C | Flux 3 HP 220 v Cyclone
The C|Flux series sets a new standard for cyclones. The horizontal chute is designed to maximize airflow while improving CFM. All shapes and dimensions have been reevaluated to optimize performance. This design allows for much better portability as you are not forcing four wheels into...
The C|Flux:3 comes standard with a 1 micron canister providing filtration of 99.7% of particles 1 micron or larger and features 109 sq./ft. of polyester spun bond pleated filter to ensure maximum airflow. 270 degree manual clean comes standard. The C|Flux series can be equipped with an optional auto clean kit either at time of purchase or as an add-on later. The auto clean kit includes a smart sensor that detects a drop in air pressure indicating the filter is getting clogged and it automatically activates the cleaning procedure. An ingenious lift system quickly moves the drum off of the floor and seals against the drum lid avoiding the need for a flex hose. This design allows for much better mobility as you are not forcing four wheels into the floor while pushing the unit.

Good Value for Money
I purchased this machine about 6 months ago knowing it would be overkill for may 'quaint' 13 x 23 shop, however I am very glad I did. This machine is perfect for my small shop and the price was right compared to similar spec machines. I have a few issues with this machine that keep it from being a five star machine, but please understand that I am overall very pleased with my purchase, and would buy it again. The vacuum performance is everything I hoped for. This machine easily keeps up with my 20 inch planer taking a heavy cut through my 6 inch duct work. There is so much suction that I can't even open the bottom door to my band saw when this machine is on! Absolutely no complaints in this department, which is why I think this machine is such good value. A+ The separation and filtration are less impressive but still adequate. It take about 6-7 barrels full of dust to fill the plastic bag below the filter mostly full. I hoped for more but I can deal with this. Also, filtration is lacking a bit because I can see dust coming out of the filter when I use my the filter cleaning handle. I again can deal with this because by buying this machine you are opting out of the HEPA filter option. I give the machine a B- in this department. The instructions are good for laughing at, but thats about it. They are horrible in every way from telling which screw to use, to telling you to put things together that were done at the factory. I also had a part left over that was not even mentioned in the parts list of the manual. After researching it, this piece was an air deflector for just above the barrel but this should have been in the manual obviously. Laguna's saving grace here was the videos they produced online that walk through the assembly, but even they are flawed. In all assembly took 5 hours, but I was able to complete the process without calling customer service. C- Fit and finish is almost flawless. The one glaring flaw in the slaw is the on off button which works... most of the time. I have had a few instances where the machine would not turn off when I was pushing hard on the button. I had to track down the remote which works perfectly to turn the machine off. Good remote, bad buttons. I think its fair to call this a safety hazard. B+ for fit and finish. Woodcraft delivery was about the usual speed. I was told it would be here in 7 business days, but it took 16 business days. Enough said there. D As previously stated, I am very happy overall with this machine, but I wanted to address every flaw in case this is a deal breaker for anyone. For me, this machine is incredible value for money and I would happily purchase it again.
