I wanted to upgrade my dust collection for a shop vac to the real deal.
I always trust delta machinery so I thought this was a good way to go. I headed right over to woodcraft and I saw this shiny beast. I purchased it that day along with the appropriate fittings and hoses. woodcraft has an amazing supply of dust collection accessories I might add!
I got home and began to assemble the unit. There is a moderate amount of assembly but the instructions for once are actually helpful. I would suggest assembling this with two people though as Installing the motor onto the enclosed cabinet is not exactly easy.
After putting it together I couldnt help but turn it on. This thing sounds GREAT. Im a sucker for tools that sound good and this thing just purrs.
After tirelessly running hose throughout my shops ceiling hooking up each machine I let it sit over night.
When I returned to work the next morning I could wait to fire this thing up. I opening the blast gate for the table saw and this thing literally was pulling dust out from inside my table saw cabinet. It has balls. I cut down a 4×8 sheet of mdf for shop cabinets and the dust was near nothing. its has excellent suction. I do recommend a 4 inch hose as with most dust collectors.
The one gripe I have with this machine is a love hate thing. I love the look of the enclosed cabinet but it makes changing the bag very difficult for one person. But this is only a minor thing. All in all I would recommend this unit to anyone!
