I’ve had a Fein Turbo for a few years now and love it. Recently my dad was helping on a project and really enjoyed it as well…he’s got an old 16 gal Craftsman, so it’s a big difference. His birthday is coming up and was considering getting him an upgrade, but he doesn’t need nor do I want to spend the money on a Turbo for him. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for something in between the Fein/Festool dust extractor market and the cheap shop vacs from the big box stores. His primary wants (based on what he liked about the Fein) are less noise, better mobility/not tipping, better build quality, and auto filter cleaning (if it’s possible at a reasonable price point).
I saw this Karcher on Amazon and it seems like an option, but don’t see much in the way fo reviews. Open to other suggestions as well: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BL7J5M4/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_Bt-oFbGGVP9AC
