Nice, beginning dust collection system

Review Summary

Got one of these as part of my planer purchase from Craigslist, and used it for about 18 months before opting for a larger system when I was upgrading my shop.
I wanted to stop having hoses running across the floor, and mover to an Oneida system earlier this year, which I will add a review for after this one. This collector worked fine for single tools, and did a respectable job of collecting dust, but I found the emptying of the bag to be a fairly messy process, with the spring bag method of securing not the easiest to manage. The unit is noisy, but delivers good pickup power. Cleaning the top bag is not very easy, but not terrible. Overall, as I stated earlier, a good system for the small shop. Make sure you wear hearing protection, and make sure the bags are securely connected so you don't end up in a "cloud of dust".
