Ok I used the JET Holiday sale and bought a DC-1100VX with the cyclone set up. Before this I was using a HD and Fein Turbo 2 with a cyclone set up.
Most of my tools are portable so they do not have 4” ports on them. The biggest reason I bought it was to keep up with my Dewalt Planer. I thought I could retire my above set up and use the Fein hose for my track saw.
I understand that DC works on less pressure but moves more volume correct? For now I am simply using a 4” hose that I was going to move from machine to machine which fine for now.
Problem is new set up just isn’t working as good as the shop vac and cyclone. If I take the 2”?? Fein hose and try and get it stuck to my open palm it just falls off. It doesn’t provide enough suction to work on the track saw or even the miter saw. It will barely clean up the floor.
Any advise? You can see that if I pull the plug off the other 4” port on the DC the bag fill right up and it is getting full air movement. Is using a DC and reducing the hose down to 2.5 or even 1 1/4 for a mitre saw or track saw not feasible?
I thought I ended my dust issues and now have an expensive item that only works well with the planer. Do I have an issue? Is anybody using a DC with these reducers effectively?
