I've read the reviews, and some may have merit, but in all honesty I don't see any negative to this filter. I waited to see how it performed so I could make an honest comment. The filter is fantastic, and far superior to the original old green hay-bail style filter. I noticed no reduction in suction, and couldn't tell any difference until I checked the filter after some use. What I discovered was that there a marked reduction in dust and contaminates being passed through the filter, and nothing reaching the motors, which occurred with the old style filter. It took more time to clean the new filter (I'm probably over critical in this area), but so what. My time is cheap, and if it prevents damage, and save repair or replacement. No big deal. I really never gave the filter that much thought until I read about it, and ordered one. I wish I had this filters years a go. I had no trimming issues, as one comment stated, and it fit perfectly into my MD system. As for the sewn in handle that was mentioned, why, it's not that difficult to remove once installed, but if one is sewn in, fine. Routine maintenance and cleaning is the key to keeping the vacuum system working perfectly, and this filter is an A+ bonus. Use this filter if you want to protect your motors.
We received the filter quickly. Works perfectly. Having the new filter significantly improved the system's suction.
Has a defect.
(MD Notes: We have reached out to the customer to better understand the defect. Once we have more information, we will be better able to provide a resolution.)
Big enough to cut the needed size. Would have been nice if it had a strap sewn onto middle for pulling it out when cleaning it.
Arrived in great shape. I believe the cream mesh filter will result in improved operation.
This new filter made a difference in the power. The suction was stronger.
Very helpful and quick responce
Not sure if it works better, but wanted to replace the original mesh filter. Fits like the old one.
After ordering this, I couldn't figure out if it should actually be in my AstroVac (circa 1995) so I did not use it.
Easy to trim, seems to do the job. I especially liked the information on the website since we had no idea what the filter was supposed to look like, and spent a lot of time and effort cleaning the unit (it had been used without a filter for years and was completely plugged up when we moved in) but did not know how to prevent the problem until I discovered your website.
Quality product, fast service.
Good quality, replaced our old filter setup and fit was fine.
