Hello all! I’m looking for a shop vac for attaching to a sander and circular saw (one at a time) for dust collection, and also for cleaning up the shop and the car. So it doesn’t need a very large capacity. I’d like it to be quiet-ish, if possible.
So far I’m looking at the 4 and 4.5 gallon Ridgids, both the roll-around and the lunchbox styles. They come in either 5 or 6 horsepower, which seems pretty powerful but you never know. They sell a muffler/diffuser that goes on the output, to reduce noise, and I’d probably try that.
Do any of you use these for dust collection or cleanup? What do you like about them, and what do not like?
