  • Emptying bag from DC2000 dust collector

    Seems I have an orphaned dust collector. Even Ridgid has nothing about it on their website and the only references I can find are on this board from people saying they heard such a machine was once made.

    Yeah, it was made. One was given to me. I have no manual and need to remove the bag to empty it. Anyone have instructions for this thing?

    If it's anything like my Harbor Freight DC the bag is held on by an over sized radiator type clamp. Just undue the clamp, slide the bag off of the DC and empty the bag.

      you can find a copy of the parts breakdown sheet at the link below which might be of help. The exploded diagrams will show you how it is assembled which should allow you to figure out how to remove and install the bag.
      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
