Did anyone ever heard of a more efficient replacement impeller for the HF 2 HP Dust Collector?
Thank you.

There was talk that one of the grizzly’s would work, but no confirmation. I think the motor shaft was different size. I think you would spend just as much ‘extra’ to upgrade the impeller as you would to get a nicer DC. I used to have a HF dc, it was good for what it was, but scored a 3.5hp Penn State motor and impeller and made a thein tophat setup for mine. Price was right for the motor and impeller, free!

It was my best score to date on CL!

this combined with your other thread regarding the ebay cyclone. I looked at those also, seem like a good deal, but I ended up building my own thein top hat separator. Like it a lot, but wonder how much more efficient it would be with a true cyclone.

Today I found a 3PH dust collector used for $200.00 unfortunately it is 3 phases.
I am now thinking about buying a G0440 or G0441
Thank you all for your help.

Maybe one from Fisher-Price or Playskool will fit.

Bert you can buy a static phase converter off eBay for less than $50 (Christmas special). That would work on a dust collector. I know people that have used them in the oil field for years and have had no problems. Just cant start the motor under a load like an air compressor.

Grandpa, I thought about that or even using a VFD but costs just add up and at the end I would have a so-so installation costing me 75% of a good installation.
Is it worth it?
