Dustless Wet/Dry Vac?
 
Anyone have suggestions for the best dust free wet/dry vac? I have always been a shop vac fan, but recently someone was telling me about a wet/dry vac made by dustless technologies. Anyone tried one, what do you think? It's about time for me to invest in a new one.

What is it your trying to do with it that you need it to be duct less?
What I did was use a Ridgid brand shop vac and use the Hepa filters and attach a hose to the discharge hose to the exhost port and hang it out the winodw. Saved me about $300.00 of a dust free vac.

I am about to be taking on a project of remodeling and resanding some kitchen and exterior cabinets. I am going to block some of the area off but wanted the best possible vac at getting all the dust and wood debri.

I have an old shop vac but it doesn't really seem to keep the dust in the vac, the dust just seems to go everywhere when I turn it on.

I have a Dustless, true HEPA and was the only one approved by EPA for lead RRP, probably more now. It is inexpensive compared to others. The bags are not inexpensive.

Thanks for your feedback! Yes, this is the only thing that is so neat about that vac is that compared to other vacs they are not EPA RRP certified, I think I am leaning heavily toward this one! It seems to be the most cost effective I have found. The bags seem to be around $50 more but that is worth it if the vac is good.
