Dust Right 750 CFM Mobile Dust Collector
Rolls from tool to tool to serve your entire shop—includes a 1-micron canister filter and built-in storage for hoses and accessories.
The Dust Right® Mobile Dust Collector rides on smooth-rolling casters to service all the power tools in most small shops. It features a large wire basket in the base for neatly storing your hose and nozzles, and mounting holes in the frame let you hang various Dust Right® accessories. This way, as you roll it around your shop, you'll always have the accessories you need close at hand. The dust collector comes standard with a high-quality 1-micron canister filter, which further contributes toward cleaner air in the shop. The crank-style agitator makes it easy to clean the filter—just rotate a few times to knock the dust off the sides. Plus, emptying the collector bag couldn't be easier, thanks to the convenient snap band ring. 750 CFM promises excellent suction for most any power tool.

Without question, a wood lathe creates more mess than any other piece of equipment. Unfortunately, the large shavings that are thrown in all directions by a lathe are also too much for any dust collection known to me.
I recently purchased the Dust Right Mobile Collector (plus the Dust Right Quick Change Tool Set #53733), which I use exclusively as a shop vac on steroids. Previously, I used a 5HP shop vac, connected to a Rockler Vortex separator, and held together by a bungee cord. I hauled this "system" around my shop, hoping one piece or the other wouldn't tip over, or the bungee cord slip down to the floor. Also, the 2 1/2" hose was so small, it easily got clogged with the large lathe shavings.
The Dust Right Mobile Collector is a godsend! It connects to a ceiling mounted retractable electrical cord. I can now sweep my entire shop by moving the dust collector no more than 15' in any direction, and the powerful motor and the 4" hose have no trouble getting my shop floor cleaner than its ever been.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone -- particularly anyone with a wood lathe!
I will say that I bought the 28' hose, and it fairly quickly developed some rather long slits, which did not please me. Rockler replaced it with a new 28' hose, and so far, I've had no troubles with the hose.

It took about 45 minutes from unboxing the pieces until I had an operational dust collector working in my shop.
I had no difficulties with the assembly, but I think a few hints on how the bag fits and where the band ring should ultimately sit would be a welcome addition to the instructions.
I should note I had to ream out the hole in the filter agitator handle. Out of the box, I could not get it to fit onto the shaft on the top of the filter. I did not want to force the handle on to the shaft by whacking it with a hammer or otherwise forcing it to fit. The aluminum handle made for an easy process. I think it should not be necessary to have to make such a modification to the handle of a new piece of equipment.
After assembly, I purchased a Rockler Dust Right® Quick Connector 4" Elbow fitting and installed this fitting onto the flange of the fan housing. Then I mated up the hose to the elbow. This fitting now allows the hose to swivel from side to side and miss putting the dust collector hose into the basket altogether.
I also purchased a few more fittings that allow the hose handle to interface with my belt sander and table saw. These fittings make it easy to take the handle and plug it into the port fittings and give me quick connections; I no longer have to attach the hose directly to any of my machines with 4" band clamps. Rockler accessories, like the Dust Right Quick Change Handle, make changing the dust collector from one stationary tool to another both easy and quick.
The unit comes with a 10-foot long cord, and that is sufficiently long enough to give the collector the range, with the hose, to reach any part of my shop. I am glad that Rockler put on a long cord. Rockler made its front handle so the user can wrap the power cord around it and secure the end of the cord in a clip.
I am fortunate to have a lovely flat wooden floor in my shop. As a result, the small casters work well in my environment. However, if I used the dust collector in my barn where the flooring is very worn and irregular, I can assure you I would be making a new base with industrial quality swivel casters.
The first machine I tested with the Dust Right® was my19-39 SureMax belt sander. This belt sander is capable of generating vast amounts of dust. The increase of cfm with the Dust Right® was immediately noticeable. The new Dust Right® 750 collector picked up virtually all of the dust generated by the sander. None of the sawdust I was used to seeing travel down the feed belt was present. Very impressive.
The next tool I tried was my table saw. The table saw exhaust port is 2 ½" in diameter. As a result, I needed an adapter to go from 2 ½" to a 4" diameter hose. The Rockler Dust Right 2 ½" to 4" Mountable Dust Coupler was what I needed. With this connection, the Dust Right 750 CFM Dust Collector performed quite well. While I noticed a minor amount of dust under the saw, the residual amount was far less than what I experienced when using a shop vacuum. Again, I was impressed.
The last test in my shop was using the Dust Right to clean up the rest of the shop floor and tools. I purchased a Dust Right Bench Nozzle and used this attachment to pick up the dust in the balance of the shop. The accessory is well made and has a stiff brush at the pickup end of the nozzle. I had an easy time cleaning up the floor dust and debris. It made quick work of the shop cleaning. I was surprised to see the sawdust that was inches away from the nozzle leaping into the air stream. This Rockler 750 CFM mobile dust collector has an impressive amount of air volume.
I liked the Rockler 750 CFM Mobile Dust Collector so much I decided to give it a permanent home in my shop. It is now in charge of the table saw, SureMax belt sander, jointer, and router table (soon). Besides the fact that this critical tool minimizes the detrimental effects of airborne contaminants, it was easy to set up, use, and change the replacement bag.
I think Rockler has a real winner in this tool. Anyone who purchases this dust collector will significantly benefit from the large variety of accessories offered by Rockler. That is a winning combination.

-Mobility of the unit is great. No issues with the wheels whatsoever.
-Quiet. You can have a conversation with it on and not have to wear ear protection.
-Assembly: pretty straight forward and simple.
-Not enough power. I’d have it hooked up to a 2.5” hose and a 4” hose. While using my Dewalt 5” random orbital sander, my hand was caked in sawdust. With my previous shop vac, my hand was clean. I could feel some air through the holes in the sander, but apparently they weren’t strong enough. With the 4” hose, it’s like a light breeze that really isn’t strong enough to suction much.
-Noise caveat: I hate the sound it makes when something is clanking through the filter. It’s like you put a metal belt buckle in the dryer and turned it on.
-Filtration: I purchased this really because of the 1 micron filter. I am still able to visually see a significant amount of dust on the air when using it and when cranking the filter to clean it.
I regret purchasing this unit. If I hadn’t thrown away the packaging, I would try to return it.
