Quality Product
Being a wood worker and with all the information out there regarding the dangers of small wood dust particles I encourage anyone to use one of these. When the sun shines through the windows in the morning you can see the dust floating. I turned on this unit and within an hour or two I no longer saw the dust floating. It is a well made machine and I do not find it to be loud.

They keep getting better
This is my third filtration system and is the best started with delta then jet and now this still use all three in different locations and prefer this one so is in the main shop.
Better circulation, wireless remote is way handier and the standard filter size is only way to go

High Quality Product
I hung this unit from the workshop ceiling over a workbench. I love the 3 speeds and radio remote control. The timer helps so I don't have to worry about remembering to turn off the unit when I am done, I simply set the timer & walk out of the workshop allowing it to clean the air & shut off automatically. I am struck by the high quality of this unit. It is a touch heavy though I did install it myself but wouldn't recommend doing so to others. I wish it was a tad quieter, though it is not overbearing or obnoxious.

Hard to believe that you can still get something that you instantly say "WOW!" when you unpack it and use it for the first time. This unit is worth every penny! It does what the manufacturer claims. One look and you'll know it's a quality product. I'm a Maintenance Supervisor and work with different products daily, getting promises all the time about how "this" product or machine works the best. You won't be sorry on this one. I'm impressed!

excellent addition to my shop.
a little more expensive than competition and worth every penny. powerful, efficient and relatively quiet. love the delayed shut off and 3 speed fan. low is all you need for normal operations but when sanding the high speed cleans the air quickly and throughly.

Very solid.
While it is the quietest one I could find, it is still too loud to sit in the shop and relax with it going. I am glad I bought this one though, because I certainly didn't want a louder one. Also, just an FYI--there is a 5-inch antenna (I'm assuming for the remote) dangling loose from the side of the thing that isn't pictured or explained anywhere on the documentation. It also seemed to have one of the largest ranges of times available for its auto-off function, which was nice. I wish there had been separate low, medium, and high buttons, so you didn't have to punch through low and medium to get to high.

Easy To Use
A must have for home shops
The first line of defense is a good dust collection setup at each machine. This is the second part of a good system, as it catches all the airborne particles. I have 2 in my basement shop, and while they are noisy, I can still hear my radio. I turn mine on when I enter the shop, and set the timer when I leave. You will notice a big difference in dust on flat surfaces if you use this every time.

Finally, clean air in my shop
Installed in less than an hour, finally clean air. Filters dust from shop equipment operations. I read a lot of comments about how loud the filteration unit was. In comparison to other operating equipment, I thought it was relatively quite. May be the size of the shop.

The stick on molding on the side was off when I unpacked the unit. Reapplied only to have it fall off 2 more times. Come on Powermatic, you can do better that this!!! The tape on the back had been installed in pieces from the factory. Not the way to dress out a quality piece of equipment.

clean air in a few short minutes
After aggressive machine sanding, this unit clears the air in my 1800 S.F. shop in just under five minutes I set the timer for an hour on low after I lock up. The next day there is practically no dust clinging to anything.

Seems much better made than comparable units. Very quiet, even on high; super quiet on low. Other reviews made me skeptical of the sound and quality in comparison to units that are $100 less expensive. I think this unit is larger and with better components, overall, having held other brands, and 'looked inside' the box. & Yes, the paint is also pretty, and the chrome strips are shiny (mine are not falling off, at all).
