I bought this unit because it resembled my Delta dust collector that recently died. I am satisficed with the performance, it does the job it was designed to do.

Great purchase and a much cleaner work area. 09/16/2020 10:32:47 AM

Love to wood work but dislike the mess. Now the mess is cut by 85-95%.

Very Pleased 06/30/2020 12:36:59 PM

I bought this about a month ago, and have been very pleased with my purchase. I've used it on a table saw and drum sander, and it does an excellent job. In my small shop, I've got to move it around so the wheeled base is very helpful. Easy to assemble, and does an excellent job. For the money, I'd absolutely recommend it.

Great Dust Collector 06/25/2020 1:40:06 PM

This is the first dust collector that I have ever purchased. I did a lot of research and found this collector that has plenty of power and was at a great price. My shop stays a lot cleaner now.

Works well as expected. 06/21/2020 4:47:29 PM

overall 4.9 stars don't care for the plastic lower bag
will order another upper bag and put it on the bottom
that will make it 5 stares.

Only dust collector I have ever owned 04/29/2020 7:12:33 PM

This is the first dust collector I have ever owned. The techs at Grizzly talked me through the comparability of the planer with the dust collector. You can connect more than one piece of equipment to it.

I bought this dust collector to replace my G1029 2hp 240 volt dust collector which I bought back in 1991. This new one seems to pull just as much air as my old one did. The footprint is exactly the same as the old one so it fit right into the closet I built for soundproofing. I bought the remote on-off which works real good. The discharge bag is still a pain in the ass to remove and replace but it's never a perfect world.

This is the cat's meow. It has a 8" impeller with ~ 1' vanes connected to a 1 1/2 HP motor. I sucks up everything. The out put blows out the dust for 20 feet! The suction port has a 4" Y connector one of which I connected to my grizzly cabinet saw with a 4" flexible tube (not included). The other end of the Y, I reduced down to 2 1/2" and connected it to a 2 1/2" flexible hose (also not included) that I use overhead of the cabinet saw and also for vacuuming up the rest of the work shop. I am extremely pleased with the suction of the 2 1/2" hose even without a gate on the 4" port.
A great investment for maintaining a clean and healthy work environment.

Mean Green Machine! 12/31/2019 6:02:21 AM

I've had the Grizzly G1028Z2 for 2 weeks now and very happy with my purchase so far. It has tons of power, maybe it's closer to 2 HP -- especially when compared to the Harbor Freight 2 HP model, and with a ducted system, like mine, this has enough power to be able handle multiple tools.

All of the parts are very high quality, especially the impeller. I wrote another review of this product on Amazon, where I went into detail about my less than stellar experience with the Harbor Freight 2 HP model. You can probably find it if you're interested, so I'm omitting that part of the review here.

One plus is that Grizzly includes an entire system design section in the back of the manual, with ducting material choices, port sizes and tons of charts to tailor the system for specific tools. You can tell these guys actually care about doing it right.

Here are my likes:

1. 2.5 micron bag -- very good filtration
2. Solid metal construction
3. Easy assembly -- under 30 min.
5. The air actually smells cleaner in my shop -- is that possible?
6. Home Depot store pickup was a great way to go


1. It's very tall, and can easily dominate a small space
2. The switch is not in the most convenient location
3. It's pretty loud, but low pitched so it's fine with earplugs

I highly recommend getting one of those remote control outlets so it's easier to power it on and off when needed.

its awesome for the size 12/11/2019 12:34:25 PM

I bought this about 3 weeks ago and it does an amazing job with the planer, the only thing that is a problem is when your trying to install hose on it, it keeps moving around , I would recommend grizzly to put on a cpl locking wheels

Works well! 08/08/2019 3:05:56 PM

I used it with a dust cyclone and almost no saw dust or chips make it to the filter, which is what I wanted. It's not too loud. After using it with a planer for a few hours, the table the planer is sitting on as well as the entire planer is fairly clean. I wanted to mount duct work around the garage, but decided to use flex tubing with hooks and straps holding it place, and it all works well. Enough CFM and static pressure for everything I have.

I bought this dust collector for a double miter saw for a custom picture framing business. I called to make sure I was getting the right strength for my needs, customer service was excellent about answering all my questions! I have been more than happy with the performance of the Grizzly. Delivery was excellent and set up was easy, although it did take longer than suggested. I looked at this on Amazon but decided to buy direct from Grizzly because of the reviews about the delivery from Amazon and the fact that if damaged in transit it would not be covered. In the end it was a few dollars cheaper to buy direct and I was confident that IF I did have an issue Grizzly would make it right.

