Topic tags/keywords: dust collector

Does anyone have any experience with this machine? It will mostly be hooked up to one machine at a time. Any estimate to how long of a house i could use? I’d love to put in the attic above my shop. The guy is asking 300. Is that a fair price?

I have the 11/2 hp 1100VX-CK1 and it does a very goo job connecting one machine at a time. I would think you would be fine with the more powerful 1200. I run a 10ft 4 inch hose with mine and it handles everything well except the drum sander. The dust coming off that machine is so fine it can overload the vortex action and lots of dust still goes into the filter. I don’t really think attic mounting would be the best option for this DC.

$300… buy it, you will be really happy with it. It’s a great machine and runs in the $700’s new.

Yep, good deal.

Attic, nope. Cannot imagine that is a good idea. You are forcing more tight bends which you want to avoid in the hose.

Noted. I knew it probably wouldn’t work but it would’ve been nice if it could. Figured I’d get a second opinion. Thank you much

They roll easily. I’ve not had any issue keeping it in the garage and moving it when necessary.
