Bought this filter unit at a garage sale,
brand new in box for $40. I don’t have
anything to compare it with but I’m amazed
at how much dust accumulates on the outer
filter. I’m also running a HF dust collector. The unit has a 5 mic. outer and 1 mic. inner
filters,3 speeds, & remote control. For $40 anything
that keeps dust out of my lungs is worth
buying. It’s a perfect size for my small
basement shop with low ceilings. Menards is selling them for $160
& I believe they have replacement
filters. I know it’s not top of the line but
does what I need and price was right.

Great yard sale Score.
I’m not familiar with it’s efficiency, but if there is duct collecting on the filters, then it’s NOT collecting in your lungs.

Sounds like you stole this one. Gr8 deal. And, definitely, saving your lungs is a good idea

Looks like the same unit that Grizzly and Rikon sell. I wonder if the filters are all interchangeable?

I put one of these in my small shop and changed the filter to an electrostatic one. Cost was a bit high I think like $60 (for the filter) but it really catches the dust and it’s washable. Plus I put it on a timer so when I leave the shop it runs for up to an hour and then shuts off. Great find, your lungs will thank you!!!

WildmanJack where did you get the electrostatic filter? I just bought 2 of the 5 micron paper ones but would prefer an electrostatic one once these are used up. Do you know what the filtration rate is in microns? Thanks for any help you can give. TB

I know this is a really old post but do you still run this filter? Can you still get filters for it.

Have your say...
