very pleased

Review Summary

Although not my original choice I decided to go with this unit due to good reviews and an outstanding price. Assembly instructions were fair, the finish was "ok". By "ok" I mean that I would have thought the the bottom side of the base would have been painted too. Customer service was great. I didn't have any questions, but recieved two phone calls from them prior to shipping, making certain that I was getting what I wanted.
I thought this was extremely thoughful of them.

Review Summary

I've had my Pennstate dust collector for about 4 years and it's a great machine, it's just a little too tall. All my equipment in my 2 car "garage" shop are on mobile bases so I can move my woodworking equipment around to be able to pull my truck in an work on it. I had to raise the florescent lights in my shop so I could roll the collector around without knocking the lights out. Once I did that I've had no problem with it whatsoever.
I have it connected to all my equipment with blast gates; my table saw, drill press, osculating spindle sander, 2 wood lathes an 8" jointer and my miter saw. Even if I leave a gate open there is still plenty of suction to run another piece of equipment or two. I do recommend installing a chip collector to save the impeller blades from large pieces and get the clear bags for the bottom of the unit, they are sturdy enough to reuse and the sawdust/chips make great mulch!
