SETUP
Figure-1 Inventory
Before setting up your machine you need to
read and understand this user manual
completely.
The CX405 features four casters installed to
its base unit for easy mobility. If you want to
use the CX405 as a stationary tool, do not
install the casters and find an ideal spot
where your dust collector will most likely be
positioned.
Consider your complete work environment
before placing your machine in the ideal
spot.
7
PROPER GROUNDING
Grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce the
risk of electric shock.
CX405 is for use on a normal 220 volt
circuit. Make sure that the machine is
connected to an outlet having the same
configuration as the plug. If an adaptor plug
is used, it must be attached to the metal
screw of the receptacle. To prevent
electrical hazards, have a qualified
electrician ensure that the line is properly
wired.
The dust collector should be wired with a
plug having 3 prongs to fit a 3 prong
grounded receptacle as shown in figure-2.
Do not remove the grounding prong to fit it
into a 2 pronged outlet.
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk
of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt as to
whether the outlet is properly grounded.
It is strongly recommended not to use
extension cords with your CX405. Always
try to position your machine close to the
power source so that you do not need to
use extension cords.
In case if you really find it necessary to use
an extension cord, make sure the extension
cord does not exceed 50-feet in length and
the cord is 14-gauge to prevent motor
damage.

TEST RUN
Once you have assembled your dust
collector, it is then time for a test run to
make sure that the machine works properly
and is ready to use.
Remove all the tools used for assembling
the machine components. Walk around the
machine, ensure all nuts, bolts, and screws
are tightened and the machine is properly
assembled. Connect the cord to the power
source and turn the machine ON.

power switch immediately and disconnect
the cord from the power source. Investigate
if you can find out the problem with your
machine.
WARNING
Before starting the machine, make sure
that you have read and understood the
user manual and you are familiar with the
safety features of the machine. Failure to
do so may cause serious personal injury.

OPERATION
Operating the CX405 dust collector is very
simple and straightforward.
Make sure the dust collector is properly
assembled and worked during the test run.
Move the CX405 close to the machine and
use a proper sized hose connecting the
hose with its one end to the machine and
the other end to the dust collector.
Make sure the connections are secured
using hose clamps and connect the ducting
ground and the dust collector is ready for
operation.
WARNING
Do not use the CX405 for any other
operation other than collecting sawdust.
Failure to do so could result in
malfunction of the machine and may
void the warranty.
MAINTENANCE
Maintenance on this machine is fairly simple.
Each time you use your dust collector, make
sure to properly clean the bags and take a
quick
inventory
of
your
machines
performance. Check the dust collector
regularly for loose bolts, screws, ensure the
dust collection bag has no tears, and ensure
all wires are in good condition.
BAG CLEANING
Empty the collection bag on a regular basis.
The machine will run more efficiently if the
collecting bag is emptied regularly.
Make sure the switch in the OFF position
and the cord is disconnected from the
power source.
Make sure you are wearing a respirator or
dust mask while emptying the collection
bag. The tiny dust particles in the air can be
inhaled easily and is very injurious to
health.
Since the CX405 is comes with Easy-On
collection bag, you do not have to remove
the clamp from the collection bag. Simply
Un-clamp the bag and empty it.
Re-install the bag and clamp it.
CLEANING THE CANISTER
(If using a canister)
The canister has a cleaning handle which
allows for easy cleaning of the canister by
simply rotating the handle. After each use,
rotate the handle at least one full turn. The
fins inside the canister will knock most of
the dust into the lower collection bag.
Make sure not to clean the canister using
water or compressed air which can damage
the filtration pleats of the filter. Always use
the cleaning handle.
LUBRICATION
CX405 comes equipped with shielded
bearings which are permanently lubricated.
So, there is not need to lubricate them.
WARNING
Do not make any adjustments while the
machine is running. Turn off the
machine and un-plug from the power
source before making any adjustments.
