About This Product

Pair up. To get the next level in filtration and efficiency with your RIDGID wet dry shop vac, this kit offers a fine dust RIDGID filter (VF3500) combined with a 2 pack of RIDGID dust bags (VF3501) that fits RIDGID shop vacs 3 to 4.5 gallon. Used together, dust bags and fine dust filters can help optimize your wet dry vacuum performance for an efficient project cleanup experience. The RIDGID shop vac filter captures everyday dirt and debris such as sawdust, dirt and typical debris found in a basement garage or vehicle. Changing shop vac filters often is strongly recommended to increase the vac's performance and to help extend wet dry vacuum life as it protects the motor from harmful dust and debris. The addition of the dust bag allows for a no-mess drum while cleaning. Simply remove the dust collection bag from the shop vacuum and toss for a quick cleanup - no drum lifting needed. These high-efficiency filter bags can help vacuum performance and provide a cleaner operation because it minimizes debris clogs in the filter to increase the filter life. Take your project beyond with RIDGID.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Mike, Thanks for your inquiry. The replacement filters found at your local Home Depot store are taller than the filters that we had manufactured in the past; and comes with integrated rubber plate, they will fit your RIDGID® wet / dry vacuum without using any adapter. Please follow the following installation tips: 1. Carefully slide the filter over the filter cage and press down on the outside edge of the filter until the rubber gasket on the bottom of the filter seats securely around the base of the filter cage and against the lid. 2. Align the small center hole in the top of the filter cage over the threaded bolt on the filter cage. You may need to press firmly on top of the filter near the bolt to allow the filter nut to twist. If you have questions or concerns, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time or send us an email at info@ridgidvacs.com and we'll be glad to assist you.

          Finally a Filter that properly fits WD40700 by Rigid
          Purchased off-brands that claimed to fit the rigid model WD40700 but they didn't! This filter fit perfectly! Have only used once, so can't review longevity.

          Does not fit properly
          This is the exact model that my Rigid 4gal says to use, but it will not fit over the cage. I even tried to use silicone grease to lube it, and a large screwdriver to push into place, but as you can see from pics, it just squashes the filter. I tried turning/spinning it and it still would not fit down.

          Hello Thumbsmasher, Thanks for writing a review and we're sorry to have learned about your disappointment. For new vacs, you may need to wiggle down the filter. It's easier when the lid is placed upside down before installing the filter. We're interested to know more about this issue and if you need further assistance, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID Ridgid
            cheep garbage.
            last time I bought these bags they were great for keeping the dust down. I put one in and look back in the room was filled with dust and I said what's going on. they tore open in two spots with the bag only a quarter filled of just drywall dust no hard debris. two of the others broke through just by putting them on and had to be duct taped together. save your money just buy a filter cover that you can wash and reuse over and over

              I like that this shop vac is compact. I wanted it mainly for pet hair on hard wood floors. I like how it has an attachment bucket on one and to store them. Its not too loud as we'll. I wish there was a way to nearly store the hose. Overall I recommend this product.

              This product works really good when its new. Once the dust gets into the creases it looses its suction. I bang out the dust and reuse it several times. I've purchased about 5 of them in the last 2 months working on a new building. I give it a 3.
