Help protect your health with the Delta 50-760 1-1/2-Horsepower, 1,200-CFM Dust Collector. Thanks to one-micron filtration bags, a powerful motor, replaceable dust ports, easy maneuverability, durable construction, and more, the 50-760 provides dependable dust collection for a clean work environment. And even with its powerful suction capability, this dust collector is surprisingly quiet.
Unique, volume-saving vertical design and easy-gliding wheels offer maneuverability.
With two four-inch replaceable dust ports and an upper filter bag that has the ability to filter out pollutants measuring just one micron in size, this dust collector efficiently extracts fine, invisible dust particles from the air. Much airborne dust--including wood dust--contains chemicals that can trigger severe allergic reactions in humans. And long-term exposure to dust can cause a measurable, sometimes permanent loss of respiratory capacity. This is why it is so important to protect yourself from dust that can lead to health problems down the road.
Powerful Dust Collector Goes Where You Go
Designed to work as efficiently as possible, the 50-760 features a 1.5-horsepower, 3,450-RPM, 120/240-volt, 60-hertz, single-phase induction motor, which moves up to 1,200 cubic feet of air per minute. And without compromising any of that power, this dust collector has a unique, volume-saving vertical design.
So you can clean any work surface or area in your shop, and to make storage a snap, the 50-760 sits on heavy-duty casters, a sturdy steel base, and four glide wheels to allow for easy maneuverability without floor damage. For added convenience, the motor housing can be mounted with the dust ports facing up or down.
The 50-760 measures 35.5 x 20.0 x 18.0 inches (WxHxD) and weighs 95.6 pounds.
Quick-Change Bags Simplify Dust Collection
In addition to the one-micron filtration bag, this collector uses transparent, plastic chip collection bags that make it easy to see when it's time for a bag change. For added convenience, two snap-in bag rings are included for quick and easy bag changes without cam-over-lock clamps.

Top Customer Reviews
Here's my experience:
1. SHIPPING/SETUP: The unit came UPS in a large heavy box that had obviously been tossed around. I took pictures in case of hidden damage, but there was just one tiny dent in the blower housing. All parts were present, printed directions were sufficient, and setup was quick and easy. I did it alone, but it would have been much easier at one or two points to have had some assistance as it is fairly heavy. The motor/impeller housing design is unique to Delta-- most manufacturers separate the two and use a flexible hose with a 90 degree elbow to connect to the impeller. Delta's design is more efficient and allows for easily connecting a separator (see below).
2. NOISE: The sound of all the air moving is really the bulk of the noise, not the motor. It certainly is way less annoying than the whine of a wet/dry vac. That said, having learned my lesson as a musician, I always use ear protection, so it is a non-issue with me. I can say, that my workshop is in an unfinished basement directly below my wife's home office. She says it sounds something like a vacuum running off in the distance, but has no trouble with it.
3. ELECTRICAL HOOKUP: This is a 110v unit, but really needs its own 20amp circuit. At best, trying to run big draw units like dust collectors, table saws, etc. on the same circuit at the same time will just mean constant runs to the service panel to reset the breaker.
4. STOCK, SINGLE TOOL COLLECTION: I first tried the unit "stock" with the supplied felt filter and plastic collection bags. Both bags install fairly easily, the length of the supplied 4" hose is a bit short for realworld application, but sufficient for trials. Hooked to the port on my 10" contractor-type table saw, there was a noticeable improvement in the quantity of material collected compared to the 6hp Rigid wet/dry vac with 2- 1/2" hose I had been using. Some material will still escape from the top of the saw, but this a function of not having an over the saw port, not a problem with the Delta collector. Actually, with the DC left running, I could see dust from the top of the saw that was in the air pulled in through the various openings in the front/side of the saw! Attached to the "big gulp" hood I have on the back of my miter saw, the Delta got 99% of the chips/dust. The biggest dust maker in my shop is my router table (I don't have a jointer/planer), and connected to just the top 2- 1/2" port with an adapter, the Delta was getting most of the dust once again.
