I only have 1 machine connected to the dust collector at a time. I just don t have the room to run ducting all over the garage.
That being said, I could still have a somewhat larger unit just to get the CFM up.
With the Harbor Freight being 1.5 H.P, I could go to possible a Grizzly that has a true 2 H.P. motor with a larger impeller without having to run ducts all over. Or am I not thinking correctly on this idea?

P.S. Sorry for the doubble post

Even if one at a time, with a 4” hose and 4” ports, you’ll hit a max cfm that will not come close to what you’ll need that some machines can produce.

It all comes down to your goal. Do you want something that can keep chips from accumulating on the floor or are you wanting to keep the find particles from getting into the air?
There’s no right or wrong, just what you reasonably expect the dust collector to do.
