brianlsu43—I don’t have either of the models you provided links to, but I have a similar one (ProTech 750cfm with a 1 micron bag), and would not recommend it … it is just not powerful enough. Even using a 4” hose, my thickness planer throws enough material to clog the inlet on the DC, which means a lot of time wasted futzing around.

Much better to go with some of the suggestions above.

If space is a problem (I don’t have room for a real DC solution in my shop), you might look at the Oneida Dust Deputy and a ShopVac. With a HEPA filter installed, that combo out-performs my 750cfm dust collector. The only time my ProTech gets used is when I am working out on the driveway.
