WOOD magazine review

Compact cyclone proves ideal for basement shops

Review Summary

I’ve always wanted a cyclone dust collector for my low-ceiling basement shop, but most models simply stand too tall. Grizzly’s G0703 portable cyclone measures only 65-1⁄2" tall—fitting easily in my shop—and rolls around smoothly on casters. But that doesn’t make the G0703 a lightweight. It’s made of beefy 18-gauge steel with a 1-1⁄2-hp, 110-volt motor; a respectable 695 cfm of air flow through 5" duct; and a fine-filtering, 2-micron, pleated canister that trapped all dust.
I measured the noise level from 3' away and found it produced 85 decibels, loud enough to wear hearing protection. But in the ground-floor room directly above, that measurement dropped to a hardly noticeable 60dB. I hooked up this collector to all of my stationary machines with 13' of 5" flex-hose—using the included reducer to step down the G0703’s 6" inlet and another to fit the machines’ 4" ports—and it cleared the dust and chips from each tool with ease. —Tested by Jan Svec
