The systainer mounting on the vacs is of more benefit to the tradesman/woman that needs to be mobile. In a shop environment, there really isn't much need for it IMO.
Uhm, a Drawer Systainer / Sortainer (or two) works nicely under a CT mounted cyclone to store, oh, cleaning accessories, etc. Of course, you will need a longer hose to connect the CT and cyclone.

It always makes me feel smarter to agree with Okami, but in my shop use of the domino and vac I have never had use for stacking systainers on the vac. I stack systainers under the bench like cordwood for foot rests, mostly. Only about half of them are useful in the shop, for me.

I watched a couple of those videos that PaulG linked and they're very good, well after you get past the opening music.

I wish he would have done another couple tests on the Dust Deputy; that would be when the bag was getting full in normal mode and when the DD was getting full, I would bet the DD pulls more vacuum than the straight Festool when the bag isn't new.

My thoughts and see if they make sense is that the domino makes a lot of bigger chips so the DD would really be useful in that application, otherwise I bet the bag fills rapidly.

If You had a lot of mortices to plunge, the chips would build up in the bag. The domino's dust collection with a vac hooked up is very good.
If You plan to use a vac hooked up to a router, the DD is a sound investment. When I use my Leigh FMT jig, and start banging out the mortice & tenons, I can fill a bag in no time at all.

I originally got my DD/shop vac set up for sanding drywall at a house remodel. Without the DD the filters choked quickly on the fine dust but with the DD it captured about 20 gals or more of drywall dust and in all maybe a cups worth of dust got to the shop vac. I use my CT mainly with the track saw, domino, biscuits and wood sanding, and with those uses I don't experience a dramatic loss of suction as the bag fills. No doubt there is some loss but nothing like happened when sanding drywall.

I really LOVE my Ultimate DD. It's paid for itself in vacuum bags. When the bag does fill, the system loses suction rather suddenly - just like when the DD isn't there.

I'm not sure the Domino makes big chips. Its basically a router and if you move it slowly, it makes dust instead of chips.

Has anyone seen dust collected from just a Domino?

So far, I've just thrown the full bags away. I will have to dissect the one now in my Midi. As I was cleaning up my dovetail jig the other day, I saw that I sucked up a couple of machine screws that had come loose from it before I could stop the hose. I'll plunge a few mortices before I proceed with the surgery and attempt to do a forensic analysis of the sedimentary layers as I search for the screws.

Yes, that's exactly my set-up as some here might remember Corwin helping me a few years back with the odds and ends of Classic Systainers and the then-new T-Locs.
I have a 'First-Aid' Sortainer mounted on my Auto-36 Vac and my Oneida DD mounted on the Sortainer. I use the 50mm boom arm hose from Festool since it's anti-static and the perfect length for my set-up between the Cyclone and the Vac.

Alex, make sure to wear a mask when you do surgery on the bag.
