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.

Top customer reviews
That said, as long as the bag *is* firmly attached, this unit performs just fine, gathering much more dust - and going much longer before needing emptied - than the shop vac I was using before. As such, and given the price, it is a reasonable purchase.
I would recommend that anyone using a dust collection system such as this install the unit in a separate room (if possible) and use a remote control, such as the Long Ranger III (http://www.amazon.com/PSI-Woodworking-LR110-3-110-Volt-Collector/dp/B00004S9AI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448036288&sr=8-1&keywords=long+ranger+III), to minimize noise pollution in your work area. This unit is big and moves a lot of air.
There were 18 bolts for which no nuts were included and the bolts were stamped with two different tensile strengths: 8.8 and 4.8. There was no guidance provided on which to use where. Maybe it doesn't matter. (The 18 nuts were obtained at my local ACE Hardware and I have no idea what their tensile strength is.)
I also had to drill out the holes for the 18 bolts since they were too small to accept the bolts. These were not big problems but a reflection on quality control at the Chinese plants. An allen wrench was included for no apparent reason. However, the two metric wrenchs provided were helpful along with the socket wrenches I had that are my only metric tools. Overall I think this was a very good buy at the sale price of $253 with free shipping under the Amazon.com annual shipping plan.
Addressing some of the issues run into by other reviewers:
-- The package arrived in good condition, and all of the parts were present and intact. There's a lot packed into a small space, though, so I could see how bad handling by the shipper could result in damage.
-- There were enough nuts and bolts for the assembly, but the instructions were not always clear about which size bolts go where -- I had to back up and swap some around. I would strongly recommend going through the instructions and setting aside the nuts and bolts for each step before beginning.
-- Some folks have mentioned the challenge of getting the lower plastic bag clamped on to the collector. Four pieces of tape were sufficient to hold it in place while attaching the clamp.
-- I wanted to do most of the assembly in a comfortable location and then move the unit to the shop area; if you leave off attaching the bag stand to the platform until the very end, you end up with two nicely portable pieces that can be quickly assembled in the final location.
