Here are a few things that you need to know:
- The blast gates open and the vacuum starts automatically when the tool is turned on
- It takes 15-20 seconds to spin up to full speed (important for the miter saw/panel saw especially)
- It runs for several minutes after the latest tool is shut down
- It's LOUD. Hearing protection is recommended
- DO NOT TURN IT OFF, EVEN IF THE NOISE ANNOYS YOU
- The floor sweeps trigger it automatically by turning the timers. The sweep will remain open for the period of time on the timer. You CANNOT turn the timers backwards or they’ll break.
- If for some reason you need to do any sort of service to the machine, the disconnect handle on the left side of the closet MUST BE pulled first to do so safely.

Emptying Drums And clearing filters
The dust collector has two drums for major sawdust and chips. a gentle brush system inside the long vertical filter canisters is for removing any built-up dust from the filter pleats. If you do need to change bags or otherwise do something with the Dust collector , you MUST TAKE THE FOLLOWING STEPS, in the order listed, to do so safely. The machine can/will hurt you if you are not careful. Safety measures: To avoid damage to your eyes and lungs, always wear safety glasses and a respirator when working with the dust collection bags.
Once you’re ready to place the system back online, perform these three steps in reverse.
Emptying the drums:
Empty the collection drums when they are three quarters full or less. If the drums become overfilled, the dust will be sucked into the intake barrel and passed through to the canister filters. How quickly the drum will fill up is based on the type of work being done at the time: We have seen them fill up as quickly as one day. • Fine dust from a sander or table saw will slowly fill the drums. • Curly shavings from a planer or jointer will quickly fill the drums.
Cleaning the filters
To clean the filters, pull the red handles down all the way, then pull the black handles down and hook them in place. . Do Not force them. If difficult to pull, contact a Woodshop Team member
Note: Always make sure to leave the red handles in the up position to ensure that the brushes return to their proper position and do not restrict the filter.
