[GUIDE] How-To Pair Your Concrete Equipment with the Proper Vacuum

One of the trickiest parts of choosing which vacuums you need on the job is determining which goes best with the equipment you already own, or the equipment you want to purchase. Based on voltage, water lift, amperage, etc. there are certain vacuums that are better suited to particular pieces of equipment. In order to simplify this process, below is a chart that outlines which equipment models are compatible with each Ermator vacuum and pre-separator duo. [Note: Ermator is our preferred dust extraction system.]
