I recently purchased a Shop Fox 1.5 hp Dust Collector. It claims to only draw 15 amps, but directly hooked up to a 15 amp outlet, it trips. The nearest 20 amp outlet is 15 feet away and with a 15 foot extension cord (12 guage), it still trips. However it does work directly hooked up to the 20 amp, but it is then too far away from the tablesaw, planer and other tools. Installing 220 volt isn’t an option. Any suggestions?
