Good deal. Tools bought below retail always work better than full price tools.

I should go look in my shop to make sure they’re still there. Those are both exactly the same as mine. Been satisfied with both, although since you only paid about 60% of what I paid, you get an official “you suck”. Nuthin’ personal. That dust collector does just fine with multiple runs, as long as only one is open at a time. Good buy, and goodbye.

Nice score! Looks like a great system.

I have been searching for a dust collection system on CL. I have a small shop in my basement and currently have a mitre saw, table saw, band saw and thickness planar. When you were choosing the dust collection system what did you look for (besides a good price)? What hp, what micron bag, etc.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thx Picklehead…,I will go and put them back,I would say I found a good deal :)...Just by the looks of the outer filter I know the air filter is working well and the dust collector does a nice job at my lathe-overall a cleaner environment-I still wear a mask though…Can’t wait to start planning dust collection runs to my tools…Glad to hear you like them also…
Newbiewoodworker,I researched here on LJ’s/internet for small shop DC and air filters…For small shop needs a 1 1/2 hp DC was recommended to help move air for table saw/planer/jointer dust collection-1 tool at a time though…Everyone makes air filters-I wanted one that was not loud- had mult. speeds,if I could find one…My air filter has one speed-but I was happy in the fact it is not loud…The DC just happened to have a 1 micron bag,lucky again,if not I was going to add a lower micron canister filter…Basement shops from what I have read can be tricky for dust collection because dust can enter your home…Thx…

I have the same dust collector had it about 5 years and only problem is the switch went out, not a problem I have it on a wall switched outlet.

when you get around to it, adding a baffle to the drum ring will send more collected material to the collection bag as opposed to the filter, enabling the collector to maintain volume longer between cleanings. here’s my modification to a 50-850 (similar to your PSI collector):
