We feel that the best HEPA dust extractor of the five here is based on the fact that it delivers adequate suction power super quietly. The problem of the stiff cord is overcome by the length of the cord and hose, meaning that you can leave the unit in one place while connecting the hose between power tools without wheeling the 583492 around.
For amateur woodworkers with a limited number of power tools, the Festool – or any of these dust extractors – may be overkill, so remember to take into account your power tool arsenal before buying a dust extractor.
Some people might scoff at the thought of implementing HEPA-grade filters in a woodworker‘s dust extractor, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially when you put your health on the line for your hobby or job.
Compared to the other units, This best dust extractor performs slightly worse at keeping air flowing to the tank and bag, though it works exceedingly well at picking up small chunks of wood
Due to the Level Stop technology installed in this unit, when internal sensors detect that the tank is full, the unit will automatically shut off.
It produces about 71 decibels of noise when running at full power. Plus, the power cord can be a little too stiff so have to be extremely careful when moving the unit from place to place.
