I have the non-slider version CMS purchased primarily due to Milwaukee’s improved dust collection capabilities. Although some saw dust passes by the collection chute 75% is better than most CMS other than the Festool Kapex. For some reason Milwaukee did not place enough thought into providing D.C. adapters for the old sized dust exhaust to the supplied dust bag. In my application, the CMS is mounted on a bench with material support risers on either side and Kreg KMS8000 Trak & Stop System.

My method for connecting D.C. was though use of highly flexible 4” hose purchased several years ago at WW show. With a little force the flexible hose will conform to the dust chute outlet and with several wraps of 2” tape forms a very good seal. I am satisfied with dust collection and will not continue with a plan to enclose the CMS with a hood assembly, which would be quite large so as not to limit the saw capabilities.
