ihocky2 Posted May 1, 2009 Report Share Posted May 1, 2009 I am looking at this dust collector for my shop. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Disp...temnumber=94029 Does anyone have any experiece with this dust collector? My real question is, should I believe the 914 CFM rating? I've even looked at it in the store, and it has that right on the dust collector itself, so it's not a misprint. But that is almost twice as much as other 1HP units. 914 CFM is plenty for my type of setup, but I just question the reliability. I only run one tool at a time, since I can only stand in front of one at a time. I am planning on only hooking up one at a time, or else adding a few blast gates and using a tubing run through some wyes, but it will still be only one source feeding at a time. From the dust collector to the furthest tool won't be more than 20', when I work outside, closer to 10' inside. I know it is only a 12 gallon bag, but I plan on building a chip separator as well, so that should take care of most of the debris. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
