I changed up from the 1hp Craftex. This machine is much better for a multiple machine system. Much higher noise level though.
Good hobby person style dust collector,
Works well for dust collection. Changing bags and establishing a good seal difficult due to design of legs/size clamp on the bags.. doable but could be better
My shop’s layout required the collection pipe to go around the upper wall with vertical drops to each machine. This unit handles the job wonderfully.
