If you don't mind me asking, what is the price for just the 5 hp blower only?

I don't remember exactly, about a grand, a little less.
Here is the unit, being advertised by Woodmaster. 

https://woodmastertools.com/NS/accessdetail.cfm?PID=88

I bought the bare bones blower, a metal stand and the remote switch which is attached to a user defined length of wire.  So I put the blower outside, up high, under the eave of the building and built a manifold of Lowes metal ductwork that serves my inside tools as well as the sawmill outside. 
I can run either the planer or straight line rip saw inside (both big chips hogs) at the same time as the mill outside, so it has decent capacity.  Or I would normally run the 12" jointer, the planer and chop saw at the same time.
With it being outside, the noise isn't bad.  Also a picture of the portable dust collection bin, or dump truck.   :D The canvas sleeve helps take some of the velocity off the chips so they will pile up better.  Otherwise they shoot out like a snowblower everywhere.

Yellowhammer I like your shop, I am soooo ready to get mine closed in. I really like that Woodmaster is made in the USA. So the bare bones blower you got is just the blower only?

It's an assembly of the blower, motor and a metal mounting bracket as well as a magnetic starter box that is independently mounted where convenient for you.  Here are some pics of my 3hp blower.  If I recall, this was $675 from Woodmaster.







Cast aluminum impeller and housing, 6 in intake and outtake.  If you need to mount the starter box farther away from the blower, just use some longer wire with in reason.

I have started a thread on my build, but I haven't been working on it lately.  Here is the thread: http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,96516.msg1489427.html#msg1489427
