I bought the Powermatic about a year ago. I replaced a 1.5 HP 15 year old Shop Fox DC that had finally seen it’s better days. I have to say the Powermatic DC has been a great addition. I did not think I would use the remote control that comes standard on it, but now that I have it, I use it all the time and don’t think I will ever go back. Changing of the bags is pretty simple with the snap ring. A lot easier than the Shop Fox was. As far as suction performance, it is definitely better than the Shop Fox, but to be honest not as great as I had hopped. I do like the extras on it, and am overall very happy with it, but I think I would save the money and go with the Jet if I had it to do over again, and may eve go with a stronger HP Grizzly model for the same money.
Just my thoughts.
