Shop-vac filters are not cheap. And after just a few minutes fine dust can clog filters and dramatically reduce suction.
This means you have to change them out often to keep your vac working. So whether you just like a clean vehicle or are an avid woodworker, a dust separator can increase the performance of your shop vac.
The Bauer Cyclone Dust Separator Kit for 5 Gallon Buckets attaches to your shop vac to separate heavier debris and particles before they can clog your vacuum’s filter. The Bauer dust separator uses the same cyclone technology as industrial dust collectors and high-end vacuum cleaners to improve vacuum efficiency, prevent clogging, extend filter life. It eliminates suction-robbing clogs by separating 99% of dust and debris. It increases the lifespan of vacuum filters and is suitable for wet and dry cleanups.
This thing pays for itself with just 2 filters.
