    Thats right, this SUCKS!

    I purchased a new dust collector in March and it has occupied a space on my floor ever since. I finally got tired of seeing it there a contracted with a company to install the piping. I hung the cyclone yesterday and they did the rest today.

    5 hp Baldor motor with 3000 cfm.

    Did I mention it SUCKS!?

    Also, today is my grandsons 10th birthday and my repaired Nikon will finally get back home. Just cost $400 for the repairs. All in all, a pretty good day.

    LOL. I thought that you were going to tell us that the collection bin caught fire or something like that.

    I was afraid you were already getting hit by the hurricane. Hope the new vac system helps keep you dry this weekend!

    Surprisingly, not as loud as the one it replaced. The older one had 2300 cfm and was much louder. I believe since the new one has a pleated filter with a muffler inside, the noise level has been reduced.

    What I was surprised with was I can now use four woodworking machines at the same time with this new cyclone running. Using 8" and 6" main run piping has lessened the resistance in the air flow and is making the system more efficient.
