If so, I used a adjustable 5” elbow I got from my hardware store used for exhaust pipe on gas fired equipment. I think I paid $5 for it. I needed it to be adjustable because I had part of the garage door hardware to contend with.
You ll have to tape all the seams when you install it because it leaks like a sieve. :)

I hope this is helpful.

Yup, exactly this! My install location is even the same, right by the garage door. I plan on trying to point the exhaust out the door or running it out with a 5” hose instead of using an expensive filter. I ll see if I can find a similar adapter at the orange box!

Good. Glad it was helpful. You might also check with Oneida.
They have a bunch of 5” fittings. I think I used 2 of those adjustable elbows to get the funky angles I needed. :)
I ran mine out a dryer vent to the outside of the garage. I don’t see any dust on the bushes so I think the SDD is doing a good job collecting it all.
I couldn’t find a 5” dryer vent so I got a 5” to 6” adapter and used 6” HVAC duct-work to a 6” dryer vent. I got it at Lowe’s.
I have a project listed on this site on how I did all of this if you need it.
Good luck. I hope it all goes well for you.
Please post your progress so we can check it out!
