I just bought a dewalt track saw, which is awesome, by the way, but I was at the same time trying to get some better dust collection in my garage lately. I bought a harbor freight dust collector which I haven;t been able to utilize just yet because I need some adapters for my planer, and I have to adapt my old contractor saw and old jointer to have dust collection on it, but my ridgid vacuum is super loud and I have to hook up adapters to fit the saw. I was debating getting a smaller dust collection type vac for these purposes. I have a hard time justifying the $500 price tag on the festool units and this dewalt unit caught my eye:
Are there any other solutions you’d recommend. It could even be a regular shop vac, but something fairly quiet, powerful, and will hook up to smaller tools with a longer hose? I also have one of these we use at our store that had a broken hose, and I was going to try to repurpose for smaller dust extraction needs since it’s a hepa vac with a lot of power, a long cord, and a smaller hose.
