This is an excellent price for a 3HP dust collector.

Bert—Never heard of them, but that’s not a negative … I had never heard of Northfield until I started using some of their machines at the local tech school’s shop.

Judging from the descriptions on some of the other offerings on Accura’s website, I would hazard a guess that they are more aimed at the industrial sector more than the home hobbyist, and that they are an importer (they say their mortiser says it “is made in the same factory as many more expensive units”).

honestly – for that price, and for these specs, it just does not compare to a clearvue cyclone. If I had 1K to put down for a cyclone thats probably what I would go for.

or…you could get you two HF 2hp units and pocket the extra $700.
