I built a cart for my dust collector and Thien dust separator. The wheels on the stock dust collector aren’t very good and I added a Wynn Environmental filter which made it heavier and even harder to move. I wanted to be able to easily move the dust separator and collector together, so this is what I came up with.
I used 24” wide 3/4” plywood for the base. I removed the dust collector from its base and bolted it directly to the cart. The cart frame is 2”x6” and I notched the corners to drop the cart base lower to the floor – kind of like a mechanic’s creeper and by notching the corners I was able to get the wheels as close to the corners as possible.
Getting the wheels out to the corners and lowering the cart height made the whole thing much more stable than the original dust collector.
It rolls real easy now – I cleared out one corner of the shop to store it in and can roll it out as needed.
Thanks for looking.
