Hi Tom
I’m not an expert but I know what has worked for me. I’ve had more expensive units than what I have now .
I had a higher end Oneida years ago and found it did a fine job and I now have more than one HF unit and find they working fine. I know that there’s a big to-do about how fine of dust your DC unit will collect or block depending how you think about it. of course that’s important in the long run. I have chosen to run all of my units outdoors eliminating the need for collecting fine dust particals. I have found I could eliminate costly ducting by having three HF units, all said and done these units cost less than one higher cost and have done a great job for years. If your trying to impress people HF DC units are not the way to go,but if you just want to remove the dust from your shop then save yourself money and frustration of reading tons of reviews and how to’s and keep it simple run your DC unit outside and get A HF unit and see how it works for you.
