The 6.5 hp Ridgid is a powerful motor. I made my kids a hovercraft with one. They are extremely noisy. The filters quickly clog when cleaning up sawdust.
I use a 6.5 hp for my router table. It works great in that application, because the router is loud too…so no big deal. I run a smaller ridgid vac on my miter saw. Everything else hooks up to the dust collector.
Look for Black Friday deals on the vac. Most years the Ridgid vac is on sale.
