I really wish makita would come out with a small 18v 1 gallon shop vac.

I have their little 18v dust buster looking vacuum and not much of a fan.

It has a bungee which looks good enough for me. I'm seeing a black hose and a light blue, i'm wondering if the light blue is antistatic. Honestly, I really don't see anyone but festool making a fuss out of antistatic. Would concrete naturally be more prone to static charge than wood?

I see that festool is packaging the planex with all of their vacuums for discount pricing now. Toolnut is advertising this anyway, I'm curious why they want to set people up for any potential frustration by not using an auto clean. Maybe it works fine, I don't have a planex

If your using an auto clean vac your prob sucking extra fine dust which clogs the filter. That means your gonna generate a lot of static which can destroy some tools. If your only using it on cheap tools I'm sure its fine. The other plus of the anti static hoses is dust don't stick to them and you don't get shocked.

It will work with the standard vacs but it won't take long to clog the bags then you have to shut the vac down to collapse the bag. The AC saves this hassle but also give you better suction as your not using a HEPA filter and bag that restricts suction.

Never knew they made that. I'd buy that if I could find it. Dewalt has one that would be perfect, don't want one bad enough to invest in their battery's.
I just might order it to a dealer in Windsor, go to the casinos in Detroit, cross the border and grab it.

....that hose looks like it is about to fall off....the end is far too close to the bungee, just a little slip backwards and it will be hanging off. The cord wrap on my GTS1031 suffers for a reason similar to this. The cord wrap itself is okay, but the there is no good way to holding the end in place, once it works loose, the whole thing comes loose quick. I end up having the cord dragging on the ground half the time....
