"This is a sophisticated American-made product complete with multiple layers of filtration and a 12-foot wire-frame hose. It excels as collecting fine talclike dust that's produced from work such as sanding drywall. What it lacks in speed it makes up for in thoroughness, producing an essentially dust-free stream of exhaust air." - Popular Mechanics
