I’m starting to take over the basement now that the garage is full. I promised to keep it clean,and this is a big part of that. All I have connected at this time is a lathe, but that will change. I looked at just about everything that I could go and look at.To me, this was the ideal machine. Good specs, small size,not real loud. Speaking of specs: Impeller diameter = 12” Sound rating at 3 ft (db) = 75 – 90 Air flow at 6” (CFM) = 1,064
Velocity at 6” (FPM) = 5,374 Canister efficiency = 86% of 1 micron particles, 98% of 2 micron particles
Motor (TEFC) 1.75 HP,115/230V (prewired 115V) Overall dimensions =37”x29”x72”
I bought a floor model, so I had to take it apart to carry it down the steps. This is a quality machine. It even has a remote,and that is so cool. I’ve had it hooked up for 2 months now, and I’m a happy owner.It will handle anything I can get down the steps. When you go and look at dust collectors, take a good look at the motor. This motor is a whopper, no inflated specs. This thing could suck start a B – 52.
