Delta Portable Cyclone Dust Collector

DELTA® Power Equipment Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of benchtop and stationary woodworking machinery and dust management systems, is introducing a new 1-1/2 HP Portable Cyclone Dust Collector, Model 50-905 with state-of-the-art performance and a unique, convenient Chip Barrel System.

The new DELTA® Cyclone Dust Collector has a powerful 1-1/2 HP, 240V, 1 phase motor that produces 10 inches of static pressure with 810 CFM restricted and 1,638 CFM unrestricted (120V control box conversion kit, Model 50-907, is also available).

It is designed with cyclonic action to separate and force large particles into the chip barrel (32 gallon capacity) while small dust particles are trapped in the 1 micron canister filter and lower bag. The unique and convenient chip barrel system simplifies the emptying of the bag and repositioning the barrel with a leak free seal. The large bail-type handle lifts the barrel into position for operation – no tools required – and drops it for easy access and bag disposal.

The top filter cleaner crank rotates to knock down particles into the bag as they build up on the inside of the canister, prolonging canister life and efficiency. The user can connect up to two machines with the two 4-inch dust ports or remove the manifold to use as one 6-inch dust port to connect to a central dust collection system.

It comes with a remote control (batteries not included) which offers convenience for on/off and timer programming. The timer settings go from 1 hour to 15 hours, allowing the user to set the unit with confidence that, while away, the unit will clean the air in the shop and then turn itself off.

One new accessory that woodworkers will want is the Model 50-906 Dust Collector Floor Sweep Attachment so you don’t have to pull out a shop vac to clean your shop floors. Other available accessories include: 50-736 three-pack of dust bags for canister; 50-737 three-pack of chip bags for barrel; and 50-738 canister filter.

The new DELTA® 1-1/2 Portable Cyclone Dust Collector, Model 50-905, comes with a barrel, two dust port covers, one canister filter, two plastic dust bags, three plastic chip bags and four locking wheels.

It has a suggested retail price of $1299.99 and is backed by a Five-Year Warranty. For more information, customers can visit or write to
