    I agree. Trying to move that sounds like a big hassle and pain in the butt. Plus, you have that big filter in the middle of everything as well.

    I think it really depends on how strong your dust collector is. With 8" main, I would think you need at least a 15" impeller (but a 16" is likely recommended with 5HP motor). An 8" main is a really...
