In my opinion the HF 2hp collector is identical to the 2hp collectors sold by at least 4 other better known (and more expensive) brands.

I have had one for two years and it works great.

It is a PITA to assemble and the instructions are useless and missleading. Good idea to have a few spare screws etc. because sometimes they will short ship a few or send the wrong size.

If I was building this again I would reinforce the sheet metal base with some 3/4 plywood and use my own bolts and screws (inch based) to put it all together. Would have to drill out some of the holes like from 6mm to 5/16 to use a 1/4” bolt, for example. And use lock washers, or locktite, because the nuts tend to vibrate off.
