New makita dust collector

Looks like a rebadged Nilfisk Attix 44.  Tool Nut has it for $618 and I believe it includes the systainer/l-boxx adapter.

The dB rating is better than the Festool's. Even the CFM rating is slightly better. If I were to look for a new dust extractor, I'd consider it along with, say, a CT26.

It’s a rebranded Nilfisk, I own a Nilfisk and it’s a great vac but I also have a Metabo autoclean vac and it’s the best vac I’ve ever owned.  I own several Festool vacs and the Metabo is by far the best.  It uses a dual filter set up and with the autoclean feature there’s no need for bags.

I have had this vac for about 18 months, and it's fantastic. Only difference I can see is the Australian model has three dials - the hose diameter selector isn't on the one in the link.
It's a big unit, not ideal for mobile use - though I bought the steel handle and that helps move it around. The hose and accessories are first rate as well.

It’s a Starmix.  They are indeed lovely.
