Emerson makes both Ridgid and Craftsman (the striped filters are identical). My 15 year old Craftsman keeps trucking despite all the drywall compound dust I’ve cleaned up with it. I have a Porter Cable HEPA vac I picked up at an estate sale and it has a lot less suction than the Craftsman. But it also was designed for a different purpose.

I’m holding off on tool purchases until the period between Black Friday and Xmas – H.D. discounts tons of stuff then as door specials and I picked up a Ridgid shop vac for $29!
