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

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

Asked by: Fern
Mine came with a 90 degree elbow. I then purchased a 90 degree brush attachment from the blue store so I would have two right angles to make stacking easier.

I know it doesn't come with 90 deg elbow due to the photo on HD website today 1/6/2019. My question why most people got it on last year 2018 have the elbow and it show on the box, does it come with 2 versions?

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.

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.

High Efficiency Dust Separator, 12 in. Dia with 2.5 in. Hose, 36 in. Long is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 524.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reusable easy to use effective plastic dust capturing device! Fit perfect on Home Depot mat... Great reusable easy to use effective plastic dust capturing device! Fit perfect on Home Depot matching orange bucket. Quick easy set up and within minutes was capturing debris. Prolonging shop vacs main filter life will quickly justify expense of cyclone and save time cleaning vac drum. Attaching cyclone to shop vac used as central home vac has prolonged emptying vac drum and filter life greatly and kept another filter out of the trash. Because of lighter debris, mostly dust, adding second five gallon bucket below first creating a deeper space captures even more dust making the cyclone even more effective. Hose, elbow and cyclone device fit together well and was easy set up. Cyclone is more flexible than expected but is strong enough to perform well. Vac suction draws cyclone down whenever intake is restricted by normal vacuuming. After over two months use Cyclone has performed as expected. Satisfied and recommend for effective pre-filtering and prolonging filter life of often used shop vac.

Found Dustopper via google and youtube, and ordered from HD for ship to store. I really like the included short section of hose. Built a mobile cart that holds a shopvac and mounted an additional 5 gal bucket (drilled a few holes near bottom to allow easy removal of second bucket), attached Dustopper to a homer's bucket and placed it inside the mounted bucket. The whole setup is mobile and works like a champ for primary shop cleanup. I no longer have to deal with clogged filter or even touch the shopvac, just unclip the dustopper, pull out and empty the bucket. Very happy with the purchase and will bee adding one to my sanding station.

After checking out many other options, including a few diy options, I decided I waited way too long. I was tired of cleaning and replacing filters. The dustopper would be my first choice to try to solve the problem. I really didn't think it could work well, after all it was much smaller than others and so much lower in price. Wow! the search is over. I read a few reviews that complained of loss of suction. Yes there is a small loss, but some units collapse buckets or require removing clamps to empty. this is so simple to empty and has completely eliminated cleaning the shop vac filter. At first I used the series of gates to switch between the table saw, miter saw, planer and joiner. That was causing way too much loss of suction. It was easy to switch hose connections without the gates, and things worked well. I have a small shop and a smaller budget, so large bulky pricey systems were out of the question. THIS WAS A GOOD DECISION. I am very happy.

I was tired of cleaning filters. This product is easy to setup and use. Does a nice job. But I would recommend building a cart for the shop vac and the dust separator. See my design.

Trying to keep my sawdust out of our home has always been a problem for a weekend woodworker, without a dust collection system. Saw some neat builds of other products and wanted to create my own from their basic design. I liked the example submitted to WOOD issue 259 as a starting point. Tough part was the ABS/PVC fittings to match up to the Ridgid shop vac, found the 2" rubber elbow with hose clamps (plumbing department) attached fit pretty well without the hose clamp. Great suction of the shaving from the holes cut into the plywood shelf design. Didn't know about the #dustopper pictures in Instagram, check them out before you build. Product performs as listed and much better than I expected and MADE IN THE USA. Keep up the good work Dustopper and thanks to HomeDepot for bring this product to the market and believing there are other less expensive ways to help control your shop dust.

This is a wonderfully simple yet thoughtful and effective product. It's been working great with my setup (my shop vac holder design copied from others). And customer service has been super responsive and helpful when I was looking for additional elbows to work with my setup.

I needed some sort of dust collection system, after seeing videos and reviews I bought a dustopper, Rigid Vac, and of course a Homer bucket to complete the system. I've had it for about a month now. It really works great. Just a couple little things I experienced is, one it doesn't really snap on to tight to the bucket, I would have thought it needed to be tighter for a better seal, the second thing is the noise, it does make a whistle/whirling type noise but I always have ear protection on anyways so it doesn't bother me at all. Maybe some type of rubber o ring around the top of the bucket? I don't know maybe try a few things. It does work exactly how it says it does, maybe better! I love it!

I needed something with a small footprint as I have a small workspace and it is ideal. It works very efficiently and only a small amount of fine dust makes it to my shop vac. I recommend it.
