The c|flux:2 is part of a series of Laguna cyclonic dust collectors that feature a horizontal chute designed to maximize airflow while improving the volume of air moved (measured in cubic feet per minute, or CFM). It comes with a high-frequency remote control, a 2hp, 220v motor that delivers as much as 1,740 CFM and a pleated canister filter made from 109 square feet of spun-bonded polyester. The filter provides maximum airflow and filters out 99.97% of particles between 0.2 and 2 microns in size. A handle attached to an internal flapper can be manually cranked 270° to dislodge dust from the filter.


An ingenious lift system quickly picks the 46-gal. drum up off the floor and seals it against the drum lid, avoiding the need for a flex hose. This design makes the unit more easily portable because the drum wheels don't contact the floor when the unit is moved. The drum lowers easily onto the wheels for emptying.

Sucks Like A Gorilla...
Had a 2hp Oneida, but had to sell it when I moved, as it was not portable. So far, the CFlux is working every bit as well, with the additional advantage of portability. Also, amazingly, my post filter bag is almost dust free, even after I agitate the pleats.
My only concern is, how long will the parts last? I had an older Laguna DC that blew capacitors. Hope that or something else doesn't happen with this one, cuz Laguna CS hasn't been the greatest, in my experience.

Works for me
I have a 2000 sq ft cabinet shop, usually 1 to 2 people working in it. I have piped pvc to locations that don't change and use 4" flex hose for those that do. We typically don't run more than two tools at a time and this handles the load fine. When it's time to assemble, watch the video and it will be MUCH easier than reading the manual.

What a machine
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase of the Laguna Cyclone Dust Collector. Although I have not had a chance to run the duct work yet, I have used the unit's portability and am very satisfied with the results. Great vacuum with good suction and versatility even as a portable unit. I can only imagine how much more I will like it once it is piped to each of my machines.

New gold standard
All Laguna tools are exceptionally well made and have outstanding performance. Their dust collectors are no exception. Laguna are the new gold standard of woodworking machinery, in my opinion.

Machine itself works fantastic. No issues at all. Buying process is horrendous. Manual is just as bad.
Works really good .suction is fantastic. Easy dust removal. The whole insuction book needs to be rewritten. Just not up to par for a machine in this price range. The instructions seem to be written for general information. My sawstop instructions is the gold standard. I would lastly stream line buying process. Laguna doesn't give any shipping info.had to wait 5 weeks for delivery.

I don't have experience with other dust collectors but I am very pleased with this one so far. My only issue is that the instructions are a little vague at times. I had two issues with the canister on the bottom of the cyclone. If was off center when I installed it. I called customer service and was told that the lid on the bottom of the cyclone was probably 90 degrees off and they would check the orientation for the port for a test gage on an assembled unit. (Lack of other instructions I had assembled lining up the welds seams). I changed it while waiting for the call back and problem was solved.

The second issue was probably not reading details. I put the plastic liner inside the metal insert (thinking pressure instead of vacuum). The top of the bag was clamped between the canister and the lid on the base of the cyclone or would have sucked into the blower.

The remote is a great feature but not unique to Laguna. The collection bin at the bottom of the cyclone is easy to remove and roll to a more convenient location to dump. Most others use a metal corrugated hose that are less convenient to open and doesn't allow the assembly to be moved as one piece.

Very pleased with the purchase
I ordered this unit just after Thanksgiving. It took about a month to arrive...a bit longer than I hoped for but no much can be done about that. The unit was well packed and arrived safely.
I tried to assemble by the instructions. For the most part they are fine, but the section on assembling the container top to the bottom of the cyclone didn't seem to make sense. The tag bragged about the "ingenious design", but it didn't want to line up. I gave up for the day and came home and located the assembly video on Laguna's web site. What I discovered is that the collar on the bottom of the cyclone is meant to rotate (hence the "ingenious design"), but that mine had been painted or power coated so that it wouldn't move. Once I understood that, I used a utility knife to break the bond and the rest was easy. Without that glitch, the assembly took about two hours for two people. (I could have done most of it alone, but they tell me drinking beer alone can be a bad sign.)
I had my electrician come in and install a 60 sub-panel in the area where my dust collector, table saw, jointer and planer are located. I piped it over to my chop saw station yesterday and operated the unit for the first time. It is quieter that the shop vac cyclone rig I've been using and there is plenty of power. I will add more info as I start to integrate with other pieces of equipment, but so far I'm impressed.

Overall very nice
I've had the dust collector for about two weeks now and I'm very impressed with how it is performing. The drum system is great, it has a nice volume and is very easy to empty when needed. At any given time I'm running a CNC, two 12" disc sanders (with dust hoods) and a table saw. No problems and the filter efficiency seems great with zero dust collecting in the bag under my filter. The only cons are minor refinements to the assembly of the unit..

