I've had this for a couple of years. The tube is so big and slippery that it's very difficult to attach/detach the brush and floor sweep. I ended up putting double stick tape around it so I could grip it. The brush broke and although I was able to glue it together, I never used the system again. The 4" hose is so heavy and cumbersome that it's not worth the trouble. It's much easier to just get a broom and dustpan

I think that the vacuum extension is a little silly for the cost, but I have to say I love the quick connect fittings, they are awesome. Sooo for what it's worth I highly recommend the the 4' dust right connect starter kit with the handle and two fittings. Then buy however many fittings in what ever sizes you need. If you really want a vacuum port then get the reducer and use your shop vac hose assuming you have one. Hope this helps.

I bought this system 6 months ago. So far the bench nozzle has broken twice and the handle has broken off the coupling giving me a nice cut to boot. This system is not worth the money it costs. I would not buy it again. First on the bench cleaner the brush fell out out. I used some heavy CA to put it back . A few days ago the bench cleaner split into 2 pieces on the seam. I had to use PVC glue to put it back together because I don't have time to mess with returning it since the new one would do the same thing.Editor's note: Our customer service at 800-376-7856 is available to assist with replacement.

I've had this system for about 4 months and use it a lot I also have a bench brush. The unit handle work good for maneuvering around with a 4 inch hose and the flexible hose is a lot more forgiving. I like the 4 inch because I'm picking up sawdust and chips and the large tube lowers the velocity but improves the volume. This leaves behind large chunks of wood and also screws etc. I gave it a 3 because the snap together handle popped apart a couple of times and I eventually used instant glue to hole them together. /p>
I have a central vac system...

I have a central vac system that's piped to all my machine so I use this with super flexible hose and works very good. It does a great job of allowing me to clean up the stray dust around the shop floor and the benches Unfortunately, the handle and the bench top brush separated at the manufacturing joints. The fabrication isn't tough enough for general use. Instead of contacting customer service to get new ones, I just popped the parts apart the rest of the way and added some instant glue to the joints and put them back together again. No failure since. The big complaint I had is with screws that come for the brackets. I drilled pilot holes and the screws still snapped in two half way in. Luckily they didn't snap at head when they were driven down tight so I was able to remove them with vice grips. After 3 broke, I disposed of the rest and used standard hardware store quality screws of the same type without any problems. Those who complain about the connection, please just create one adapter and attach it to your Dust Right and all you ports will work. You build jigs you can do that too.
