Kinda stupid request; It would be better to ask about the shop vac itself, which I am disappointed in!! There is not a good shop vac on the market that I am aware of. ShopVac Brand is horrible, I owned a dozen of them, all crap. Now this Ridged fails to impress!! Wand has clips that catch on everything, big nuisance. Has a window in hose which will not stay put, open or closed, big nuisance. The filter is an odd size and so the normal size in my stock are not used. Not advertised on box so one can make an informed decision.

Ran the vacum for years with a standard filter and no bags, decided to try out the hepa filter with disposable bags. Haven't seen dust blow out the outlet yet, like I have before. Makes me alittle more comfortable with little ones in the house. I will not be goin back to a standard filter, but in conjunction with the bags I dont imagine replacing the filter anytime soon...

Contrary to what is listed as a replacement size for the Rigid 4.5 Gallon shop vac, this filter is too short and will not be held in place by the quick lock stud. A 4000, 5000 or 6000 series filter is actually what fits the vac. Can' t really comment on performance, but it is just a scaled down version of their larger HEPA filters which are great units.
