When you're busy making things, mundane tasks such as cleaning your dust collector, go on the bottom of the back burner's back burner list... When you finally make time, you're greeting with this type of a mountain. 

Let me give you some perspective: a dust collector is traditionall made of two parts: the bottom bag where the chips get collected, and a top part which is the filter. Both parts are about the same length so not only did I overlow the bottom bag, I've started taking space from the filter range.

I'm quite surprised the dust colllector was even able to suck anything given how much debris was in it. It required my shop vac to suck out anything from the top section so that I can remove the bag without having anything spill over. The filter also needed some cleaning as everything was collecting in there including a plastic bag.

All in all, right now, the collector is working at better efficiency than before.
