Having spent 3 months working on numerous carpentry projects I became sick and tired of my £40 argos vacuum. The tiny capacity meant emptying the unit 2 or 3 times in a single use, and the filter was constantly clogging up with sawdust. Evidently using a domestic vacuum for industrial use just wasn't working out.

"How much better can a £90 vacuum from SIP be?" I wondered. Much better as it turned out.

Firstly the unit is grey not black as per the picture, but that didn't matter. The cylinder while not physically huge stores a huge amount of waste, and the large 100mm hose will ensure it'll never get clogged up.

To my surprise the unit comes not only with the 5 piece adapters (which fit everything i've tried to plug into it) but also the filter and 5 vacuum bags to keep the dust out of the filter. So far this setup seems very effective and the vacuum hasn't lost any suction in the few days I've used it.

Better still, I can plug in the vacuum attachment from my old argos unit and use it as a traditional vacuum and that really shows that this is a far better quality unit.

For the price, you can't go wrong. If you're even an occasional woodworker or hobbyist, this will help to keep away all the dust nicely.

This extractor was well packaged and delivered quickly. I have used it with a planner and a band saw and the extractor is efficient and fairly quiet. The connector set is a useful addition for smaller machines such as my disc & belt sander. The connection hose is very sturdy and fairly rigid ( you may with to buy a more flexible hose if you have to navigate awkward positions). Overall and good buy

The dust collector does just what I expected and overall is decent quality. I use it for my table saw and planer/thicknesser and it works fine. I also connect it to an old house vacuum hose and it works well to clean up the floor. It is about as loud as any other shop vac, so yes ear plugs are recommended. For what I was looking for a home shop I'm happy. It's a dust collector so I'm not going to say I love it...

I use this extractor regularly on my table saw, planer and bandsaw. It does the job really well although capacity is relatively low it's easy to empty and is compact. The build quality is very good and the supplied hose is surprisingly good too. It's noisy but I wear ear defenders as a matter of course so no biggy.

Briliant item works well both as a chip extractor as well as a hoover.

I bought this model and did not have any problems until the motor burnt out when it was being used. SIP replaced this foc in May 2014. However I was using that extractor last week and the same thing happened. This time SIP will not do anything as they say the warranty is only valid from the original purchase date, even though this one is not even a year old. I used the machine in accordance with the instructions and only for diy purposes so it was not used everyday. In fact the replacement had only been used 3 to 4 times since arrival. I am disappointed that it was not more reliable from a reputable manufacturer.

When I made my choice regarding dust collectors I was influenced by one of the reviews which said this item was quiet. However, I must have got a different item because this unit is much noisier than expected. I have purchased some ear defenders from amazon so hopefully they will help me, my neighbours and family will have to put up with it, but at least they won't be in the same room.

What really annoyed me about this unit was the instructions. It says in at least two place in the instructions that came with the unit, that it is not for collecting dust. Yes, I'll repeat that, "It is not for collecting dust." Now that seems a bit of a shame because on Amazon it said it is a dust collector, on the front of the machine it says its a dust collector and on the front of the instructions it says it is a dust collector.
In my mind it is a bit like selling a teapot that shouldn't be used for making tea.

Anyway, I was concerned about my health and if this unit was to be only used for shavings, that's what it says in the instruction. I thought I'd ask Cooks of Bedford, who supplied the unit through amazon, to clarify the issue. I got a prompt response from a very nice man which said he would contact the manufacturer. The manufacturer told him that during translation the mistake had gotten into the instructions. I afraid my confidence in this item was reduced considerably.

If this had been a smaller item I would have packaged it up and sent it back, but being so big it would be a lot of hassle, so reluctantly I am keeping it.
