Almost certainly that blower will require the larger unit (SDD XL) to do it s best.

Thanks. I did not know if SDD dropped pressure and should try to over power, but seems the XL one will allow higher cfm with my 3hp?

Three horsepower is a pretty big blower. I would not choke it off by using only one Wynn filter. I would also choose the Super Dust Deputy XL for best performance.

Nice. After some more reading, it seems a filter stack of 2x Wynn with a clean out makes more sense. Can you have too little back pressure if venting outside?

Sounds like you need to do some more research – before you buy or modify anything else sit down with a beverage and snack and do some reading on Bill Pentz s site

Wow. So much knowledge on that site. Seems that I should really try and direct vent outside. Still working through material but 6” ducting seems a must. Did not see SDD mentioned on that site. Are there any other cyclone separator option in same price range as SDD XL?

Thanks for the replys.
