New DELTA® 1 ½ HP Dust Collector Enhances Dust Management Portfolio With First Class Performance and Durability

JACKSON, Tenn. (June 16, 2010) – Woodworkers looking for premium performance and durable design in dust collection will look no further with the new 1 ½ HP Dust Collector added to DELTA’s line of premium dust management products. The new dust collector (model 50-786) delivers power and filtration superior to previous dust collection offerings in a durable sheet metal frame design for added stability and maneuverability.

“While most dust collectors on the market today include only a few features critical to quality performance, the new DELTA 1 ½ HP Dust Collector delivers a complete package designed and manufactured to run for the long haul,” said Bill Harman, product manager for DELTA Machinery. “Although dust collectors are typically considered a passive tool in the shop, DELTA understands the ever important need for a long-lasting machine that maintains a clean environment and can be easily maneuvered throughout the woodshop.”

With a maximum air velocity of 1,200 cubic feet per minute (CFM), the 50-786 Dust Collector boasts best-in-class performance that minimizes the detrimental effects of air-borne contaminants that woodworking naturally produces. A new one-micron filter bag complements the machine’s power with 97 percent filtration and containment of fine dust particles, maximizing airflow for a clean shop setting.

The dust collector comes with two disposable bags, specially designed for convenient “fill and toss” waste disposal. Unlike solid cloth bags, the clear bag allows users to easily monitor dust levels. A canister option is also available and adds five times the filter area compared to disposable and cloth bags.

For added convenience, mobility and performance, the 50-786 features a much sturdier sheet metal frame design compared to laundry cart designs. Plus, swivel casters and a convenient pull handle allows for easier maneuverability between stations or for storing out of the way. 

Created for intermediate and professional woodworkers wanting to upgrade to a powerful, durable and efficient dust collector, the 50-786 is backed by a five-year warranty and will be available in August 2010 at specialty woodworking dealers for a suggested retail price of $429.
