I mounted mine on the wall and put a Thien chipo separator in a barrel upstream of the HF machine. That way, the bag in the dust collector stays basically empty unless I fill up the drum and don’t realize it. I also added the Wynn Nano filter to the HF unit.

I am currently reorganizing my shop (one car garage). I have built a dedicated miter saw station with lowr cabinets and room on the table for n oscillating sander and a belt sander. A shop vac sits undrneath the table and is connected to a Dust Deputy. When I get through all of the tools will be piped to the Dust Deputy.

My table saw, planer and 6 inch jointer all connect to the HF machine via 4 inch hose. I don’t have any issues with the dust collector not keeping up. I can see the dust/chips going through the hose, swirling around in the plastic translucent drum…and nothing in the DC bag.
