Vacuum recommendation


So this weekend I tried something out that I never used before and it sold me on Kirby.

I used the Kirby turbo sander to sand joint compound. 99% of the dust went in the vacuum and it was amazingly easy.

Try that with a Dyson.

Dyson doesn't make sanders. ;-) Kirby and Rainbow out perform Dyson, no doubt in my mind.

And I like your avatar. Monitor top fridges are awesome.

Just did some more drywall sanding with the Kirby. I learned that if you tip the sander bottom up as you pull away from the wall no dust falls off.

I'll never sand by hand again. More because of the dust than the work.

Yeah, dustless technology is the way to go. The days of drywall dust piled in the floor and floating in the air are over (if we want them to be anyway).

I've been considering a Feastool purchase, though my current set ups with regular orbitals and shop vacs work pretty well.

If you are going for cost effective vacuums look for eureka/bissel ~50-70$ range and probably hoover for little more. Dyson vacuums are very solid and powerful if you like bagless (I personally don't like bagless very much). I researched a lot about vacuums and here http://vacuumconsult.com/ people suggest that canister vacuum due to its many different attachments is just better choice overall. The floors, walls, carpets, car and so on, need cleaning aswell.

What they don't tell you about the bagless is that they have filters which need regular cleaning.... at least that's true for the cheaper ones like eureka. We supply (and maintain) bagless eurekas to 71 of our kids emergency shelters, and they are a huge pain in the A$$. There are 4 different filters in each machine which ALL need cleaning (one of them about every other time you use the machine). It's a dusty mess cleaning the filters too.

Stick with bags. It's fast and easy.

That depends on the vacuum. The Dyson filter needs to be rinsed out every few months. My Hoover bagless was a huge dusty mess.
