WOOD magazine review

Value priced

Review Summary

High points: The lowest-priced cyclone in our test. A clean-out zipper on the filter bag makes dust removal fast and easy. Optional 26-gal.drum is small, but it mounts to and dismounts from the cyclone quickly and handles easier than larger drums. Wall-mounting brackets come with the cyclone. Packaged for shipping via UPS. Low points: This unit pulled the lowest SCFM in the test. Lots of assembly work, and the manual is disorganized and confusing.
More points: Also available with .5 micron canister filter (TEMPESTCX).
