I was just wondering if it was possible to add a cyclone on to a grizzly model Go548z or if anybody has done this?

Like a separate second stage? Or a modification to the primary unit? If it’s the first, sure! If it’s the second…not sure.

A seperate second stage like one of the trash can attachments that you can hook up to the unit.

If the Griz has a 4” port, you should be able to use any 3rd party cyclone. I’d search around the archives and you’ll probably find a review for one. You’ll probably find it connected to a Grizzly as well! I’ve got a JET with a trashcan cyclone. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work on yours. Good luck!

I have had my 2hp Grizzly for 10 years now, when I bought it they had a special and gave me a free seperator lid with it. I put it on a metal garbage can and don’t have to empty the bags very often at all.

Are you talking about using the blower on top of a cyclone, by mounting the motor sideways. There’s a guy on ebay that sells the cyclone body and people have mounted different brands of blowers on top of it. They all seem to think it works fine.

Sure, you could use one of those Ebay sheet metal cyclones, or for about the same $$ use an Oneida Super Dust Deputy, or if you are creative, you could build a Thien Cyclone. Pick a direction and run with it!
