Continuously High Airflow Performance

Your dust collector should perform at peak efficiency at all times to ensure the health, safety, and quality of your work. That's why Oneida Air uses only the highest quality motors with our dust collection systems. Far superior than the cheap, foreign imported motors used by other manufacturers, our industrial-grade motors are built to last a lifetime.

  • High-efficiency U.S. Bluffton® motor custom-tooled for Oneida Air Systems
  • Delivers up to 600 Actual CFM - ample airflow for any woodworking tool
  • Industrial-grade brushless motor designed for continuous duty
  • Low pitch noise level provides ideal operator comfort

Streamlined Integrated Cyclone Separator

One of the four tenets of good dust collection is using a cyclone to remove waste from the incoming air. Once you've experienced the benefits of cyclonic separation there's no turning back!

  • Separates up to 99% of bulk debris and fine dusts from the airstream, containing it safely in the dust bin
  • Significantly extends the lifespan of the filter and reduces time needed for filter cleaning
  • Uniquely tall cyclone design maximizes particle separation performance
  • Neutral-vane inlet and integrated air ramp minimizes inbound air turbulence
  • Ideal for direct flex hose connections to tools

High Quality & Serviceable Filtration

The Mini-Gorilla system uses hospital-grade, HEPA cartridge filters that are specifically designed for dust collection applications - providing unbeatable airflow and filtration performance.

  • HEPA filter media rated as 99.97% efficient at 0.3 microns
  • 3rd party tested and verified by an accredited independent lab
  • Requires zero pre-loading; works at peak efficiency right out of the box and after every cleaning
  • Wide-spaced pleating and non-stick PTFE membrane coating facilitates quick and easy maintenance
  • Vacuum hose port lets you clean fine dusts released from the filter without disassembling the system
  • Durable fiber construction and wire cage reinforcement maximizes longevity
  • Equipped with patented Flame Guard™ arrestor to satisfy future planned fire safety codes

Lightweight, Compact, and Highly Mobile Design

We've optimized this system for smaller workspaces where the dust collector from tool-to-tool so we've molded the cyclone, fan housing, filter plenum, and the drum from an industrial static dissipative resin.

  • 30% lighter than the nearest competitor system at only 85 lbs.
  • Small footprint and low height saves valuable space within the shop
  • Mobile tripod stand provides maximum stability and easy access for movement
  • Large 3" locking casters roll easily over obstacles and won't scuff your floors

Easy-to-Handle Large Capacity Dust Container

The waste container of the Mini Gorilla is a highly reinforced, lightweight, 22 gallon drum with non-marking casters. Easy to dettach and empty, the Mini-Gorilla's drop-down dust bin lets you work with maximum efficiency.

  • Large 22 Gallon capacity provides enough storage for hours of work
  • Dust level viewing window lets you see when the drum is getting full
  • Three quick-release latches lift the drum off the ground while system is in use for higher mobility
  • Bag gripper system lets you put disposal liner bags within the bin for quick and easy waste disposal
  • Features three free swiveling caster wheels and easy-carry handles for dumping

Frequently Asked Questions
Can this be used for wet applications as well?

No. This system is designed for use collecting dry materials only.

How do I connect the Mini Gorilla to my tools?

The Mini-Gorilla's inlet measures as 5" on the outer diameter, making it ideal for accepting raw (uncrimped) ductwork fittings over the inlet such as reducers and quick-connects. Crimped ductwork will not usually fit into the inlet but can be done when necessary and secured in place with foil tape.Flex hose can also be pulled over the inlet but will generally be a tight fit. Heat (such as a hair dryer) can be gently applied to the molded inlet to make the resin more maleable and allow for easier hose fittings - exercise caution when heat-treating so as not to damage the system. OAS highly recommends our 5" Quick-Connect fitting (item #DQK050000) for making direct flex hose connections with the molded Mini Gorilla.

How is the filter cleaned? I don't see the typical hand crank.

The use of hand cranks that "beat" the filter can damage the filter's pleating material overtime, so our systems are not built with such systems. The filter on the Mini Gorilla dust collector is easily cleaned by blowing compressed air from the outside of the filter. This knocks the dust off of the pleats (which are coated with a non-stick, PFTE membrane) and the resulting fine dusts falls to the bottom of the filter. At the bottom of the filter is a 2.5" port. Simply open that port and the dust waste can be emptied into a bucket or connected to a shop vacuum for easy disposal. This can all be done without having to remove the filter from the system and helps maintain the filter's lifespan for years to come.

Is this product compatible with Quick-Clamp Duct?

Yes but you will need to install a Machine Adapter into the inlet first. These adapters are smaller on the raw end than traditional ducting so that they can slip into the ports on systems and tools i.e. a 5" Quick-Clamp Duct Machine Adapter will measure ~4.9" O.D. on the raw end.

What dust can be collected with your collector?

Oneida Air Systems' dust collectors are designed and tested for wood and wood dust. They can and have been be used effectively for various other dusts and chips such as drywall dust, paper dust, agricultural dust, metal chips and other forms of debris. The customer is however, cautioned that some common materials when cut, ground or processed by machinery may become very dangerous: highly toxic, flammable, or deflagrable and explosive and they should therefore ensure that you use your particular use of a dust collection system in accordance to national, state, local, NFPA, OSHA and all other applicable codes.

What's the difference between the 110V and 220V models?

There is no difference in airflow performance between different voltage variations of the system. You should purchase the unit that best matches the power requirements of your shop. In general, the 220V model will have lower running amperage than the 110V, which can be an advantage for operators using multiple tools on the same breaker.See the product's specifications or call 1-800-732-4065 for more information.
