Metabo Dust Extractor Review ASR 35 ACP HEPA
The dust extractors are often used in different ways. They may be used for cleaning or they may be used for other purposes such as dust collection or dust removal.
There are several types of dust extractors available today including: Festool, Makita, Meguiars and others. All of them have their advantages and disadvantages. One thing which all dust extractors have in common is that they remove dust from your home. You can use these machines to clean up around the house, inside your home or even outside your home. However, there are some drawbacks associated with using a dust collector for any purpose except dust collection purposes.
Dust Collector Reviews – Festool vs Makita
Festool and Makita are two companies which manufacture dust collectors for residential use. Both of these companies make dust collectors for various uses.
Festool makes dust collectors for general household use while Makita manufactures dust collectors for commercial applications. Some of the things which you will find in the reviews of Festool and Makita dust collectors include:
Price Range – Most dust collector manufacturers offer a wide range of prices. For example, you can get a Festool DuraMax for $199.99 (as reviewed here) and a Makita M10 for $149.99.
The price difference is usually due to features. For example, the Makita does not come with an auto-start feature. You have to manually turn it on and off. The DuraMax has a large collection bag which can be quickly removed and replaced. The Makita bag is slightly smaller but has wheels so you do not have to lift it when removing or replacing it.
Vibration Isolation – Both of these dust collectors have vibration isolation systems. The primary use of this type of technology is to prevent the dust collector from vibrating.
Normally, these collectors vibrate when they are operating. If you put some vibration isolation material under them the vibration is greatly reduced.
Ease Of Use – The DuraMax and the M10 are both easy to use. They have similar features and you do not need any special training to learn how to operate them.
Durability – Both of these dust collectors are known to be durable. You may have to replace the filter bags on a regular basis but that is normal with any dust collector.
Bags vs Bagless Systems – All Festool dust collectors come with bags. This is one of the reasons why they are more expensive than some other collectors.
Makita only manufactures bagless dust collectors.
Filter Cartridges – You can easily replace the filter cartridge in most Festool collectors. You will not need any tools to perform this task.
The M12 use a screw on cartridge and the DSRVJ uses a push in cartridge.
Noise – These dust collectors normally run quietly. Most of them have sound levels below 90 decibels.
This is quieter than most shop vacuums.
