Hey Grandpa
I have 3 harbor freight dust collectors all three cost less than many of just one of the other Dust collectors, that look and and from the reviews say that I’ve read don’t really preform any better. I’ve had mine for 11 years and the work fine. Some might say why 3 units and the answer has to do with price. I found that ducting would cost more than another unit. So I have a dedicated DC for my table saw and one for my Jointer and one for all the rest. All but one are mounted out side. I think each unit cost $129. Your shop is not much bigger than mine so I don’t see you having a $1’000 mistake as a possibility. If you have your ducting in place and try one unit (I think $149 now) even if you don’t like it your not going to throw away the duct work. If you want to use your coupon, buy all three units open one and if you don’t like it HF has a great return policy so you can take one or all of them back if you want as long as you do so in the (I think 60days) your good to go. It sounds like Crank has the duct work about right from my experience.
