Wise Buys: Dust Collector Remote Controls
Penn State Long Ranger III, LR110-3
110- volt model (shown)
220-volt model (LR220-3)
My dust collector is really loud, so I don't like to leave it running. That soon became a lazy, messy habit as I found myself not using it often enough unless machining a lot of stock. Now with the Long Ranger remote I use my collector every time I fire up a machine. Turns out, the remote doesn't have to be pointed directly at the wall unit as with my TV remote. It worked consistently from inside the house, through walls, out in the pole barn, and--because I wanted to see just how "long range" it really is--from my driveway 330' away. You can buy a second remote ($20) that's reprogrammable for the same controller.
