Thanks, Gerry...that was when I thought the DC1200 had an 8" inlet...found out soon afterwards that it had a 6" inlet.

But you bring up an interesting correlation between horsepower and duct size...can you elaborate on that...?

Sorry, I didn't realize I was 2 months too late.

I'm just going by the fact that I've never seen a dust collector in the 2HP and under range with a larger inlet than 6".

No problem, Gerry...I just need to take the time to do the 'rithmetic on the losses based on how I need to run the ducting...that'll tell the story. I have no particular favorite at this point.
