“After introducing our Vortex Cone single-stage models four years ago, moving into cyclone technology was a logical transition and line extension,” Jet product manager Katie Davidson says.

Cyclone collectors separate the heavier particles from the sawdust, which drop into a drum for disposal. “Mechanical separation of debris from air stream means the filters last a long time and need to be cleaned very seldom. Because filters need to be cleaned so seldom, you maintain a higher and more consistent working CFM,” Davidson says.

The lineup includes the 1-1/2-hp model 717515 with a 20-gallon capacity drum (retail price: $1,050); the 2-hp model 717520 with a 30-gallon drum ($1,400) and the 3-hp model 717530K with a 66-gallon drum ($1,760).

They all feature direct-mounted filters, rather than being connected with a short length of hose, and a radio frequency remote control that operates up to 50 ft. The 2- and 3-hp models offer remote timer settings for continuous operation — at intervals of 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours — before automatically turning off.

Other features include caster sets on the collector and collection drums.
