Hi,

I own a 1HP Rikon dust collector and am wondering if adding a super dust deputy will improve upon it. That is, will I have enough air flow left to make it effective ? I currently can not upgrade to a bigger dust collector because I am limited by the amp load that my circuits can take.

The Dust collector by itself works fine with the planer and saw but lacks suction with my jointer. Additionally, when using it with the planer I often have to stop to clean the hose from buildup occuring at the front of the wye. I am hoping a cyclone unit will solve that since everything falls into the drum.

Anybody has experience using the dust deputy with a smaller dust collector ?

A cyclone will not add to the capabilities of the DC.
Arte ya moving the DC hose from one tool to the next, or gangin’ ‘em up?

the bigger issue is the volume of air moved by 1 hp DCs. usually 1 1/2 hp is the jumping off point for serious air flow, with 2 hp being better. a DD will not increase the air flow of the 1 hp DC. it will keep more dust from the filter and provide whatever volume the DC is drawing to remain available for a longer period of time between filter cleanings.
