Dust Right® Shop Vacuum Hose Reel

74% of 100

Paired with a hose of sufficient length, our Shop Vacuum Hose Reel brings the benefit of a central vacuum cleaner to your shop. Rather than dragging along a clunky shop vacuum that's constantly tipping or getting caught on obstacles, you simply leave the vacuum against the wall and reel out up to 40' of hose, enough to easily span a 2-car garage. As opposed to a vacuum, hoses easily snake around corners and through narrow spaces. They are lightweight and comfortable to handle. Using a stationary vac with a long hose also lets you integrate a dust separator into your system without having to pull the additional bulk around. When you're finished cleaning, just reel up the hose with the integral crank.


Features:

  • Holds up to 40' of 1-1/2'' shop vacuum hose
  • Designed for standard 1-1/2'' hose, which accepts commonly available accessories
  • Tension knob is adjustable to keep the hose from uncoiling too easily
  • Sturdy steel frame is pre-drilled 16'' on center for mounting to two studs
  • May be installed with the crank oriented for either left- or right-handed users
  • Maximize performance with a dust separator without having to pull around the additional weight
  • Due to the length of the hose that this reel is designed for, your shop vacuum should have at least 4HP
  • The Shop Vacuum 1-1/2” hose will need a fitting on one end that is 2-1/4” OD.
  • Hose Port on the inside of the Hose Reel has a 2-1/4” ID.
  • The Hose Port on the outside of the Hose Reel has an OD of 2 1⁄2" and an ID of 2 1⁄4".

Great!
Really happy with it. There is some suction loss on the spinning valve and not sure how to stop it, but other than that, it's going to be a great addition to the shop.

Well built, great way to get the vacuum and twenty feet of hose tucked away in an out of the way location but still reach all areas where you need it

Michael H on May 15, 2018
Is the unit designed for 1.5 inch hose only or is it possible to connect a 2.5 inch hose to it?
Bruce J on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With the right adapter, any size will work, however the blue 1.5" hose they recommend probably gives you the optimum range and flexibility. Most 2.5" hoses I'm familiar with are a little stiff- hard to crank on reel and go around corners.
Where can you find 40 feet of hose in one piece for sale???
Woodworkjohn on Dec 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is available at http://www.rockler.com/dust-right-heavy-duty-shop-vacuum-hose-kits
I just bought a 20 ft 2.5 hose. If it holds 40 feet of 1.25 would it hold 20 feet of 2.5??
Denise K on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The hose sold intended for the reel comes with the shop vac connector. If you have a shop vac connector for that hose, I don't see why not. However, the opening in the reel connection point (to the hose) is the size of a 1-1/2" hose; I don't know if you want to reduce the air flow from a 2.5" hose. However, it is a shop vac connection point, so it would fit; but you might need a larger hose clip.
What size is the port on the dust collector side? Can I use my regular 4" dust collector hose, or will I need an adapter? Thank you
Stan V on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is a standard shop vac port connection. No, a 4" hose would not fit on this reel; you could connect a 2.5" hose & shop vac port and adapt to your 4" vacuum/hose.
What are the dimensions completely assembled?
Roger G on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is 25 1/2" wide including the hand crank and hose connection. It extends 18 1/2 " from the wall and is 14" tall. I am very happy with mine and would recommend this.
Has any one hooked this up to a 1 HP 4" Harbor freight dust collection motor?
Mike E on Oct 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes
Is there significant suction loss over 40' of flexible hose?
I am interested in the 40' hose (Item #: 50669) to use in the Dust Right® Shop Vacuum Hose Reel (Item #: 52542) but I'm worried that my shop vac will lose too much suction over that length of flexible hose.

BEST ANSWER: I have noticed quite a bit of loss. I'm not sure if it's the 40' length vs. the fact that my shop vac is a 2.5" port that gets reduced to 1.5" hose. I have a 20' hose as well, and dont see much difference between the 20' and 40' hose loss (both have very noticeable loss). Using these hoses, i can pick up saw dust, but nothing bigger than that. My vac is a Shop Vac 6.5hp model - so it is very powerful. I also use a dust deputy, so the vac filter stays clean and doesn't contribute to loss.
Does this system work with Fein or Festool vacuums?
BartScott on Aug 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I found I can use any vacuum as long as there is an adapter to fit the 1.5 to 2 inch hose. The vacuum performs best at hp rates over 5 Currently using a shop vac 6.5 hp 14 gallon unit. Seems after all my efforts this unit is the most versatile for my shop.
is the vacuum suction port 4"?
lynn m on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, but you can purchase a adapter to go from 4" to 2" so you use a bigger vaccum system.
I have owned this unit for over a year and really like it. I have a 20' section of hose on it and would like to add another 20' section. Is there a fitting available that will splice two sections of 1-1/2" hose?
Steve on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I found the coupler at EVCO house of hose. The sell all types of hoses for every use. The connector was a few dollars. I now have 40 feet of hose. I works great!
Do you offer a retractable hose reel that can hang from the ceiling?
Kurt S on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This item is not well suited for a ceiling mount. It is an excellent product which needs to be mounted on the wall. I use it every time I am in the shop. I purchased an additional 25' of hose which allows me to use it for my cars in the garage. I have no regrets regarding this product.
What are the actual dimensions of the reel and its mounting plate, i have a limited amount of space to mount it in ?
