The advantage of the device above, compared to the Leevalley ones, is that it is cheaper and comes with the hoses and bucket already. Less work for the consumer... also, I think the water filtration system is probably going to be more effective at dust reduction than the cyclone system is.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks CapnHand,
I'm always looking for a better mousetrap and that looks to be a good one.

Well, no actually the Lee Valley items are priced in $ Canadian and cost slightly less (there's an icon in the upper right corner to convert to $US). They will fit on just about any garbage can so you probably already have what you need for a container. Who needs another bucket? Sometimes less is more.

As far as effectiveness, I can't say since I haven't used either one but going by the Amazon product rating, three out of five isn't what I'd call great.

cyclone filters

Cyclone filters are very effective. We use them at my work to filter silt out of water so that it can be recycled to continue to clean drains. I also figure that if you have to keep cleaning the water filter hoses then it involves more work. the good thing about a cyclone filter is that the mess in this instance would be dry and easy to dispose of rather than a wet sludge.

Keep it Black side down

Mick
