Vertical Shopvac & Cyclone Cart

I’ve got a mini cyclone hooked up to my shopvac. Moving them around is a huge pain in the butt and I didn’t have any storage for all of the tool attachments or hoses. So I made a cart for them. I didn’t want to go side by side because that takes up a larger footprint.

The final design holds all of my attachments, hoses, the cyclone, and the shopvac in a footprint that is about 8” deeper than the shopvac itself.

For those who are interested, I have a video covering the build and plans here:

Going vertical is a very good idea, especially for small shops like mine. And the possibility for storing all the addons is ideal too. So I will copy your idea with my thien-buffle setup. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Jay, great video, as always. I’ve finally find the vertical cyclone cart I’ve been dreaming of, thanks to you!

Keep up the great work!

Jay, really appreciate your taking the time to put together the video and information regarding your build. It will be very helpful for a future project in the shop.

Awesome design and great job on the video. I like the fact that every thing is so compact and to empty them you just slide them out.

Love it, Jay. Mine is currently in the same configuration, just minus all that wood stuff and plus a few bungee cords. I think I like yours better.

Hopefully you filmed it.

This is a must-build for anyone who’s been dragging their cyclone around with the vac!
