JET DC650 ($364) vs. Grizzly 8027 ($201). Thoughts? Any other recommendations?

Ummmmm, none of them. HF has a 2HP unit for less that works better for cheaper. Spend another $100 and add a Wynn filter if you choose.

I gave $60 for my 1HP HF with a bag at a parking lot sale. I bought a Cartridge off eBay for $40 with shipping. I handles anything I throw at it.

Although otherwise, the choice is yours. You pays your nickel, you takes your chance.

Another vote for the HF….you can get one for about $150 with a 20% coupon

Thanks- sounds great. Can you give me a model # or description. Or is it the only one they carry?

Yep get the HF and spend the money you save to do the upgrades to the filters and look here on LJ for other upgrades you can make to it.

Have your say...