Best in the Business 04/16/2019 2:47:56 PM

I have had this dust collector for over two years. It works well for my whole shop which includes a 20" planer, 24" drum sander, 8" jointer, 3 and 5 hp shapers, table saw, and radial arm saw. Simply shake the bag vigorously to get the dust off. Simple but very effective. Plenty of cfm fills bags quickly. Never use it on anything but a machine. Never tempted to use it to clean the floor. I opted to use the 4" flexible dust-right hose and connectors so no "collection system". Just plug those hoses into the right machine, hit the remote on switch and go. Great product. I don't think anyone can beat it.

I researched several different brands and this one had the best features for the price. Easy to assemble and runs great!! Not as loud as I anticipated. Simple shooters muffs reduce noise while working in the shop. Highly recommend this unit!

Great Dust Collector. 03/13/2019 11:52:59 AM

The Grizzly G1028Z2 dust collection system has made a huge improvement in conditions in my shop. I had only a ceiling mounted dust collector with a 400 CFM flow rate. After every turning, and sanding session, cleanup would include extensive vacuuming with my shop vac to clean dust from my lathe and other surfaces. With my Grizzly in place, my cleanup is pretty much restricted to the floor so shop surfaces are remaining clean. Great investment!

Works great 01/17/2019 6:34:48 PM

Bought to pair with new 17" Grizzly band saw and all is working well after considerable effort to get dust collection hookup completed to saw..
Connecting the dust hoses in a cold garage is a major pain, and finally I used a small heater to loosen up the connecting ends to get it all together. Why Grizzly does not make plastic connector pieces to go on the Grizzly saw that would connect to 4" screw in connectors on hose is ridiculous. The job could have been so much easier and faster had such connectors to the saw been available.
It all just took far longer than it should have, and required buying additional fittings from Grizzly, and two trips to local Rockler to get it all to fit.
Look forward to using both saw and dust collector now the hookup is completed.
People that design these systems should be required to put one together so see what it is like. I suspect some design changes would be made..

Quiet and Powerful 08/04/2018 10:13:14 AM

Easy to assemble, surprisingly quiet and powerful. Most difficult part was running grounding wire thru the 4" hoses to my tablesaw/router combo and jointer. A blast gate is required if you have more than one piece of equipment. I recommend a cyclone dust separator between DC and equipment. This keeps DC collection bag virtually empty.

I've had mine for over 3 years now and it's amazing. It's connected to my Table saw, Planer, Jointer, Shaper and Bandsaw. It makes clean up easier and keeps the dust level down. The only change I may have made is to upgrade to the 2 HP unit.

Satisfied 07/05/2017 3:06:29 AM

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.

Great choice for my shop. 06/03/2017 1:01:24 AM

I bought this dust collector when I purchased a G1023RL table saw in December of 2016. I converted the motor to 240V using the diagrams in the instruction manual. I built a collection system serving eight stations for various machines and am very pleased as it has all but eliminated dust in the shop. Great product.

Like the product. Be aware that there are extra charges regarding the product requiring a lift gate truck that you're not made aware of until you check out. As such the shipping is more than you think. I did not purchase this because I could get it off the semi truck myself but be aware.

Finally getting rid of the chips! 01/26/2017 12:33:44 AM

This is about the best DC you'll find for the money. It has great power, and the fact that it runs on 120 volts is good for a shop like mine that doesn't have enough 220 volt access. I've hooked it up to my spiral cutterhead jointer to face joint wide poplar boards and had almost no chips left at the cutterhead (this with it pulling through a shopmade separator that is somewhat less than efficient). I would buy it again!

G1028Z2 Dust Collector Review 01/22/2017 4:22:49 PM

I am really glad I purchased this model, it is just the right size for my shop. Cleanup after a project is now minimal. It has the right footprint, power requirements and most important great suctioning power. It was also in a good price range. Instructions to assemble the unit were clear and easy to understand.

dust collector, top of the line 05/16/2016 8:07:05 PM

I also have a bigger one for table saw and jointer, but this works perfectly with my new drum sander that is in another room. Can't say anything negative, but wish I could find a 6" elbow

Customer Review 01/01/2015 5:31:27 PM

My G1028Z2 arrived Tuesday as promised. The crate was in good condition and the driver helped me unload the unit. All the parts were included and it assembled just as described in the instructions. The instructions are well written and illustrated. I am impressed by the finish and fit of the parts. Everything looks right for the job.

When I started the dust collector, I was glad I had not ordered the larger (2 hp.) unit. This one (1 1/2 hp.) has plenty of power and will do everything I need in my small shop. I connected my band saw and was very pleasantly surprised to find NO dust inside the saw after about a half-hour of use.

The G1028Z2 dust collector is a quality product that will improve the performance of my shop.

Thank you for your attention.
