I'm considering the purchase of one of these to use
as my general shop vac- not so much as a dust collector
for other machines.
(The motor on my *20 yr old*
shop vac was emmitting
sparks and smoke the other day. I smacked it around
and it is functioning for now, but its days are numbered.)
I have read all the sales lit. and am aware of all
the great selling points, but I still have two concerns.
Can anyone who actually uses this machine
please comment on:
1. Is the Festool CT-22 really strong enough (enough
suckage) for general shop clean up chores ?
2. Are the recommended paper-bag-liner-filters a
blessing or a curse ? A pain in the neck to order and
have on hand ? What about 10 yrs down the line
(should the machine last that long), will they be
These are my main concerns (besides the cost), but
any other comments would be appreciated also.
