I made the upgrade early this year from shop vac to a Grizzly 2HP DC. Definitely worth it. I have a garage shop that I usually use with the garage doors open. The DC certainly keeps the dust down (and my wife’s car a lot cleaner!) I have the 5 micron bag, and per the comments above I think it’s broken in now and does better than that. MDF cuts produce ultra fine particles and used to make a huge mess – much better now with a DC. Also have a trash can separator that helps with the cleanup because I don’t have to take the DC bag off.

One day I’ll step up to a 3HP cyclone or better, but until money is falling out of my pockets, I’ll keep what I have and it works well.
