I have my 735 hooked to a shop vac threw a Dust Deputy but when running boards I get a lot of wood chips blowing on to the in-feed table. I’m always wiping them away just before loading another board.
For you 735 owners, is this normal? I checked the output blower and it’s working so I thought I would ask you if that’s how yours is, and if not any idea why mine does this?

You might be creating back-pressure if the shopvac is not sucking enough CFM...

Bryan, you didn't say what size hose you are using on the 735. If it's the standard 2 1/2" hose necked up to mount to the 4" 735, you are creating too much back pressure. If your dust bucket is close to the machine, you could try using it without the vac. They used to sell a bag that would connect to the 735 outlet and you didn't need a dc or vac. The blower in the 735 should blow the chips into the bucket if it is close to it. Don't have any experience doing that, but heck you could try it to see if it would work. Couldn't hurt.

I use a dedicated Delta 1 hp DC ONLY with a 4" hose. Used to get a bit few chips on the bed when making deep cuts. Making shallower cuts like 1 /4 to 1/2 turn, seemed to help. Since installing the Shelix head, there's been no chips on the bed.

You should not be getting any chips. Remove the shop vac and hook up a bagh typo collect the chipos. There are ideas on Youtube on how to do it. All you really need is a dust bag and a 5 gallon bucket and a 4" hose to it.

I use my 735 with the 4" hose and barrel cover that was once offered by DeWalt. It gets attached to the open end of a 55 gallon barrel with only the blower in the 735 doing the transport of the chips. I never have chips collecting in or around the 735, unless the draw string on the fabric cover lets the cover blow off of the barrel. DeWalt discontinued this accessory for the 735, but Black & Decker still offers what looks to be the same item

I've suggested this before as a possible option, but no one has ever reported back whether is works or not for them. If interested, you might look into it.

This is an old homeowner size wood chipper bag. Not perfect but might be better than the shop vac, time will tell. I think it won’t be right until I get a DC and using a larger diameter hose. I think the small 90 degree elbow is hurting me.
yep. Can you try a straight piece?

The blower is sufficient to clear the chips and dust. Here are a couple of solutions I've found that are very simple. Each is a drum or box with an input from the hose attached to the 735, and a screened opening in the top of the box or drum. You can even put a bag in the drum since it's all positive pressure. The output of the 735 will very quickly clog your bag. You will need to make sure the drum or box is well sealed, at least closed with a number of bungi cords. I figure you want a window screened opening of a minimum of 30 sq. inches. Wider opening is probably better. Easy cleanup if you add a bag inside.

I think it was Nick who commented on a separate thread that the blower on the 735 can easily blow chips into the next zip code when unimpeded. I certainly can agree with that having had a hose come loose during a pass. ��. Tom’s solution should work equally well.

Nice setups, Tom...did you try all three before settling on one...? Which one worked best for you...? Thanks
