I need some sort of dust collection for my small shop,I’ve waited too long thinking some day I’ll get a 2HP or a bigger DC but I just don’t have the room for it,so now I’m getting a dust deputy to connect to my Ridgid shop vac.
My question to those of you who own DD,does it come with two pails,an inner pail/outer pail?l understand that the inner pail is to contain the saw dust but what’s the outer pail for?I always thought there was only one

bucket for the whole thing.my other Q,any regrets?

The Dust Deputy Deluxe, comes with 2 buckets. It makes it easier to take the cyclone top off one bucket and immediately attach it to the second bucket to continue using it before dumping it out.

Highly recommend it. I had one before going up to my 2HP HF DC and the super Dust Deputy.

EDIT-
If your doing any collection on a jointer/planer the little buckets fill up FAST! which is nice to have 2 buckets if you can’t get into a real DC unit.

distrbd,

My shop is pretty small. You can view it in my profile. a HF 2hp DC and a Super Dust Deputy in a 20’x17’ shop doesn’t take up much more footprint as a ridgid shop vac and a dust deputy. Maybe something to think about. It’s 2x the cost of what your thinking about but MUCH more cfm and dust collection.

I have one connected to my Ridgid. Pretty effective little unit.

Per the instructions, the second bucket is meant as a convenient holder for the first bucket. You permanently (more or less) attach bucket #2 to your shop vac using the hardware provided. Bucket #1 then sits in the other and has the cyclone attached. When full, it is easy to empty – take off the cyclone and lift bucket #1 out of #2.

Without something like this, it would be a PITA to empty a bucket bolted to the shop vac.

But as PLK says, a proper DC unit is more effective. I’ve got a Clear-Vue and wouldn’t go back to the DD. Although it comes in handy from time to time.

Thank you both,I understand a full size 2 hp DC with super dust deputy will be more effective than a shop vac /smaller DD but when you compare the footprint I don’t see how they both more or less could occupy the same space,unless a smaller drum is used but still that SDD looks huge:
