OK, I bought this from the store that sells them. They shipped it right to my door.
This unit takes the upgraded filters, up to and including HEPA filters. I recommend the green one. I believe it comes with the blue fine dust one, which I never used, put in the green one before I turned it on.
This unit also accepts dust bags. ****This is the best feature for a dust collector ever.****
If you want to vacuum up dust from a wood shop, I would get a cyclone separator, I use the dust deputy.
It's cheap, and it works.
OK, I have this setup, the dust deputy separates the wood dust first, then whatever .01% makes it thru the dust deputy goes in the bag.
The bag protects the hepa filter, and the hepa filter protects YOU from breathing the ultrafine dust particles that make it thru the bag.
The only time I have to replace the disposable bag is when I let the dust deputy get full, and it bypasses and fills the bag.
Even when this happens, you NEVER lose suction, because the hepa filter never sees the dust.
The main reasons the motor would stop working is if you let the filter plug up, and the motor doesn't get enough air to cool itself, and burns up.
This is prevented by using the setup I mentioned.
This model is fairly quiet for a vac, and it runs for hours at a time as my dust collector in the woodshop, and to clean up after projects.
This is by far the best vac I have ever owned.

Even if you don't get this model, (I can't recommend this one highly enough.), at least make sure you get one that CAN ACCEPT DUST BAGS.

I bought this shop vac vacuum about two months ago (somewhere else). I use it for dust control when grinding & cutting concrete for repair. It's important to maintain a high air flow rate, yet continue to operate in a fine dust environment.

This vacuum works well. I have run it nearly continuously for six hours, only stopping once to clean out the filter and empty the case. It moves a LOT of air, and is relatively quiet compared to other shop vacs, yet is easy to move around. All in all, I'm quite pleased with it.

Lots of reviews on suction etc., but onboard tool storage was not well thought out. You can make it very useful with a couple mods.
First, there are two spots at the base of vac by the large wheels, labeled hose storage. They're designed with two different diameters, one to grab the large end of the extension wands, and one to grab the ends of the hose. Well if you want to store your wands that leaves the narrow ends pointing up, which won't allow you to then attach the hose ends at the top of the wands. So you're stuck with storage either for your wands, or your hose, but not both. To fix this, I attached a hose coupler, just a short section of stiff tube, to the hose storage things, with a small self tapping screw. This allows you to stick the narrow ends of the wands facing down, and secure your hose ends to the wider wand end at the top.
Next, the little canvas bag on the handle is inadequate. It's large enough, barely, to hold all the nozzles the vac comes with, but who doesn't buy every accessory they can? Even just with the included nozzles, the storage bag doesn't close in any way, so all your nozzles will fall out if the vac is jostled in the back of a truck.
What I did was take two of the Husky 9 in. utility bags and replaced the included storage bag. To do this, first remove the little plastic tabs at the ends of the drawstring, pull the ends through the outer grommet and reattach the tabs, this leaves you a great premade hole to bolt the bags onto the handle. and to each other. I drilled a hole in the side of the handle, right in the middle of the bend, then with a couple of bolts and washers attached each bag to the inner corners of the handle. Then I attached the bags to each other using a short bolt through the grommet holes on the other side of the bags.

This vac replaces a Charles commercial vac that I've had in my shop since the late 1980's. The Charles was good but it had it's limitations. I will use the Charles as a reference in my comparison to the Ridgid. The Charles is commercial vac about 3 gallons in size with a long 1 5/8"? diameter hose with metal extension and a variety of fittings that must be stored separately. The motor housing looks like it's made out of good quality plastic and the bucket is made out of fiberglass. It has a strong not necessarily quiet motor with a simple filter system that really doesn't work well for fine particles such as drywall dust. It was built to last and still works fine.

I do a lot of home reno projects and have a fully equipped shop that I do a variety of projects. My Charles is one of my most used tools in my shop as well as on home reno projects. Over the years, I found that the Charles took up a lot of space as it has a long hose and cord that had to be coiled around or under the vac. I also had to be careful about not pulling the vac over as the wheel base was too narrow for the weight and height of the vac. And, I always had to store the metal hose extension and fittings in a corner separate from the vac.

When I started looking at shop vacs, I knew that I wanted a larger size, a better and more stable wheel platform that allowed the vac to stay upright without tipping over from being pulled around, and a good strong motor and filter system that allows the vac to suck up a variety of material without clogging. I quickly settled on Ridgid vacs due to the many positive customer reviews both on the Amazon and HD site.
