Product Information:

The Laguna Mobile Cyclone dust collector offers the benefits of a cyclone and the portability needed for workshops of all sizes. The cyclone collection unit allows the wood particles and dust to be separated from the air stream before exiting through the one-micron pleated cartridge filter. This provides superior dust collection and air filtration so that the wood particles do not pass through the efficient fan unit. Dust is collected in a 29-gallon metal collection drum with quick release and separate wheels for quick and easy emptying. Manual filter cleaning insures that the pleated filter is always ready for the next use of the machine and remains in top shape. A unique feature is the negative pressure hose that is fed to the bottom of the drum to ensure the plastic bag remains inside the drum. The remote control allows you to start the machine from anywhere in the shop, saving you time and steps. Industrial casters allow this machine to move easily around your shop. Rated at 74Db, this machine is also quiet, protecting your ears as well as your lungs.

    Comments about Laguna Mobile Cyclone 2HP :

    After seeing the reviews on YouTube, I expected to have to work through some issues of leaky welds and poor construction. I found none of that. I did find the instructions a challenge, but if you use the illustrations and take the prose as suggestions, you can get through it. The collector comes well packed on a small pallet. I recommend you remove the staples from the bottom of the pallet and pull the entire box off the top. If you go from the top of the box down like I did, you will have to break up the packing material. Be careful though, the legs are packed in the very outside portion of the box. The instructions do get one thing right, the unit is very heavy and difficult to hold. I layed mine on it's back on some moving pads and attached the legs. Then it was easy to upright the entire machine on the wheels. Be sure to put something to chock the wheels so they don't roll as you raise the unit. As mentioned, the welding problem is solved with exterior welds on all points. There is foam tape to seal all of the connections as well. They've replaced the positive pressure hose for the collection drum with a metal frame that keeps the plastic bag from being sucked up. Works great, but a bit of a pain to assemble. The only real assembly problem I had was that the lower filter brace did not line up. With the beef of the upper brace, it seems like overkill anyway. I'll keep an eye on it as the unit fills up, but I'm sure it's OK. Efficient and relatively quite operation. I think the cyclone makes more nose than the motor, but that can't be helped. Still, very quiet. The only modification I made was to drill a hole in the plastic byfurcation attachment so it dispensed the 4" intakes to the left and right verses up and down. It took more time to put the drill bit in the driver than it did to make the adjustment. It looks cool too!

    Comments about Laguna Mobile Cyclone 2HP :

    Laguna has put some good thought into this tool, and it works well. The suction is quite good -- I upgraded from a 1-1/2 HP bag collector, and even though the HP rating on this machine is only 2 HP, it's a huge improvement from the bag collector. (I assume the larger impeller makes a big difference.) I'm about to upgrade my ducting to 6" pipes, and I'm hoping to see even more improvement once that is done. There are many nice convenience features on the tool. The remote control is very nice. The clamps for the trash can are extremely convenient. The mobility system is very nice as well -- 4 swivelling casters. To me, the Laguna is superior to the 2HP Oneida mobile DC model in all of these areas. Although the cyclone is smaller than some of the non-mobile units out there, very little dust gets into the filter and the collector bag that sits below the filter. I get 1/2 cup or so of dust in the collector bag for each full trash can of chips and dust. So the cyclone is pretty efficient for a relatively small machine. One of the nicest things about this machine is the noise. No dust collector is quiet, but this is the quietest one I have ever used. There's certainly some noise, but I was pleasantly surprised. I see some people building enclosures for their stationary cyclones to cut down the noise, but this model is quieter than my power tools. There was a video review on YouTube of this machine that noted some QC problems. Either I got a good one or they solved the QC problems, because I had none of the problems the fellow in the video had. (Although Laguna apparently resolved his issues as well.) Overall, I give this machine a very positive review. However, I knock off one star for the fact that, for a little more money, you can get a very nice 5HP stationary cyclone. While I prefer the small profile and mobility of this unit, I think there should be a bigger price drop from the large 5HP stationary units down to this model. With that said, the price of this unit is very competitive with the similar O'Neida model, and I prefer this Laguna to the similarly priced O'Neida. If I could give this machine 4-1/2 stars, I would.
