    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.

    Does a decent job at a fantastic price

    Posted by Terry on 4th Feb 2015

    At first glance I would give this a 3 star rating due to build quality, but the fact that it actually works pretty well, and includes a bunch of pipe and fittings, all at a great price point point bumps it up to a cautious 5 stars...

    It's built cheaply, it is top heavy, and is certainly not a perfect cyclone as other reviewers have noted, but for $49 on sale boy am I pleased I picked one up. I should mention my 6A shop vac seems a bit much for it - actually re-compressing the hoses it came with due to all the suction - it's probably a better match for a smaller vac. And yes, if you hook it up backwards it doesn't work - check your hoses!

    Compare the cost of this to the cost of individual fittings, and even a single bag/filter replacement, and some reduced wear on your vac and it's a no-brainer as a basic starter kit...

    Just Ok

    Posted by Mastercraftdude on 3rd Apr 2014

    I didn't expect much at this low price and I didn't receive much. Don't know how anyone can say this works 'great'....it works only 'ok' for me.

    I STILL have to clean my shop-vac filter. It still gets dusty, albeit not as much. I'd say this unit collects maybe 75/80% of the dust. My craftsman 4.5 hp shop vac still gets debris slipping in. This is NOT a perfect cyclone system!
    It's flimsy...very. I had to put a couple of 5lb. weights to keep it from tipping over. It still wants to tip, but less so.
    If you need perfection, buy something else (wish I had), but I'm not certain I would got much better results with something in a similar price range...... I guess you pay or what you get.
    You do get a lot accessories with it, they are not cheap if you buy them separately, so value wise, it's not a total waste.
    Just not as good as I was hoping. *note* .. make SURE you have the shop vac hose hooked up to the correct hole. I did not and couldn't figure out why more debris was getting in the shop vac than the cyclone! ^_^

    This unit is just 'ok'.

    Works fine ,watch the static as noted.

    Posted by KB on 18th Feb 2014

    Been using mine with shopvac and an old Beam Centralvac unit i put hepa filters is and it works well , works even better now with a thein separator plate in it made out of 1/4" MDF.
    I added a wire from the bucket to a grounded screw on the central vac to stop the static zapping you and it seems to help,watch yourself if it's been running a while especially.

    Works great, holy static shocks!!

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd May 2013

    I love this thing it really works great for the sale price but man I got an amazing shock from this thing! I'm currently (no pun int.) sanding my hardwood floors and have this trailing behind me in my Rigid Vac. No 3 pronged plugs anywhere. It's been 10min and my hand is still tingling. All in all a great unit for $45 (sale).

    Work great

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Aug 2012

    Works great, in fact better than i thought.
    I have a dust collector but to use this with my CTC shop vac is great.
    Really reduced bag cleanup and for the price, this is a great buy
