Many of the design features of the DC-1100VX-CK allow for straightforward and expedient use. The totally enclosed, fan-cooled, 1.5-horsepower motor is rated for continuous duty with plentiful horsepower for efficient air movement, while the precision-balanced, all-steel impeller maximizes air intake. The see-through dust bag helps prevent premature bag change-outs, and the sewn-in snap ring makes for rapid insertion and removal. Its canister is installed and removed without tools thanks to the large, ergonomic knobs that are easy to handle. Plus, four heavy-duty casters make for easy mobility around the workshop.
Benefits Behind the Technology
First and foremost, the Vortex Cone technology eliminates filter clogging, which in turn improves ease of use, strengthens performance quality, and extends the lifespan of the machine. It dramatically advances chip-separation efficiency in single-stage dust collectors, and it aids quick fallout of chips into the collector bag. Fewer bag changes are required because of the reduction in violent airflows that increases packing effectiveness.

The unit runs at about 75 decibels at about 3 feet (I have an SPL meter). I'd say it is similar to the volume of my large Ridgid shop vac, but it has a lower, broader sound. It is definitely quieter than my contractor table saw which runs at about 85db. I was really concerned about the volume of the collector before buying, but it is not an issue at all. I have a 4 inch expandable hose from Rockler on the unit connecting to my table saw, and it does a great job. Definitely moves a lot more air than the shop vac did. The cyclonic action really seems to swirl the dust around in the bag. I don't have a planer or anything making big chips, so I don't have need of a separator yet, but unless I get a tool like that I think this will work very well for me as is.
I did a lot of comparison shopping before buying this collector, with a spreadsheet and everything! This was not the winner due to its price. However, as I considered the cost of adding a cyclonic component afterwards to other units, the complaints on cheaper units and how badly the parts lined up or were missing parts, etc. I decided price was not the most important factor with this purchase. I have had some regrets in the past after choosing the lowest price option and am finding I am more satisfied when I invest the extra money in something of better quality. With this purchase, I felt the extra investment was well worth it from the moment I started pulling parts out and seeing how solid they were. I think it's really an attractive tool as well, and like having it tucked in the corner of my shop! I think it will last a very long time.
I've only ran about five bags of chips and dust through my DC1100VX. From that experience, I offer the following:
1) I highly recommend the DC-1100VX to anyone performing just one dust producing operation at a time and if you find yourself turning the unit off and on throughout the day, or running the unit for extended periods.
2) When installing bags, I made the mistake of folding the excess to the inside. After removing the upper filter to see why the unit wasn't drawing well, I discovered a lot of dust built up around the cyclone. Just moving the excess to the outside stopped the dust from collecting around the top of the bag and reducing the holes size. The suction performance immediately and hugely improved.
3) When you clean the filter [by spinning the handles on top to move agitator flaps over the filter pleats], shake the bag holder a little. You will notice very little seems to happen just moving the agitator flaps, but after shaking the unit, everything that landed in the cyclone cap area drops into the bag resulting in an immediate and huge boost in suction. Of course, the system should be off when cleaning the filter.
4) The difference in performance with both ports open and only one port open is VERY significant. Whether or not you can collect dust and chips from two operations at the same time depends on the operations. For example, I run both my over-arm blade guard-dust collector on my table saw. Less is picked up from the cabinet, but the trade off is less dust over all.
5) I recommend investing in or building a vacuum tube to attach to the four inch hose. This does an excellent job of picking up chips and dust around the shop and I turn to it more often than my shop vac.
6) I often hear chips and things hitting the impellers and I am concerned about the beating they take when the unit passes large pieces of wood or the occasional screw or nail (e.g., when cleaning the floor). For that reason, I am considering investing in the larger version of my highly valued Oneida Dust DeputyOneida Molded DIY Dust Deputy Cyclone ONEIDA AIR SYSTEMS Super Dust Deputy Molded Cyclone Onlyto remove large debris and most of the dust. I've been using a Dust Deputy with my shop vac for several years because it allows me to go several times as long before cleaning the filter. Using a cyclone pre-filter would reduce or stop damage to the impeller of my dust collector.
7) Having a couple of these would be really nice to avoid having to drag a hose across the shop when switching between the miter, jig saw, table saw, jointer, planer, spindle sander, band saw, over-arm router, table router, sanding table and so forth. The easier it is to switch between tools the more likely dust collection will be used.
8) Available remote control aside, it would be nice if Jet raised the power switch up off the motor to make it just a bit more accessible. Of course, reaching down to press a button is no more inconvenient than moving the hose from tool to tool.
UPDATE [Months and more bags of dust later]:
I remain very much pleased with the performance of the dust collector, but made the plunge for the Oneida Super Dust Deputy. After just a few minutes of use, it became obvious it was a good decision. It removes everything that might damage the impeller, reduces the dust to the canister filter to a mere fraction of what it was before, and it does not compromise performance overly much.
Before, I tried a set up consisting of a trash can and a separator lid. The lid sells on line for around twenty dollars. While it solved the problem of debris hitting the impellers and did remove all the heavier debris before it got to the collector, it also knocked down CFM and pressure to intolerable levels.
For the debris dump under the Deputy, I used a thirty gallon, plastic barrel. I cut the top out and cut a 3" wide by 10" tall hole in the side, about sixteen inches from the bottom. Then I riveted clear plexi over the side cutout and sealed it to the barrel. This serves as a view port to monitor debris levels.
I made the top from laminated counter top I was preparing to toss. I flooded the particle board side with poly, to stop flaking and to give a good surface for gaskets necessary to seal the unit. Once hardened, I installed foam gasket used to seal doors.
To hold the top [with the Deputy installed on it] to the barrel and to insure a good seal, I bought two pair (4 ea) of the rubber [and metal bracket] hold-downs you see used on step vans and big trucks. They are available elsewhere on Amazon and apply enough pressure to insure a seal.
For reducers, necessary connect standard, four inch connectors [for the four inch hose] to the Deputy, I just cut out circles from scrap 2x8 stock in sizes that press fit in the Deputy's ports. Then, I cut holes in those to accept the connectors for the four inch pipe.
Cyclones cannot have any air leaks, to run at peak efficiency, and to minimize the amount of dust to the final filter. With everything sealed and otherwise ready to go, I fired up the collector started by vacuuming the floor. The CFM and pressure drop, compared to bypassing the cyclone, was barely noticeable. Of course, when I purposely vacuumed some large pieces of wood, they spun out before they could get to the impellers. Too, at the end of the day, only a small amount of dust made it to the filter and the collector was working about as strong as when it started. Agitating the filter and shaking the filter resulted in very little material dropping down into the clear bag.
