This collector has been reviewed several times here so I won’t go into to much of the details. The reason i am reviewing it now is because I got the latest issue of “Wood” magazine and there’s a coupon in it for this collector. You can get it with that coupon for just $150 (that’s $100 off the regular price). And it is every bit as good as the VASTLY more expensive Jet and Grizzly models with similar specs.
Here’s why I love this collector…
1. Price, especially if you’re just getting started in woodworking.
2. Power- It’s rated at 2 HP and 3450 CFM (That may be a bit inflated)
3. Versatility- You can roll it around the shop, or mount it in a corner and hook it to a system of ducts for a central collection system.
5. Filtration- 5 Microns are good at this price range, but if you want better you can easily upgrade it.
If you’re using a shop vac to collect dust, now’s the time to upgrade to a LOT better for a LOT less. I know, I sound like a Harbor Freight salesman, but I LOVE this dust collector! (It’s on sale in the store for $190, but the Wood magazine coupon is $150, so go buy an issue of the magazine for $5 and save another $35)
Here’s a link to it on the HF website: http://www.harborfreight.com/2-hp-industrial-5-micron-dust-collector-97869.html
