That one doesn’t have all that many hours on it as I spend half of my shop time at home in Canada and the other half at my winter place in Az. I did that last winter and used it for a month or two but I have every confidence that I will give me better bang for the buck than the Wynn did. At under a third of the price it will be a winner if it lasts half as long and I’m betting it will do better than that.
On the other hand the bigger ones on my home DC have been on for much longer and show no signs of needing replacement. The still suck better than the bag ever dreamed of and allow no noticable dust escapement.

I haven’t measured the cfm of either but anecdotally I can say there isn’t a noticable difference between the larger Wynn and the smaller Donaldson.

Not sure what you meant by “What did it run?” but if you meant cost it was under $50 as I remember. Try one. $50 is all you have to lose and I’ll bet you don’t change after you have tried it.
