I am in the same predicament as jamsomito with some confusion about the two dust collectors. I went to my local harbor freight today, bought what I thought was the “green” model. Although the box had the proper model #97869, I couldn’t find anything on the box stating the motor was 20 amps. Then, upon opening the box, I noticed the color of the unit was grey! It did have the solid base, though. However, I could not verify the 20 amp rating anywhere on the unit itself. Has anyone had this same experience? Has the shift been made to all 15 amp grey units now, no matter the item number (97869 or 61790)? Second question: has anyone upgraded to the rikon impeller with the 15 amp unit? Can it handle the load?
