Wise Buys: Tool-triggered Vacuums

Porter-Cable 7812

Porter-Cable 7812

Capacity: 10 gallons
Hose: 1-1/2" x 13'
Tool Amps: 6; Noise Level: 75 dB

Editor test-drive:
I've used Porter-Cable's older model #7810 for years for general shop cleanup and drywall sanding, and the newer model #7812 performs even better. Weighing only 20 lbs., it has all the suction I need to collect dust from my portable power tools. The oversize rear wheels make it stable, and it glides easily around my shop without tipping. The 7812 comes with a cartridge filter and one collection bag. It features a spring-loaded "finger" on the outside that when you pull, drags across the filter and knocks off most of the dust without opening the hood. I had no trouble connecting the hose to my Porter-Cable tools, but mixed luck with other brands.
