My G1029 isn’t overly loud…pretty much the same as most DC unit’s I’ve heard. Never heard the G1030.

The bigger the HP the more it will get loud.
My shop is about 450 SF. I have the G0583Z dust collector,1 HP is barely enough for 1 machine. If I did it again, I would get a 3HP duct collector.

Have your say...
