All manufacturers publish ratings for individual dust collectors including:
Air velocity in feet per minute (fpm)
Air volume in cubic feet per minute (cfm)
Maximum static pressure (sp)
A portable dust collector is a good option if your priorities are affordability and simplicity. A portable dust collector is moved from machine to machine, keeping it in close proximity of the tool it's servicing and limiting the static pressure losses caused by long runs of ductwork.
The Wall Mount Dust Collector is an excellent choice for a small woodworking operation where an affordable solution is the goal. It mounts in seconds with simple brackets.
A large, powerful dust collector will move more air with more friction-overcoming force than a small, portable unit, and therefore can be used to service machinery that produces greater volumes of debris and have greater cfm requirements. If your shop is equipped with a number of large stationary power tools, consider stepping up to a dust collection unit rated in the 1100 - 1200 cfm range to handle chip removal for even the largest home shop tools.
