I pretty much have one of the worst case scenarios for Dust Collection.
I use all corrugated tubing and a trash can dust collector.
I've got a little bigger dust collector. I think 1.5 horse? Not sure. It's a dewalt with 2 4" inlets.
All that being said, I've got no complaints. It sucks the dust and keeps the air clean.
I keep it right by the garage door, just in case. I once had a capacitor on it go up in flames while it was running. I used to have the DC wedged in a corner, but after that, I keep it where I can get it out side in a hurry and doused with a fire extinguisher.
