About This Product

The RIDGID pleated paper filter is designed for your RIDGID wet/dry vacuum (5 gallons and larger) to capture fine dust and traps particles such as mold, fine powders and cool fireplace ash. 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 fine dust filter that fits all RIDGID wet/dry shop vacs 5 gallons and larger and should only be used for dry pickup. RIDGID provides other filtration offerings, including VF6000 HEPA Material Filter (sold separately), VF7000 Wet Filter (sold separately), and VF8000 HEPA 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 variety 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.

        Q:My Ridgid WP10600 won't turn on as if there is no power going to the motor. I just used it a couple days ago and everything worked fine. I've cleaned the filter and don't see anything else that could be the problem. No troubleshooting section in manual.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Make sure power supply was on, the filter was clean and take away filter before using for wet. You need to change the filter as needed, the finest one need to change more frequent, not determined by how many times. Mostly concerned is the motor overheat or short circuit by moisture.

              Awesome Vac
              Check out this picture. As you can see it sucked up until there was no more room at all!!

                Be careful - the latches/handles snap off!
                I purchased the 10-gallon stainless WD1060 vacuum. I was handing the vacuum down from an attic opening with my friend below. The vacuum had bacteria (Zoogloea) laden water inside as I have just sucked out an air conditioner drain line that was completely clogged. As I was lowering the vacuum down through the attic hatch, with my friend holding the vacuum from below, the plastic latch/ handles gave out and the drum crashed down onto the stepladder, tilted over, splashed the contents (which is fairly disgusting) all over my friend and then down onto the hallway carpet. Quite the disgusting mess and my friend drenched.... Looking at the design of the handles, it is VERY easy for the handles to pop off of the very small round plastic pins when there is some weight in the drum. The handles do not lock in on the pins (they slip on) and look like they are designed more for easy assembly at the factory than ensuring something like what happened to us doesn't ever happen. I probably had two gallons of water in the vacuum, so not that heavy, but not that light either. Very disappointing design. I modified the handles by drilling a pilot hole into the round pins and adding a washer and screw to lock in the latches. After adding the screws I filled the drum with water up to the vacuum hole and I could lift the vacuum by the handle securely. The latch/handle is OK being plastic, but the other parts should be metal. I have added pictures of how I added the screws. I used 3 drill bits to make the hole to make sure I didn't split the plastic.

                  Go with the OEM part for Ridgid vacuum filters!
                  I purchased some off brand filters that were spec'd to fit my old WD06701 6 Gallon Wet/Dry Vac. Yes, the off-brand was less costly but the filter media did not appear as robust as the VF5200 filters. The off-brands also did not fit as well even with some universal adapters. I was very impressed with its construction quality and overall fit. I feel that the $7.00 premium price over a generic was well worth the expense. I also decided to use a pool filter mesh cover to see how it keep larger particles from imbedding in the filter.

                    Powerful and versatile
                    I have another corded Ridgid vac. However, I wanted something to take with me on jobs or outside the home where I would not need to reply on a power cord. I specifically use this cordless vac when I do wood working. I built a nice little rolling cart to hold this vacuum and a dust separate thing. See photos. I can hook up the vac to any of my powertools that create sawdust and the cordless vac is very powerful and strong enough to elimate all dust. The separator I use in conjunction with the vac, traps all the sawdust into a container so it never even makes it into the vacuum. I also installed the Ridgid HIPA filter and the little noise compressor thing from the exhaust of the vacuum. nNotice in the pic I used the Ridgid black and orange colors on the wood cart and even spray painted the metal on the wheels with the orange color.

                      Works well, but box update required
                      Does the job of vacuum filter well, but recommendations on the box are unclear. One side says good for drywall dust, but the chart shows that it is not, only the HEPA version is capable of drywall dust. Simple update required!

                          No inlet into bag
                          There was a manufacturing defect with the VF3502 bags I purchased. The was no actual hole into the bag behind the cardboard collar or if there were perforations they were too strong to allow the first bag layer to open when the collar was pressed onto the inlet tube inside the vacuum drum - pressing any harder would have torn the cardboard collar off the expensive bag. I ended up using scissors to cut the necessary hole into the bag.

                            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?
