Fein Turbo II Filter

I have a Fein Turbo II vac, model 9-20-25, about 5 years old. It has a large cone-shaped filter that drops onto the lower housing before clamping the motor housing on top. I've seen it referred to as a "cloth filter"; it's like a very heavy felt material.

Does anyone know if this filter is washable? I've used it for many years without a paper bag, and have only banged the cloth filter around to get off any loose crud. I use it as a dust collector on a few of my machines, and I'm about to add a Dust Deputy. Seemed like a good time to make sure the vac is working as well as it can. New cloth filter is $80+, so I'd like to clean & continue to use this one if I can.

we run four fein turbo II with the dust deputy setups in the shop. some are connected to sanders some just for vacuuming off projects. ours were put into use in 2012. I have never replaced the filters once, but I do use the bags. I would try to blow out the filter with compressed air (outside). or replace if needed. HIGHLY suggest using the bag, as you can see it will save you filter money.....
