Would a Gorilla Mini DC be good for this setup.

A few of the members here have motivated me to look at some higher end DC systems as well as some level of filtration and wanted to run this by you. I have a 250 square foot attached garage where I will be setting up my shop. I have 220 going out to it to run one machine that requires that at a time so the DC will need to run on 110 and be portable. I need it to be portable for shop configuration and to maximize the suction to that particular machine plus I just don’t mind (in theory) to have to move it around. I was looking at the Gorilla mini but is that enough for my soon to be sawstop or a 15 inch planer? I will add a Jet air filtration to the setup as well. I should mention that I have plenty of other things to build and do for the shop so I really don’t like the idea at this time of building my own with soo many irons in the fire.

Well I finally found a resource listing a minimum of 500 cfm for a 15 inch planer written back in 2000 but that was planing a full 15 inches which I won’t have to do often and it looks like the mini moves 600 (im sure only right at the inlet) but it seems like it would be marginal for a short direct hookup. Better Options?
