    I do know the Bosch is quieter than any other shop vac I have (Craftsman, RIDGID, Hoover). To me that is worth the price.

    Want to add to this list Fein turbo II https://flipboard.com/@maxgoodz/top-20-best-vacuum-under-200-review-2019-r3h271n5y Very quiet.
    It doesn’t pick up water; it has a water sensor probes low in the bucket.

    I know that we are not supposed to talk about deals and such, but I couldn’t help it, just received an email from CPO, they have the Bosch 14 gallon dust extractor on sale, and new, not refurbished anyone in the market, it’s a steel at the price they are selling it at.
    It’s the previous version, not the one with the hepa filter, but hepa ready.

    Maybe that’s why they’re cheaper.

    Could be, how much does just that added hepa filter cost, hundred bucks?

    The standard is around $40 I saw up here. HEPA is $110 to $140 up here IIRC.

    Your health and clients health aren’t worth a hundred bucks? Being HEPA ready is something one can charge extra for, dust solutions are a selling point. With the additional reusable fleece bag or any of the disposeable options the filter could last for years. Use some common sense here, every precaution makes a difference….unless you don’t want to live forever 🤣

    yah thats about right, that is why i really like having the prefilter tub from oneida or which ever brand you get. It prevents a good 90 percent or so of the heavier particulates from hitting the filter.

    Don’t worry, I’m just kidding around,
    I definitely would not put my health in jeopardy. I would like to see my daughter grow up 😉

    I’m not going to live forever like some anyways. Been doing this stuff for a long time and my health is fine.. No my clinets health isn’t worth a hoot to me.. because I don’t make them sick.

    I would like to see my daughter grow up

    I saw my kids grow up and was breathing fine the whole time.

    That’s a tricky argument to make though – just because you haven’t experienced any symptoms yet (and hopefully never will!) doesn’t mean other people won’t. I know my grandma has been smoking multiple packs of cigarettes a day for the past 70 years and is still alive and kicking, but that can’t be the basis for my own decisions when scientists and analysts have surveyed hundreds of thousands of people and found that there is a definite link between smoking and cancer. Just because some people don’t get it doesn’t mean it’s a good choice or safe. Same is true with silica dust. Some people will never get sick. Everyone’s body is different. Do you really want to encourage other people to take that risk though? Especially if it’s only a small amount of extra effort overall…

    all I can say is that its definitely worth the cost in my books. I rather clean as i go instead of at the end. saves me much more time

    I don’t encourage other people to do anything, I just speak for myself.

    Except for when collecting concrete in an open plastic bag inserted, I’m using the fleece bags. Don’t want those Oneida style cyclone things. Just more of a hassle to work with.

    We’ve batted this discussion before Aaron. You’re an Oneida guy, I’m a bagger.
