Product Overview

The Dustopper makes tackling the messiest jobs a breeze while also keeping your wet/dry vacuum free of dust and debris. Dustopper's specially designed chamber snaps onto any standard 5 Gal. bucket and collects more than 99% of dust and debris before it reaches your vacuum. This vacuum accessory keeps your filter clean and prevents the suction loss commonly caused by a clogged filter, now you can spend less time cleaning out your vacuum and filter and more time doing the work you love. With its low-profile design, the Dustopper makes efficient use of space, making it ideal for any job site, workshop or wherever you may need it. It is easy to set up and can be ready to go in under a minute, straight out of the box. No holes to drill, no screws to tighten and no sealants to apply. Simply remove Dustopper from its box, place it on a standard 5 Gal. bucket and connect it to your shop vacuum with the hose and 2 sweep elbows provided. Disposal is as easy as lifting the Dustopper from its bucket and carrying the collected debris away.

Didn't last long
Stop separating dust before I was done sanding two sides of a 6x6x10. Glad I had backup sleeve on.

    Perfect
    Does the work cleaner. Good to adapt on top of the shop vac becoming easier to move

      Great for diverting dust!
      Great product! Only issue is it’s tough to get the lid on. I suppose it has to be a tight fit to work. I just worry about getting the lid off when the bucket is full and getting dust everywhere.

      Amazing at pulling out the fine dust
      I am near the end of sanding 592 feet of 6" tongue and groove pine and I am very impressed at how much sanding dust the Dustopper pulls out before it gets to the shop vacuum tank. I'm doing sander>dustopper>drywall bag>pleated filter (still very clean).

        Fantastic concept
        Did not fit my "older" Ridgid. I went online in an attempt to remedy my dilemma and quickly learned that all the parts from my model were discontinued. Called Dustopper today and spoke with Michelle who was incredibly helpful and provided me the information on the part that I needed to get at Home Depot (HD) to make it work. This will make life easier dumping a HD bucket vice the Ridgid. On top of that it will extend the life of the air filter and consequently maintain a stronger suction.

          Great dust separator for your shop vac
          This thing really works to keep dust and chips out of the shop vac. When I empty it I am always surprised at how fine the dust is that it removed. 5 gal bucket fills up fast if you use a planer. I bolted ply to the bucket to stabilize it.

            Less Dust, Less Muss
            Set-up is easy, but I needed to make sure the hose was in alignment with the wet/vac or the unit would tip over. This reduces residual dust in the air better than just using a we/vac. I never had to clean my filter. It reduced overall clean-up.

              A pleasant surprise - something that works!
              Bought this along with a Ridgid 9 Gal Wet/Dry Vac and orange bucket this morning to handle sawdust in my garage/shop. Nothing else was needed to hook it all together. Did some vacuuming and ended up with EVERYTHING in the bucket and vacuum empty!

                Saves cleaning the filter and buying bags
                I bought this unit about a year ago and have emptied the 5 gal pail 5 or 6 times. It gets a lot of sawdust. I found plans on the Internet to stack everything above my Ridgid Vac. So the vacuum is still very mobile and has the same size footprint. I contacted Dustopper for some help and they got back to me quickly. I really like this device.

                  Works well
                  Works well to keep shop vac filter clean. Recommend mounting the two together to keep the dust bin from falling over constantly.
