I doubt it’s anywhere in the 1100 range, except on paper. That said, the price puts it in the area of a HF collector, with the discount coupons. If it has a bigger impeller, it would be, I think, the better deal.

If you get right down to it, most collectors run far more than $150.00.

After you get the beast, consider swapping the upper bag for a finer one. Better yet, for improved draw and all around performance, think about a pleated cartridge.

Most units come with bags that are best described as “dust pumps.” They do get the big stuff, but they leave the nasties floating in the air, where your lungs will filter it.
