I have had this machine for about a year now. Works great for my 400sqft
shop. Has all the suction I need for running two machines at once.
That said, I had a problem when it first arrived. The first motor was
defective and blew a breaker every time I turned it on. They sent out a
replacement motor immediately, but when it arrived, it was a 2 hp and not
the 1.5 hp I needed, so they shipped out the correct motor the third try.
Since then, not a single problem.
Their tech support was great to work with through the motor debacle. :-)
Got the 2 HP Shop Fox DC from Toolcorral about 8 months ago and it works
well. No mechanical problems to date and all fit together as intended.
While the standard bags work fine with saw dust and wood chips, they appear
a little too porous when collecting the fine dust produced with solid
surface (Corian) materials. Perhaps, I need a finer mesh bag for this
I have the 2hp/1550cfm ShopFox and couldn't be happier. It REALLY sucks! I
still use the 30micron bags, but with as far away from anything that I have
it set up, it isn't a problem at all. No, I don't have a huge shop, just am
able to put the DC on the other side of the basement stairs.
The only problem was a bad start capacitor that, among other things, fried
the motor. A new motor was shipped to me the next day with no questions
asked and the thing was sucking again in 3 days. Damned good service, if you
