Not sure if it has capacity needed for 2 tools running at once. Anyone have experience?


EDIT: Does anyone have link to a 16” to 4” hose adapter?

LOL—I’m going to be cautiously optimistic and say yes. That thing would implode your workshop.

Yep, suck the walls in for sure. Is your panel big enough for it?

That’s the same model I use! Mostly just hook it up to my random orbit sander. Works good but it sounds like a train whistle.

I have a 200A service on my house. I could get’r spinning if I unplug the fridge and dishwasher.

I DO have concerns that the dust collector might suck my cabinet tablesaw through the 4” dust hose and into the atmosphere. Perhaps bolting the tools down is the first step here.

200hp motor! That’s about 87 more than my car.

Impressive, 38k cfm @21” static.

I regularly sell roof mounted prop fans on warehouses that move 38000 cfm at 1/8” static with a 7.5hp motor. I find it hard to comprehend that volume at 21” static and a 200hp motor
