General International offers a new 1-hp portable dust collector, model 10-030CF, with a 1-micron canister filter.
“Mounted on a steel base with one swivel caster and two 7” wheels for smooth rolling around the shop, the new 10-030CF is an affordable dust collection solution ideally suited for small shops where portability and only single machine hookups are required,” General marketing and communications manager Norman Frampton says.
Sporting an all-steel frame construction, the collector is equipped with a 1-hp motor and a 10” spin-balanced impeller for smooth and quiet operation. It also comes with a 4” main hose inlet, a heavy-duty transparent reusable plastic collection bag and a 1-micron canister filter with a total surface area of 20-1/3 sq. ft., according to General.
A crank handle on the top of the filter activates an internal agitator, allowing the user to clean the filter from the inside without having to remove it and a safety switch with removable key that prevents unauthorized use of the machine with the key removed.
The portable collector weighs 67 lbs. and sells for $399.99.
