Do you have a cyclone dust separator in your extraction system - if yes, does the standard cloth filter bag still ‘cake-up’ with a layer of fine dust?

Eventually the vac filters will need cleaning , mine get done every couple of months compared to every week pre cyclone.

Not to the same extent, no. I've used mine for a while now and with wood dust the cyclone separates practically everything so there's very little gets through to the bag.
