Built for the Jobs Other Vacuums Can't Handle

Oneida Air Systems' Dust Cobra® is the system of choice for both hobbyist and professional craftsman looking for a powerful, compact, and versatile dust control system. Its patented cyclonic design provides 3x higher airflow performance when compared to traditional vacuums and works to minimize downtime by virtually eliminating filter clogging and suction loss.

By combining the best features of a dust collector and a vacuum, the portable Dust Cobra is a hybrid system that can be used in nearly any application for general shop clean-up. Its high pressure intake makes it ideal for dust extraction from tools with dust ports 4" dia. and smaller (where standard dust collectors fall short) including sanders, buffers, edgers, grinders, band saws, scroll saws, chop/miter saws, routers, mini-lathes, and more!

Streamlined Integrated Cyclone Pre-Separator

Within standard vacuum systems, fine dusts can quickly clog the filter - reducing suction power and creating the need for expensive downtime for cleaning and/or replacement parts. That's why every good dust collection system needs a cyclone to remove waste from the incoming airstream.

  • Separates up to 99% of bulk debris and fine dusts from the airstream, containing it safely in the dust bin
  • Patented "V-Shape" cyclone design maximizes particle separation performance
  • Virtually eliminates filter clogging and significantly extends the lifespan of the filter
  • Rotationally molded from a lightweight, static dissipative, industrial-grade resin
  • Neutral-vane inlet and integrated air ramp minimizes inbound air turbulence

Dust Sentry alerts based on custom adjustable fill level
Adjustable Infrared Technology

Automatic Dust Bin Level Sensor

Oneida Air Systems' patented Dust Sentry™ takes the guesswork out of using your vacuum! This adjustable optical sensor detects when the drum has been filled to a pre-set level and flashes a high visibility strobe light to alert you when it's time to empty.

Capable of detecting nearly any type of wet/dry material, the Dust Sentry will significantly streamline your workflow and put you back in control of how long you can keep working.

17 Gallon Steel Drum w/ Bag Hold Down

The Dust Cobra features one of the largest waste containers available for a wet/dry vacuum at a whopping 17 gallon capacity! Intended for contractors and other professionals who need the freedom to work without worrying about constantly emptying their vacuum.

Waste disposal is made fast and simple thanks to the Dust Cobra's integrated Bag Hold Down System that uses vacuum pressure to keep plastic bags open inside the drum. When you know the drum is full (thanks to the built-in bin level sensor), simply remove the lid, tie off the bag, and lift it out!

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I clean the dust collector's cartridge filter?

This can vary widely depending on how often your dust collector is used and what kind of dusts it's exposed to but you should typically clean it only once you've noticed a considerable drop in suction performance. In our experience this can be around once per year, but with heavy amounts of sanding it could be as often as once per month.

A meter such as our Filter Efficiency Gauge can also be used to monitor pressure buildup and inform you when the filter need's to be cleaned.

Why does the bin level indicator flash when the bin is empty?

Because the Dust Sentry works via an adjustable infrared sensor, this can sometimes trigger false positives with an empty container because of the reflective surface at the bottom of the steel drum.

This can be resolved by painting/coloring the inside bottom of the drum so that it is no longer reflective enough to affect the sensor.
