Bagless – I elected to not use a plastic bag in the collection drum, nothing wrong with the design but the drum isn’t that big and when the planer is feeding this drum is going to fill up fairly quickly and I don’t want to be fussing with a bag. I’ll get a much larger container probably 64 gallon with some much cheaper contractor bags and dump the chips in there for disposal. Also the supplied bags are about 10 inches too long, thick heavy bags though they did’nt cheap out on them.

Future Mod – I can see I’m going to have to modify this lid with the clamps to raise it up and hold it like you see on a lot of other collectors. Trying to hold up the lid while sliding the drum in/out is not overly difficult but is already annoying.

Tip – There’s a rubber seal on the top of the barrel that needs to be cut to size. I installed the seal then cut it 1/4 inch too long on purpose, removed then reinstalled allowing the slack to be taken up around the parameter and it fit perfectly.

Next up I just have to install the plug and fire this baby up! I’ll put my decibel meter on it to see how much noise it makes.
