I am trying to decide which one to buy. Both sell on Amazon for 249.99.
Menards has the Jet on sale for 227.98 and with the 36 dollar rebate it
would come to 191.00. With tax it comes to 245.38 before rebate of $36.
Both come with remote control.
My question is the Delta any better than the Jet? They both have similar
specs. I wouldn't doubt if they are manufactured/China by the same factory,
and just painted differently. I hear that anything one gets from
Amazon/FedEx, one takes a chance on it being beat-up and dented. Thanks for
Do yourself a favor...never mind the price...go by from your local
dealer and by a JDS or Delta unit. In my past when I sold tools for a
living, we had several service problems with the Jets. Sold 100's of
the Delta and The JDS units. FYI Both the Delta and JDS are made in
the USA. Buy from your local dealer, save the freight damage hassle,
and have someone to help you and answer your questions. Just my hummble
opinion. The Delta is a great unit and value priced.

On the other hand, I ordered the Jet from Amazon. I got an outstanding
price - it was my first order from Amazon, so I got a discount, I don't
think there was any tax, and shipping was free. Couldn't beat it anywhere
local. I think I paid net $180.
It arrived in perfect condition, and has been working flawlessly for over a
year. I'm using it in my "garage workshop" which is 30'x 30' with 12'
ceilings. Other than being a beast to hoist up to the ceiling to hang it,
it has been excellent.
The thing to consider is the Clean Filter CFM, the Dirty Filter CFM, and the
Blow throught in grams.
Here is that info from a recent comparasion test (not sure the magazine,
have the summary only).
Notice the blow throught for the Jet models.
Delta AP-200 582 402 0.2 (Best Buy)
Delta 50-875 594 437 0.3
JDS 750-ER 664 514 0.3 (Editor's Choice)
Jet AFS-1000B 674 383 0.8
Jet 1500 899 737 0.65
I purchased the JDS and have been very happy.
Blow through is the amount of particles that get past the filters.
I don't have the entire article so I don't know how it was measured.
I do remember that they indicated the larger amounts were a problem.
The Woodteck 923-859 in the article had a blow through of 6.8 grams.
If it were not significant, they probably wouldn't have included it in the
