  • Filter Bag Does Not Fit WD1850

    Hi Folks,

    I bought a WD1850 a while ago and finally got around to putting it together. It seems to work great except we'd like to use a filter bag and the Ridgid Filter Bags that they they fit the WD1850 do not. The bag (and its instructions) looks like it's supposed to slip over the plastic pipe inside the container so that the cardboard fit between the two ribs.

    Problem is, on the wd1850, the pipe is not straight; it opens on the side, at a right angle to the pipe itself, is a rectangular opening, and in no way that I can see, can fit in the cardboard opening on the bag.

    Anyone else able to get this to work? I asked at Home Depot and they did not know and, being Saturday, the Ridgid offices are closed and I was hoping to get to this this weekend.
