About a year and a half old
Changing to something a little more compact – recently moved shop spaces and the footprint of this machine is a little awkward for me. Runs great

Includes collector, Wynn filter and Woodcraft trash can separator (with the can)

More compact you say? I have the exact same unit as you and it stays in my 6×12 cargo trailer, which is my cabinet shop. Throw away the base, bag system and large round plenum piece with 5 ” hole. Build a small flat cart with wheels that has a foot print no larger the the motor and turbine, which is 16” x 16” or so. rotate the unit so that the switch is on top and the exhaust port is horizontal. Add a couple braces for strength. Order a rockler 5 mic bag with 5” hole. I will take pics and show you if you want. This thing is small and portable, no bigger than HF smaller green 1 hp unit.

I would like to see the pictures MacB, I am thinking of something similar with the Dust Deputy and am trying to figure out how to reduce the footprint myself.
