I have a 4” exhaust on the trash can. Does that seem more plausible?

As for letting everything vent outside, it’s my side yard and I have a car there along with my hvac unit so I want to keep my hvac going and car cleanish : )

One thing I wonder, I have the dust collector at 8” and it’s pushing air into the garbage can at 5” and the outlet is 4” am I somehow restricting something? I feel if anything I should add another exhaust as I blocked off the 5” exhaust on the other side of the DC to push it to just one side.


I don t doubt your measurements, but I am trying to understand how you are getting 800 cfm or 1000 cfm exhausting into a 32 gallon trashcan without it blowing the lid off. Some quick back of the envelope math says that at 800 cfm, you should be replacing the volume of that can 3 times every second.

If you are exhausting it outside, who worry about the can at all? Just let the chips fall where they may
