Hello fellow Lumberjocks… I was recently given a dust collector similar to this one

I think it will meet my needs, but I'd like to vent it outside instead of through the upper bag. Has anyone done this successfully? I'm wondering if I will be destroying the dust collector or if it will still function at all without the back pressure from the upper bag. So far the only way I can think of doing this is to remove the upper bag and build some kind of reducer to get it down to a 4" pipe that I plan to put through the wall of my shop.

Any advice is welcome.
