Dust Collection - Enjoy a Virtually Dust-Free Workshop Environment
Dust Collection Introduction
The Dust Collector provides an efficient and effective means to collect wood shavings and sawdust from your workshop. Unlike conventional shop vacuums, the Dust Collector is designed to collect and filter the large volume of dust and shavings produced by modern woodworking equipment. When used in conjunction with efficient dust collection chutes and attachments, the Dust Collector will help you approach dust-free woodworking.
Shop Vacuum vs Dust Collector
Heavy-duty shop vacuums are great for sweeping floors, sucking-up water and all those other general clean-up jobs round the house and garage. But they can't hold a candle to a dedicated dust collector when it comes to capturing large volumes of shavings and superfine dust from woodworking machinery. No contest!
Most shop vacuums are wet/dry units. They need a lot of static pressure to suck up nuts, bolts, water and other heavy stuff. Dust collectors, on the other hand, could care less about heavy stuff. Their job is to snatch 90+% of the dust and debris from your machinery... before it ever has a chance to get loose and become a problem.
To do that job, you need CFM (cubic-feet-per-minute)... not static pressure... and that's exactly what dust collectors deliver - in huge quantities. In fact, three times - or more CFM - than a conventional shop vacuum. When it comes to sucking-up sawdust and wood chips, dust collectors reign supreme over shop vacuums!
