- Grizzly G0562ZP 3HP Double Canister Dust Collectore
- Brand: Grizzly | Category: Dust Collection
I have been running this dust collector for several months now and have had no issues. The suction is really good, I can have several ports open at one time with no problems. At under $700 it is the same price as the Powermatic 1.75HP machine but with more power and more capacity, I know because I own both machines. The Grizzly is 3HP and has a 7 inch inlet. I don’t like the 7 inch because it is tough to find all the piping for that size but after searching the home improvement stores I was able to use metal HVAC parts to make it affordable to run across my large shop. To get real suction from your machine you need to run 7 inch pipe for your main run and then go down to 4 inch ports as close to the machine as possible.
I use this machine for a downdraft table, miter saw station, router table, drill press, and a couple stationary belt sanders. I can’t speak to longevity because I have only had it running for a few months but so far so good. I know a lot of people try to spend the least amount of money as possible on dust collection but getting real results has been such a blessing in my shop. I always felt I was wasting money on half ass dust collection methods and once I ran a real system like this with full size pipe it really does make my job and my breathing easier! Let me know if you have questions.
