Shop Vac Bag

Good day,

I am looking to buy shop vac replacement bag. I own the Rigid for 6/7 years now and I just exhaust the two bags that come with the unit.

I see there is off-brand bag, are they good enough? or just stick with Rigid?

Thanks.

AMAZON.

I still have a dinosaur vacuum cleaner that uses a bag ... 1988 Kenmore Powermate 840 Canister Vacuum (30+ Year Old Vacuum Cleaner)!.

When Sears closed down ... I couldn't find any more OEM bags. Only had one more new original bag ... so I emptied the existing one inside and re-used it for a second year.

Then found the replacement bags (universal) at Canadian Tire ... purchased one package of 3 bags. Worked great.

Wasn't happy of the cost at Canadian Tire ... then found a way better deal on Amazon. Purchased that package of 15 bags. Tried it. Worked well.

So now .. as long as the motor keeps holding up .. and changing bags once a year (if it is full) ... it could probably last another decade or so.

Mainly use this vacuum cleaner in the basement and garage (especially when working with wood cutting) and vacuuming the inside of the car. For the rest of the carpeted areas and ceramic flooring in the house, we use the Tineco A11 Master+ that we purchased in November 2020 from Amazon on sale.

I've bought bags for my Rigid vac from this third party seller on Amazon. Good quality bags - ships from the States but I've never had extra duties added.

Rigid is Home Depot. Just get whatever shop vac bag they have that fits your vacuums gallon size.

Thanks for pointing out Crucial. Unfortunately, they do not have my model (VF3502).
