Thumbs up Fwiw

I have owned an Oneida 3hp dust collector gorilla pro for four years. I used their design services and purchased all parts to connect to ten machines. I am very happy overall. Their design was right on the money.

I did have to remove the remote RF antennae from inside the contactor to outside for better response.

Their IR alarm does not work and I tried with two new ones. I added a plexiglass window to the dust bin. Due to the vortex the bin fills around the sides long before the center does. I empty when my window is blocked which is about half full which I prefer since it is easier to empty.

It is a bit loud so I installed sound mitigation blankets around it which knocks the noise down 12db which is tolerable. My shop is heated and air conditioned so putting it outside would be expensive. It does warm the shop in the winter since the 3hp motor puts out some heat.
