Thought I would share that the 2hp HF dust collector is on sale. I hope it as good as I have been reading cause I got one.

Was it on sale in your local store? It’s $199 online, which it seems to always be. They advertise it as having a “regular price” of $250, but I have never seen it actually at that price lol.

Yes… you have to really watch their prices continually to really know what is a SALE or not…

If you’re not happy with it (90 days), you can always pack it up & take it back! (I think)...

A good sale on this item is $139. The kind of normal sale price is $149. There is a coupon in a recent Wood mag at that price.

You do want to upgrade to a cartridge filter. The stock bag is not good enough. Also recommend a Thien baffle, either outboard over a trash can, or inside the ring.

4” pipe, PVC hard pipe with 45 degree elbows and a short section of straight pipe between them, and Wyes, not T’s. Or, just get 10’ of flex hose and move it between machines.

It’s a real HF Gem.

$139 – $149 is a very good price! I might put this on my watch list too…
... I’d have to make room for it… rearranging things again!

Sale price never matches the coupons that you get from the woodworking mags. I think the current deal I saw this month was 149.99. If you payed more you may want to return it and bring a coupon for the lower price.

I got mine a few years ago, while on sale and threw the 20% coupon on top of that. I think it came out to $138.00 or so…

Add a cartridge filter and a Thien separator and it keeps chugging down the dust just fine… Yes I want a big bad cyclone and plumbing with 6” spiral duct, but hey, I also want an F150 Raptor for me and a Caddilac CTS-V for the wife…
