw and bunny fluff - it works like a charm. My wife calls it R2 D2 :-) Looks like a little drone !!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR PURCHASE! Thank you RIDGID for your great products! Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine really sucks! This small, light and easy to manoeuvre shop vac's best feature is just how powerful the suction is. I've used it for general cleanup as well as for direct connection to my planer, in both arenas it performed exceptionally well. I bought the vac as I didn't have room for a shop dust collection system, I'm happy to say that with this sucker I don't need one. In fact having had both this would be my preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased ... good product. I bought this unit to replace a very old Shop-Vac. The only assembly required is to snap the wheels on and attach the carrying handle. The power is great, plenty of suction. It is not too loud, there is a muffler available, but it was out of stock. The hose fits my stationary tools perfectly. I have only had it for just over a week, but so far I am a very happy customer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product for the price. Suction is excellent. So much so it becomes a problem if you are doing the garage floor and attempt to do the floor mat, it will suck it up & won't let go till you turn it off. A simple regulator could be incorporated in the top of the wand that could be rotated to vent some of the suction from the outside rather than going to the tool head on the end of the wand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vac for the price Bought the vac about a week ago and only used it once to pick up dry materials. Quite impressed, a lot of power in this vac. My only negative comment and it is a very minor detail, is that it is too bad that the company did not think of a way the hose could be wrapped around the vac (similar to the electric cord) that way everything is at one place
