In the continuing road of dust collection, Wynn, Donaldson, and many other filter places, Since adding the Onieda Super Dust Deputy to my collector, I’ve been wanting to buy a canister filter for my H.F. 2hp dust collector that many of us have. After numerous hours on here and throughout the gr8 internet, I finally pulled the trigger on this one:
It is a Grizzly H5783. It’s actually a replacement canister for the Grizzly dust collector’s, G0548/Z & G0562/Z, but this fits our/my HF 2hp collector. It fits it like it was made for it.

It fits over the lip of the HF collector perfectly (I had to “finesse it” ever so slighty). It comes with a built in flapper that I really liked for an option. Every now n then just give it a spin to know off any dust that will be collection on the filter element.

A lot of you may think this is a bit costly, I do too, (about 220 w/shipping), but, my lungs are gonna appreciate it down the road. After firing it up today, I am over the top satisfied.

Here is a few pics of the old, nasty, caked-up upper bag that this cannister replaced: Notice how nice of a fit

I also replaced the bottom bag with a new one, & emptied out my can. I even put a new filter in my over-head air cleaner so I am starting out with everything clean.

Here it is with the new canister on it:

I am truly impressed at how much more suction this has. It even seems like it may be a hair quieter…..I always wear earplugs anyway, but, it does seem a bit quieter.

Anyhoo, I feel this is an amazing addition to the HF 2hp collector. I still need to re-position the impeller to make it more efficient. That’ll be after the holidays are over, and I’ll add my thoughts on here later.

Thnx for the looks, comments, good/bad/ugly. Always appreciate ya’ll’s inputs and thoughts. As I always say, Work/Play safe. Keep that dust collector fed.

Looks like a good setup Roger, nice and compact.
After my 1hp unit carked it I ended up getting a 2hp unit. It sits outside now so I don’t need to worry about a filter.
Well done buddy and have a great Christmas.

Nice mobile dust collector. That is nice that the filter has a wiper in it. That dust will hang in those folds.

Thanks for sharing….............Jim

Not too sure what I’m looking at but I have a Grizzly 240v G1029 2hp dust collector w/fiber bag top and bottom and my top bag ( nor the bottom bag) ever looked like that. Pretty sure the top bag on mine is a 5 micron bag, could be wrong. It is at least 10 years old so who knows ?

That’s quite a system you have there, Roger. Looks like you have made some additions to the original HF collector. I probably should look into getting a new upper bag myself. Like I said before, I have a Penn State collector. OK, my man, good luck with the system. I’m waiting for notification fro Grizzly that my Air filter was shipped.

I was not aware that Grizzly sold canister filters. You have a great set up. I am looking into this now. Thanks Roger.

Way to go! 1 thing I have noticed is the flapper helps, but doesn’t get it all out. I found that out when I was having motor problems with my DC, the tech rep I talked to had me clean it out. I was using the flap on a regular basis, and was surprised how much remained. Every so often use a blow gun, low pressure, and blow it out, from the outside in.

There’s no such thing as too much dc.
