Fein Shop Vac

Has anyone actually purchased the Fein Turbo 1 or 2". Are they worth the extra cash? Looking for something quieter and more powerful than my screamer shop vac. The db rating they show are the lowest i have seen. From what I can tell the one with the HEPA filter will clog quickly do to the size of the actual HEPA filter.

Thanks Steve

a cyclone attachment might spare the filter. However, cyclones do slightly rob you of suction power.

True, there is some “overhead” lost when using a cyclone, but the suction is consistent. The loss doesn’t increase as the filter clogs up as it would without a cyclone.
