Not me.
But:
1) BORG is not cheapest source:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/WEN-16A-Woodworking-Dust-Collector-with-50-Gallon-Collection-Bag-Mobile-Base/152780803855

2) There are several wonky specifications on that unit?
- No HP rating, just a current/voltage?
- Motor has same rating as 1.5HP 120v motor, but requires 20A plug?
- Impeller is 300mm (11.8”), which means 1500cfm is unreachable specification with no tubing or airflow resistance. But it will suck more cfm than stock HF with standard 10” impeller, and more like the similar Rikon 2HP unit that is rated for ~1200cfm.

Cheers!
