Topic tags/keywords: dust collector

Hi everyone,

I did some searching through the forum and the review section and didn’t see this particular unit listed.

I’m looking to get a dust collector, the shop fox 1hp is rated at 800 cfm and comes with a 2.5 micron bag ( i know 1 micron is ideal)

if you look at my shop pictures i wont have any long runs to make, im looking to have the table saw and chop saw hooked up permanently and because i roll my band saw and planer out of the way i will have those on quick disconnects that can be hooked up as needed.

I’ve found it online for $190-$205 + 45 shipping.

Does anyone have any exeperiance with this model, or can recommend another model in the same price range?

thanks everyone.

Hey David
If you just need an inexpensive unit that sounds pretty good. I’ve used several Harbor freight 2hp units for a few years now. I bought the first one on sale for $125 and thought it would get me by until I got my shop organized, but after using it I found it worked great and bought 2 more and mounted two outside. the total for all three was under $400. They were rated at 1800 cfm by Harbor freight. I don’t buy much from HF but these have worked great.

I’ve had my Delta 1HP for a few months now and it’s been great, as long as I only have one machine hooked up and the hose isn’t longer than 8-10 feet. Also added a shaker felt bag which makes a big difference with the airborne stuff.

If I had to do it again, however, I’d definitely go with 1-1/2 or 2HP.

I have the Grizzly G8027 DC. No complaints. I think it was $149.

But JJ, I take it you do not use it in an industrial setting?

Did I miss something. Industrial setting?....... What’s that about? No, I don’t use it in an industrial setting. I use it in my little tiny shop.

Ahhh no, you missed nothing…It’s about wheather this Shop Fox Tool is used 8 hours a day vs your “little shop.” The problem is that industrial, 8 hour a day run their dust collector dudes wonder why that great deal they got on a Shop Fox (Grizzly) burned out the motor.

i defiantly as much as I beg and plead with the LOML will not be able to do wood working 8 hours a day much less 8 hours a weekend.

looks like i will be going with one of the 3 models grizzly 1hp, shop fox 1 1/2 hp, or possible the HF 2hp any one that buys 3 of anything is telling the truth :)

thanks for the input everyone.

I think someone has you on the right path David….... Do some research and I’m sure you’ll choose the one that’s right for you. One suggestion, if you get the Grizzly, go ahead and order the good bags with it.

Feel free to be rude with someone else junior!

Dude asked about a Shop Fox model. I asked in what setting it was being used. Not everyone here is a weekend warrior. Problem is I’ve had INDUSTRIAL customers…yes. those who leave a dust collector plugged in and working 8 hours a day attempt to buy that cheap piece of crap and USE IT in THAT SETTING!
Then, the friggin thing blows up on them because those “fine needle bearings” can’ get out of the way of the dust!

There…do you understand now or next time should I send you a copy of Hooked on Phonics?

First, yes, I’ll be rude with you if you’re rude with me. Second, you didn’t ask the poster, you asked me…..... which really made you look like you weren’t paying attention. Suck it up and go on bro.
