    Nice vac tony just crazy pricetag!

    Get asked thos question almost every day! Lots of good and bad vacs out there on the market, truth is you do get what you pay for. Buy cheap and it won't last all that long under heavy usage.

    Were still waiting for our delivery of the new flex drywall vac, price is under 400 quid and. Looks very nice piece of kit with all the usual drywall vac features, will post some more info asap.

    Did have a flex vac which was the dogs! But motor went.
    Have a makita at the moment. It's not as good as the flex.
    And the colour doesn't match the flex sander. (O.C.D like things to match)
    A want the new flex sander, how about a freebie marcus.
    I'll be ordering a few spares soon. You could chuck one in with that. Forum members and all that.

    depends on your budget there are some nice hoovers out there like the hilti but for under 200 the makita is reliable.
