Upon arrival not too impressed by the quality of the dust collector, but figured why not give it a chance? I install kitchens and often I have to cut inside the house of my clients. I installed the bag and went about installing the kitchen. i forgot all about the dust collector until time for clean up, I went to get a broom and couldn't believe that the bag had contained almost all the sawdust. This thing really works well.
Works as well as should be expected. Just don't expect too much. In other words if you think this will prevent sawdust from getting in your shop or keeping an area clear of sawdust, think again. As my father in law would saw: "it catches the big part" (of the sawdust).
The dust collector seems to catch the majority of the saw dust created and is better than no system, however if it can be afforded I would reccomend a shop vac or other powered dust collector over this. However in a pinch the works fairly well.
Maybe I expect too much, but the bag makes only a slight difference. It does end the dust coming out the vac chute, but the dust blowing out the front,back,and underneath still requires cleanup after a couple cuts, which is what I was trying to eliminate. I love Bosch, especially the 4100. This is the only negative I've experienced.
