Scheppach HD2P 2 in 1 5Ltr Dust Extractor 230V
Great bit of kit
I am a hobbyist who makes things from wood, bone, antler etc etc. A lot of the work is carving (power carving) the materials and sanding. I was looking for a compact dust extractor that would work with a mobile work station to eliminate most this dust at the source and couldn't be happier! 99% of the time it is all fine dust it is used for and seems to work great and the smaller 5L capacity isn't a problem but have also found it to work well with electric planner collecting wood chips but would expect the 5L capacity to be an issue if collecting chipping's 99% of the time. I was impressed with the delivery time, ordered on a sunday and delivered to my door tuesday morning.

Ok but no fine dust like mdf
I was pretty satisfied with this at first, especially being so compact. Have had one for about 15 months now. I soon got tired with carefully wrapping the hose into position and cut away some of the flanges to make it easier to pack away. The filter bag has quite an open weave though and there are lots of gaps in the outer casing so fine dust like plaster or mdf is likely to get blown all over the room. I also found the on/off button got temperamental after about a year's occasional use, so back to my trusty Dyson until I can afford one of the new Festool systainer types, though that has a limited power take off of only 1200W so nothing seems to be perfect quite yet!

Great piece of kit for price
Having used an old Aquavac as a dust extractor, for a couple of decades, it was time to retire it with something that would fit neatly into my van and would be less cumbersome on site whilst keeping dust and debris to a minimum when cutting and drilling.
I have given it full marks (even on reliability) as I know that , with Screwfix, if anything goes wrong during the warranty period, they will sort it without quibbling.
There are much more powerful extractors out there but for what I want, this is everything, and then some.

Excellent working for the DIY for domestic use. Compact and manageable. Bit noisy. Would like them to make a side slit where the electric plug wire can be placed so that the lid can be closed while using.
