    Yes Andy, they work as a pre separator, filtering out the large debris before it gets to your extractor.

    With all the talk of M class extraction, then your basically collecting your dust in a bucket and tipping it out ?

    No, not really.
    The function of a pre separator is to filter out the larger debris, the more hazardous breathable particles are collected by your extractor.
    So you’re not collecting hazardous material in a bucket! :)

    Imagine a 2-stage system.
    The pre-separator collects the big stuff which would very quickly clog your bag and filter.
    The M-Class vac has very good filters which retain something like 99.99% of the very small dust particles (which normal vacs spit back out into the air).

    I’ve ordered the one in the link, although it’s got mixed reviews and it says saw dust, I’m hoping it will be alright
