Question Recommendations

Looking to purchase a dust collection system.
Must be large enough for table saw, miter saw, planer, floor sweep.

Did you say tool sale?

Well theres a subject thats flooded the air waves for a number of years. So I spent a lot of time on Bill Penz site and Oneida as well as dust collection forums and my observations and conclusions are as follows:
How much time do you spend in the shop, how much dust realistically are you wanting to remove, what is your Budget.
My first choice would be Bills Cyclone
2nd choice 3-5 hp Oneida
3rd choice build or purchase a 2hp Cyclone or at least a 1 micron bagger and change over to a cartridge as soon as possible.
I would use 6" piping to as close to the machine as I could get.

My own research on the web yielded the following;
1. Minimum horsepower for dust collector, 1 1/2 horses.
2. Cartridge filter that can remove 1 micron or smaller particles.
Bought a Jet dc1100, $300 on sale, and an aftermarket cartridge filter from Wynn Environmental for $91. plus shipping.
Take a look at Wynn's website.

I have been looking around, but want to make sure I get a good system without taking out a second mortgage.

The most common systems I have seen out there is a 2hp with Cartride. The guys seem to be happy with them and These systems work good espesially if you can group your high dust producers close by.
