Bought this a couple of weeks ago. The box arrived, from UPS, severely damaged. I am less than happy with UPS (that is a different review), however Brian, the driver was excellent.
Opened the box while the driver was present, it appeared that the damage was confined the the portion of the carton where the flex hose was packed.
Unfortunately it turned out that the base was bent as well as the two ring supports. The supports were bent such that if i had straightened them they would have broken.
I will just say that working with Grizzly was a breeze, they were terrific, will buy from them again.
The 1028Z2 assembled easily, the Grizzly manual far exceeds Jessem, Jet, or HF for clarity. I would change the order of some assembly steps, but that is a nit.
The unit immediately popped my 15 amp breaker, but ran well on a 20 amp breaker. No problem with this.
This is my first experience with a DC, so i have no reference to compare this unit to. However, using a clear 10' flex hose connected the 4" port on my band saw picked up virtually all the dust. Same, using a 2-1/2 10' flex hose can be said of my 2-1/2" equipment, table saw and router table had virtually no dust.
I gave this 4 stars, instead of 5 because i don't know how it compares to other units and i have not owned it long enough to determine reliability.
I do wish i would have purchased this unit years ago.
