Looking at the top down, you have the incoming air being spun counterclockwise as it enters the cyclone then transitioned to clockwise by the blower. That will require a lot of work taking all that air mass and having to reverse the direction of rotation making the system less efficient than it could be.

That being said, I do like the clean, stacked look of the assembly.

Interesting. I could reverse the direction that the exhaust elbow points (just up there for mock up right now) so the it exits the machine to the left like it did in its original configuration. I was wondering what effect direct venting will have on the motor because it is not having to push the exhaust air through filters. Maybe a bit of back pressure might be a good thing? Your thought?
