I'm seeking some help and guidance in a soon to happen purchase...
I'd like to upgrade my vacuum cleaner mostly because my not so old
"ShopVac" doesn't seem to hold up to what I make it swallow... I've
burned 2 in the past year so I'm fed up of those cheap vacuums. They
burn even though I buy the "especially designed" bags and filters and
even though I change/wash them often.
Here's what I need: I do woodworking so I need a vacuum cleaner to
hook up to the small portable tools (I have a DC but it's hook up to
the tablesaw, planner and jointer). The problem is I do occasional
home improvement projects and I need to pick up the fine dust left
after sending a gypsum board wall or just the regular dust that can be
extremelly small. Obviously, this dust enventually ends up in the
motor and burns it.
I want something durable and that will last. Money is the least of my
concerns, I just don't want to have the feeling I'm buying something
that will break a few months later. Is there a vacuum cleaner out
there that works and performs like a Milwaukee Sawzall?
I've read some other things about stages (some have 1, 2 or 3)...
What's the advantage/disadvantages?
Thank you to who ever wants to shed some light on this dusty subject!
