Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken I purchased this in March 2021 and really like it. It separates all but the very fine dust, and makes dumping sawdust and shavings a breeze. Unfortunately today when I went to latch it onto the bucket, it cracked. I contacted support and it only has 90 days warranty. I am about 6 weeks beyond warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product,poor performance, broke easily I bought this item and a Home Dept 5 gal pail, so their would be no compatibility issues. I also watched a number (6 or more) of guys singing the praise of this item. The first time I took the dust collector of the HD bucket the plastic split/crake beyond repair. So now I’m stuck with another useless piece of plastic junk. Which is a seventy dollar lesson dollar lesson learned. Spend your money on a dedicated vac for dust and chip collection, you’ll be money ahead, and definitely do not invest effort into building any type of cart or enclosure, it will be waisted effort and material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves cleaning the filter and buying bags I bought this unit about a year ago and have emptied the 5 gal pail 5 or 6 times. It gets a lot of sawdust. I found plans on the Internet to stack everything above my Ridgid Vac. So the vacuum is still very mobile and has the same size footprint. I contacted Dustopper for some help and they got back to me quickly. I really like this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super service! I bought this 2 months ago. A part of the lid burst when closing it. I believe that the product was exposed to extreme cold for too long and damaged the plastic I contacted Duststopper's after-sales service directly and Ms. Melissa Paquette, the Office Manager, answered me immediately and sent me a replacement part. Their service is truly Platinum level.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Brittle I have been using this for a couple of months and was very impressed with the results. While not perfect it does collect a majority of the dust. However, it is far too brittle to be worth the money. The Dustopper fell off the top of the bucket ( while removing it ), hit the concrete floor and cracked, taking a chunk out of it. Would not recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, Super Easy Picked up one of these to extend the life of my shop vac dust bag/filter and it works great. I attached it to a Home Depot bucket, and zip-tied the bucket handle to the handle on my shop vac and now the whole setup rolls like it's one continuous unit. Collects lots of sawdust and pieces and is easy to empty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Customer Service I had just tried the Dustopper and wanted to see if it was collecting. I took it off and when I put it back on the pail the second time the tab busted and it cracked the lid. I wrote the company and they quickly replied they would send me a new one. You can't ask for better customer service than that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for diverting dust! Great product! Only issue is it’s tough to get the lid on. I suppose it has to be a tight fit to work. I just worry about getting the lid off when the bucket is full and getting dust everywhere.

Hello. I bought one dustopper today and was wondering if it should be used only to suck saw dust and other fine particles or if it is also suited to suck larger chips and debris? Thanks

Asked by: Pierre
It probable is acceptable to vacuum bigger pieces of debris. I used it for saw dust and small wood chips also used it with a grinder to remove thinset mortar without issue.

Will this work with the RIDGID NXT 45L 5.0 Peak HP Wet Dry Vacuum without any extra adapters?
