Craftsman 16 and 32 Gal. Filter Has 10x the Filter Area
Craftsman 16 and 32 gal. vacuum filter is a pleated paper filter rather than a traditional wet-dry vacuum foam filter. Because the paper is pleated, there is 10 times more surface area than traditional filters. It is also reusable, so you can clean it and replace it, saving you money and time. All it takes is a rinse with clean water to get these filters back in working order.
The Craftsman 16 and 32 gal. filter works for 12 different wet-dry vacuum models. These are the 9-1782, 9-1786, 9-1796, 9-17904, 9-1797, 9-1798, 9-17988, 9-17877, 9-17992, 9-17993, 9-17995 and 9-17967 models. The filter itself is only 9" W x 10.25" H, so you can store extras in the garage without taking up too much space. It is also very light, weighing only 2 pounds.

I have an older shop vac which has given many years if good service and is still giving very good service. The problem is that this fine and very rugged vac takes a filter number 17809 (with an orange stripe), which is apparently no longer being offered by Sears for sale.
Now I ask you why would someone go to a Sears store rather than a ********** or *********** and buy a shop vac? Buy a shop vac of admitedly higher quality which will last many years and perhaps even be bargained for by ones children in order to have a cleaner shop. Why would one pay a premium price for a Sears product if the parts for that product were only going to be phased out in a few short years/
Doesn't make any sense to me that would would have to through out a perfectly good vac just because filters are no longer available.
Guess you know where I'm going to get my replacement.
Always liked the performance of item but not sure how much longer it will be available. Had difficult time locating. Doesn't pay to take care of equipment anymore sorry to say.

The filter worked well and it's definitely in a great condition and durable. I would highly recommend others to get it.

This is the only filter that fits my old, (pre 1988) Sears shop vac. The vac still works well and it is worth it to get a filter every few years.

we bought this shop vac when we were building our house over 30 years ago, I never thought I would find a filter to fit, this one fit perfectly. I am so happy that the shop vac still works as good as new and I can get parts for it if needed.
