Re: Vacuum Shootout


Here's a decent review of this vac. I think the best surprise is the hose.

The packout system isn't too heavy for him for some reason.

That's an easy one. That's why I bought two wheeled units vs. one stacked unit.

I fill my Dewally wheeled box and it weighs about 60 lbs. I don't have a ramp into the back of the pickup.

Neither do I. I fill both those. Not sure what the question is.

Re: Vacuum Shootout


The Dewalt are cheap **** in comparison. They don't hold as much and the attachment system is stupid. That's for the tough system anyway. I like these much better. Especially the way they attach. I carry one each of these boxes on the wheeled carts. Neither are too heavy. The Dewalt system I had needed to be loaded off the cart to load into the truck. These Milwaukee I can pull them up with no issues.

Re: Vacuum Shootout


I deal with too many stairs and in/out for those boxes. Even the lighter competition is sometimes a drag, so I end up filling tray totes and taking what I need for the day.

I leave my tools in the backyard of most my jobs. We roll out in phases and roll up in phases.

There's certainly differences in conditions. Especially with different trades.

Re: Vacuum Shootout


Hey Guys. Yanni here. Been long time and dam Busy. I personally bought and reviewed all of them. The sleeper and winner winner chicken dinner is Fein auto Clean. Absolute beasts. Sold off festi AC an one if my midi's. Hands down best value overall. I specifically git the Auto Clean for masonry grinding/ polishing and the occasional drywall patch work that needs some sanding. If you don't do any of that then just get the non AC. The rack holds sys boxes and tstaks very firmly without out and latching. Feel free to reach out for More Picts/ info.

Happy New Year to you allhttps://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5a566bfdbc7f0/KVID0953.mp4https://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5a566c52d11f9/KVID0551.mp4

I'm busier than a one legged ass kicker! Just started a 60k deck today. It's a stickler especially the staircase.

Good to see you back Yanni

Not quite on the rooftop, but I was working in your hood awhile back and couldn't help being on the lookout for that citydecks logo.

I'm sure you recognize this place...

BTW...you ever try a dust deputy for the masonry dust? I'll never be without one these days. Exterior work for cutting mortar, I use the cheaper ridgid units with a DD...interior I like the Nilfisk...Don't need to convince me that Fein is fantastic as well!

Hey my Man. Thanks for tapping in.
Yes I have dd it mostly sure in Shop fir miter saw / table saw planer etc. If room / space allows I'll take out in field for masonry work. Works excellent. But I find it only last about 30-45 min straight if vac is nit Auto Clean. Either one or both filters will have to cleaned every 30-45min. The Auto Clean festi and Fein ac do not clog and that makes it a dream in the field especially in tight city spaces.

I've got a Fein, midi, and that Milwaukee (Re-branded Nilfisk) the Milwaukee has auto clean. That's my favorite.
