Its not dust extraction or control or owt by any means. But if you have the doors open and it's between you and the doors it does blow a huge amount out. Bit noisy but not loud. It's no Dyson airblade. Then again it will last 5 times as long for a fraction of the price. It's also tiltable. Sweet.

That is a practice that you should cease, blowing workshop debris around is pointless, can be very dangerous especially for your health if you are not wearing good respiratory protection.
