Very quick delivery and great price offered by PowerToolWorld.
Something potential buyers might want to know, as I did, that isn't mentioned in the description is the max. power available at the powertool takeoff socket is 1700 watts.
I've also noticed that a lot of people (again, as I was) on the lookout for adapters for dust extraction. This vacuum comes with a neat rubber attachment for the hose that will fit into and over just about all Bosch tool extraction ports. Also works with the couple of DeWalt saws I have and imagine it's pretty much universal in it's scope. As an example, the attachment will fit over the tiny port of my orbital sander and inside the extraction port my circular and mitre saws.
The vacuum can store pretty much all of it's accessories on board albeit a little precariously for the extensions.
The semi auto filter cleaner is useful and seems to work well.
Plenty of suck for the buck.
One little grip I have, though I know it's not unique to this vacuum, is if you are using the powertool takeoff socket with tools below say 800 watt (sander for example), the vacuum motor seems to run at lower power. Not sure why this is as it's fine with more demanding tools (saws for example)?
Overall, would definitely recommend.

Does everything you need as a tradesman's vac.only gripe there weren't any dust bags included for fine brick type dust and these were an additional £18.

It is about as powerful as a new Dyson but with this you do not have the concern, that after a hand full of nails and a cup of spilt tea has gone up the tube that it will not work. socket on the side is very helpful. Instructions relating to when you put a bag inside it or what bag, when could be much improved. The universal and generic sketches that Bosch are using at the moment are of no use what so ever. Good machine for most you do not need much more.
