WOOD magazine review

Good a collecting dust, not so much at filtering

Review Summary

The G0562Z moves dust nicely, but with the most leaks (of the nine dust collectors we tested head-to-head) around welds, connections, and bag rims, it also sent much of the fine dust back into the air. Despite pleated canister filters rated to trap particles as fine as 1 micron, the G0562Z allowed five times more dust to escape than the best-performing single-stage collector we tested, and about 15 times more than the best filtering cyclone.
However, it ranked third-best in airflow, overcoming 9" of static-pressure loss at 800 CFM, the minimum needed to power a small-shop duct network. At 1200 CFM it could still overcome 5" of SP loss, so this machine does a great job of collecting dust and chips and getting them into the bags/canisters. Made of the lightest-gauge steel among the group we tested, this machine displays more wobble than others when moving around the shop.
