My question is simmilar to Will this setup severely reduce the CFM from my dust collector?
I have 2" ducting for a shop vac and a small dust deputy. I want to upgrade to a dust collector and 4" piping, but since it is my hobby i have limited time so need to approach in stages. I was thinking of mounting the collector first and hooking it up to existing 2" piping and then slowly replace piping with larger diameter.
I know all the differences between HVLP and LVHP, my question is more along the of am i risking damage to the collector motor itself?
