The newer models feature filter shakers, variable speed, and tool activated powerup. The Bosch rated tops in a recent FWW review.
But what do I know, I use a mini Ridgid on my chop saw and a 6.5 hp Ridgid on my router table. Both tools scream as loud as the vacuum, so a quiet vac wouldn’t help me much. You can plug any shop vac into a tool activated switch for about $30.
I would rather have 2 or 3 cheap vacs that can be dedicated to smaller tools around the shop.
Good luck with your search.
