    I have a Penn State Industries 1 1/2 HP model for my 25 Watt laser.
    Had it a couple years with no problems

    Laser manufacturer will have suggestion for blower minimum CFM and piping.
    For that wattage you should go with 650 CFM minimum.
    Google Harbor Freight and check under dust collectors.
    Mount your blower at the end of piping so it sucks away dust rather then pushes if mounted near the laser. This way noise level will be reduced as well.

    I think all the low end ones are made by the same people, just branded for each company. We have the Penn State as well.

    I think it's this one :

    They are fairly reasonable.

    If you haven't gotten your laser yet, we just got a Universal V-460 we will have for sale soon. Let me know if your interested, the machine does have some run-time but is in good condition.

    I just purchased the same Penn State Industries 1 1/2 hp exhaust blower. Do you have yours plugged into a regular 110v / 15a receptacle???
