I got one of these Wen #3403 Dust Collectors as a Christmas gift and I'm wondering if hooking it up is a matter of installing a new breaker and running a 10/2 line to the garage. I have air conditioners and pool equipment, etc. already hooked up, but no other appliances except smaller 15 and 20A things.
It says in one place that it needs 110V an 25A breaker, and in another that it needs a 30A breaker. It seems to run at 12-16A, but I imagine needs some extra for starting up.
I've read that code requires it to be hard-wired with a switch. Is that true? What's the harm in using the plug for occasional use, etc. Also, since it's a garage, do I need a GFCI outlet?
