I’ve decided to sell my new Harvey Gyro G700 dust collector. It is new but it is not the dust collector for me. It is located in Oak Island NC and available for pick up only. I’m firm on the price at $2450 or higher if there is a bidding war. The machine weighs about 500 lbs thus you will need four strong guys to load it or a ramp that can safely handle the 20” wide machine. It is on wheels and very easy to move within the shop.

Details can be seen on the Woodcraft website at https://www.woodcraft.com/products/gyro-air-dust-processor-g700-harvey-supply-remote-controll

Not in the market due to tiny shop but I’ll go first and ask. Why is it not working out for you? I am sure the buyer would want to ask.

When I originally checked the CFM requirement for all of my tools somehow I missed two. The max CFM for the G700 in a 4” line is 700 CFM, I’m running a 6” main with 4” and 5” drops. My drum sander requires a min of 600 CFM thus it really needs more. I’m working on a drum sander that will require somewhere between 1000 and 1200.

The manual states the main inlet size is six inches, which means you should be able to get a six inch hose on there. which would increase the surface area of the hose by 2.25, which could give you a theoretical CFM of 1,575. Which is more than the Max of 1100, so you would probably be able to see 1,100 if you used 6 inch hose. With all that being said, Ive got a friend that lives an hour and a half away from you and Id be willing to risk all my assumptions that it will work for what I need, if the price were right :) He could be there tomorrow, it could be out of your hair.

Yes, the inlet is 6”, Harvy supplies a clear plastic wye fitting with 6” on one end and two 4” ports on the other end.
Yes, I could use a 6” pipe on the G700 but it would be reduced to 4” on most of my tools. My planner/joiner (Hammer A3-31) has a 120mm (4.72”) port. Per the manual, it needs a min of 479 CFM. I’m not sure what I’m getting but not enough because I have chips that are not being collected. In the manual, it states “In order to hinder the build-up of dust, it is necessary to have a vacuum system with sufficient capacity.”

I had conducted a lot of research on the dust collector I wanted. At the end of my research, I discovered the G700 and did NOT fully check the specs. This of course was a dumb move on my part.

I have seen setups where a 6” pipe was connected to the G700 and that was the main run.

I just sent you a private message with contact info.
Looking forward to seeing you.
