the filter pleats may occur from installation
but creases will not affect the performance
of the filter.

filter cage, remove filter plate and lift off
CAUTION: To avoid damage to the
blower wheel, always
using the vac for dry

accomplished without removing the filter
from the vac by slapping your hand on
top of the lidwhile the vac is off.

dry debris by gently tapping the filter
against the inside wall of your dust drum
and the debris will loosen and fall,
NOTE: For best results of cleaning due to
dust, clean the filter in an
open area. Cleaning

3. For thorough cleaning of dry filter with
fine dust (no debris) you may run water
it as described
After filter is removed, a wet filter should be
cleaned by running water through it from a
hose or spigot.
Take care that

enough to damage filter.
IMPORTANT: You can quickly dry the filter
by running the vac without the hose
assembly attached for approximately 10
minutes with filter in place to speed up
drying. Check the filter for tears or small
holes. Even a small hole can cause a lot of
dust to come out of your vac. Do not use a
filter with holes or tears in it. Replace it
Your filter should be cleaned often to
maintain peak vac performance.
Be sure to dry the filter before
storing or picking up dry debris.
