Laguna Tools has added features to its C Flux and P Flux cyclone dust collectors and added a new model, the X Flux 5, a single-stage collector with a 39-gallon drum on locking castors.
“The all-new X Flux 5 boasts a powerful 5-hp motor and impressive 1,823 cfm,” the company said in a statement. “Auto-cleaning of the HEPA filter is accomplished by double-paddles that sweep the filter every three minutes of system use in a clockwise and counterclockwise action. Remote and LED drum light are standard.”
“The X Flux 5 is geared towards fine dust and sanding where cyclones are not performing as well. Cyclones like heavier chips and the X Flux 5 would be better suited to handle fine dust, and it’s geared towards the upscale home hobby shops through the small pro shop,” adds Laguna’s Benjamin Helshoj in an interview with Woodshop News.
The X Flux 5 sells for $4,499.
Upgrades to the C Flux cyclone dust collectors include a dual-paddle filter cleaning design and a 46-gallon capacity on the C Flux 2 and 3 models. They also have a redesigned three-piece drum construction that require far fewer joints and fasteners for reduced assembly time, as well as locking casters. The C Flux models start at $1,999.
An auto-cleaning feature is now standard for the P Flux, available with 1.5-, 2- or 3-hp motors. P Flux models start at $2,899.
