I am quite sure the Harbor Freight doesn t have the horse power to really compete with some of the other dust collectors out there. I have been thinking about upgrading to a larger dust collector and continue using the Super Dust deputy with the new unit. I don t think it is necessary for me to go and buy a cyclone collector since I already have the deputy. I will probably just get a higher H.P. unit an hook it up the same way I have it now.

Is this correct thinking or am I wasting my money by not going to a collector with the cyclone already attached.

The limiting factor on the dust deputy with a higher rated motor is the inlets and outlets on it.
I believe it’s 5” in and 6” out.

When you start getting into higher horsepowers, you will need 6” in and around 8” out to start.

Now, you might be able to get away with it at 3hp as I think that’s the largest Oneida has rated for the Super Dust Deputy but you’re really going to want 6” for your ducting and connections at the tools.
