Like I posted, it’s a heavy bugger. I unpacked it outside, and carried it (in pieces) from my garage, down the stairs, into my basement. Pretty good workout carrying the head downstairs… HF sells two 17” 16 speed floor standing models, if you want the lower speed (200 vs 220 rpm), get item # 43889. I originally thought I might have to upgrade to link belts (like I did on the HF 14” bandsaw), but the stock belts run great.

As far as the HF DC, there were none in any store within 110 miles of my house. I ended up scoring one off CL for $100. But, after all the mods, IMHO, you would be better off with the Grizzly unit. Lot of bang for the buck. See my thread on modding the HF collector:
