The unit pictured above is $1895 and it has one filter on it. The Clear Vue CV1800 is $1476 with 2 filters on it. I can’t say how many inches of filtering media are in the Oneida. I got the Clear Vue shipped free to my door. It does have some MDF in it. I read Bill Pendtz’ article on the internet and I think he has done a lot of research. He sold his design to Clear Vue for the separator. I would not say that Oneida is a bad collection system but I did read about someone that had a bad time with customer service and it was on LJ as I recall. I think Penn State has built good units also but I also read someone’s complaint and thought I didn’t need that.
Tommy just asked if anyone had any experience with the Clear Vue system. I don’t know if he has come across a used one or if he just found it listed on the internet or what he has found but I don’t think anyone has slammed the Oneida. They are simply comparing the filters and we aren’t sure which model had the small filter. I just looked at the Grizzly and saw that the 3 hp cost about the same as the 5 hp CV1800. When I was in the Grizzly store I was looking at the 2 hp and the 3 hp sitting on the show room floor. a customer walked by and said get the bit one the first time. I had to come back and get a larger one. Made me think some more.
