WoodRiver 110-Volt Dust Collector Remote Control Switch
My wife got me one of these for father's day. Works well but very expensive for what it is. I returned and got same thing but in the xmas light isle at a local retailer for 1/3 of the price. It's forest green like xmas stuff but other than that works great. Also fun to mess with the kids to set your garage door opener buttons in your vehicle to this devide and then turn on lights, radio, ... when they least expect it.

Mostly great, but can be finicky
When it's working it's great, the problem is it doesn't always work for me. I have a Delta 50-760 1.5HP dust collector, and bought this so I didn't have to run back & forth every time I used it. It has mostly worked flawlessly, but sometimes refuses to turn on the dust collector. I suspect the problem is the high startup amperage of the DC. If I plug anything else like a lamp or my drill press, it works fine. The DC plugged into the wall works fine. But plug the DC into the remote box, hit the button & nothing happens. Extra frustrating is that it's doing this now after working fine for a couple years. It did it once before, but started working again as mysteriously as it stopped. I really miss having this functionality available, and hope mine decides to start working with the DC again soon.

This unit is great! I was able to position the dust collector in an out-of-the-way location in the shop, and simply clip the remote to a convenient spot in the center of the room.
Didn't want a unit that auto-senses when a tool is turned on for several reasons:
- they share the same AC circuit as the power tool
- they only work with whichever tool is plugged into the unit.. What about your other tools?
- the collector only runs when the tool is running. Sounds obvious, but I quickly learned that starting the collector first allows it to get up to speed before starting the tool. AND.. it is so nice to let the collector run for a bit AFTER turning off the tool.
Had it for a few weeks now and absolutely love it!
Works as advertised
handy to not have to walk all over the shop to energize the dust collection system.
A real step saver
Remotely turns on/off dust collector as needed. I have several machines connected to my dust colector system, so it does save a lot of steps as the remote fob is hooked to my belt loop all day. The only small down-side is that every so often I lean against something and accidentally turn on the dust collector. No biggy.
Saves time and steps
A little pricey addition to my garage shop but it does what it's supposed to. Don't lose the remote
Sierra Vista, AZ
I gave it only 4 stars because the first one I received was defective. The replacement worked very well. It saves me lots of time not having to stumble thru my workshop to get to the dust collector and turn it on.
A must for Dust Collection
Remote your dust collection. Turn it on standing at your table saw without running around. A little pricey but worth the rime and effort

Wish I had purchased this a long time ago! Just plug it in, plug your dust collector into it and you're ready to go! Remote had batter pre-installed. I no longer have to worry about turning two tools on. I keep the remote fob clipped to my belt loop. Couldn't be easier - great value!
