This went together easily. I hooked it up to my 3HP SawStop and a Dewalt Planer with gates. It really does the job. I plan to expand it to my router and band saw which are on the other side of the shop. I expect that to work as well using gates to make sure the suction is only on one tool at a time.
Good value in a dust collector
I bought this item 4-5 years ago and it worked well. I have a small woodworking shop and used it as a portable unit for about 2 years. It has two 4" ports and good suction. Took a while to learn how best to clean the catch bag and replace it. There are some steps which make it easier and after some experience it became fairly easy. It was a little hard to move it around due to the small wheels and flimsy stand, but it worked for my needs. I then added a dust separator using the vacumm lid they sell for a garbage cans (Item #143290). This made it a stationary machine but really increased its utility and power by making it a two stage system. This became an awesome shop vac system. If you buy this I highly recommend adding a trash can lid separator with a garbage can right away. It makes this machine twice as good and you will not have to empty the bag very often as over 90% of your sawdust will be captured in the garbage can which is very easy to empty. The bag and three legged stand are flimsy but if you don't empty it often that is not much of an issue. I clean it out about once a year versus every 2-3 months. All in all I would buy it again, but buy a lid separator immediatly. My needs are growing and I will move up to a larger two stage unit in the next year or so, but this unit has served a fairly active shop well for about 5 years. It is a good value and still has all the power when I bought it 5 years ago.
Arrived promptly, in good condition and as advertised. The three legs supporting the bag and filter are too lightweight, would be better if designed with a fourth leg. With limited initial use, it appears to operate well and provide adequate suction and chip removal for table saw and band saw, using one tool at a time.
Jet Vortex DC 1100VX-CK
This is the first Dust contoller I have owned and I did a lot of research. I think it is great value for the money and does an excellent job. I wish Jet had done a better job of identifying the screws, nuts and washers into seperate marked bags. Several times I used the wrong ones in the wrong hole and it took me double the time to errect it because of my errors. I would also be usuful if they you that to try it out you need to buy some 4" and 2" duct work and some clamps to connect it to a machine to at least test it. I have a local store within 2 miles of my house so it was easy for me to get it. That said I am very pleased with it and it is well worth the extra to get a Vortex machine over a traditional vacuum system or shop vacs.
I have never owned a dust collector and purchased this one after much research a couple months ago. I have been very impressed with this dust collector. It works flawlessly, is quiet, has great suction (can easily handle two tools) and keeps the shop amazingly clean. I spent an entire day working in the shop planing, jointing, and cutting rough cut wood and the collector collected over 30 gallons of dust. I later swept the floor and had 2 cups of dust left over that I am sure escaped the top of my table saw. Never during the day did I even observe any dust floating in the air! The filter also remained completely clean. Great product!
