I have a 2hp Grizzly dust collector with 4” lines in my 600sqft shop. I’m very happy with an affordable $35 grizzly separator that goes on a 30 gal metal garbage can. I have been running a few hundred board feet of lumber each month through my planer, jointer and widebelt sander and can’t imagine a much better system as I can quickly empty the can 2-3 times per hour and only fill the plastic bag on my collector every 6-8 months.

I just watched an informative video from the wood whisperer and he evaluated 3 different units that all cost way more than mine but didn’t seem to preform better. I personally couldn’t imagine how frustrating it would be to have any smaller than a 30 gallon collector when some of the units he reviewed only held 5 gallons.

I think your dust collector size, hose length, wood volume and machine uses will all be big factors in what will work for you

Good luck
