Well, good news, you don't need a bag! The trash just settles to the bottom of the bucket and you just dump it out.

I own one of these -- it has many little operational anoyances -- like wheels falling off, lid popping off, etc. If you run into these scenarios and want help on fixes, drop me a line.

Would you please rate my response. I think you'll see some icons at the bottom of the post to enter a rating.

Safe way to vacuum drywall dust



SAVE THAT VAC

One of the hardest things on a shop vac is drywall dust. It is so fine that it gets through the regular filter and destroys bearings/bushings and ruins the motor. Just the other day, a friend commented that he had to get a longer hose as his vac was blowing out a lot of drywall dust because the filter was slipping down!

High performance filters are available at most hardwares and box stores. They resemble the paperbag filters in carpet vacuums and catch the drywall dust so that the bag can just be thrown away when done. The bag is U-shaped to install in the shop vac and have clearance around the regular cartridge filter. The inlet has a rubber seal that pushes around the inlet on the inside of the tank. Just run the vac normally but spare it and your lungs!!!

Kobalt 10 saw blows dust everywhere ,even with a 2 shop vac connected to the dust chute .


It is possible that the dust chute on the Kobalt saw is plugged, not allowing the vacuum to pick up the dust. Run a rod through the dust tube and see if that clears it.

The hole behind the saw blade can become blocked solid with sawdust ( especially if the timber is green or wet). clean out the vacuum hose back to the collector.

Need some more information, are you vacuuming dry wall dust or wet dust or saw dust ? The reason I ask is sometime their are "upgrades" available for the newer models of vacs you may not be aware of, when I worked at the Big Box H D tool rental center the vac we rented out used a water filtration set up instead of bags U might wont to check newer model for any changes, like you ,I had Craftsman for over 15 yrs. and when it died the replacement vac had a new mod for the filter that I always thought was needed. Good luck , Bret

I am vacueming concrete dust the filter is not filtering properly and the dust is bloing out of the vacuum


Hi,
When doing fine dust you need to get the paper filters that slide over the foam one and then also get the bag that slips right over the hole coming into the tank... this combination will get you dust free...

How to stop dust from escaping the shop vac tub


The only sure fire way is to use a filter, bag and ensure you have what they call a "noise muffler" but in all reality it's a filter that not only dulls the noise but doesn't let dust escape via the access there in the rear.

Electrolux Model 2100 vacuum won't work


hi from uk may i suggest you remove cover and the new dust collection bag then if you look in the bag compartment there is a gauze filter fitted usually grey in colour ? at opposite end of compartment where bag connects this gauze filter is the outlet from bag compartment that the air exhales when vac is operating ie as vac **** up dust into bag the bag has microscopic holes that allow sucked up air and dust to collect but keeps dust from passing into bag chamber but allows air to escape thro holes and so enter bag chamber then escapes via the gauze filter to outside of vac hope you follow this ?? now if this filter is blocked/never been cleaned/changed ? then the symptoms of indicator bag full light will come on you can remove and wash filter if it is gauze typ? dry and refit then try vacuuming ? or replace filter they are not expensive usually in pack of 3 in uk DO NOT RUN VAC WITHOUT THIS FILTER FITTED ! or you will have some dust in the room ? hope this helps?
