Dust problems CS70 EB
« on: November 12, 2019, 02:59 AM »
Hi members,

My Englisch is not perfect, but i try  ;)

I have a lot of problems with the dust on my CS70.
I use the CLT 26 E but this is not enough . I still have a lot of dust on my table and floor.
We use the Y-connector but when i feel the suction on the tubes, i am not impressed.

I cut mostly MDF and chipboard.

Somebody with the same problems ? What kind of dust collector do you use normaly for a CS70 ?

Thx !

The Y connector reduces suction too much. You need a high flow dust extractor. I have a CT26 on the 36mm hose and a Bosch Gas on the 26mm hose. If you can rig up an overhead blade guard/dust extractor it works even better.

I have had the CS70 for years now, not impressed by the dust collection at all. Always plenty of dust everywhere.

I have used my CTL22, CTL26 and CTL Mini with it. CTL26 works best because it had the best suction, but still dust remains. I have also occasionally used 2 vacs at the same time and that does improve the DC a lot, but still not 100%. Also, 2 vacs at the same time draws a lot of power, 4600 watts.
