I have one of the HF 1 1/2hp dust collectors, has a diameter for the bottom bag of 20” and can not find the bags from HF. Anyone know of another source? Thanks in advance, Clarkie.

Any 40gal+ 3mil+ thick plastic trashbag works, but the 6mil work best and can be reused occasionally.

Best Luck.

Here are the official Jet ones – the HF machine is basically a clone:
Collection Bag, Clear Plastic 20 inch Diameter - pack of 5
(less than $20 on amazon for a 5 pack of reusable clear)

So HF sells the bags, but you have to call this number to get them. 1-800-444-3353 No online order link.

At the bottom of the page to the right of product overview, it will say (Replacement Parts In Stock)

View Available Parts is this link. Says bags come in a 3 pack for $8.88

Not sure where you are, but I bought a heavy duty reusable canvas type one a few years back from Canadian Woodworkers in Edmonton.

As I have had mine blow off twice, I was boing to replace them with a steel garbage can, but now I will be adding a cyclone, it will probably be a 5 gallon bucket or just a box I make. As I forget to clean the canister, ( most likely the reason for my blowouts) I am thinking about a small motor, couple of bike sprockets and a simple timer to spin the flappers after it turns off. They make such a device, but very expensive.

Have your say...
