The dust collection vacuum offers four modes of operations: regular vacuum, power tool activation, auto-clean and auto-clean with power tool activation.

Competition: FESTOOL, FLEX & PORTER CABLE
Recently the patent ran out on Porter Cable Drywall Sander 7800 ($459) which had been extremely popular because it was the only game in town. It remains a well-liked product but there were a handful of issues that the competition has looked to improve upon not only the CS Unitec Eibenstock but competition from Festool Planex ($1150) as well as Flex Giraffe ($599). All 3 of the new competitors are European based companies which makes sense because they have much higher standards for dust containment. The CS Unitec Eibenstock has put together potentially the best system which gives users better control over suction force, dust collection as well as most durable and easiest to service.
