Topic tags/keywords: grizzly g1029z2 cyclone duct

I just purchased a used Grizzly G1029z2 and I am planning the addition of a cyclone and ductwork.

My question is below with some details following the question.

Question:
Does anyone have any experience they can share connecting a Super Dust Deputy (5” or XL) to the Grizzly G1029z2 (or other 2HP blower). And if yes – what size and type of ductwork did you use?

I am wondering if I can use the Super Dust Deputy XL with a 6” mainline ductwork or have to use the Super Dust Deputy 5” with 5” mainline ductwork.

Background info:
Grizzly G1029z2 = 6” intake
Super Dust Deputy 5” 5” intake 6” outlet Oneida recommends a minimum operating airflow of 350 CFM
Super Dust Deputy XL 6” intake 6” outlet Oneida recommends a minimum operating airflow of 850 CFM

Note:
Speaking with Oneida they said given my 6” inlet on the G1029z2 I could go either way. They have some conflicting advice in that they suggest 1) if you have a 1-3HP DC go with the Super Dust Deputy 5” and 2) if you have a 6” inlet then you can go with the Super Dust Deputy XL.

General Plans:
Workshop is in a detached garage – No heat and no AC
Dedicated 220 circuit
Place blower on top of cyclone
Will vent outside
Longest run will be about 20’ hard duct + 4-6’ of flex
4’ of straight hard duct run leading into the cyclone
Will use one tool at a time

Go and read all the notes on ClearView from Bill Pentz

I was considering the 5 inch SDD when I had my 1 3/4 Jet, but went overboard for the CV 5 HP. When in doubt, get a bigger hammer.

I think your DC will support 6” ducting just fine. My first cyclone set up was a shop built model (Wood magazine plans) hooked to a 2.5 HP PSI DC. There was enough air flow even after I installed the cyclone to support 6”. Another thing to keep in mind, if you plan on PVC ductwork you can’t get 5” (in thinwall). Even 6” can be a pain to find at times.

I have the G0548ZP which I believe is yours with the upgraded filter. “I have it married to this 6 cyclone.

Sux like I need it to. I ended up trying metal stove pipe, it didn’t suck, but it sure did suck. PIA suck. I swapped to plumbing PVC, and waste line PVC, much easier to work with, and works much much better, just spendy on Y’s and bends.

Mine is set on a run that is probably less then 20’ in total serving TS, Jointer, planer one at a time, works very well. I’ve currently got it torn down, and it’s a PIA without it trying to keep clean.

This was helpful – thank you.
Where did you purchase your 6” pipe and fittings?
