My question is far simpler. How did you come up with the 8" main duct size? This unit has "Number of Air Inlets 1 at 6", 2 at 4" so how are you connecting the 8"?

it's either a typonese or a resized take off...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Steve...whether I go to 8" or not will depend on how many twists and turns I need to deal with. I'm not sure if the main needs to go overhead or along the wall on the floor...it depends on where the DC winds up.

To answer your question, the inlet guard would need to be changed to 8"...either a new one or modify the existing. But first a technical discussion with Jet TS to verify that what I have planned is ok...bigger is not always better...

Default Update:

The 1200 was delivered today...now I have to drive the 1 1/2 hours to make sure I beat Stick to the driveway...

It was delivered by freight carrier (160lbs) so I don't know yet if it's up by the garage or at the end of the driveway or somewhere in between. I'll be leaving in a couple of hours so I don't think Stick can hop a plane that fast and beat me to it... Now, some of you local guys might have a shot at it...

I'll take a couple of pics of it in the driveway (just for proof) before I drag it into the garage...er, shop. We'll see if I can still remember how to drag dead weight without keeling over next to it...

I won't be unboxing it tonight as I need to drive back to meet with a prospective buyer for my sailboat in the morning. And in the near future, I hope to have my motorcycle sold. CHEEZZZ...too many toys...!

Talk about high-mileage days...! I bought my 3500 in October and already have 10,000+ miles on it...now if they'll just fix the roads so it rides nice and smooth...

Stay tuned...unboxing in a couple of weeks... (have I mentioned how patient I am...?)

Won't work that way...too much bend in the hose and the outlet of the impeller winds up where the bag belongs...and the motor sticks out too far off the base...

But thanks for the idea...

I plan to use 8" snap-lock for the main trunk ducting with 4" drops.
I think 8" is way too large for a dust collector with a 6" inlet. You'd need at least 5Hp to be able to use an 8" main line.
