One of my options was to buy a standard two-bag collector and install a garbage-can separator before it. This didn't meet the filter criteria. Also, it's not very portable because there are two pieces to move, not one.
Another option was to buy the larger JET DC-1100CK to get the canister filter. But, that model is not a two-stage collector. To have that capability a trash can separator would again be added, eliminating the portability.
After researching every brand I could find, I settled on the JET DC-TS650. It has a canister filter and sits on top of a trash can, just like the plastic separator lids. I went to the local home center and purchased a 30-gallon metal can to go with it.
-Canister filter is very effective at containing fine dust.
-Separator system works extremely well even when bits of wood or nails are sucked in. Nothing ever hits the impeller.
-Much quieter than expected. I'm used to hearing the howl from larger units. This one is actually not bad!
-Included hose is not very long. Buy a 10-foot section and some connectors for your equipment.
-Lid is rather flimsy. The motor casing is solid metal. The lid that it is attached to is only plastic. The day it falls apart is the day that I attach the motor to the metal lid that was included with the trash can.
-Air leaks. Between the motor and the canister filter there is a duct in the metal that is formed by two pieces that are bolted together. The seal is not air-tight and allows some fine dust back into the room.
-Small filter.Read more ›
The unit fit well on a 44 gallon Rubbermaid container. The unit is slightly larger than a houshold rug vauum cleaner. The housing of the motor is aluminum while the lid looks like PVC.
The unit comes with a clear 4" diameter hose that is really about 2 to 4 feet too short to be usefull for easy set up. I use a twist fit and a quick disconnect as the only add-on to complete this unit.
I am very satisfied with this unit for my needs. I took advantage of the WHM tool group 100 rebate for second purchases and Amazon.com had a 25 usd off orders over 199 coupon, to make the unit 225. This is a resonable price. I think list of 349 is very high though for the type of unit this is.
1. Very hard to clean the filter.
2. Very fine dust like from a drum or wide belt sander plugs it up almost instantly.
3. lid is heavy and inconvenient and needs a very tall can to keep from sucking stuff from the trash can into the filter.
4. Not sure I ever got even near 650 cfm. Doesn't even work on one machine very well.
5. Usual crappy tech support from Jet, Performax, Delta ETC. You know when they all are under one corporation, tech support will go down the tubes.
5. Reccomendation: buy something more powerful like a cyclone type DC.
