    I just hooked mine up to the duct work now that it's in place and it moves a lot of air, especially when cranked up. I suspect that most of the time, I'll be able to run it at about 5500 on the display and only crank it up to 7200 when milling on the J/P. I will not suggest that it's quiet when cranked up, but it's not the "big roar" that my previous 2hp Oneida made. It's a different sound for sure.

    I'm eying this DC or the Oneida Supercell Stationary "High-Pressure" DC to replace an aging 1.5HP Laguna that has served me well. It's footprint vs. noise at this point as I'm sure both will more than satisfy my needs. Next time Harvey has a sale, I'll make the decision I guess!

    Yea, watch it carefully...I missed out on $2500 but at least got $2600 the following week.

    I registered with Harvey and they are bombarding me with daily ads. Five weeks away from the move I passed on the 7% discount offered last week. I didn’t want to have to receive the unit here and then have to move it. Jim, at around 5500 is it fairly quiet? Hard to describe sound, but my 1.5 hp Grizzly cyclone just howls and being in a neighborhood I hope the 700 is an improvement.

    I ordered a bandsaw from them and asked that they hold off on shipping for 4 weeks, they were very accommodating.

    So at about 5500 on the speed setting I would not represent that the machine is "quiet", but it's a noticeably different kind of sound than the "roar" of the cyclone I used to use. It's "less unpleasant". I had a 1.5hp Delta similar to your Grizzly in the temporary gara-shop with an SDD and it was much louder than the G700. The G700 doesn't scream/howl for sure. It's a little louder now that it has a full ductwork network as compared to the smaller ductwork system that was in the temporary gara-shop. The latter was pretty much the equivalent of the two drops that go to the J/P and the slider. There's a LOT more duct now and it does increase the noise level a little. But it would with any system, honestly.
