    Hi guys I’m in the market for a wall chaser and vac, ideally wanted the Bosch gnf65 but it’s £600+

    Now looking at a sparky one it cuts up to 40mm wide, anyone got one and is it any good?

    Also looking at the festool dust extractors anyone has any experience with them?

    I’m open to any recommendations, I like the festool dust extractors because they look to pack away neatly, I borrowed a dewalt one and it’s a right tangle when you have it in the van!

    Cheers

    As mentioned above .I have the Titan wall chaser from screwfix, my previous one was stolen from the van.
    Can't fault the titan one. makes nice cuts for housbashing. Its just as good if not better than chasers many times more expensive, also has a no quibble warranty from screwfix with it.If you want really wide cuts then overlap and make 4 lines instead of 2. attached it to the titan wet/dry vacuum and have very little dust. the titan vacuum is a powerful machine in its own right mind.

    I've used a Metabo wall chaser/hoover, and hired a few other manufacturers products and one the hire shop 'made up' with a Henry Hoover. The only one I was impressed with was the Metabo; the others simply didn't 'suck up' enough of the dust & debris. Plus some, the actual chaser was a bit unwieldy.

    The Metabo was a good chaser & almost zero dust. I don't do enough chasing to warrant the expense, so its down to me £30 4'' angle grinder, and half hours down time, waiting for the dust to settle and good dust mask o_O

    I have a 110V Metabo tracker/chaser and hoover with power take-off combo. As above, very good - very little dust.

    I use a 4.5” Bosch grinder with the Bosch dust extraction guard connected to a fein dustex extractor (class L) very little dust from it.
    Not a fan of the twin blade ones - make a right mess.

    Erbaurer twinblade grinder and Nilfisk Aero 26-21 Vac is what I use what my helper uses. Very little dust (until the Kango/Wall Chipper comes out) Can get them for approx £250 all in.

    If I'm doing a new build or the likes, I bring in a wall tracking company, they seem to all use Hilti.

    Got the Festool CTL Midi. Use it with router, rail saw, chop saw, does a great job. Only down side is cost - initial and bags. But it does pack the bags though.

    I use a Titan wall chaser with a Henry vac. Works a treat in unoccupied houses. However I find the extraction vent gets blocked very easily by a piece of loose plaster or paint and the room soon fills up with dust!

    I borrow a Makita wall chaser and vac for occupied places and the extraction is so much better
