MikeR commented earlier today regarding yesterday’s headline comparing the combination of a $20 Craftsman auto switch and a $50 shop vacuum to Festool’s $400 dust collection vac:

“Whoa, whoa, whoa, easy there…  It takes a lot more than auto-start to compare to a Festool.  For the record, it takes twin HEPA filters with cleaner flaps, variable suction, quiet operation, an anti-static hose, air tool compatibility — not to power the tools, but that you can use Festool’s air sander and connect it to the ct22/ct33 and have it collect dust — AND auto-start, and then there’s still more…”

“You could have at least compared it to a yucky Fein vac  (Anyone want to buy a Fein mini-turbo?  The older model?)”

“Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go hump my vacuum.”
