  • Ridgid Air Filtration System

    Hi everyone
    About 8 years ago i bought this air filtration system.
    It worked great for the first 6 months until it come time to change the hepa filter.
    Since then i have been to several home depots where i bought it from and tried to find a filter for it and to this day i still can't find them.
    Every store i have been in said they didn,t have any and on top of that i paid $ 220.00 for it .
    I have seen very similar machines now for half that price. I'm not impressed.

    Does anyone know where i can find these filters here in Canada ?


    Thanks
    john

    I don't know if they'll be able to help you out or not but you might want to call or send an email to Cummins Tools. They are the authorized seller of reconditioned and discontinued Ridgid tools. Hopefully, they can solve your problem.

        You're welcome John, I hope they can help you out.

        I had another thought. If you know the RIDGID part number for that filter, check out M&D Mower. Type RIDGID and the part number in the Search box.

          I believe this is the same as my craftsman air filtration system made by Emerson just different colors. I have had no luck with replacement finding original filters from Cummings. I made up filters from one of those high efficiency filters for window air conditioners. It works very well I forget what micron it filters down to but it gets rid of fine dust particles. I replaced the cone filter and the pre filter with the home made filters when I make a lot of dust from sanding I will change out the 2 filters after about 8 hours of use. I haven’t tried M&D Mower hope that works for you if it does post the part number I am sure we are not the only ones with this filter.

            Thank you Dave and ump

            I was trying to think of the other brand i saw and IT was the craftsmen
            Thanks for reminding me.

            The sad part is there was almost no difference between the two other then the Ridgid was $ 100.00 more.
            That's a great idea making my own filter. glad someones thinking.

            Thanks again gentlemen.

                    John,

                    I just picked one up at HD and it seems to work fine in my small shop. I hung it from the ceiling and keep it on lo. You can hardly hear it and it clears away the table saw dust.

                    I don't see it on the Ridgid site here under products other then the link I sent you for the filters but HD had a bunch of them on the floor. Price was good too.

                      wow that is hard to believe since ridgid stopped selling them 3-4 years ago. your home depot must of had a bunch of them hidden and just found them recently.

                        That might explain why I can't find it on their site. It may also me a new item since it does have a differnet model number from the older version.

                          I have never been able to find them in their stores but they did manage to dig some up for $ 25.00 a piece.
                          I think i will stock up on them.

                            Ok I sent an email into Ridgid and confirmed they are indeed selling a new unit. The Air Filtration unit I bought ($99) is model #AF2100. Those units are brand new. So far the unit has been working great. I only use it on low but it does a nice job of removing the airborn dust after table saw ripping.

                              That's the kinda deal I'm looking for w/ the af-2100s at my local depot. I think I'll wait em out. The units at the 2 stores near me are not movin.
