Great machine for the price
Well powered and easy to set up. The metal uprights are a little flimsy, but they do the job.

So much better than that old shop vac
I love this machine. It is powerful and yet quiet too and so much nicer working in the garage without the noise of the shop vacuum system I was using. The garage is a lot cleaner with most of the duct going into the collector. Well worth the cost.

Packages arrived in undamaged condition, no missing parts and easy to put together (second pair of hands recommended). Works great, would buy again.

Almost perfect!
Very happy with this purchase and very happy with the performance.

Two things that I am frustrated with:

1. Dust ports take up additional space as they stick out beyond the base. Add another several inches for your dust hoses and you're giving up more shop space (which I don't have.) Not going to ding them here.

2. Only an OCD complaint but the housing between the filter and the bag sits crooked and it will drive me crazy forever!

Big wins for me are:

1. Noise is much much lower than I expected.
2. Lots of power!

Great product and highly recommended.

Keeps up with jointer and planer
Good value for the money. Keeps up with jointer and planer.
Filled the plastic bag 3 times so far and no complaints. The filter seems to do a good job No complaints about air quality. I shy away from using it as a vacuum as wood chunks impact the impeller which doesn't seem like a good idea.

This thing sucks!
Overall I am very happy with this duct collector. It has plenty of suction to leave the blastgates open on both my SawStop tablesaw and chop saw hood simultaneously. I had considered getting the larger 220v unit but I’m glad I went with this 110v model. It’s louder than I’d like it to be, but I’m always wearing ear protection in my shop so I suppose it’s not a huge deal. I will eventually built an insulated closet for it to sit in. Another thing I appreciate is that it fires up very quickly with almost zero spoolup time.

Easy set up
This was easy to set up and has plenty of power for my small shop. Received item with some small damage, but a call into manufacturer and received a replacement part within a couple of weeks.

I already have the smaller DC 650 dust collector ,and like it , but I intend on devoting it to only my planner . I wanted this larger model to handle the balance of my equipment .
Brad Van H on Jan 9, 2017
small start up shop. Seems like the best unit with the highest CFM and lowest micro filter... guess I'll find out after I put it to work.

Footprint small enough to fit into my small shop. Good dust collection for the size
Scott G on Oct 25, 2015
My previous dust collector died and I needed a new one. Did tons of research and this collector seems to meet my needs. Very happy with it.
Michael S on Aug 2, 2015
Added a planer and joiner to mu shop and needed more capacity for dust collection. Also, wanted to improve the quality - my previous dust collector was the bag type and too much fine particle dust escaped the bag.

How do I order new bags for dust collectors??
Robert W on Jun 27, 2016
Does anyone remember this collector being offered recently with remote control?
Alex B on May 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Really doesn't need to come with one, just run down to a box store and get a remote controlled power cord leave your equipment in the on position and plug it into that and use that remote, they usually have to plug in ports.
Did this DC come with bags?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it came with 5 bags.
Is there a retro vortex for my dc1100 collector?
Al E on Nov 27, 2017
What is the overall assembled height of model 1100VX-CK?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is 67 1/4 to the top of the canister and 69 to the top of the assembled handle.
How tall is this unit? The info on site says 39 inches...if the bag is about 30 inches and the filter is at least 25 inches...I believe that the dimensions are for the shipping box. I have a low ceiling in my new basement shop, 5'9", and the wife will not let me move in until I upgrade my dust collection.
Jay H on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 69 1/2" with everything assembled. Might be 70" if my eyes are playing tricks. Taking off the wheels gives you about 3-1/2".
How well does this collect for smaller tools that use hoses under 4 inch? Such as hand and benchtop sanders, etc. thanks
Pa W on Feb 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can provide only a partial answer. I dedicate this collector to my Laguna bandsaw (2 4" ports) and my SawStop PCS (1 4" lower port and a small port on the blade guard assembly). Using both ports on the SawStop, the table remains clear of sawdust; no lack of suction. I have not, nor would I consider regularly using only smaller hoses without first getting the OK from Jet because of the air flow restriction and potential overheating of the motor that might result.
Can the pleated filter be cleaned using water & a mild detergent? I have one which was used to collect dust from a brake lathe & it needs more than a vacuuming.
Barry M on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We've had ours for over a year and haven't needed to clean it yet. It still works like new. I'd be afraid to use water on it for fear of creating a paste with the debris left inside that might clog the ultrafine holes permenantly, Defininetly a question for Jet just to be safe. HT
What are the "base" dimensions of the 1100VX unit?
A shopper on May 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The metal base that the unit mounts on is 33-1/8" x 20-1/4". The actual footprint with the dust ports and 4" hose coming out is 40" x 32". This should give you 'just' enough room.
Does this dust collector have a remote control?
Tom N on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don’t have a remote for mine, not sure if one is available.

Any way to wall mount this unit?
Mark O on Mar 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, not easily. The vortex collector relies on gravity to settle sawdust down into the plastic collection bag, and when full the bag is extremely heavy and more safely handled as the unit comes configured. Smaller units that may be wall-mountable are available, but this is a big heavy piece of machinery designed to be used with the roll-around base.
How well does this work with 2 1/2" ports?
Frank M on Jan 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have only used 1-4” and 1-2-1/2” ports together on my router enclosure and fence. It rocks! If you only use 1-2-1/2” port that might not allow enough air flow for the Jet.
Does this item ship in one box?
Great Dome on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe it was 2 boxes. But definitely was not just one box. Filter in box by itself.
What's the difference between the bag and canister unit for a garage size shop?
Greg H on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I believe the canister collects finer dust particles than the bag. The canister also has arms which make contact with the filter on the inside. By spinning the handles on the outside of the canister, the filter can be cleaned without removing the top.
What is the impeller made of. Is it metal or a composite material?
Jim S on Oct 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Metal
Is the 1110 CFM rating with the 2 micron canister filter?
Dlcgrizzly on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have no accurate way to measure the CFM, but I’m guessing yes or close to it. I have this unit with the canister filter and I will give you an unscientific “it moves a lot of air.” I am very happy with it.

I paired mine with a ceiling mounted Jet 1 micron air cleaning system, and I like that, too. I just feel terribly healthy. 😎
What is the CFM for this model? I own one and it doesn't pull dust from my Jet Proshop II table saw.
Alex B on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Check the input side of the collector, the screen may be plugged with pieces too big for the screen.
What would be the typical connection to smaller tools such as benchtop sander, hand corded sanders, etc? I think some of my smaller tools are 1 1/2 hoses.
Pa W on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are adapters. I have two 4" runs and two branches off of each one on each branch that is reduced to
1 1/2" hose.
I am considering this system and one by Grizzly which is a couple of hundred dollars less. Anyone have any thoughts that the extra money spent provides more benefit?
Gary K on Jan 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: While I have no experience or knowledge of the grizzly model, I can tell you thie JET is worth every Penney. Very happy with it... craig
