I think you re missing the design intent of the Dust Deputy and trying to make it something that it s not. A Dust Deputy is designed to be used with a shop vac. It is NOT a separator for a large shop dust collector. The inlet and outlet sizes should tell you that. I have a Dust Deputy that is hooked in line with a re-purposed central vacuum cleaner that I use when doing scroll sawing and sanding with a ROS and 1/4 sheet pad sander. It sepasrates the fine saw dust to keep the vacuum filter from loading up. It does a great job for this purpose. I don t try to use it to collect sawdust from the planer, table saw, etc. This is a job for a full size 1 1/2 – 3 hp 5 – 6” piped system dust collector like a Clear Vue.

I believe you’re thinking of the standard Dust Deputy. The Super Dust Deputy designed for dust collectors, not vacuums.

Steve, what kind of hose/ducting system do you use? That also can be a factor in efficiency. I have a Thien separator on my HF DC, and with a ducting system and minimal hose, it works well. There is a CFM drop, but the CFMs are adequate. I wanted a Super DD, but didn’t want to spend the money!
