If your hood/guard is being sucked down to the workpiece there is not any, or not enough, openings in the hood/guard to allow air flow. This is defeating the function of collecting the dust. Can you raise the hood/guard to allow air flow without compromising the guarding function?

Providing a wye with a secondary area hood behind or above the cutting position would be the best way to decrease the pressure on the hood/guard without loosing the dust collecting ability.
