The clear plastic bag at the bottom of the filter just sprung a leak; is there a quick replacement, or do I need to order from Griz? Thanks,

Don J

When did you buy this?
Every grizzly machine has 1 year warranty.
They will replace any part.

Grizzly has great costumer service, one of my dust collector has the wrong clamp, so will sent a new one to me.

Why not try a 55gal. contractor garbage bag from HEB? If I am remembering correctly they are 3mil. thickness. I am looking at my HF 2hp DC unit and it looks like it would fit. I wouldn’t think a bit of fold/overlap of the bag would hurt. IMO, the only drawback is not being able to “see” the dust in the bag. Are you using a cyclone in front of the DC?

BTW, I’m just 26mi. north of 1604 so I guess we’re neighbors. 8-)

The G0441 is a 3hp cyclone. And yes, garbage bags work fine. Seeing probably isn’t a problem, as my original bag collected maybe a cup of dust during the 9 months before it also split.

I had the same thing happen to me and replaced with a heavy duty garbage bag. Fold the edge outward and staple it, then when you thread the metal band through it (like a belt for pants), it makes for much quicker sawdust dumping & replacement over the generic setup. If you’re worried about bag opening bigger than the DC ring just put a foam weatherstrip around the “clamping” area

Thanks,

My concern was that the pressure on the bag might rip through a garbage bag, but it sounds like the thicker ones handle it just fine. Thanks, as I’ll just put a garbage bag on it.

Don,

Try Wynn Environmental. They sell packs of 4 mil clear poly bags for $13.00 / 10 pack.

I hate to be the first to suggest it but “Duct Tape”!! Unless the bag is shredded duct tape on the inside should hold the bag together.

“a 55gal. contractor garbage bag from HEB?”

What’s HEB? Is that a local San Antonio thing or am I just being very thick tonight?

I’ve been using heavy duty garbage bags for 3 years on my 2hp Jet DC. haven’t ripped one yet. My usual problem is to forget to check the thing until it’s too full…....

HEB is a Texas grocery store chain… Dirt cheap, and at least the one in my neighborhood, the best darned cuts of meat you could ask for…
