Just a comment about the HF 2 HP; there are some things to check if you’re thinking about that. The HF is not a 2 HP motor, it’s closer to 1.5HP. Most 1.5HP DCs have an 11” impeller, but the HF has one that’s closer to 10”, that may be what your Jet has. I’d also compare the filtration of your Jet (I’d guess it to be a 30 micron bag) to whatever the HF comes with. Point being, the HF may be an upgrade (or not) from where you’re at, but it might not be much. I did look for the Jet specs and found the online info to be, well, lacking in detail. I’m not beating up the HF, a lot of guys have it and are quite happy…just suggesting that from where you are, it may not be a real big difference.
