Default Hi & looking for information

Hello. Here I am at another forum.
I saw an old friend I taught to use a router many years ago yesterday and today here I am. I have always made such a mess in the cellar with my routers, four of them I think. My dear elderly mom is giving me a dust collector system for my small basement woodshop for this Christmas past. I did quite a bit of woodworking in the 60's. Now in retirement I want to make more dust. It is a lot of work deciding. The beams in my cellar limit the height of a portable to just under 77". I am looking seriously at the 2hp Dust Gorilla Portable by Oneida-Air. I am an American made kind of guy. This unit has many features I can appreciate. I have always used a Makita 410 3” hose unit but it won’t last forever. I will use it on a Rockwell 14" drill press, Rockwell jointer, a Rockwell Unisaw, a Rockwell belt sander, a Delta 14" band saw and a Hegner scrollsaw.
There is just no room in the overhead for ducting the way I have things arranged in one big L with my work bench at the top of the L.
I realize I may need to shake things up, move things about.
Help me out guys any experience with the 2hp Dust Gorilla Portable
