This extractor can be used in small home workshops for common wood machining tasks where a higher airflow than provided by a vacuum extractor is required. The quiet running induction motor provides plenty of power to extract from many small workshop machines. The inlet diameter is 100mm(4"), the outlet into the bag is 100mm(4") and the airflow is sufficient to handle the majority of waste likely to be produced in the small home workshop. A useful feature is that it can be used either on the floor or suspended from a sturdy wall using the two hanging brackets provided. A useful grab handle and castors allow easy mobility. Hose not supplied. See extraction hose selection for further details. Please note that this is a chippings extractor and should not be expected to collect fine dust. As with all the high volume low pressure airflow machines, the inlet should not be restricted to below 75mm diameter and the bag should be emptied regularly. Spare bag provided.Performance Rating 1

Good valueI'm pleasantly surprised with this little machine coupled to my Hammer A3-31 PT. I needed something compact due to space constraints and was a little concerned this wouldn't be able to cope. However, it works well, capturing most of the chips produced. No complaints so far.

Good for small shavings but...A neat bit of kit that works quite well for very fine wood chips and sawdust, but it's inlet quickly clogs up and blocks with large chips and wood shavings. I use mine exclusively to support my wood turning, and certain woods do produce large shavings. On these occasions I spend half my time on my knees with the inlet hose uncoupled, clearing the blockage and this can be rather frustrating. The machine will not remove fine dust, and I did not expect it to. Noise level is not excessive. Emptying the cloth bag (through the neck) can be a bit fiddly and dusty - a zip or Velcro in the large end of the bag would have been innovative. Two bags are supplied, and they last well - I launder mine regularly. Overall, neat, reasonably quiet, and good value for money for small sawdust, but a better approach needed for coarse chippings.

Extractor is good but text is wrong - beware!Extractor is fine but frustrating that APTC specifically state "the outlet into the bag is 125mm(5") " which is incorrect, it is 100mm. So muggins went and bought expensive 125mm semi rigid aluminium duct and fittings for the outlet (wasn't using the supplied bag) and all of this was an expensive waste of money. Please correct the text in the description, APTC!

very nice little machinethis machine is ideal for the hobbyist who wants to collect your waste wood chips up, have found it very good to keep my place clean and tidy would recommend it to people who have a small work shop. the delivery was within 17 hours of ordering. Many thanks jack

Great extractor!I have a small workshop where i do wood turning so i needed something relatively small help remove small amounts of dust and mostly shavings and chips at the lathe. I mounted the extractor on the wall (really easy to do with the added brackets) and have hooked this machine up to a homemade chip separator so any large chips and quite a bit of dust get caught in the baffle separator and don't clog up the bag as fast. The extractor actually came with 2 bags, i don't know if it was a mistake as its not mentioned in the description but i doubled them up so trap more of the fine dust, its still not a fine dust extractor and will still not perform as such. I have used 100mm flexible ducting as recommended in the instructions and at the lathe there is a flexible hose which is 75mm in diameter and it still provides great suction.
