Dust Collection

I have a 2hp dust collector that I am trying to utilize in a small garage shop. How far of a run can I have and still be efficient? I am thinking about setting it up on the other side(wife's side) of the garage. It would be about a 20 foot run of strait pipe. Any idea if that is too much. Would love some opinions here.

Hard to say without knowing what make/model dust collector you have as all 2HP dust collectors are not created equally and in any case this will help you calculate your needs...

And this will tell you the "real world" performance of your dust collector to see if it will actually meet your needs...
