I see several satisified user with good reviews on this product. However it has a flaw that bugs me, and is not acceptable. I bought one new in December. The unit does a very good job with collection, is reasonably quiet and I’m happy with that. But new, right out of the box I found a problem. The rod that holds up the dust filter bag attaches to the top/side of the unit’s housing. The first time I moved the unit the rod hung on an over head beam and even though it wasn’t significant by any means the housing insert that the rod connects too will no longer hold the rod tight.
So this looked like a design flaw to me and I called Delta. Needless to say I would have to take the unit apart and take the housing to a local supplier (which Delta gave me) and swap. I saw this same unit at a Rockler store and another local woodworking store which they used there in the store. Both had the same problem and one had the insert completely reamed out and missing. I went to several forums and saw numbers posts realtive to the same problem.
I’m bugged about it and Delta should issue a fix….... not sure how but that’s their’s to figure out. I called Delta and the nice people I talked to were completely unaware of the problem. Obviously, they haven’t seen one of these used for a while.
