- Grizzly G0703P 1-1/2 HP CYCLONE DUST COLLECTOR-POLAR
- Brand: Grizzly | Category: Dust Collection
I’ve had this DC for 9 months now and have emptied the barrel 4 times which should give you an idea how much I use the thing. Another key point about my usage is that I don’t have any ductwork. I connect the DC directly to the tool I am using at the time. I have it hooked up to a 110v 30A outlet which has not tripped during my use.
Another reviewer said that this DC could suck the chrome off of a trailer hitch. While that is clearly hyperbole they made the point well. I have no problem sucking the dust out of the air while using any tool I have hooked it up to including; RAS, Planer, Jointer, Band Saw, Router Table.
I recently compared the suction to my Dad’s 2HP Grizz with the fabric bag and there is a wide gap in performance. My DC collects so much more dust than his it’s almost unbelievable. I have no regrets with this grizz and would highly recommend it as long as you are not planning on an extensive ducting system.
Why not five stars, well there’s a couple of gripes.
1. The instructions left a bit to be desired. Grizz included the component shown below which I did not find in the instructions and which I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use. Everything works well without it so it must not be required…
2. They include a 6” to 5” adapter but not a 6” to 4” which is probably the most common size of hose that will be hooked up to this DC.
