Wow, is all I have to say. This was a part graduation part birthday present and I have to say I love this thing. It has made my woodworking experience a whole lot better. I bought about fifty feet of PVC and ran it along all the walls in my shop connecting it to my jointer, table saw, bandsaw, router table, and put in a handy floor sweep. I even put in a shop vac port that can hook right up to a shop vac hose and I can use it for my miter saw or for sanding or routing. I installed blast gates and this thing when hooked up correctly sucks (I mean that in a good way :]). I positioned it right outside my shop and it runs though a lot of pipe at the end, but still has full sucking power, on top of that it runs off of a 15 amp circuit!!! YAY no more wiring issues. The top bag is rated at one micron and the bottom bag is clear plastic so you can see when it’s full. It draws 1200 cfm and has a 1.5 horse motor. It is a bit loud but this isn’t much of an issue because it is in another room. I assembled it in about 30 minuets and it worked like a charm. The bags are so easy to take off and put on compared to other dust collectors too. It has a metal ring that fits into a cavity in the dust collector so all you have to do is pinch the bag and pop it into place. I got a really great deal on it for about 300 bucks at AMAZON.COM with FREE SHIPPING!!! it shipped the day after the order and I received it in two days after shipping. I recommend this unit to any beginning woodworker that wants dust collection that is effective but doesn’t want to buy a 1000 dollar cyclone.
