Totable dust collector
If a wheeled dust collector isn’t quite portable enough for you, check out the new Festool CT SYS. This ultracompact vacuum is the same size as a medium-size Systainer, with a smaller Systainer on top that carries the hose and accessories. (Systainer is Festool’s system of stackable storage boxes.) You can sling this 15-lb. vac over your shoulder with an attached strap, freeing your hands for other tools. Despite its small size, it’s not short on features, such as full HEPA filtration, high-efficiency dust bags, and tool-triggered operation. The 67-db. CT SYS sells for $375. A five-pack of replacement bags sells for $20.
