Just notied Harbor Freight has their 2hp dust collection unit on sale again. $209, plus a 20% off coupon. Takes the price down 42 bucks to $167. Works very well for me and a lot of others. Put a chip collector in front of it and you get nice performance. It comes with a 5 miron bag filter, but you can buy a canister filter like the one in the piture, but it will cost you more than the HF unit. I have a Wynn filter for it, but I think Grizzly makes one now with a beater bar built in. With the Wynn filter, you blow compressed air back through it. The picture shows a canister filter, the one on sale is a bag. Roll it outside when you use it because the bag leaks small particles like mad.

The second picture is how I have it set up now, outside the shop under a shelter.

the inlet on the HF is 4''... and you simply can't pull their unrealistic rating of 1600CFM through a 4'' hole.. you can't do it...
It's actually a 5" inlet, but it comes with a "Y" fitting that gives you two 4" inlets into the one 5".
The ratings are certainly not accurate though.

I've had mine for probably close to 10 years now, and was a steal at the $139 I paid for it. It's far more powerful than an older 1HP Craftsman I have.
