Product Overview

The RIDGID 5-layer pleated paper filter is designed for your RIDGID wet/dry vacuum (5 Gal.s and larger) to capture allergens and trap particles such as everyday dirt, drywall dust, pollen and pet dander. The replacement filter can be washed and, if dried properly, reused. Changing shop vac filters often is strongly recommended to increase the vac's performance and to help extend vacuum life as it protects the motor from harmful dust and debris. This product offers one 5-layer HEPA Media Filter that fits all RIDGID wet/dry shop vacs 5 Gal.s and larger and should only be used for dry pickup. RIDGID provides other filtration offerings, including VF5000 Fine Dust Filter (sold separately) and VF7000 Wet Filter (sold separately), depending on the job application and type of cleanup mess. Also, a range of value pack sizes (2-count, 4-count, 8-count and 16-count) are available to accommodate a range of project needs. With its patented Qwik Lock feature, the filter simply snaps on or off the shop vacuum for easy cleaning and to quickly switch filter options.
  • Ideal for capturing allergens, such as pet dander and pollen.
  • Patented Qwik Lock filter fastening system makes installing or removing your filter quick, easy and secure, no tools or hardware needed.
  • Pleated paper filters can be washed and reused, if dried properly.
  • Filter made with HEPA-rated material but does not meet EPA or RRP guidelines for certified HEPA filtration.
  • RIDGID always recommends the use of a cartridge filter for dry pick-up. If picking up wet debris, RIDGID recommends the VF7000.
  • Includes 1 Filter

Powerful vac when the inlet port stays attached
I bought this month ago and after the first 2 or 3 uses I noticed the inlet port had come out of the dust drum. I attempted to fully insert the inlet port but it will not stay. The lock tabs will not expand to secure the port. What say you Ridgid?

Overpriced piece of foam
This thing is literally just a glorified hollow piece of foam that is glued to the plastic Ridgid adapter. It is literally way too expensive for what it is.

    Great vacuum, built a stand and use with separator
    I bought this around Black Friday and it’s been great. I built a stand out of pvc and plywood to mount a bucket and dust separator and it’s been great. I will buy a longer and likely upgraded hose but as it comes out of the box, it’s effective.

    Great cordless vacuum
    I bought this vacuum to vacuum bees up in my bee business. Definitely helps me when there is no power to plug in to.

    Just like a corded vacuum!
    I've had this for about 4-5 months now and I love it. It's real nice to not have to plug it in so the time. That said, I do wish that it was a hybrid that gave an option to plug it in, cause I don't always have available batteries with enough juice. Also, get yourself a couple 9Ah batteries. They give it more power and they last A LOT longer! I ended up buying 4 9Ah batteries so I can keep rotating them. It makes a world of difference compared to the 4Ah batteries that I started off with, with this vacuum.

    Lightweight and portable
    This vacuum is great for portability and movement. The fact there are no cords helps you get around and do your job without getting tangled up. Two things it could use as upgrades is a drain plug and an option to plug in if the battery drains. I bought two 9AH batteries so I never really run out. This vacuum is a revolutionary item to have in your tool shed/garage.
