I’m looking mighty hard at the Laguna pflux DC. Question is should I go ahead and get the 3 HP unit for 270.00 more than the 2hp?
2hp 1980.00
3hp 2250.00
Shipping 75.00
Also has there been any problems with these new units, I heard that they had some problems with them picking up wood out of the Bin when you turned them on an it just swirled around an wouldn’t drop back in. Id really like to know because I don’t know how long I can get one for this price. Thanks in advance.

IMHO I would purchase a ClearVue or Oneida for similar price. These type units have a short cone and several have reported poor separation. If you have limited height and can only fit Laguna then that is your choice.

Agree; the Laguna is expensive for what you get. If for some reason you can only go with Laguna, then get the 3hp unit; wouldn’t make sense to put all that money into a DC and then get something with a relatively small motor for a cyclone unit.

Laguna – There is a 10% discount currently being offered

http://www.lagunabandsaws.com/store/cyclones?gclid=CKzdy5WN7NYCFZJcfgodyHAKFg

With the sale I would go 3hp….. Alaso, I am a fan of Laguna, the company has vastly improved from the past.
Enjoy that big new beast.
