  • Shop Vac / Sawdust Collection

    Any thoughts or comparisons between the Fein Turbo Vac II and a comparible Ridgid shop vac?

    Price i'm sure will be a consideration. I believe the Fein is about $229/239 or so.

    One thing I'm not seeing is how to use a Ridgid vac for dust collection. None seem to have any electrical receptacles for a tool actuated auto-on/off feature. Is this do-able?

    Also, what dust collection accessories are available for the TS-2400 and the MS-1060?

    TIA

    A Ridgid will suck a Fein up it's hose.

    Sorry, couldn't resist that. Ridgid does have a lot more oomph to it, but at the cost of sounding like a 747 taking off. I have a 12 gallon model (rated at about 4,000 vacuum hp, I think ), and use a Fein Turbo II and a Mini when I clean up after my classes. The Fein is quieter than my wife's Hoover house vacuum.

    Tradeoffs, everything is tradeoffs.
