I would also like to know if anyone has done an actual airflow test to verify that the Rikon impeller develops more cfm when installed in a HF DC? The Rikon 2hp DC is listed as developing 1250cfm airflow so is everyone just assuming that the larger diameter impeller moves more air or has it been proven? The specs show 300cfm less airflow.

As far as I can tell, there have never been nameplates on the hf units. The tech I talked to the other day told me that there should be a sticker near the on/off switch that states 15 or 20 amps. I didn’t see one on the unit I was looking at, but I could have missed it. Here’s some information that may help answer your airflow question.

Scroll down to the video posted by Brent to see a nice modded DC project.
