I have a Grizzly G0453z 15 inch planer and I’m have trouble with dust collection, I have a delta 1 1/2 hp dust collector with a 6 inch trunk line for about 8 feet where it then goes to a 6×6x4 wye with the 4 inch going to the planer with about a 10 ft run it doesn’t seem to collect all the chips. I had a 12 inch planer connected to this same setup before up-grading and had no problems, wondering if anyone could help.

thanks in advance , Bob

I’ve had a number of different planners and the dust collector never picked up 100% of the chips.

Probably not much help for you but we run a small Grizzly 2 hp dust collector with our jet 15” planer and it works great. The Jet does not have any blower or anything to blow chips out like the more portable Dewalts do. Maybe your dust collector is not strong enough?
