Looking for anyone’s thoughts or experience with the Grizzly G0703 cyclone dust collector ( http://www.grizzly.com/products/G0703 ).

I need a small foot-print, mobile unit that can run on 120vac. This one seems to fit the bill.

I would be using it with a hose to connect to one machine at a time (no plumbing).

When I was looking at similar…it was between this one, the Laguna, and the Jet Vortex. Seemed like the Laguna has the superior specs, and can be caught on sale w/shipping inc. for just a hair more. I ultimately went for the Jet, without the cyclone. It had the canister filter, and their “vortex” feature with the desired smaller footprint and good CFM numbers. The Powermatic was also in the running. You can catch them on the 15% off sales and free shipping a few times a year. I think I paid $699.

The reviews I read on the Grizzly were just fair it seemed. While the Jet had pretty good ones.

i have the G0447. i am extremely happy with this, the finsh is good, very well put together. im sure these are also true of the smaller machine. the only question i have is the filter, i may replace my filter with one from wynn. i am trying to determine how much fine dust is making it through being as it is rated at 1 micron. wynn filters are .5 micron.

But you still have to deal with the plastic trash bag, don’t you? That’s one of the things I am trying to get away from.

Grizzly says the canister filtration on the filter they supply with the G0703 is between 0.2 Micron and 2 Micron. They also sell a HEPA filter package for it, but that is priced at $475.

Yes, the Jet has the trash bag. I am sure it fills faster than the canister units. But, you will be emptying something no matter what you pick. Maybe those buckets are easier to deal with, just didnt justify the price and footprint difference for me. But I do think there is some value there.

I have a 2hp cyclone, and consider it absolute minimum. Have been looking at upgrading to a larger impeller, possible motor change. Sanding dust is really hard to collect, the planer chips are the easiest.
