Overview

Owning a Dustopper means never having to worry about cleaning the inside of your wet/dry vacuum, or its nasty filter. Dustoppers new, low-profile design puts a whole new spin on cyclonic dust separation, and offers a faster, better, easier way to manage the dust and debris. For decades, most wet/dry vacuums have been based on a design where a pleated air filter is positioned inside the same bucket used to haul away collected dirt and debris. While much of what is drawn into the wet/dry vacuum is collected by its bucket, finer particles of dust will become lodged in the air filter, robbing the wet/dry vacuum of much of its suction power. Dustopper is designed to keep your filter clean, so you can spend less time cleaning up. Dustopper spins the incoming dirty air in a newly designed, and patent-pending chamber that causes more than 99% of the dust and debris to fall into a standard 5 Gal. bucket before reaches the filter. Simply lift the Dustopper from its bucket and carry collected dirt away for easy disposal. Dustopper is design so it can easily be removed from the box and placed into service within seconds. There are no holes to drill, no screws to tighten, and no sealers to apply. Simply remove Dustopper from its box, place it on a 5 Gal. standard bucket, and then connect it to your shop vacuum with the hose provided.

Questions & Answers

Which port is the inlet, which is the outlet? It doesn’t specify online or on the packaging.

Asked by: TileGiy
The ports on the unit are labeled. The top is the suction from the vac and the side is the pickup.

The description says it includes a hose, all the reviews on YouTube show it also brings an elbow. Can someone confirm?

Will it still work if I line the Homer Bucket with a disposable plastic trash bag?
Asked by: Liner
Yes, but the entire point of using it is so you don't have to use a bag. If you just want to use a bag, just put the bag in the vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add on to my CNC. I addes this to the top of a 2.5 gallon bucket. Does the trick. The filter in my 6.5hp vacuum stays clean. Very little dust and no wood chips make it to the vacuum.

I just purchased the duststopper , I hooked to my new rigid vac to clean out the inside of my delta table saw as a trial run . I filled the five gal bucket with saw dust . I than removed the top from the vac to look for content , There was maybe a half a cup of dust in the bottom of the vac with very little on the filler . Works great .

I haven't yet tried sanding. I advise building a cart to keep it stored above your vac for max efficiency or at least tie them together with a bungee to keep the bucket from falling over.

It is super easy to assemble and use. It works well and keeps nearly all dust out of my shop vac to keep my filter clean. The price is lower than competing models and with a smaller profile I had to give it a try. I'm glad I did.

Works by making my filters last longer and vacums up great. Easy to set up and use. I attatched a lid with a few screws as a stabilizing base for the bucket to keep it from falling over.
