That looks like a good deal.

Now which vac to buy? I was considering the Milwaukee 8960-20 due to the reviews posted a while ago. But this Bosch is significantly less expensive.

Any opinions/comparisons on these two?

My beef with the Bosch is the size. The Milwaukee is on the bigger side but the Bosch is jimungus.

Hmm, as best as I can find searching the sites is they are about the same size.

Milwaukee 8960 =
Quote:
26.2 x 15.2 x 31.5 in
Bosch Vac090AH =
Quote:
20.5 x 14.5 x 22.6 in
But I found one site that claimed the Bosch was 29" tall.

I'm leaning toward the Bosch just for the fact that they have very similar specs, and it is $150 less than the Milwaukee so I can get a longer hose and some bags and still be less out of pocket.

Thanks DaVinci, I have read probably 1/2 a dozen different reviews and they are so close in specs I don't know if it would make a difference in real world usage.

Agreed. My needs are different than others. My priorities are:

1. Less than 21 in height (needs to fit under my truck bed cover).
2. Power (needs to work well with miter saws).
3. Noise (loud units piss me off).

Re: Dust Extractor Question


I agree with you on the noise, at it's loudest the Bosch is about 5 decibels louder than the Milwaukee, at it's quietest about 1 decibel louder.

Currently I'm using a regular shop van on my palm sander and other small tools but its running the vac hard. Sounds like the hose is clogged but just the negative air pressure.

My Priorities
1. That it lasts 3 years
2. Suction dial
2. Square design to maximize storage space

Going to be comparing the warranties tonight. Havnt gone deep in to them yet but from a glance, Bosch 1 year then sol. Dewalt 1 year, then limited for 2 then sol. Milwaukee 5 years .

Milwaukee Dust Extractor Specs
Model: Milwaukee 8960-20
Motor: 12 amps total (7.4 vac only)
CFM: 148
Tested Water Lift: 70.50″
Capacity: 8 gal
Hose Length: 13′
Cord Length: 22′
Price: $599
Warranty: 3 years
It looks like a 3 year warranty, not 5.

I went on ahead an ordered the Bosch. Amazon will have it here Thursday.
For $150 less I'll risk it. It can't be all that bad after reading all the comps and reviews.
Very competitive that dust extractor business.

I know the Festool seems to be the bench mark but the Bosch has a larger capacity. I'm not stuck on either brand so if anybody has more suggestions I'm all ears.

I'm judging by what I saw at my lumberyard. The Bosch was very tall.

My Milwaukee holds Systainers. I purchased the attachment. It also holds LL-boxes. Although I don't use the l-boxes.

My Fein is the more powerful of the three I own. It's dedicated to the miter saw.

Correct. Just in case he has tstaks. There 3 to 1 in cost with sys. I only have handful of festi tools so they typically come and stay in sys. They almost exclusively get used with midi.

Re: Dust Extractor Question


One other thought is "Remote, Remote Control!" Something the Festool does offer as an accessory. I keep the Bluetooth remote near the end of the D36mm hose, and wouldn't know what to do without it anymore. So nice to grab the end of the hose and turn the vac on for a quick suck, then shut it right back off.

QUIET! Probably one of the other more important features to me. Anything that is 5db louder than another vac...errr dust collector is out.
