Would the 110V Shop Fox or the PSI Long Ranger remote work with the Harbor
Freight 100VAC Dust Collector? Each remote states 1.5hp and the Long Ranger
states 20amp peak.
Any experience using one of these (or another) with the Harbor Freight DC?
HF published specs are below.
Motor: 2 HP, 110V, 14 amps, single phase
Peak Current: 20amp
RPM = 3450
Air flow: 1600 CFM
These specs are often overstated and at least the PSI unit matches the 20amp
surge. I was wondering if anyone had hooked one up with no problems.
I have been using my Long Ranger with my 1.5 HP Penn State DC for over
10 years and it is still going strong. I bought the Long Ranger after
converting the DC over to 240 volts. The Long Ranger comes in 120 or
240 volts, but not all DCs are convertable.
Check out the X10 controller. It might be cheaper and more flexible.
I use mine for the DC, compressor, and various overhead lights.
The AM466 module is rated 15A 1/3 HP, but I have them
controlling a Jet DC1100C and a Sears 1/2 HP compressor.
No problems for a year. I keep wireless remotes at the
table saw and workbench by the shop door.
