Scheppach HD2P 2 in 1 5Ltr Dust Extractor 230V
was brilliant but flawed
its first outing was to hoover up loads dust, second outing was to hoover up little bit dust but it decided to blow back on me all over customers lounge. so I had loads of work to go fetch my old vac from home that cleared up first mess
then I decided to investigate I found that the whole interior was covered in dust which was no surprise then I checked the bag (which was half full) so I thought id empty it to be sure as I wanted to keep it. well the bag zip broke when trying to undo. scheppach missed a trick here, firstly they gained one unhappy customer and 2ndly why oh why didn't they make the vac with a paper filter as the after sales could be huge...

Great bit of kit
I am a hobbyist who makes things from wood, bone, antler etc etc. A lot of the work is carving (power carving) the materials and sanding. I was looking for a compact dust extractor that would work with a mobile work station to eliminate most this dust at the source and couldn't be happier! 99% of the time it is all fine dust it is used for and seems to work great and the smaller 5L capacity isn't a problem but have also found it to work well with electric planner collecting wood chips but would expect the 5L capacity to be an issue if collecting chipping's 99% of the time. I was impressed with the delivery time, ordered on a sunday and delivered to my door tuesday morning.

Ok but no fine dust like mdf
I was pretty satisfied with this at first, especially being so compact. Have had one for about 15 months now. I soon got tired with carefully wrapping the hose into position and cut away some of the flanges to make it easier to pack away. The filter bag has quite an open weave though and there are lots of gaps in the outer casing so fine dust like plaster or mdf is likely to get blown all over the room. I also found the on/off button got temperamental after about a year's occasional use, so back to my trusty Dyson until I can afford one of the new Festool systainer types, though that has a limited power take off of only 1200W so nothing seems to be perfect quite yet!
