Due to low head room in my shop I was wondering if anyone has had any experience mounting a
Dust Right® 1200 Air Filtration System under a work bench I only have about 7ft 6in of head space in my garage. Can anyone shed some light if this would be a possible working solution Thanks !

No, I have never tried that.

Just mount it next to a lightbulb, you already have to keep an eye out for those so you should avoid hitting it. Only negative I see is that the bench does restrict the air flowing in the higher up on less the suction side is at the end of the bench. From a ceiling perspective that wouldn’t matter since all the air is below and there would be no air to clear above it. Might be a negligible difference though.

I will have a furnace mounted in my shop – a down flow furnace out of my house – so all of the air flow should be toward the floor of my shop. I was thinking with the fiilter mounted about 10 inches off the floor that that would help move air and filter it at the same time. am I thinking wrong ?

You can mount it on a wall as well. I imagine that would work better than mounting it under a workbench.

It’s not so good to mount the air cleaners low in general
but a lot depends on the doors and windows in the
shop which determine how the air moves.

You can light some incense and watch the smoke
and it will sort of travel around the room in a circle
and the best location for the air filter is in on that
circle.

I think the issue with mounting it low is it will tend
not to clean the air in the top part of the room as
much, where the lighter dust is floating.
