The 2-1/2'' diameter hose in this kit is made of an amazingly elastic, flexible polymer that stretches from approximately 2' to 12' in length. This allows you to reach most areas of your shop, without the hassle of a long, cumbersome hose. As you move closer to your shop vacuum, it retracts to take up excess slack, which helps prevent tangling and tripping. Thanks to the flexibility of the hose, coupled with the included swivel connectors, it won't kink or bind. The hose weighs 30% less than previous versions, and is offered in a blue translucent color. With the two included swivel fittings, it easily connects to your shop vacuum, optional Dust Right® accessories and many dust ports. Each swivel fitting has a larger end (2-1/2'' OD), which fits into the hose, and a smaller end (2-1/4'' OD), which fits into a standard ''Shop Vac.'' Two metal hose clamps are also included for securing the fittings to the hose.


Cold Weather Tip: Cold temperatures will cause the hose to contract. If you find the hose is too tight or stiff, try warming the hose/workshop.

(1) Dust Right® 2-1/2'' Dia. Expandable Hose (expands from 2' to 12')
(2) 2-1/2'' Hose Clamps
(2) Swivel fittings

Dust Right Vacuum Hose
I was able to use part of it to finish my router table vacuum system and the rest to extend the vacuum hose on my dust collection system. So far, very pleased with the results.

Divide and Collect
I got 4 more swivel ends and divided the hose into three parts. With the 2 1/2 " tee I can connect the radial arm saw collector hood and blade guard (smaller hose) to a dust collector and then to a shop vac.

Same deal with a router fence port and a collector box to the tee.

The flexible/ expandable hose sections are much easier to use than the OEM (Craftsman) bendable but fixed lenght hose.

Rockler Store
Wanted an additional hose of this flexible and expandable capability. Have a larger size and it is nice to have the length and be able to compress it back to the shorter size for storage.
Daniel M on May 28, 2020
I’ve just started purchasing woodworking tools, so I’ve been YouTubing a lot lately on what brands/tools to buy. When it came to purchasing a hose to connect my tools to my dust collector, this fits the size and length I need...and it is blue.

hose bought with separator way too short. impractical. forced to buy longer hose.
Robert O on Mar 26, 2020
after much experimentation I bought a large shop vacuum. The four inch hose is cumbersome for use other than certain machines. It is a pain bringing the portable shop vacuum from where I am using it to clean up in my shop. This provides a simpler and more convenient answer.

I feel I can always trust Rockler and their recommended products. Wanted a longer shop vac hose, lighter weight and the benefit of being collapsible from 12' down to 2' is a big plus.

Will this fit a Craftsman 16 Gallon shop vac? My hose measures 2 1/4"
Chuck on Jan 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It fits my Craftsman shop vac, which is only a 6 gallon. I imagine you'd be OK.
With the coil running through the hose, is the hose grounded or do I need to ground it myself??
kiarev on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The coil is not grounded. I don't think it needs to be. The outside of the hose is rubbery and besides, I'm pretty sure that grounding your vac hose stuff is an urban myth. :)
How does the suction from this hose compare to a relatively fixed length hose? How much difference is suction between 2' and 12' ?
Curious on Feb 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Suction is very strong at all lengths of the hose. It was so strong when I laid it flat against a surface that my shop vac was pulled across the floor toward me.
Can I couple two of these together to make a 24' hose? I am just using it for floor cleaning.
Boomer#1 on Aug 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have coupled 2 together and use the combination all the time for floor cleaning, jointer, bandsaw and, with a reducer, and Rocklers smaller flex hose and adapters use it for some of my hand tools such as a router.
Is there a reducer to make it fit a small 4 gallon Ridgid vacuum? It would have to go from 2.5" to 2.0".
Derek K on Aug 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I didn't come with a reducer. I'm sure you would have to buy that separate.
I would like to use this with my Jet DC-1100 dust collector to connect to some of my stationary power tools that come with a 2 1/4" dust port. I've done this in the past with one of those rigid black plastic hoses that come standard with a shop vac. My question is will I have any problems with this hose collapsing while under suction?
David Z on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The hose will not collapse as it has a metal wound ‘spring’ as the backbone. It may however, shorten with sufficient suction.
Is a two and a half hose on shop vac good enough for a dust collection set up?
spankey on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For most home shops, it would be fine if you are taking the hose from machine to machine. If you intend on a central dust setup, I would recommend the central hose a 4 inch connecting the 2 inch with the apprpriate central dust collector
Can I connect this hose to my stationary 4" dust collection system with a reducer? I just want to use it for floor cleaning but not using my shop vac.
Boomer#1 on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I'd suggest using a Dust Deputy with a 5 gallon bucket too.
What is the ID of each end of the coupler?
lain e on Mar 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: ID is 1 3/8 inch and od is 1 3/4 inch.. I put 2 lengths together with a 2 1/2 coupler and I have the rockler kit of assorted size connectors that covers about 7 different sanders, joiner, band saw and anything and with 2 inch painters tape hold the joints together under duress.. am very happy of all as have 4 shop vac. should spend 1000 buck and get a central unit. I am in the shop 3-5 hrs. a day..
What is inside diameter?
Franco C. on Feb 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The inside diameter is 2 1/4 inches Enter an answer to this question.
I just installed a bunch of this in my shop. The hose has a strong chemical odor. Is this stuff releasing toxic gases like the old vinyl shower curtains?
Craig G on Nov 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I only noticed a slight new plastic smell when I open the box it seem to go away within a couple days Enter an answer to this question.
Anyone see a reason I cannot cut this hose in half as I need two shorter runs?
Kevin O on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These can be cut as needed to fit your needs, I have cut several pieces to set up my dust collector
What is inside diameter?
Franco C. on Feb 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 54mm
With what hoses is this compatible? In particular is it compatible with items #22784, #58342, #58350, & #56647?

BEST ANSWER: Should work fine. I’ve use it on rockler 2 1/2” expandable hose. No reason why it wouldn’t work on the hoses you cited.
Does this 2.5in expandable hose come in a 3' length that expands more than 12'? Like the 4" hose does
Cragg on Nov 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Look up item 58342. Might be what you’re looking for.
what are the ID and OD of each end of the hose? I want to fit it to one of my 4" ID collector pipes that my machines use.
Nicholas T on Oct 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Both ends fit a standard 4 inch x 2 -1/2 inch reducing adapter. This will work with both flexible hose or dwv pvc pipe.
Is the hose antistatic?
Dominick N on May 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: not entirely, but in my experience static attraction of sawdust or retention of sawdust on outside is not significant. I've been using it for something like a year and have no complaints about static electricity.
Does Rockler sell tools to attach to this hose? I want to connect to dust collector pipe in ceiling and use for shop clean-up. I need a couple of extensions, a handle and vacuum attachments like Heavy-Duty Shop Vacuum Accessory Kit Item #: 52125 for the 1 1/2 inch hose.
MWDIlday on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The included swivel ends of this hose attach to standard shop vacuum ports and tools. It can be used as a replacement for the stock vacuum hose so it should connect easily to other vacuum accessories of the appropriate size. I use mine with the Rockler vacuum handle which itself also connects to my vacuum accessories (brush head and floor head extensions, etc.).
The hose itself will fit onto many of Rockler's other products. I've connected it to the vacuum port and their hose splicer (see related products).

I have 3 drops from my DC that end in 2". Can this hose be cut and add the swivel fittings to reach the two machines that each drop is designed for?
Richard A on Mar 26, 2019
What adapters are helpful with this hose? I purchased it and it connects to my Dust deputy, but it will not connect to any 2.5 inch shop vac accessories (hoses, wands, etc).
