JDS 3 HP Dust Collector

WOOD magazine rating


The 13.3” impeller provides 2300 CFM of pulling power and is powered by a 220V, single phase, 3 HP motor. The motor is totally enclosed and has thermal overload protection, so it will stand up to the day long demands of the hard working small shop environment. The dust collector has an 8” inlet which is ideal for central system ductwork or an adapter that has three 4” openings for direct to the source collection hoses. The 3HP Dust-Force is the perfect combination of power, performance, and convenience.

WOOD magazine review

Good suction, but needs better filtration

Review Summary

Made with heavy-duty components, the Dust-Force 2500 does a good job of collecting dust. It overcame 8.25" of static-pressure resistance at 800 CFM, the minimum needed for a small-shop duct system. This ranked it fourth-best among nine collectors we tested, and third-best among single-stage units. At 1250 CFM it could still overcome 5" of SP loss, a respectable performance.
Although we sealed leaks around the bag rims with foam weather stripping, fine dust continued to escape into the shop air. At times it was allowing 16 times more fine dust particles to escape than the best-performing cyclone, but as it built up a dust cake, the Dust Force closed that gap by a quarter before leveling off. (To be fair, this still falls below the federal dust-containment standards established by NIOSH.) If you prefer more-efficient canister filters, get this machine in that configuration for a $400 upcharge.
