Keep your workspace free of dust and debris with the Shop Fox W1685 dust collector from Woodstock International. For use with woodworking machines, this dust collector is equipped with a 1-1/2-horsepower, single-phase motor that operates at 3,450 revolutions per minute (RPM), along with a heavy-duty, 12-inch steel impeller that moves 1,280 cubic feet of air per minute. This machine has a powder-coated finish that resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear.

6-inch Inlet with Y-Adapter
The W1685 features a 6-inch inlet with a removable Y-fitting with two 4-inch openings. The Y-fitting is used to branch lines to service more than one machine, perfect for those looking for a convenient multi-machine set-up. If two ports are not needed simply remove the fitting to expose a 6-inch inlet or cap-off one of the 4-inch inlets.
The W1685 features a steel impeller to handle the wood debris that passes through to the 2.5 micron filter bag. Unlike plastic impellers, the Shop Fox steel impeller offers long lasting performance.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
1. This is definitely NOT pulling 16 amps. I have it plugged into a remote switch that is only rated at 13 amps and the whole unit is on a 15 amp circuit breaker with other tools (such as my Bosch miter saw) plugged in and running without a problem.
2. The inlet of the dust collector fan is indeed 6" but the outlet is only 5". Typically on equipment like this the outlet is always larger than the inlet which explains why they branch the inlet down to 4" (so you only connect with 4" hose).
3. I posted some pictures for how it looked when it arrived. The box was so banged up that most of the Styrofoam packaging was broken into pieces and many of the parts such as the motor mount were incredibly bent. It took some serious work to straighten them out so I could mount them to the base.
4. Both the filter bag and collector bag were in good shape and are both heavy enough for heavy use.
5. I have the unit pulling through 4" ABS piping and has more than enough suction when running one tool at a time, even at the end of a 30ft. run of overhead pipe.
Luckily for me I purchased this for use with a Dust Deputy XL and am venting the fan outlet to the outside via a roof vent so I am not using the stand or the bags and the fact that most of the product was damaged didn't matter that much to me but it was frustrating all the same. And while I'm sure the shipper caused most of the damage and the late delivery, they should improve the packaging to provide more protection.
Day 1 things I noticed:
-Outside of delivery box had a sticker that said "Now with a 2.5 micron bag". Good
-The lower bag is plastic, the top is cloth.
-The hardest part of assembly was putting the bottom bag on: I finally just put magnets on the bag to keep it up while i put the strap around it.
-The top bag had a slot in it where you feed the belt inside of the bag.
-The Philips screws are for the wheels; count all the bolts of each size and match to the number needed in the manual. All the bolts in the instructions look identical but in real life they're different sizes. The manual required certain amounts of each size and you're given that exact amount. Also the x25 bolts are longer than the x16 so that helps too.
-This is a 16 amp device. My basement has 20 amp, 30 amp and 40 amp breakers but of course the outlet I plugged it into was a measly 15 breaker: lights out!
-This is 16 amps by itself but you should also remember the amps of your table saw or whatever (if they'll be plugged into the same circuit).
-I have an inconvenient outlet that is on a 20 amp breaker. I ran this with a regular orange extension cord and it didn't heat up HOWEVER I ordered a thick 10 awg (10 gauge wire) extension cord for a better safety margin. The extension cord is thicker than the cord on the machine.
-Everything on this unit seems to be heavy steel except the aluminum poles that hold the bag. Very little plastic: just the power switch!
I just have to decide whether to install a higher circuit breaker or just leave it in my laundry room: it's huge and about 75" tall so it might be too big to have in my little shop. It's got more than enough power for my 20' hose.
DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS NEAR THE INTAKE! THIS UNIT IS SO STRONG IT'LL TRULY GRAB AND PULL. THE IMPELLER IS STEEL!
Yep, of course I had to test it. Almost lost a hand, lol. I was shocked at how strong this unit is. 1200+ cfm is massively stronger than the 500 cfm units I grew up around. Seriously, do NOT put your hands or feet near the intake! Don't let the quiet sound fool you.
It has a safety key to keep kids and cats safe. The power switch is the kind that you tap to shut off, pull up to start.
It's super strong.
It's pretty wide and really tall.
Steel, steel and more steel.
Fedex delivered it a day early. Two people can pick up the single box it comes in. Fedex guy got it off the truck alone.
After researching for 2 years I can say: this is the one to get.
No more dust!
