Great!Great little vacuum. Much more suction than my Makita vacuum and fitted with the optional HEPA filter keeps the nasty stuff out of my lungs. Usually hooked up to my bandsaw which goes on and off about 10 times a day Mon- Fri but also use for my hand sander, track saw, router and electric planer. Nice sized hose so takes chippings from hand planer and router no problem. It does run on for about 5 seconds after you switch it off to clear the hose (can get a bit annoying...) Had it for about a year and a half now, I'd have no hesitation recommending it or buying another one if required.

Good kitHave owned the 25litre for around 18months now. All going well. Very generous length of hose. It's permanently connected to the Kapex chop saw so isn't under constant use as are the festool midis in the workshop but sometimes it gets a fair work-out with the auto start function used repeatedly. The extraction stays on for a fair while after tool is turned off. In som ways this is good for clearing the air and hose. But might get annoying on smaller tool use. It might just be my machine. I keep meaning to find out from someone with a similar extractor.

Very disappointingI owned on of these, it broke down in the first week of use and I put it in my garage, meaning to get it fixed. A year or so later, I tidied up the garage and there was the machine, out of guarantee. Oh dear. I returned it to the shop, they wanted to replace all the electrics including the motor for about £300! I explained the situation, to no avail.... The rep couldn't even offer me a decent discount on a new unit.