Worth every penny
I've bought a lot of tools over the years but never have I purchased one of the caliber of the Laguna C-Flux. It was packaged extremely well and carefully and every part was there and individually wrapped. Through the process of assembly I was amazed at how well designed everything is and the very high quality of all the parts. Every piece fit exactly as it was designed and the overall quality and workmanship is wonderful. I am very pleased with the operation and it does everything as advertised. Next time I'm in the market for a new piece of equipment I will definitely give Laguna tools strong consideration and will probably buy from them again.

BEST ANSWER: no not available. the inlet can be positioned 30 degrees to left 60 degrees to the right facing the inlet
Can anyone comment on what sound db they're getting from the 2hp 220v version c flux? Think Laguna says 74db but wanted some customer experience. Thanks
Keith R on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have one in my two car garage and it sounds like a jet but my old one stage system was almost as loud but in a different way.. Personally I think any 2hp+ cyclone systems will be loud unless they are enclosed with acoustic foam.. When I'm working alone I always wear ear protection. When working with friends I do not and you do get used to it but you absolutely have to raise your voice in order to have a conversation. Ultimately I plan to enclose the system. Also to note when running my CNC machine and the dust collector, it seems that the router (when cutting material) is slightly loader than the dust collector.
Doesn't this thing come with a plug? Maybe I'm missing something?
Bill H on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't. I was surprised also
What is the electrical cord length on the model C/Flux 2hp unit? Thank you.
Jim M on Sep 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with a 6' cord and no plug. I used a 3 prong twist lock, same as all the 220 tools in my shop. I have had the unit for about 9 months and have been very happy with it.
Laguna's website lists this model as 18.8 amps, yet it's listed here as a 12 amp full load with a 14 amp motor. Does this machine draw 12 or 18.8 amps?
George H on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The motor name plate on mine is 2HP / 14 amp. My understanding is that the motor can draw 14 amps continuously and not overload. Actual load will depend on how much air is being moved, so in actual operation I would expect the draw to be less than 12 amps unless you are using the full line size and not reducing to 6". On startup the amp draw can exceed the name plate amps for a few seconds to allow the equipment to get up to speed and the breaker should be set for this initial draw. I would guess that the 18.8 amps is the short term max load and is used to specify the circuit breaker. I have a 20 amp breaker for my dust collector and have not had any issues with a trip.

Summary - In my opinion, do not use the 12 amps to size your supply, use the 18.8 amps. Equipment manufactures are inconsistent in their specifications and should either say to use local code for the motor amp rating or specify the breaker size to be used. Giving multiple motor amps and not defining how they should be used causes confusion. In any case you should be able to call the manufactured and they should be able to tell you what size breaker to use and you electrician can then size the wire according to the distance.

I hope this helped.
Do you have to have an electrician install the plug?
William E on Jun 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Installing the plug is fairly easy. But I needed an electrician to extend my 220 volt service. I have other tools (table saw & jointer) on 220 but need to have a dedicated circuit for these and the dust collector. Initially thought I could wire this but after watching the electrician, glad I didn't mess with this.

As an aside, the dust collector works really well. A big upgrade from the Jet 1 1/2 HP that totally quit on me.
I understand that this unit has its own start/stop switch and remote. If I want to couple this with an ivac automated dust collection system do I have to open up the electrical panel and bypass the start stop and hard wire the motor so it will kick on & off with the ivac system or is there a different way? Has anyone done this?
Tanner T on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: this answer is from Ivac:
Dear Customer, the following is a method that has been used several times in the past to interface dust collectors that are fitted with Magnetic Switches to the iVAC Pro System.
Since the iVAC Pro Switch purely turns on, or turns off the AC mains power, it has to be inserted in series with the power cord from the Magnetic Switch to the Dust Collector motor.
In the case of the Laguna C Flux 2HP the start up surge currents will be in the order of 70 to 80 Amps and therefore the actual switching of the power has to be performed by means of an ‘iVAC Contactor’.
The ‘iVAC Contactor’ https://ivacswitch.com/ivac-contactor. is in turn controlled by an iVAC Pro Switch S11515-A-NA.
The iVAC Contactor is not carried by all dealers; however can be obtained directly from the iVAC web site www.ivacpro.com if necessary.
To operate the system the Laguna magnetic switch must first be turned on. From that point on the iVAC Pro System will take control.
Note. It is advised that any changes to the wiring between the magnetic switch and the motor be performed by a licensed electrician.

Please note that at the present time iVAC is in the development phase of an iVAC Pro Switch that will interface directly with the Magnetic Switch and this will, remove the need for the iVAC Contactor and wiring changes.
It should be available in Q3 of 2017.
