If I had the space I would prefer the bag house.

As it is I have a cyclone with a pleated filter and the
filter clogs faster than I expected. My preference would
be to vent the thing outside into a bag series.

That said, the cyclone takes up far less floor space (though
it is 8 feet tall) than the awkward roll-around bag model
I had before which was made more awkward with a cyclone
separator lid. The cyclone is a really great solution
but the small pleated filters primary advantages are low
cost and being small, not performance.

Why would you want a bag house?
What cyclone do you have?
Probably the drum is full,
You’ll probably need a HAZMAT suit and full face respirator to change those baghouse filters

I would think the bag house located in a outside room where the “clean” air is not recirculated into the shop would be the best.

You can get a lot that are over 2hp, including from Oneida. 2hp does seems to be a popular price point. I recently bought a 5hp Clearvue; I’ll post more once I get some shop time and actually get it installed and piped up.
