Well it’s only Friday but I had my 2 boys home for the day so I put them to good use. Although unit only weighs 75 lbs it’s quite bulky so 2 strong young men are better at lifting than 1 middle aged man.

Mounting things to the ceiling in my shop is always a challenge due to the metal sheeting and the trusses are on 48” centers(standard for pole barn construction). So if anyone is wondering why I mounted 2×4 runners on ceiling that’s why. The unit is fairly large hanging down from ceiling 20” so my 10 foot ceiling is a plus.

Another view.
And a 3rd view.

Look for a review to follow in the coming weeks. I hope this solves some of the problem with the fine dust floating around.

That beast looks like it would suck small children off the ground. Let me know what you think of that unit, I have been looking at them too.
By the way, where did you get that air hose reel from? Looks handy.

That’s a huge air cleaner, I have a Jet air cleaner with a 12×24 filter and it is always needing to be cleaned, I guess it is really doing it’s job. I am thinking of adding a second one. So much for a s0ometimes quiet shop.

Have your say...
