We had one that was larger and attached to a trash can in the community shop I work in. Ours was hooked up to a 15” planer. It worked alright for smaller boards, but there was not enough suction from our industrial vacuum system to keep the 5” hose connecting the planer and trash can from filling with chips when planing wide boards. I think this type of system would work well with a high power vacuum and smaller power tools- if you bump up larger planers / joiners/ belt sanders you might want to look for a really cyclone system.

Anyway, that is my two cents.
