In my search for a dust collector I came across a fellow that is selling a Jet DC-1200BK(the model with the bag not canister) for about 250. It’s an okay price but I’m not sure the machine is worth it. What experience does everyone ahve with it? Right now the machine I’m judging it against is the Grizzly 2hp canister but it’s about double the price. I’ll be waiting eagerly for your responses.

it’s an OK price. if he’ll let it go for $200 – I’d snatch it, however, I would also upgrade that bag to a canister. Wynn Environmental sells an aftermarket canister which has better filtration than the Jet canister for ~$100. just add that to the total cost though to see if it’s worth it to YOU.

I’d see if he’s willing to let it go for $200… if not, I’d personally get the HF 2HP DC. at this level of DCs, it just can’t be beat.
