Grizzly G1029Z Dust Collector - Progress report

I mentioned that I had ordered ther G1029Z and a couple of you were interested in how well it gets delivered, so:
Aug 11 - Wed evening, Ordered collector online.
Aug 13 - 9:30 AM Confirmation email received that order was shipped from Springfield, Mo. Estimated delivery August 18. Shipped by Overnite. Also receive another confirmation email of 2 "Free Items for the 1029". I expected the seperator lid but have no idea what the second item is, perhaps the .3 micron bag is being shipped separately. Oh, and a catalogue was shipped.

Must not have been in stock in Springfield. We live about 250 to 300 miles West of Springfield. I ordered my 1023s cabinet saw via their web page one evening and 36 hours later I got a call to pick it up at the local trucking depot. Been pretty happy with them.
Regarding the freebe, do the offer a "gift" with that size of purchase? When I bout the saw they offered a list of items from which you could select up to a value - I think it was $50 for a $800 purchase.

I bought the 8027 and my freebies were a Dust Collection Basics book, a throw-away plastic combination square and a free plan for some yard art, IIRC

arrange a delivery time. I ask if they had it at their terminal and the lady said she did. I was looking for an excuse to drive over to the valley (Waynesboro, VA) anyway, so drove over and picked it up.
And so, not counting the order day since I ordered online late at night, it took FOUR and one half days, two of which were weekend days, from filling the order in Springfield , Mo. to deliver in Waynesboro, Virginia. I think that's pretty remarkable.
I assembled the collector this afternoon. Took about an hour. Excellent workmanship. Only fault I have is the two posts that hold the cyclone are pretty flimsy. Too bad they didn't add a third leg to make it more stable.
