    How big is the Midi physically? I’m starting to wish Bosch would make a smaller vac than the 9 gallon that I own. It’s fantastic vac, but a smaller version would sure be handy from time to time.

    @jponto07 think square 5 gallon shop vac. I know that is vague. It just seems the riight size for most things. We have a CT36 and I would hate to lug it around all the time.

    The midi footprint isn’t too much larger than a systainer. I think it’s around 18×16 if I remember correctly. It fits nicely under my gravity rise stand I just got rid of.

    So it’s definitely smaller than the Bosch vacs then..sounds like a perfect size really.

    The ridgids have good suction, but the filters get clogged to quickly, and the bags are expensive and seem to rip every time I try to swap them.

    I’m hoping the Bosch bags can be changed without ripping. With all of the use mine has been getting, I can’t believe I haven’t needed to change a bag yet…

    I changed my first bag today..no issues at all. It popped right off of the intake tube and out of the canister much easier than my Ridgid vac. The fact that there isn’t a big cylindrical filter protruding into the canister really helps on that front.

    So the paper bags definitely DO rip…once the bag is filled ( I know this by the change in the sound of the motor), they can be a bit difficult to remove.
