For those owners of Oneida Cyclones what did the shipping charges end up being?

I’m comparing Clear Vue, Oneida, and Grizzly cyclones and shipping charges to come up with an overall cost.

Oneida site shows $395
Grizzly – $100
ClearVue – $170

The $395 seems really high even if it includes lift gate, but from what I can see it doesn’t.

I don’t own an Oneida cyclone, but out of curiosity I checked out their website. They make so many different models that it is impossible to estimate shipping. Any more specifics on which model you are looking at? They range from the small plastic Dust Deputy to heavy industrial models with 20 Hp direct drive motors.

Call them on the phone, explain that you are looking at their model xxx cyclone and the web site is unclear as to what the shipping cost is.

That does seem awfully high, does it come with a good used tablesaw for that much?

I was looking at both the portable and stationary systems but when you click on the freight tab they all show $395.

I might have to call and check that. Makes it a bit harder to look at Oneida competitively with a kick in the pants for freight charges.

I wanted to buy a product from a company and found the shipping charges to be out of line vis-a-vis the competition. I called the company and they agreed to adjust the shipping charges for me. It would be worth a try with Oneida. HTH

My SDG came in about 5 boxes, all UPS shippable. The cost was $150, but that was back about 12 years ago or so. Calling them would be the best bet. (Even better, buy a different make, theirs are crap, IMHO). It may be specific to a range of models, depending on their size.

Different make in the Oneida family or different brand together? What did you not like about the SDG?

It’s an extremely long story that I no longer repeat (after years and years of posting the story). The Super Dust Gorilla was the early model Oneida offered (I guess) for hobbyist use. I have resolved numerous problems, not the least of which was replacing the motor. Anyway, the current problem is the basic design, it just doesn’t separate the finest dust to my satisfaction. It mostly winds up in the filter, which I blame on the inherently poor design of the body. What usually happens when i go through all the stuff is 1) someone disagrees hugely with my assessment and wants to debate (that’s OK,we all are entitled to our own opinions), or 2) someone wants to go through troubleshooting my unit/system. This, after I spent hours and hours with Oneida doing that same exercise.
