I may have figured out how to get 240 into the shop easily and so am considering this saw.

What I’m wondering is, do I have to have dust collection? I’ll get a cyclone eventually but I’d like to get the saw and run with it for a bit first.

What kind of issues will I be facing? Better to hook up a shop vac in the short term or nothing at all?

You don’t need a dust collector for it, but you will have to clean out the base periodically since most of it collects at the bottom. Even with the dust collector, mine hold an additional 5 gallon buck of up dust at the bottom.

The saw will be fine. Empty it out once in a while, blow some compressed air on the moving parts, etc. The issues that you would be facing are respiratory problems, allergies, eye irritation, cancer and other downsides related to airborne dust. I’d suggest hooking something up to reduce your exposure as much as possible.

I would at least hook a shop vac to it to help keep down the airborne dust.

Have your say...
