There are a lot of Dust Deputy vac carts out there. I did not like that that’s all they were, there was no other use for them and they take up valuable floor space in a small shop. I also don’t like the idea of fighting with the bucket lid and hoses every time you need to empty the bucket. This is my answer. The cart surface is 2’x3’ giving me a nice work surface. It’s 36” high like my bench and air compressor cabinet. The dust deputy is protected in it’s “cage” so it can not be damaged while moving things around. It is fixed in place and never moves. It empties into a pull out box in the chamber below. It has 1.7 times the capacity of a 5 gallon bucket. i used a router to recess the handle on the container. The container is just slightly smaller than the compartment. I used weather stripping on the top edges of the container to keep dust from getting outside the container while in the compartment. I used a 15 gauge 15’ extension cord that connects into the power box on the outside. There are two live outlets and a switch to the outlet inside the vac compartment. I have a 110 CFM fan inside the vac compartment that is on continuously to vent the heat. I use a remote switch from Fast Cap to turn the vac on and off. This has worked out very well. There is even a wrist band so you can keep the switch real handy. The vac is connected to the Dust Deputy with 2” PVC pipe. This has worked well in all regards. I have a nice work surface, the dust collection works well, the ease of On/Off with the remote switch is great and the vac is muffled.
