I also have this dust collector and have been very pleased with it. The one micron top bag does an excellent job of filtering. My garage shop is small and I simply move the dust collector around or switch the hose from one machine to another. At this point I don’t intend to add any piping other than to perhaps rig something for my router table.

Prior to purchasing the Delta unit, I used an old Sears shop vacuum. The Delta unit is much quieter and does a dramatically better job.

It was easy to assemble and by doing some shopping around, I found it on sale for well under $300.00. One of the best additions to my shop. Probably worth 5 stars, but nothing is perfect.

Ditto, I have one as well, been using it a year or so with no complaints! A thumbs up for sure and would buy it again!

It looks good. Is this the same one carried in the home improvement stores? I’m looking at one now for about 199.00 I think it is 1 to 1.5 hp. I am using ShopVac’s for now but would like to upgrade to a shop wide dust collection system and I’m not sure I should invest in this if I’m going to upgrade in a few years. I wonder if it would still be an asset in a shop with a vac system?

Tyler,

I paid right around $200 for this unit through amazon.com. It may qualify for the free shipping, I don’t remember. Amazon has a great return policy if there is a problem. I havn’t used it yet, but have read a lot of good reviews on it.
