    Great considering the price, but…

    The ports are oversized, even for the supplied fittings. You must enlarge your fittings with tape to ensure a reasonable fit. You will also have to add a weight or suspend the hoses in order to prevent it from falling over, even from the vac starting up and collapsing he hose length. Otherwise it works great. Maybe by adding elbows to the ports would help with the tipping problem.

    Good idea

    easier then always empty the shop vac and it would probably last longer

    Dust cyclone works as advertized. I've had 5" of sawdust in the canister, with very little going into the shop vac.

    Like other reviewers, I found the unit to be top heavy, and tended to tip over. I removed the casters, and bolted it onto a piece of melamine shelving cut an inch bigger than the base. Works great now.

    Dust Cyclone Kit Mini Blue Tornado

    Posted by Ludo on 24th Aug 2021

    It is a great kit for beginners who want to see how the cyclone system works. And it works perfect with a beaten shopvac I've had for many years. It takes care of most sawdust produced by a table saw or a router. The only thing I am not very happy with is the stability of the bucket: those coasters are not ideal, when you drag the bucket across the floor it stumbles. That's why I am giving it four stars only. Other than that, it is very good: good hoses, good adapters, good design.

    This thing is amazing. It sucks all the dust out of my bandsaw so I no longer have to worry about it getting gummed up.

    waste of money

    Posted by glenn.ryzebol@gmail.com on 28th Mar 2020

    Just don`t even bother. I used a brand new shop vac and this thing captured half the dust at most! After just a couple times emptying the lid was nearly impossible to snap on. I had to make my own adaptors. The hoses were not compatbile with my mastercraft shop vac. And , finally, I was trying to get the lid to snap on by bumping my fist on the lid. Big mistake. the whole bucket just shattered.Avoid this kit.

    Tornado Dust Collection System

    Posted by Robin on 6th Mar 2019

    I've had the tornado for a few months now and initially LOVED it. The trouble I'm having now is once you empty it several times, it gets harder to snap the lid on and when you exert pressure to ensure the lid is snapped on, the wheels break off. That is the reason i am only giving it 3 stars. If you're a newbie and looking for entry level collection, this will do the trick. Make concessions for the lid issues and perhaps remove the wheels.

    Works great, expect to buy new hoses

    Posted by Devin C. on 10th Aug 2017

    As noted it is top heavy, but that's not the end of the world. I personally think it works perfectly for a small shop. If you don't need a full dust collection system this is for you. Hardly anything is making it to my shop vac! I would to see them either give a better rating for the size of shop vac needed or stop shipping with hose that compress back together. Anytime i turn my shop vac on it re-compresses the hose, severely limiting the maneuverability and distance accessible. Over all for the price point it is fantastic, but I am disappointed that I need to spend more money to replace the hoses.
