I didn't have a choice, but I would still do it above. With a cyclone, the inlet is already up high anyway. The only way to do it low is if there was a basement to the shop and the cyclone was down stairs. Come to think about it, the pipe would still be high in the basement, but come through the floor in the shop!! Now if I could build the shop of my dreams, it would probably be with a basement that the mechanicals would be in, and have a drive out door so lawn tractors and tools could be stored there as well, then the shop would be a little less cluttered.

At a minimum, I'm Pentatoxic...but most likely, I'm a Pentaholic. There seems to be no known cure. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3
