This extractor, with its 1.5kW motor, large capacity collection bag and twin 100mm hose inlets, will handle most single workshop machines. Use the single 125mm inlet or the twin 100mm adaptor for two smaller machines. The top cloth bag acts as the filter whilst the lower plastic bag collects the coarse dust and chippings. Plastic bags allow a number of bags to be filled and stored ready for bulk disposal. There are bag hooks to make changing a full bag easy. The extractor's filtration system can be upgraded with the addition of the cartridge filter. This has a large surface area of filter material, so does not reduce the airflow. A simple rotating handle is used to clean the filter. The solid connection tube between the impeller housing and collector creates an efficient air flow system. For best results, keep the hose size to a minimum of 100mm, using a smaller diameter hose will cause the air flow to drop markedly. Castors on the base allow for easy mobility around the workshop. This is a good, solid, simple extractor. Lengths of suitable inlet hose are listed under Dust Extraction Accessories. N.B. This machine uses waste sack size 785 x 1,200mm (501187).

Gone through 4 sack fills and still running greatI bought this as a package deal with the Axminster planer. This is the first Extractor I've owned and I am really happy with the build quality and performance. I've even started using this to vac the shop floor in surrounding area instead of my Festool vac. Only small annoyance is that fitting the bag on your own is not that easy as holding the bag up and doing the fastener belt is tricky. But this small fact won't brush off a star from my review. If you have long shavings, they can clog the suction port as there is a metal cross diving the port. I've never had it clog from using it with the planer. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and it has made my workflow a much better experience!

ok but..power level excelkent for dust extraction from woodlathe. Build quality not great ...mounting to attack motor housing to base is poor and vibration levels are such thatnuts/bolts/washers fall off. seals at joints not perfect but not bad...some dust comes out. woidturning 'streamers' get caught in finger guard at machine end of hose and clag up causing complete loss of suction...resulting in need to stop all machines, undo hose and unclag by hand.

Good extractor with limitations. Great aftersales serviceHooked up to a 4" system extracting from planer/thicknesser, table saw and router table, all with blast gates. Works a treat. Not so good at extracting through a single 2" hose for power tools, the impeller seems to stall so I still use the Record Power RSDE/2A for that.

FM300dc issuesI recently purchased this and had a few teething problems with a faulty NV switch (apparently a regular problem - possibly too lightweight for power?) which Axminster sorted out without delay involving exchange motor unit at branch
