I have a Ridgid 12 gallon/5hp vac that I use with an Oneida Dust Deputy … works great for most stuff, including my table saw. Ridgid has a ‘muffler’ that cuts down some on the noise, and doesn’t seem to effect suction.

The vac/cyclone combo doesn’t do so well with the planer or jointer, so I generally roll them out on the driveway and use them with a ProTech 750cfm portable dust collector. I have never cared much for this dust collector … the 5 micron bag doesn’t stop fine particles, and it is a PITA to setup. If I had space, I would go for a real DC and ditch the toy.
