The dustopper will get most of the bulky stuff, but almost none of the fines. Yes, the extra filtration here will be helpful, since it's a two-stage HEPA design. The bag will load itself up with fines, and the pleated canister filter is the last line of defense.

Doing woodworking, you'll empty the dustopper bucket about 10-100x for each time you replace the bag, and you'll replace the bag about 20x before you need to replace the pleated.

Handy hint: The way this kit is sold, the vac still comes with the cheap white paper pleated filter, and then the HEPA bags and pleated filter are in a separate package. So you end up with another filter you don't need. I turned mine into an exhaust diffuser: https://i.imgur.com/JPBIHID.png

Without some sort of diffuser, the exhaust stream is such a powerful jet, it'll tend to stir up dust in places you haven't vacuumed yet. The "muffler/diffuser" thing they sell is crap; it restricts the airflow and muffles very little. This cost me like $3 for the PVC parts and a few minutes with a heatgun to soften them so they'd stretch into place, and it reuses something that was otherwise gonna be junk. The resulting exhaust is so gloriously isotropic you barely feel it, and it doesn't stir up anything. And the paper filter is basically transparent to airflow; it doesn't noticeable inhibit suction.
Why is it always the enormous ones that are on sale?
Gotta love these ratings...5.0 hp on a 120/1/60 15a circuit.

(And yes I know this is how shop vacs are rated. Just think it's kind of silly)

I'm just starting my wood shop. Would this be a good shop vacuum? (I'm thinking I should start smaller)

Get this and a dustopper or a cyclone. DusTopper is cheaper but cyclone works a little bit better. The large 2 1/2" hose is very helpful

Whatever vac you get , I recommend the 2.5" hose. It's large enough that most things can easily be vacuumed up.

Get this and a long hose (Home Depot has a 20' hose for $20 bucks every few months.). Leave this vac in the corner and you are set.

If you would have dust separator like dust deputy, small one may be fine and recommended. Just note that this is very loud and it won't work well with jointer or planer. They generate more chips than these shopvac can handle.
Then you need stationary dust collector.

Woodshops will typically have a stationary vacuum so an extended hose will benefit you created. There's a 20ft one that goes on sale every now and then.

A dust separator helps but you still need to empty it. I find it more convenient throwing out a 5 gallon bucket than it is having to open the top and hauling the vac out of it's corner to a trash can.

Depends on the setup you want. If you plan to have machines and stations then you'll probably prefer a dust collection setup than a shop vac.

Found the electrician. Yeah 15 amp breakers are basically 2.4hp with the watts. The vacuum guys do some weird math and also at "peak" to the rating.
