I was thinking you could make a removable bottom, but you still need the sleeve and you still have to get the sleeve out of the bag.

I have the same problem with my Laguna CFlux. When I need to empty it, I put on a dust mask, take it out to the dust pile, flip it over, bang on the sides a couple times, lift the barrel up to get the majority of the dust out, back up, wait for the dust to settle, then bang on the sides again to get the rest off. Still have to clean off a bit.

In addition to the mess, my trek is up a hill and the dust bucket weighs 35+ lbs, so I really don’t like to empty it. I use a secondary can collector with the planer and joiner because it’s less hassle to empty.

Emptying the Shop Vac isn’t much better and you have to clean out the filter.

I hate to say it, but it seems like the mess and fine dust is just something you have to live with as long as you make dust and collect it.
