I was after a DIY vac recently and literally spent days considering what to get.

I considered a cheap one from screwfix ( looks similar to the one posted ) but soon found out the bags were crap and kept ripping on people, even the fabric ones, I also heard the impellers has a habit of falling off and it’s irreparable

i then Considered a karcher pro vac with power take off, this looked great but I soon found they sold 100’s of different model Pro vacs and they all used unique bags which were very expensive and weren’t very available apart from amazon ( I also feared that they would stop selling the bags after a few years they had that many models to try and support ) I also found any accessories or spare parts for the karcher were very expensive.

I finally settled on a Numatic Henry wet and dry ( the exact same Model as a Charles ) this was the same price as the karcher and 2.5x the price of the screwfix one but I’d rather pay extra for something that will last, Numatics are often rated the most reliable vacuum brand, the bags are cheap, superb quality and widely available , accessories are cheap and well made, plus they are so common that you can get any spare part you’d ever want. It also came with a 3 year warranty and is made in the UK to boot.

I hope the above helps someone.

Anyone know if the power take off socket means that it turns on and off automatically as you turn the power tool on and off?

That's what power take off is supposed to do. Allegedly certain tools don't work though.

Looking at power switch in the photo, it has three positions so I'd say it does have auto start/stop.

Does the Henry come with a power socket like the other 2 you mentioned?
I recently purchased the Lidl equivalent to this when it was one of the specials and it's a decent bit of kit.

no it doesn’t come with a power take off sadly, unfortunately you have to go to the numatic industrial one for that and it costs £300-400 !

i also considered the Nilfisk range As they do have powered take off, but i found a lot of them were limited to 1000w max output ( my circular saw is 1600w ) and it seams the Nilfisk motors have a habit of burning out according to amazon reviews.

I had the motor on a Nilfisk multi 30T fail on me recently, one of the blades of the cooling fan had broken off, not checked if it was caused by a failed bearing, or had just fractured, it was about 8 years old, although only very moderate use.

Mine had a 1100 watt take off, fine for sanders, the only other thing I would liked to have been able to use it with is a router, but a 1400 watt vacuum motor plus a 1850 watt router would overload a 13a socket anyway! I did think about making a mains extension with a RF transmitter in it to plug the router into which would control the vacuum via a standard RF socket, but never got around to it.

That sounds pretty good but rig together something really useful... like a cordless extension lead.
Power takeoff and metal telescopic tube. Sounds perfect.
The Screwfix one (Titan I think) was almost unusable as it had a plastic tube.
Heated - and I may well buy one as I do a lot of sanding.
