Woodworkers looking for premium performance and durable design in dust collection will likely be pleased with the Delta 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector. This is one of their newest collectors added to their line of premium dust management products. The new dust collector delivers power and filtration above that of previous dust collection offerings and packs it into a durable sheet metal frame design for added stability and maneuverability.

“While most dust collectors on the market today include only a few features critical to quality performance, the new Delta 1-1/2 HP Dust Collector delivers a complete package designed and manufactured to run for the long haul. Although dust collectors are typically considered a passive tool in the shop, Delta understands the ever important need for a long-lasting machine that maintains a clean environment and can be easily maneuvered throughout the woodshop.”

– Bill Harman, product manager for Delta Machinery


Delta 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector Features

With a maximum air velocity of 1,200 cubic feet per minute (CFM), the 50-786 Delta 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector boasts best-in-class performance that minimizes the detrimental effects of airborne contaminants that woodworking naturally produces. A new one-micron filter bag complements the machine’s power with 97 percent filtration and containment of fine dust particles, maximizing airflow for a clean shop setting.

The Delta dust collector comes with two disposable bags, specially designed for convenient “fill and toss” waste disposal. Unlike solid cloth bags, the clear bag allows users to easily monitor dust levels. A canister option is also available and adds five times the filter area compared to disposable and cloth bags.

For added convenience, mobility and performance, the 50-786 features a much sturdier sheet metal frame design compared to “laundry cart” designs. Plus, swivel casters and a convenient pull handle allows for easier maneuverability between stations or for storing out of the way.

Created for intermediate and professional woodworkers wanting to upgrade to a powerful, durable and efficient dust collector, the Delta 1 1/2 HP Dust Collector 50-786 is backed by a five-year warranty and will be available in August 2010 at specialty woodworking dealers for a suggested retail price of $429.

Ridgid WD7000 11 Gallon Smart Cart Vacuum

Most wet/dry shop type vacuums are all plagued with the same problems. There is nowhere to put additional attachments, hoses and cords are haphazardly dangling around and those pesky extension handles are always falling off. Ridgid attempts to remedy these problems with their new Smart Cart Vacuum WD7000.

Ridgid SmartCart Vacuum WD7000 Review

I wouldn’t have thought that a shop vac would get me excited. After all, they are nothing new and have been helping do-it-yourselfers and professionals clean up jobsites for years. But, winter is here and I find myself engaging in a lot of clean-up around the house lately. After using a traditional shop vac for several years and suffering the poor ergonomic design of the vacuums in general, I was excited to see a new form factor hit the market. Ridgid has quite possibly redesigned the genre by producing their WD7000 Smart Cart vacuum that offers, among other things, complete accessory storage and increased maneuverability. This is a very new kind of shop vac – and it’s broken the mold.
