My dog box has an exhaust mounted on top like most others. There are holes cut in the top of the box and then there is a screen below the fan blades and motor. Hair gets sucked up and clogs the screen. the only was to clean it is to lay on your back, stick a screwdriver thru the holes and scrape the hair off the screen. Then when the hair falls down, vaccume it thru the holes. About a 30 min process.

Any ideas about how to solve this?

I was thinking of making a 15 bu 15 inch screen and screwing it to the top of the box. Then I would just have to vaccume that screen.

use a filter. like a house vent tape it on. pull hair off every so often?!.

Get a poodle. They don't shed (as much) :p

I agree with tomhunter....the solution involves putting some type of disposable filter on it.

Might even be able to screw a cheap, house-type filter between the fan and the box (or do the manly thing and use duct tape :).
