WOOD magazine review

Adequate but not great airflow and filtration

Review Summary

The only single-stage collector in our test of five dual-filter units with its motor and impeller not positioned on the base, but rather at the height midpoint, the 50-761 demonstrated less airflow than all but one other unit. Because of this design, you’ll have to add an additional 90° fitting to hook up ceiling-mounted duct, adding more resistance. In our testing, the 50-761 overcame 5.5" of static-pressure loss at 800 CFM—the minimum airflow needed to power a small-shop duct system.
This placed it fifth among the similar single-stage collectors we tested. At 1100 CMF it could overcome 3" of SP loss. Its two felt filter bags fared okay at filtering out fine dust particles greater than 2 microns, but allowed 14 times more fine dust to escape than did the best cyclone we tested and four times more than the best single-stage collector.
