Grizzly G0440 vs. G0441 Cyclones
I hate to start another thread about DC but, its time to get on with it so I'll try to be specific. The curve, cost and size differences of the 440 vs. the 441 doesn't seem to match the $450 price difference. Knowing full well that this is one of the areas where bigger is better (and I fully support that view) I will ask:
Anyone with a 2HP (or machine in this performance range) cyclone that has remorse over not going that extra bit to get a 3HP?
The $450 is a decent chunk when comparing the machines only. The difference starts to become less distinct if you look at the total cost of an installation. I am specifically trying to avoid that "I should have" syndrome.
My shop is about 21 x 31. 10" TS under and over, 8" jointer, 13" planer, 17" under and over & 10" under only BS, RT under and over, a pair of DP's, belt disc sander and what-not. I may re-deploy the current 1 HP unit to "jointer or jointer/planer status only" so the bulk of DC need would then be the TS, Large BS and RT.
TIA for your time and input.
