My Grizzly dust collector has just 1 intake port and I am looking for what the name is for the adapter to make it a 2 port?

I have searched every name I can think of and just straight up typed in dust collector accessories and went page by page.

I am looking for one that will replace my current single port to a dual port. Or a fitting that can go over the existing port to make it a dual port.

Y-inlet. Probably be something like a 6”x4”x4” or 5”x4”x4” depending on the model you have. If its a current model, it should have a parts list on Grizzly’s website.

It is an older model from like 20+ years ago. It has a 4” inlet and 2HP.
And it does not have a model number on it just a Grizzly plate and specifications of the motor.

When I search Y-Inlet I do find some but they seem to be trunk like Y-inlet or splitters. I could have sworn i had seen a completely new plate that replaces the single port to a dual port.

Redoak do you happen to have a link? Or can I search those measurements at Grizzly?

Yeah I think those are for trunk lines. What I may do is look at the manual for the newer 2HP and find the part that I am wanting and see if Grizzly has it. I may have to drill different holes for the screws to fit but the size should be the same going to the impeller.

That fitting is sometimes called a tru wye. It’s possible that a local sheet metal shop may be able to make you one. I have no idea what that might cost though.

Have your say...