5. DUST COLLECTOR PARTNERS: No dust collector will get every chip and spec of dust, nor should it be used for every application, so:
--I always run a HEPA filter equipped air filter continuously when I'm in the shop, and set it to run for a few hours after I leave. This takes care of the finest, most unhealthy particles put into the air by tools and by just walking around. I use a Honeywell unit, but there are several good options out there.
--I still use the Rigid shop vac for general clean up and for attaching to small power tools with dust ports. Reducing to these 1- 1/4" tool ports from the large DC ports just is not effective. Dust collectors work by moving large volumns of air: something that just isn't going to happen with small diameter hose. Wet/dry vacs work by moving a much smaller volume of air but at much higher static pressures-- that's why their effectiveness is not lowered as appreciably by attaching them to the smaller ports.
6. TWEAKS FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE & SAFETY: I haven't measured with fancy equipment, but observation and use tells me the following tweaks have made for a better dust collection system:
--If you don't use it, it doesn't matter how powerful it is. I located the collector as close as possible to my main tools: table saw, miter saw, router table, downfeed sanding table. The longest hose run I have is about 8'. Each tool is enclosed/hooded to direct dust to the dust port, gated, with 4" diameter hose runs to each tool, with a "T" at the router table to run a 4" port to the enclosed router under the table, and a 2-1/2 port at the router fence above. Each gate is easily reachable from all tool stations, so turning on the DC unit and the opening the appropriate gate is a snap. I have an "open" gate and 4" hose for running to the drill press or big gulp for "situational" dust collection as needed as well. Total additional cost, about $75.
--Built a Phil Thien style separator from a 30 gallon metal trash can to keep large objects and stray metal (sparks) away from the collector's impeller. If you haven't already seen his simple modification, there's lots of samples/info on line. I bought a 5" to 4" adapter from a big box store for a few bucks, built the baffle from scrap lumber with a 4" outlet on top and used a 4" elbow epoxied into the side of can for the inlet. Fits right on the Delta's cart, slips right on the 5" port on the impeller housing, with just a couple of turns of tape to seal it. Maybe $25.
--Replaced the stock Delta cloth filter bag with a Wynn cartridge filter. Better filtration of fine particles, more efficient air flow (more dust collected),easier to clean (just give it a few whacks with your hand, and the dust falls into the collection bag). At around $130 delivered, it was easy to install and cheaper than the Delta cartridge filter.
To get 5 stars for me would be better fit (casters, stand, inlet port) and a more useful hose, all of which are detailed in the video.

The waste is collected in a clear plastic bag that is secured to the machine with a metal strap and clamp. Removing the bag, when it is full, is no problem. Just unlock the clamp and the bag will come right off the flange. The fun starts when you try and put it back on.
The plastic bag is larger than the metal flange and has no drawstring. You have to fit it around the flange, fold the excess over and hold it while you try and get the metal clamping ring over, or around, the bag and up onto the flange. Lots of luck, you need three hands. I have found the only way that I can do this by myself is to tape the folded portion of the bag and hope that it will hold long enough for me to get the clamp ring installed. Sometimes it does and most of the time is does not. At the moment, instead of the supplied clear plastic bag I use a large, heavy duty garbage bag. This has a drawstring to hold it place while I install the clamp. This works but the downside is that you can not see how full the bag is.
I like the dust collector but I need a plan B for replacing the bag. If I can come up with something I will modify this review. AS things stand now, I would suggest that you look at other brands.
UPDATE! After a month and a half of steady use I'm still thrilled with this machine. It's quiet, it sucks up pretty near every bit of sawdust and it's easy to move around if needed. We store a lot of stuff in our garage and it used to be covered in dust from all my woodworking activities. Not anymore! This dust collector has virtually eliminated the dust that I used to have to clean off of all the other tools and storage boxes in the garage. When sanding, I use a dust hood at the end of my workbench and a hose attached to my orbital sander and there's no dust. I don't even have to wear a dust mask when sanding. Again, I highly recommend this tool for the avid woodworker!
