Buying a dust collector? 3 things you need to consider

Because you are reading this blog post I am going to go right ahead and assume that you are looking into buying a dust collector. Whether it is for your home work shop , factory, warehouse, or something else altogether, let me just say that it is a decision in which you won’t regret! In fact, if anything, you will probably be left wondering why you didn’t purchase one sooner. Like everything though, it is important to not make any hasty decisions and really consider all (yes I mean every single one) of your options in order to ensure you purchase a dust collector that is the best for you. There are many things which you will need to think about, but the most important of these are cost, quality and size. By setting your own standards and making sure these boxes are ticked you can guarantee you will love your new dust extractor not only when you first get it going, but for many years to come. Read on to find out more!


One of the first things you will need to do, before you even begin your research is to define a budget. Figure out how much money you can afford to spend on a dust collector and go from there. Give yourself a little wiggle room, but of course, like most things, we are sure you will be hoping for the cheapest the deal! Bear in mind you will also need to factor in costs such as maintenance and repairs, remembering that the higher quality the dust extractor is in the first place, it may minimise the likelihood of needing to get repairs done. While this may make the initial cost higher, something that is going to last for years is going to be money saved in the long run.


Now that you have a budget to go by you can really begin to do some in depth research on the different type of dust extractors that are available, and then decipher which one will best suit your needs. Like most things, there are dust extractors that range from below average quality, through to good quality, through to fantastic quality so it really does pay to do your research, not only dust extractors themselves but also on the companies that sell them. Obviously, we think we should be your first choice as all of our dust extractors are top quality and we can assist you in making the right choice!


You can get a small dust extractor right through to a massive industrial sized dust extractor so it is important to choose one that is suited for your needs. For example, if you work in a large factory with lots of excess dust and fumes present, you will need a large dust extractor which can cope with the amount of dust, however, this wouldn’t be necessary if you were working in a small room with only a minor amount of excess dust. Choose wisely. By talking with one of our experienced crew members we can help design the correct system, which fits your budget.

Overall, there are a range of dust extractors out there which are suited for a range of different situations so I can guarantee that there will be one that is perfect for you.
