  • shop vac dust bags

    I notice Ridgid now has HEPA filters (VF6000) for their line of shop vacs. I looked for some collection bags, but they only fit a few models. Does anybody who owns the 6 gallon (WD0625)or 9 gallon (WD0945) ridgid vac find drywall/fine dust bags for them?

    I don't own a RIDGID brand shop vac so I can't be sure these will work for you, but I did find what may work at Sears. The Craftsman line (most models) are made by Emerson-Ridgid under contract. These were on the Sears web site and say they are for 6-8 gallon size Craftsman models, so maybe they would work for you.

    Model: 17892
    Item: 00917892000

    If you end up totally frustrated, most ShopVac brand models do take bags and their drum style machines in the 5-8 gallon range would use these bags and filter.

    For machines in the 10-14 gallon range you would use these.

    I can say that they won't work in a RIDGID or Craftsman. I really think that Emerson-Ridgid needs to catch up when it comes to their line of shop vacs and accessories. Sears has far more accessories than Home Depot so they are a good place to look.
