I’m in the market for a dust collector and one of the ones I’ve looked at is the G0562ZP. The problem is. It’s too long for my space. Am I crazy to consider lopping off one of the filter/bag sides? Would that hurt it’s performance?

Thanks,

Don’t do it. The air flow in a 2 filter machine needs both to work. Going to 1 filter will restrict airflow, hurting results. Go with a 1 filter machine that fits.

I have been using the G0548Z DC for years and it really sucks :^)

Pretty much half of the one you referenced…. and don’t compare it to the HF unit as it has a true 2 HP (220 v) motor and a much larger impeller.

Thanks, Matt. I’ve been going between the two.
