Been in the market for a DC for my garage shop that doesn’t take up my space and is better than a traditional 1 stage unit. Came across a jet with the vortex cone and cannister. Looks almost new—seller agreed to $450. Want to make sure that is a good price.

Also to jet owners. If the cannister is removed, will it fit into an SUV ok or do I need to bring a trailer? What tools if any should I bring to disassemble?

What model Jet DC would help.

The whole thing can be taken apart if you need to. I think the question is if you want that dusty thing in your car or not.

I have converted an old DC with the jet filter and cone and it works great. Put a tarp in to load it on, no problem. Take some wrenches and a socket set for disassembly. I think the price is good.

does the cannister unbolt without tools? Looks like some knobs on the side might do the trick.

thanks for responses!

Yes for the knobs. Easy removal.

No input on the price, but the canister on that unit seems to be rated at 2 microns. That isn’t considered a tight enough media for most folks. The DC itself is a model that a lot of folks use and should serve you well.

That price saves enough from new to upgrade the filter if desired.

Well, I suppose. Amazon has that DC for $750, and you might have to add some tax to that (free shipping with prime). If he buys this one for 450, and then spends, say, $200 (+/-) on a new filter the savings of buying used don’t seem that much. Better, I think, to try the 2 micron for a short time and see if it does what’s expected.

I think the best filter jet uses is the 2 micron. So starting with this machine is the way to go. Mine works well, but I do plan to upgrade sometime.

Have your say...
