Portability is often key in a small shop that doubles as a parking space or otherwise. If this sums up your workspace, General International's new 10-030CF Portable Dust Collector
could fit right in. Its steel base rolls on a swiveling caster and two 7-in. rubber wheels. At just 67 lbs., it should wheel around with ease. But, while compact, the machine's 1hp (pre-wired for 110 volts), totally enclosed, fan-cooled motor and 10-in. spin-balanced impeller produce 506 CFM -- enough airflow to clear most any single stationary shop machine during use. The unit has a 4-in. hose inlet, and debris is routed into a reusable, see-through plastic bag. A rigid canister filter on top traps particles down to 1 micron; you can clean it by agitating the filter media with a top-mounted crank handle. Three heavy-duty steel supports hold the upper housing and filters in place. General International is currently offering the 10-030CF Portable Dust Collector for $399.99.
