PRODUCT REVIEW The V-TUF M-Class MINI PLUS:


Bigger and better but still within budget

HAT constitutes harmful dust on site (and in general) can still be a matter of opinion for some. Although a careful read of the relevant


documents from the HSE should make it clear that most dusts should be treated with due care, fi ne wood and silica dusts – the ones most common on building sites - are considered very dangerous.


At the very least, workers should be protecting themselves and their clients by wearing appropriate dust masks and cleaning up and collecting dust at source (eg, from power tools) using at least an M-Class extractor.


I know from experience that it is easy to overlook dust collection and have only relatively recently invested in good enough extraction for my workshop and site needs. But I have spent a small fortune on dust masks!


The V-TUF M-Class MINI PLUS is recently launched and is a considerable upgrade on the original V-TUF MINI, which was a great entry level machine and very compact. Not to mention it was well within budget at around £80 - £100; not bad for an M-Class rated machine.


The MINI PLUS ups the budget to about £270, but the extra capacity and refi nement are, to my mind, worth the extra money. It is bigger, has a 20-litre tank capacity and has more refi ned features - which explains the extra cost - but it is also a genuine M-Class extractor that has all the features needed to collect the 99.9% of dangerous dusts that characterise the M-Class rating.
