I’m looking for some advice please. I’m buying a new portable only I can’t figure out which one is best. I’m thinking Vortex Lite,
Jaguar 8.4 or Airflex storm? Any feedback appreciated. Thanks. Frank

most of those portables have about the same specs.....
similiar pumps.......pumptech

jaguar 84 - vacs give 285 cfm, 11" lift - parallel
mytee lx - vacs give 215 cfm, 14" lift - series
rotovac 3 stage vacs - 300 cfm, 10-11" lift - parallel

pumpouts are about the same

i like the rotovac because you can separate the pump base from the vacuum tank and run 200-300' on it like a truckmount

airflex looks like european but i dont think it gives as much vacuum

It would be right up there ... two 6.6 ... the two stage 6.6 230v is now making over 700 airwatts .... i have a data pdf somewhere .
