Portable, Powerful, & Perfectly Designed
The NEW Molded Mini-Gorilla™ is one of Oneida Air’s best designed systems to date! Designed specifically for small shops where the collector is moved from tool to tool, our new Mini-Gorilla combines the quality and performance of an industrial system with the features and convenience of personal home units.
Built to last a lifetime using industrial-grade materials, the mini-gorilla’s new molded resin construction is 30% lighter than previous steel models and more air-efficient than ever thanks to it’s new streamlined design. This portable system comes packed with new innovative features that have already earned it recognition as one of the best portable units on the market!
We highly recommend this product for tools with 4″-6″ ports, including:
- Radial Arm Saws
- Table Saws
- Chop/Miter Saws
- Band Saws
- Disc Sanders
- Drum Sanders
- Belt Sanders
- and much more!

1.5HP / 110V Industrial Fan Blower Motor ↑↑
|Motor Type||1.5 HP TEFC Motor w/ Grease Fittings|
|Voltage||110V (220V model also available)|
|Recommended Breaker Size||20A|
|Cord Length||20 ft|
|Remote Control||Sold Separately|
Continuously High Airflow – 583 Actual CFM @ 2″ S.P. ↑↑
This dust collector is designed to collect from one source at a time with tools such as saws, planers, jointers, sanders, lathes, etc. It provides a high amount of continuous airflow performance thanks to its industrial motor, optimized shape, and single-piece smooth inner-wall construction. The 5″ inlet is ideal for use with the most common dust collection ports on small shop tools. A system performance curve can be found by clicking the picture on the right.
What does “Actual CFM” mean?
Rather than post misleading and inflated “Free-Fan CFM Ratings” as other manufacturers do, Oneida Air promotes “Actual CFM” ratings which reflect the operating performance of the fan blower once the filter, cyclone, and flex hose (10ft) are attached. This is to give you the best possible estimate for your dust collection performance. Free-Fan ratings (measured as the fan blower with nothing attached) are usually double the Actual CFM and impossible in any real-world application.
|Maximum Actual CFM||583 CFM at 2″ Static Pressure|
|Impeller Size||12″ Diameter|
|Build Construction||Single-piece / Backward Inclined|
|Material Type||Composite / Non-sparking & Non-ferrous as required by NFPA Fire Code|
Lightweight Design & Compact Footprint ↑↑
We’ve optimized this system for smaller workspaces (where workers move their collector from tool-to-tool) so we’ve molded the cyclone, fan housing, filter plenum, and the drum from an industrial static conductive resin. This heavy-duty resin won’t dent or rust and is extremely lightweight, allowing for a high-degree of mobility with the built-in galvanized steel stand and large non-marking rubber caster wheels.
- Lightweight: 30% lighter than the nearest competitor!
- Mobile: Compact three legged stand provides maximum stability when moving around the shop.
- User Friendly The unique static conductive resin safely conducts static buildup, significantly reducing the likelihood harmful static discharges
- Floor Friendly: Large 3″ caster wheels can be locked in place for additional security and won’t scuff your floors!
- Minimal Point-of-Contact: Only the stand wheels make contact with the floor, while the drums casters only touch when you’re removing it for emptying.
|Total Weight||Approx. 85 lbs.|
|Total Height||Approx. 64″|
|Total Footprint||36″ x 30″|
|System Support||3-Leg Galvanized Angled Steel Tripod|
|Stand Wheels||Three 3″ Rubber, Locking, 360° Free-Swivel Casters|
|Drum Wheels||Three 2″ Rubber, Non-Locking, 360° Free-Swivel Casters|
Streamlined Molded Cyclone Separator ↑↑
The Molded Mini-Gorilla features an ultra-high efficiency cyclone which pre-separates over 99% of fine dust and bulk debris. It’s patented long-tapered shape is optimized for minimum static pressure loss and maximum particle separation. Waste is collected in the 22 Gal. container below the cyclone, virtually eliminating filter clogging while protecting your impeller from larger debris (e.g. nuts, bolts, gravel, wood chips, etc.).
- Clean Shop, Clean Air: No more banging out messy dust bags
- Cost Efficient: Eliminates the need for purchasing expensive replacement dust bags
- Maximum Cyclone Performance: The taller the cyclone shape, the more time given for separation by centrifugal force
- Neutral Vane Inlet: 5″ diameter for use with common flex hose and tool port sizes (reducers and clamps available)
- Integrated Air Ramp: Guides air directly into the vortex, maximizing particle separation performance and airflow
- Works w/ Wet or Dry Materials: Continuously high airflow ensures that only clean air is passed on into the fan impeller
True-HEPA Media Cartridge Flame Guard™ Filter ↑↑
Oneida Air’s systems use hospital-grade True-HEPA Media cartridge filters specifically engineered for dust collection. They are specially designed for low pressure drop and fast dust release for easy maintenance. Unlike other cartridge filters on the market, our filters work at peak efficiency right out of the box, require zero pre-loading, and are easily serviceable.
- Easy-Clean Vacuum Hose Hookup: Allows for extremely fast and easy filter cleaning, eliminating the need for unhooking and emptying messy dust pans! Simply connect your shop vacuum to the bottom port on the filter while reverse blowing compressed air into the pleats and breathe new life into your filter!
- Flame Guard™ Arrestor Technology: Patented safety feature composed of a special metal mesh surrounding the filter that works to rapidly dissipate any heat generated by a deflagration within your filter.
- Third Party Tested: Oneida Air fully stands by the quality and performance of our filters; each filter is sent to an accredited independent testing lab. Call 1-888-510-2295 for more information and documentation.

Easy-to-Handle Large Capacity Dust Container ↑↑
Molded from the same static conductive resin as the rest of the system, the dust container of the Molded Mini Gorilla is a highly reinforced, lightweight, 22 gallon drum with non-marking casters. Easy to empty and easy to use, the Mini-Gorilla’s drum lets you work with maximum efficiency.
- Level Detection: Dust level viewing window lets you see when the drum is getting full!
- Quick-Release Latch: Three elevation latches lift the drum off the ground while system is in use for higher mobility
- Simple to Empty: Bag Gripper System allow the use of liner bags within the drum (2 bags included) for quick and easy waste disposal
