Answer: 
Unfortunately, your WD12500 is not designed to have filter bags.

Only the RIDGID® vacuums with an intake or suction port located on the drum are capable of using filter bags.

About the Vf4000, it is available at Home Depot or you can call us at 1-800-474-3443 to place an order. If your prefer to place orders online, you can order it at www.homedepot.com and www.ridgidparts.com.

Thank you

Answer: 
We have four filters available to fit the RIDGID® WD0800.

The VF4000 is for general purpose dirt, the VF5000 is for fine dust like drywall dust or sawdust, and the VF6000 is designed for very fine filtration such as allergens, pet dander, and mold spores and VF7000 for liquid pickups.

You can buy the filters at your local Home Depot store or you can order through our Customer Service organization over the phone 1-800-4-RIDGID (1-800-474-3443) or on-line at www.ridgidparts.com using this link: http://ridgidparts.com/accessories/vacfilters.phtml.

I have a Model WD09450 vac which is still running. What filters and/or bags are compatible with this? I need to filter drywall dust, so VF5000 perhaps, plus a bag inside the bucket?
