Description

This brilliant hose extends up to 7x its original length for far-reaching cleanup, then compresses back down for easy storage! It slinks with ease around shop stands, power tools, and more — and always supplies the right amount of slack. Attach it to your Dust Right® system and dust collector for a premium shop-cleaning setup that won’t eat up floor-space! 4" in diameter. Three lengths available.

A bit pricey, but very handy

Review Summary

I use this to connect my DC to several tools. Because the hose is so flexible, it's easy to move around to different tools, and when I turn on the DC, it shrinks back on itself. I also use some of Rockler's accessories (reviewed elsewhere) that fit this hose to clean up the shop. The hose stretches enough that i can reach most every corner without any trouble.
And when I'm done, I just walk up next to the DC port where the hose is connected, put the end of the hose against my apron to block it off, and the hose contracts right down for storage. It's kind of fun to see!

Don't like !

Review Summary

I have a dedicated 600 sq ft wood shop with a central dust collection system that I can hitch this hose up to for vacuuming the floor, but I've found this hose to be much too cumbersome to use since it's very limp and heavy. Because of this, it's difficult to maneuver around so I end up not using it.
And yes like other reviews, it's a bit pricey like most of the Rockler innovations, but it your smart like me you never buy anything from them unless it's on sale or you have a coupon. Wouldn't buy again!
