With a powerful Input 200W motor the AFS-1000 B is intended for the bigger more commercial workshop; it needs a secure mounting capable of holding a 40kg static load, at least 2 metres off the ground. The air passes through the electrostatic pre-filter into the main pleated filter, filtering 98% of all particles 5 microns in size and 85% of all particles 1 micron in size. The remote control unit has three settings for the motor speed and three different time settings of 2 hours, 4 hours and 8 hours, which can be used to clear the workshop after work has finished for the day. An optional charcoal filter is available, which will neutralise odours and harmful organic fumes or particles including pollen. A handy ceiling mounting kit consisting of 4 lengths of flexible stainless steel wire with screw eyes and bolt up crimps allows the machine to be positioned out of the way. Supplied with electrostatic pre-filter, main filter and 4 mounting eyes. The machine runs reasonably quietly with noise levels of speed 1: 62 dB. speed 2: 66 dB. and speed 3: 68 dB.

Essential kitAn absolute essential kit to have in a workshop, whether wood working facilities or surfboard shaping cabins (although for this last one I'm sure a larger system would be preferable).

Look inside the filter before first use...When I first got this air filter I turned it on and thought it was very noisy, too noisy to work in the same room. It was a shame, but it worked well, so I just put up with it.

SatisfiedIt has been hanging on my workshop ceiling for 6 years now and still going strong. Must admit it only runs 10% of the time, when I do some very dusty stuff. It should run all of the time, I know I know;) When filter gets full I take it outside and blow it off with the compressor. Can do that for at least 20-30 times. Quality will surely go slightly down, but still better than no filter. Remote is great. Don't mind the noise as I wear headphones all day longanyway, so that's no issue. Very satisfied. In my new workshop I will surely mount a second one:)

Great Air FilterFirst, I'd like to mention Axminster's customers service. I had this unit a month before I unboxed it. I know that may sound weird, but I've been refurbishing my workshop and it was the last thing to set up. Unfortunately the unit was damaged like it had been dropped during delivery; the quite flimsy steel box was crumpled in two places and the internal drum was misaligned. The packaging in the box was pretty useless to be honest. A phone call to Axminster and the unit was picked up and replaced without any problems.

BrilliantBought this machine about a month ago, why I didn't have one earlier god knows, been running it for about 4 hours a day and looked at pre filter couldn't believe how much dust it had picked up, don't hesitate to buy one of these your lungs will love you for it and I don't cough anywhere near as much as I did before. A little bit noisy but I can live with that. All round a brilliant piece of kit good addition to any workshop.
