This is a rather neat concept, a wall mounted extractor perfectly suited to small workshops, woodturners or for connecting to a stand-alone machine. Well made and efficient, its 1hp motor generates 1,000m³/hr of airflow and is fitted with a 1 micron rated cartridge filter. This is able to handle chippings, course and medium fine dusts. Maybe not the right machine for a drum sander, but perfectly suitable for woodturning, especially where floor space is at a premium. The collection bag is clipped to the bottom of the filter; if you wish to fit a larger bag, please support it underneath on the floor or the weight of a full bag of waste may be enough to pull it off the filter. The filter has a crank handle operating a paddle to keep the interior clean, just use this periodically to maintain filter efficiency. This extractor could well be a handy solution for small workshops. Please make sure your wall is capable of supporting the extractor's weight.

Very compactArrived in good time as always, I've had this for a few months now and its very compact (takes up little room when mounted on the wall in a corner) But because of its design the filter clogs quite quickly which reduces air flow a fair bit and needs a crank of the paddle every time you switch off (sometimes in between planning jobs) hopefully this will not wear out the inside of the filter prematurely. Usual Chinese build, painted over rust, badly set up, loose bolts, tin work and motor not sealed so it leaked dust all to be expected and easily sorted. Once set up it runs very clean (not that quite) has a really good filter great for a small work shop I'm using 5-6m run of 100mm ducting I'm using a band saw and a PT cutting hard wood.

OK, but not great of a 100mm ducting as claimedI upgraded to this extractor, as I had upgraded to 100mm metal ducting in our small hobby workshop. The run is probably 15 meters, with 2 turns and 4 x 2 meter drops, blast gates on each.

Compact and cheap but needs cleaningLets start with the good bits - this is a powerful, effective extractor which has a very small footprint. It is wall mounted which means you can mount it above other items - ideal for a small workshop. I find it powerful enough for my P/T and bandsaw - I intend to run it through a simple ducted system using soil pipe but just use it with a length of flexi pipe at the moment.

FantasticJust installed in a small workshop, plenty of suction and very compact

Perfect for a small workshopMy workshop isn't that small but having seen the size of the mobile chip extractors I didn't want this purchase taking up room that I need for a more valuable machine. I was impressed by the quality of this extractor, it's really compact and the volume of extraction is more than enough when working directly connected to one machine at a time. It fits neatly on the wall of my workshop, I may make up an additional bracket so I can move it to the opposite wall where I have my wood lathe, but its main use is with my planer thicknesser. All in all trade quality system so I can use it for more than 2 hours per week without voiding the warranty, compact size, 1 micron dust filter and cost swung the deal. Downside i that I need to build a support for the bottom of the bag because the height that the instructions say to place on the wall mean that this bag is suspended off the floor
