I have a Rigid vac that is bagless (and cannot have a bag fitted), plus a Dust Deputy from Oneida. Great for the router table, ROS and general cleanup.

It has enough power to suck the big stuff out of the planer, but you need a big container for the dust deputy to sit on. I planed 12’ x 6” boards from 3/4” to 1/2” and it filled my 5 gal bucket and the 12 gal Rigid vac bucket. I wasn’t watching it to see if it was full and when it fills up, those chips gotta go somewhere! LOL.

On the noise, when running the power tools that I used my s.v. with, I wear hearing protection, so I barely hear it.
