Fantastic unit for the price
on 12 April 2014
Having spent 3 months working on numerous carpentry projects I became sick and tired of my £40 argos vacuum. The tiny capacity meant emptying the unit 2 or 3 times in a single use, and the filter was constantly clogging up with sawdust. Evidently using a domestic vacuum for industrial use just wasn't working out.
"How much better can a £90 vacuum from SIP be?" I wondered. Much better as it turned out.
Firstly the unit is grey not black as per the picture, but that didn't matter. The cylinder while not physically huge stores a huge amount of waste, and the large 100mm hose will ensure it'll never get clogged up.
To my surprise the unit comes not only with the 5 piece adapters (which fit everything i've tried to plug into it) but also the filter and 5 vacuum bags to keep the dust out of the filter. So far this setup seems very effective and the vacuum hasn't lost any suction in the few days I've used it.
Better still, I can plug in the vacuum attachment from my old argos unit and use it as a traditional vacuum and that really shows that this is a far better quality unit.
For the price, you can't go wrong. If you're even an occasional woodworker or hobbyist, this will help to keep away all the dust nicely.
