The POWERMATIC PM1300 is designed to bring substantial dust-evacuating suction with effective filtering to your shop and to pack those capabilities into a durable, space-saving package that accommodates virtually any shop size and needs. The POWERMATIC PM1300 is shipped as a bare machine without a filter element or catch bags allowing the buyer to “design” the system they want. The fabric filter and catch bag set as well as the pleated canister filter with 5 plastic catch bags are sold as individual kits. This allows the purchaser to save money by getting the POWERMATIC PM1300 with the filter style wanted without paying for and then discarding an unused “standard” filter and bag set.
Filtering Efficiency The bag filter element is 20” in diameter and 48” in length. An upright hook is included to support the bag when the POWERMATIC PM1300 is not running. A spring steel band clamp secures the filter bag to the collector housing. The fabric collector bag has a spring retaining ring sewn into its upper edge that fits into a groove in the collector housing making its installation and removal tool free. Many manufacturers use an outside band for securing the collection bag that can be very difficult to work with, especially when done alone.
