"I originally ordered a Woodstar DC04 but after placing the order I was contacted by the distributor and advised the Woodstar was not in stock. The distributor then offered the Scheppach HA1000 as a no further cost to me replacement.
Having used this unit in conjunction with my 8" planer / thicknesser I am really pleased with its performance. It clears the waste material with ease.
I have only given 4 stars for reliability as I've had the unit for less than a month."

Review 2 for Scheppach HA1000 183m3/h Dust Extractor 240V
"I'm using this extractor with my small hobby CNC router table. the suction is very good keeps my work pieces dust free while the router is working, I use the adapters to size down so I can use a smaller flexible hose. the Adaptors do have a habit of falling out which I could imagine if you are using it with an electric plane or something would be an issue. Seems to handle MDF dust which is not mentioned in the manual but the filter bags do seem to get caked up but that does not seem to effect the suction and you can just carefully brush the bag now and then.
The over all size of this is much bigger than I expected, its around the size of your average kitchen bin so has a fair amount of capacity but fills up quicker than you expect.
The motor on the top does seem to get warm fairly quickly so it may not be advisable to use it for extended use which is why I have only given 3 stars for performance.
I haven't had it long so I have only given it 3 stars for reliability"

Review 3 for Scheppach HA1000 183m3/h Dust Extractor 240V
"I must start off by saying that ScrewFix are fantastic, their customer service is without parallel. Scheppach however is a very different kettle of fish. I have had a couple of their tools and they are rubbish. This item works fine within it's specs but the build quality is poor, after just a few months I picked up the machine and the motor cover came off when the lugs on the plastic cover gave way. The extractor is not frequently moved as it is permanently by my wood lathe so fair wear and tear is not relevant in this case.. Screwfix were great and I had a call from Scheppach within minutes of my call to Screwfix, I was sent a new lid that I had to fix myself; not a difficult job but it did involve removing electrical parts from the old one and replacing them in the new cover. Although not really relevant to this product I would add a precautionary note regarding Scheppach products; I have a table saw from the same company and although only having had very light use the worm drive on the motor shredded. A replacement machine was sent that very quickly developed severe arcing from the motor brushes which caused it to fail within a few seconds. Having been told to keep the original I set about stripping out the motors and making one good one from the two. I then set about ripping down some 12ml softwood and after cutting less than 2 meters the 'new' motor failed in exactly the same way. I must reiterate that ScrewFix have been extremely helpful but I would highly recommend steering well clear of Scheppach tools."
