dust collection.

For now I have one of them store brand lowes wet dry vacs I bought over 6 years ago. Does a good job except its starting to get a little loud so figuireing its on its last legs. I did by a cyclone unit to fit on a 31 gal steel trashcan and going to purchase another wet dry vac maybe one around the 4-6 hp range. I do have a small shop and a full size dust collection will take up alot of room. I been looking and found this one and like the price and the reviews I been finding on it and wonder if anyone has one and what are your thoughts.

Shop vacs are noisy!

Look for the quietest shop vac with the same suction power as others. At the time Rigid was among the most quiet, so I bought several at once since they were on sale at Home Depot. I like them, quiet and work great.
Read the all reviews:

There is another use for a shop vac which has a head that removes for use as a blower. The Rigids have this feature and I use mine for blowing the leaves out of the gutter with several extension pipes hooked together. I am no longer on the roof doing this core 4 or 5 times in the fall, here in Michigan.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I would be concerned with the CFM of the Stanley. A similar model 10 gallon Shop Vac w/ 6.5 HP motor moves 195 CFM, almost double that of the Stanley (100).

For perspective, I have a much smaller Shop Vac (6 gal, 4.5 HP) and it moves 170 CFM.

I have a friend with a small trim/cabinet shop. He uses a large 16 gal craftsman. It works incredibly well. It will even keep up with his Dewalt planner. I have the large ridgid for my table saw. I'm less than impressed with it, despite having more cfms than anything else out there. But, there are other factors in my situation. The craftsman vac is impressive though.

I have my Dewalt planer hooked to my big dust collector and I don't really have to turn the big dust collector on. The Dewalt planer will blow out the dust by itself.
