You get what you pay for

The old saying, you get what you pay for applies to this Commercial Grade Cyclonic Separator steel pail Lid. As a result of engineering design, this steel pail lid is tough and durable and and outperforms the inexpensive kind made for saw dust.  The hose deflectors are made for wet or dry nasty stuff. For instance, they will handle anything from 1-1/2 inch gravel to raw sewage.    Consequently, this is the one of the most rugged cyclonic lids available.  In addition, the deflector hose adapters are universal, so you can use either for inlet or outlet.

Replaceable Parts

All the hardware on this cyclonic lid are replaceable. The lid is coated with a rust inhibitor.  The deflectors are universal and are easy to replace with just three screws.

The Flood Buddy

When your dwellings are flooded and clean up begins, use the Flood Buddy – Commercial Grade Cyclonic Vacuum Bucket to do the dirty work.   In other words, keep the muck out of your shop vacuum, use this Cyclonic Vacuum Steel Pail  as a pre-filter.  It removes 98% of all the water, mud, dirt, or dust allowing easy cleaning of your shop vacuum. In addition, this Cyclonic Pail was tested with the Ridgid WD19560 vacuum and the results were outstanding.  The Cyclonic Separator Steel Pail will work with any vacuum, however the higher the suction rate and flow rate the better.  Just make sure the inlet uses a 2-1/2″ hose.

Save your back

Shop vacuums are extremely difficult to empty of heavy debris.  The 7 gallon buck and handle make lifting easy and dumping just as easy.   In addition, cleaning buckets is a lot easier than cleaning out shop vacuums.  They are easy to dump and easy to wash out.
