DeWalt Dust Extractors

Postby Crispylettuce » 16 Nov 2016, 13:15

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with DeWalt Dust extractors?

I have been fortunate to be offered a bit of a discount, and wondering if it works be a good buy?

I currently use a small hover - which didn't really cut the mustard!

Although I'm planning on building a workshop next year (delayed from this year!), I don't plan on installing a fixed extraction system, so am looking for a portable one that can be used in the shop and around the house during renovations.

Alternatively, can anyone recommend anything else instead?

Many thanks, Chris

I read that the ALDIDL offerings are well thought of and not too much money. Downside is waiting for the offers to come round.

Is it a dust extractor or a chip collector ? Depends on what machines you are wanting to extract from.

Rutlands have a portable one at the moment at £19!
No idea if it's any good though.

Check out the reviews on this vac. The filter seems to block when used for ash and so could be a problem with fine sawdust/sanding dust too.
Combining "incredibly cheap" with "Rutlands" normally rings alarm bells with me but this may be OK for light use.

Mmmm..I'm tempted to get one of those for stock, as it were. I reckon you could also use it to provide a wet facility to a non-wet/dry vacuum.

I've heard good things about the ALDI and Lidl ones too.
I use a cheapo MacAlister? from B&Q which I bought years ago, and it still works fine as a secondary one - for sweeping up and attaching to lighter machines etc. Has a power take-off too.
