I’ve been considering the same thing. I was going to vent under the wing shed but considered the dust layer. I was going to use a baffled box to slow the air and let dust settle before exiting. I know it wouldn’t catch it all but it’s mostly garden stuff and stored lumber anyway. Was talking to the wife while reading this, she suggested just letting it vent between the barns and letting it settle in the yard that may become horse lot anyway. I don’t have immediate neighbors to worry about, yea!!!!!!!!!
Another advantage I’ve been told, is when the bags and exhaust resistance is removed, the static pressure goes way up and dramatically increase collection ability.
There’s my rambling and two cents. I’m going to give it a try. BTKS
