    I have never used the paper bags in any of our hoovers & had no probs. with vacs or sanders due to dust!

    But I do put in a Makita dust bag of a old saw bench this is ratchet tied to the inlet & emptied via
    the large zip on the bottom,

    We do blow out the filters with a airline, prob once a month.

    Hoover bags are a waste of money, better of without erm, the makita has a nylon filter so i wouldnt bother with bags, and the hilti filters are indestructible.

    We see soooooo many knackered vacs that don't use bags, think the key is to empty the vac before it gets above half full as too much dust in the motor heats it up and kills it in no time.

    Blowing the filters out as captain says makes huge difference to the life of the vac motor

    the bags that came with my festool hoover are just like bin liners that roll over the top so they aren't actually stopping the dust getting to the filter, they seem a complete waste of time. Surely the idea of the bag is to be sealed so it keeps the dust inside!! do i need to buy different bags???
    these are the ones with it but they do sell the paper ones at a ridiculous price just wandering if i really need them??

    I know the one you mean,

    You could just as well stick in a heavy duty bin liner & poke a hole in the side.

    I think they come in rolls of 50

    Ive ruined a makita in no time by using it without a bag! Got a bosch one now but the bags are 8 and they rip every time you empty them.

    The filter on this one seems better than the makita though.

    i used a bosch gas 50 for six years before i had the festool and i never used a bag once, it was a crackin hoover.
    These festool bags are the same as if you didn't have a bag in though thats what i dont understand they just seem a waste of time

    If its a small hoover just empty it every few rooms and it should not be a problem, when the bags splits the hoovers full of dust anyway.

    I use a Loveless hoover which has paper/cloth type bags at around 6 each from the states, they can be emptied carefully but after a few plots of emptying them they start to become useless, what I have done now is cut the bottom approx 6inches and used self adhesive velcro to keep it closed, this makes for very easy emptying and makes the bag last a lot longer. You could try it with the Festool bags?

    Will have a look see what price i can get the cloth bags for makita vac for Raymond and will check with bosch about your bags chris.

    Regarding the festool bags the paper bags are best suited for fine ames dust, which kills vacs after a time if not contained.

    The plastic bag shipped with the vac - we used to remove this because its confusing for everyone as mentioned it still allows dust to get to filter which is pointless.

    They are designed for wood collection really.

    Best price we can do on the paper bags for 5 pack = 22.50 + vat whiich should be competitive.

    Low on stock only few packs but if few people interested we may be able to bulk buy and get better discount let me know.

    ps - Saleen - think i might have a loveless bag in stock if you want it for peanuts - will have a look and pm you later
