dust collector “bag or canister filter”
I am looking for a dust collector, I have a lead on a used but new condition 2hp regular type with a filter bag for 225$. I could buy a new canister filter for 285$ which would bring me to to 500$ + tx on the filter. Do we really need the canister typer versus the filter bag. Normally both are rated to 1 micron.
Will I be putting my health at risk with the filter bag or it is the new trend on dust collector pushing people to buy the canister type. Could I find a retrofit filter online to ship in Canada for a few hundred $ later.
You input would be great.
