The porter cable vacumms are good,but they are too expensive (about $250).They only last a year for us.We use them at least 3 times a week.What we do is buy the contractors shop vac at lowes and a hose connector.The shop vac goes for about $80 and lasts as long.You lose the vacumm outlet and switch control. Just run the extra cord. Also never go with bagless, the filter will clog up in 5 minutes.The dust will be in the air.The bag prevents that from happening.
We have 2 p/cable bagged vac's and they don't perform aswell of the bagless nilfisk and it doesn't clog,it's not the cheapest tool ,but in the two years i've been using it ,it hasn't let me down,when the p/cable's finally blow up we will replace with nilfisk.
