Dust Extractor For Tuckpointing


I am looking for a good vacuum for tuckpointing. I currently have a Bosch VAC090S but the self cleaning mechanism is a joke.... the filter gets clogged up easily and the cleaning mechanism hardly works.

Ridgid 6 hp vac with a collection bag and a dust deputy will take pretty much all of the dust that you can throw at it

how often do you need to clean the filter? Mine gets clogged up after 1 minute and self cleaning stops working

Rarely need to clean it, i can use it all day without cleaning the filter.

I have found it works best to clean the dust deputy bucket before it gets halfway full, but that is a simple to unscrew the top and dump it out

You could just add the dust deputy to your set up. That should cut way down on the filter clogging up.

Do you use a filter bag in your Bosch Vac? I have that Vac and so far have been happy with it's performance. But I don't cut mortar all day either.

These deputies are quite big... we often repoint chimneys on steep roofs, we'd rather have as few items as possible on a roof

Mine gets parked down low on the scaffold...two bosch hoses will get you 30ft...more than enough for most chimneys.

S.S. to the rescue. You did a whole thread on your set up a year or so ago.

My Milwaukee's (Re-badged Nilfisk) auto clean works great. My guys used it all day cutting out a stucco wall.. Extremely quiet as well.
