Anything with noise reduction..
Response To:
noise? ()

David Weaver
I've had three shop vacs - first was an older shop vac brand (no noise reduction - too much noise when there are other cheap options).

The other two are the mid size fein and the older ridgid WD1450. I believe that the WD 1450 is mid 70s in terms of noised (decibels) and it's never been a noise issue for me (I'm intolerant of loud noise, don't know why - can't stand the louder shop vacs).

The fein is quieter but cost more than 3 times as much as is less good for bulk air movement at low static pressure.

I'd make sure whatever anyone gets at this point, noise reduction is part of the equation.
