Topic tags/keywords: dust collcetion cyclone oneida question

I just finished running a 220 sub breaker in my garage for the new cyclone I purchased. THe cyclone is going to take 5 to 6 weeks to get here and I want to have all the plugs in before it arrives but the question I have it what type of plug does the 220 cyclone have?

Can someone send a photo or tell me if it’s the regular 220 plug or a 220 twist plug. I asked Oneida but they weren’t very helpful.

Thanks
Angela

I just use 15 amp 3 prong plugs on 220v stuff, but then I could be wrong. You know…the one with the sideways prongs.
Most times the cords may not have any plug so you can use whatever fits your outlet. Or, change the outlet to fit the plug. Crap shoot.

Mine came with a 15 amp 240v plug. But that was the 2 HP SDG model (and it was 5 years ago), some of the larger motors may come with a 20 amp/240V plug. It was not a twist plug. You might be able to download the owners manual for your model and find the info in there.

thanks for the idea. Wasn’t able to locate an owners manual online. The CServices was at least able to tell me that it comes with a 220 plug but didn’t know what type that was. I ordered their 3HP.

I guess I’ll just have to wait and see. Yeah the 15 amp plugs are very different from the 20 amp plug that I have on my Powermatice tablesaw.

Angela, you can see the owner’s manual. Go to the Oneida website and look at the model you have enroute. Down at the bottom of that page is a “technical specs” that you click, you should then see a link to the owner’s manual. When I looked at the 3 HP SDG, it shows that unit needing a 6-20P plug (that’s the 20 amp one). Also under technical specs, there’sanother PDF file called “technical specs” (duh!???). I tried to link the page and can’t get it to work…but that should have the stuff you need.

Thanks so much for locating that information. I had never seen that link until you pointed it out. That will help answer a lot of my questions before I actually get the cyclone.
