It doesn't. I run mine without a bag even though one came with it.

How loud is it during operation - how many decibels?

Asked by: BobC
I used a iPad app (so who knows how accurate it is) and it measured the vacuum at about 73 decibels. I means nothing to me as when I use it the tool I am using is usually louder and I wear ear protection.

Is there any difference between this and the 16 gallon?

I want the highest wuality but dont need that big of a tank for my application.
Asked by: Angel
Hello Angel, Thanks for asking! If the 16-gallon in question is our HD1600 that also has the same feature wherein the top is detachable, the only difference is the gallon size. Also, this 12-gallon comes with a filter bag while the 16-gallon doesn't come with one, but you could buy the bag separately. If you have any other questions, you may call our Customer Service at 1-800-474-3443 from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central Time and we'll be glad to assist you. Thanks, RIDGID
