Overall very happy
Came packed very well and came undamaged. Very easy to hang. I used plastic chain at Lowes and that seems to be plenty strong enough and didn't require a bunch of work to get it up. It's a little louder than I thought it would be but even on it's lowest setting it really pushes a lot of air volume. Filters are super easy to remove to change. I haven't checked on how expensive the inner filter is but it looks very nice. Remote seems to pick up from anywhere in the shop so it doesn't have a line of sight requirement like my cyclone does. Time will tell if it helps with the settling dust in the shop overall but it sure lives up to my expectation so far.

Great air filtration!
The filters work well are easy to clean or change and the radio signal remote is awesome since you can use it from anywhere in the shop without a line of sight to the machine

I bought this unit Feb 2010...
I bought this unit Feb 2010 it is a awesome unit. The unit is quiet and the remote can be used from anywhere through walls etc. where a lot of the otherunits that need a clear line of site for the remote to work right.I also like the timer feature so at the end of the day i can leave the shop and set the automatic timer feature for a hour or two to clean the air and it will shut itself off.

Front tabs broke off already. Initially received the product without the diffusion filter. After contacting your customer service it was received two weeks later.

Not the best in Quality Control or packaging!
This review is for the 2nd unit I received as a replacement to the 1st unit that was damaged in shipping. This unit weighs nearly 77 lbs so it is a chore for one person to carry unless you have a dolly. Powermatic should take into consideration the weight of this air unit when it comes to delivery method and packing. The unit will come UPS ground, meaning that through most of the transport, the unit will be handled by one person. Especially when it comes to the actual delivery. This puts due stress to the packaging which can cause damage to the product. The cardboard box it came in was nearly falling apart on my front porch upon delivery. All the tape let go and the only thing holding it together was the fiber strapping. I can tell that it was handled by these straps most of it's journey. With all the damage to the box, I was sure that I was going to see another damaged Powermatic air unit. Fortunately, by some miracle, there was none this time. However the Styrofoam and thin wood veneer sheets used to protect it were pretty well shot. There was a lone screw and washer floating around which I discovered to be one of 8 holding the blower in. I easily put that back in place. This time there were no dents. The skimpy chrome molding straps fell off the sides and were laying in the box. My first unit, for some reason, was missing the remote and mounting hardware. This one was had everything included. The remote and hardware were intact inside the unit. Now for the actual operation of the unit. The air filtration works great! I didn't find this to be loud at all. I use this in a 20'X 17'area of my basement. The blower motor on top of my water heater that pumps out carbon monoxide is much louder than this air filtration unit. Even when it is set to high speed. I have noticed a considerable difference in the amount of dust left behind after I'm done working in my shop. The timer and remote work as advertised. Overall, I am happy with the product. I went through a lot of hassle to get it with the prior damage of Unit #1 and getting a replacement. If Powermatic would get their packing department together and put more care into delivery methods, this would rate a 5 star. But with that in mind I can only give it a 3 star rating. I would recommend this to a friend with the stipulation of mentioning he/she would be taking a gamble of receiving the unit damaged.

I have heard the machine is much easier to change the filter on and is quieter than the Jet. Time will tell but I only want to do this once and trust the Powermatic name.

What is the cubic feet of workshop this is rated for?
Barbara T on Dec 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My wood shop is 8650 cubic feet and my Powermatic Air Filtration works very good in it. I have had it a little over one year and am very pleased with how it helps control the fine dust in the air.
do they make a unit that runs on 220 V?
Pinchos H on Jul 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This particular unit is 120v only - not dual wired for optional 240v. I recommend you contact Powermatic to see if they make a 240v model. I assume you are in North America using 120/240v 60hz power.
