By quickly and quietly cleaning and filtering 90 percent of all five-micron particles and 80 percent of all one-micron particles, the 708620B ensures a cleaner and healthier shop environment. This system works via a two-filter process: an outer filter removes larger particle while the inner, three-pocket filter traps smaller particles. The end result is less dust and debris compromising air quality in your shop.
Three Speeds and Timer Settings for Efficient Filtration
The system's three-speed (550, 702, and 1044 CFM) motor gives you the flexibility to choose the most efficient air filtration for your shop. For added convenience, the remote control lets you control all the system's functions while it hangs from a ceiling or is placed high up on a shelf. Built-in timer settings for two, four, and eight hours will shut off automatically at the end of the designated time, cleaning the air in your shop even while you're away.
Ball bearing Motor for Fast, Powerful Performance
Thanks to the fully-enclosed, 1/6 HP, ball-bearing motor with overload protection, the 708620B has the capability of filtering the air in a shop measuring 20 x 20 x 8 feet in less than five minutes. It can also filter the air in that same-size shop over 12 times an hour.
Easy-Care Design for Fast Clean-Up
The 708620B is easy to clean. The electrostatic outer filter withstands several washings, and the inner filter can be blown clean simply with compressed air. For added convenience, this handy machine also features grip handles for portability and rubber feet to prevent marring your work surface.
Durable Construction and Electrostatic Filter for Better Performance
Constructed of a heavy-duty, powder-coated metal box, and featuring a powerful motor and fan, the 708620B offers exceptional durability for years of use. For reliable performance, it also comes standard with an electrostatic filter that is electronically charged to attract many more dust particles than other standard filters.
The 708620B measures 30.25 x 24 x 12 inches (WxHxD), weighs 54 pounds, and is backed by a five-year warranty.
About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.
What's in the Box
One air filtration system, one remote control, two "AAA" batteries, four eye bolts and nuts, four mounting brackets, eight hex cap screws, eight lock washers, four foam pads, one Velcro pad, and one manual and warranty card.

My ultimate test was sanding a large maple table top. I'll describe what it was like doing this before and after I got the Jet system.
BEFORE: My shop measures 30' long by 20' wide. Before I had this machine (when I had no air filtration system at all) whenever I sanded a table top the shop got filled with dust really quickly. Even after I stopped sanding, the dust hung in the air for maybe half an hour. And the next day, I'd come into the shop and see a thin layer of dust settled on everything.
AFTER: Now that I use this machine, the air never gets as dusty as it used to (even in the middle of sanding). Also, within five minutes after I'm done sanding, the air is crystal clear. By leaving the machine on after I'm all done, whatever dust remains is taken care of. The next day, coming into the shop, there is no dust on anything.

As a final note, I give it four stars because the remote does not allow 360-degree access. But this is a relatively small matter with such a great machine.
The low speed is very quiet, and it starts gently, which is really nice for a unit that hangs from the ceiling. You can mount it on a wall too. It comes with hardware for both types of mounting, but no chains. Not only are batteries included, Jet even includes two pieces of velcro to stick the remote somewhere!
Having a remote makes this a piece of cake to turn on/off. The LED's on the unit are large, so it is easy to see what settings are on (Speed: low, medium, high and Time: 2, 4, 8 hours).
I purchased the Jet AFS-1000 about a year ago and it has been among the best workshop investments I've ever made. The air in my shop has been crystal clear most of the time for the past year.
I bought this unit after reading numerous reviews - just like you are doing now - and decided on this one because of the features it offers. Two of the best features are the remote control and the timer.
As suggested in the instruction manual, I ceiling mounted the unit. The ceilings in my shop are 9'6" so it would have been impractical to use a control that was mounted on the unit proper. Some units offer a switch on the power cord, but that would entail letting the cord dangle so that you could reach the in-line switch. Jet solved this dilema by equipping this unit with an infra-red remote control. Yes, just like your television, you must have line-of-sight between the remote and the control panel on the filter, but I find this not to be a problem at all. With the remote, you are able to control all functions of the filter including, on & off, the 3 speeds, and the timer.
Speaking of the timer, most times when I am going to be producing sawdust, I just set the timer for 4 or 8 hours and forget it. When I'm finished for the day, I just walk away and let the unit continue to clean the air until it automatically shuts off. The next time I come into the shop, the air is clean and there is much less sawdust coating my machinery, etc.
If you do much woodworking at all, you need an air filtration system. Do yourself a favor and get this one, it's among the best available.
I hung it from my shop ceiling with no problem except that the power cord was a measly 6 feet long and exits the case at the bottom. So, 1 foot to the top of the case, another to the ceiling and you can see there's not much power cord left. A few extra feet on the cord would have cost JET pennies and make it much easier on the installer.
The next problem I encountered was that the marvelous little remote only works when it can "see" the back of the air cleaner, where the manual control panel is located. So in order to turn my air cleaner on I have to get my remote in hand and walk the length of my shop to stand in back of the unit (where I could easily reach up and turn it on manually). JET should have made sure that the antenna pattern was as close to 360 degrees as they could get, or included a jack on the control panel for the user to add their own antenna. This oversight makes the remote's value questionable.
In some of the previous reviews I read that the filters are standard size but there is no discovering this by reading the manual that came with the unit!
Overall, I'm glad I bought this unit and would recommend it to anyone. Your lungs will definitely thank you!
