Grizzly G0572 Hanging airfilter No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Okay I’ve had this little gem for about a year, and I must say it has DRASTICALLY improved my shop! This thing has three settings 556, 702 and 1044 CFM. My shop is 500 sqft with 12 foot tall ceiling, and even the lowest setting clears the air quickly, and it you can even set it to auomatically go off in 1,2,4 hours. Has a 5 mic outer filter to catch the large stuff and a 1 mic inner filter(washable). I never realized how much stuff even a great centeral dust collection system leaves behind until I got this. Also My finished come out better now. Must say though was a major PITA to hang Twelve feet off the ground!!!! Probably not a design flaw though ;O)

Glad to read such a positive review. I am looking forward to mine being delivered on Tuesday. :)
How much of a PITA is it to change the filters? Seems like the outer filter will need changing rather often.

Have been seriously considering this for my garage/shop. Glad to hear it made such a difference! What was the cost for the Grizzly?

I also have this one. I concur with the review. My shop is 900 sq ft and has 16 ft ceilings. Clears the air no problem. A good value

I have the same model for over two years now and continues to do a good job. Remote stopped working about six months ago but no problem to just push the on/off button on units side. Filters are easy to remove and clean and snap quickly into place. The 5 Micron filter is a bit pricey at $10 and not a standard size found at the BORG.

Well, this air cleaner is no longer on my short list. After having LOML say once “go ahead and buy it” I pulled the trigger. The cost on it was quite reasonable compared to other units. $209.95 + $10.00 oversize fee, and of course shipping, which for Grizzly wasn’t too horrible…

Now I need to get this thing mounted and running once it comes in…

Just checked my email, and it appears that Grizzly is back ordered. I guess I have to wait at least 3 more weeks before they ship…

I sure wish companies like this would stock up a bit before they put something on sale like this…

Fine Woodworking just did a review on this type of unit. You should check out these reviews before buying. Grizzly opted not to participate. The least expensive one in the review was the Jet and it won all around best, and best value to boot.

I own one of these and it was really great until the circuit board died…...I ordered a new one 2 months ago and it is still back ordered until some time in September. ;-( The good part is the board only costs $16+ including shipping. I sure miss this filter.
