To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We would have preferred a much wider range of plastic hoses, bends, fittings, and attachments. I needed much larger dia piping for better air flow. These were the best range I could find to construct my wood work dust control vacuum/cyclone system. Don't know why these mass produced plastic products are so limited in the choice of sizes and also expensive? Some one should start a new business with the health conscious wood worker's vac system in mind and do much better than this poor effort.
Very disappointed in this purchase, they say it is 1.25" in the description so this is why I bought it... I wanted to use this with my DeWalt orbital sander dust collection adapter which is 1.25" and well this hose is just a bit too small.
Build quality is good overall but given that it is not actually 1.25" in diameter I cannot recommend this product.
Seems sturdy enough for my light-duty needs. The included adapters connect to my Shop Vac and accessory heads. But will NOT connect to my King Canada random orbital sander (1 3/16" OD output). Luckily I have a piece of old bicycle inner tube that will do the trick. Would be 5 stars if it connected to my sander.
I would recommend this for dust collection only, not for vacuuming up debris of any size. The hose inner diameter is even smaller than my entry-level Shop Vac, so things like wood chips or shavings would be more likely to clog it.
As far as vacuum tubes go, this one is too narrow. And a bit too long. As a consequence the vacuum cleaner is constantly struggling and your motor will burn out earlier. Better get a truly 2.5 inch pipe than this. Bigger is better to maintain suction power. Although shorter is better too. Unless you require so narrow a tube, avoid.
In the past 1 1/4 inch hose was the inside measurement, this product its the outside measurement. I bought a similar product a year ago and I checked some older ones in the shop, all 1 1/4 inch inside. Beware!
It's a small vacuum hose and the fittings need a lot of force to fit together since their sizes are a little off. I tried using this on my Dewalt 6" sander but it doesn't fit. Don't recommend when using to reduce a 2-1/2" vacuum hose to 1-1/4". I'll be buying a 2-1/2" hose and from another company too.
Tal como comentan otros esta manguera ni los accesorios que trae encajan en NINGUNO de los otros accesorios que tengo para aspiradoras, tuve que hacer adaptadores.
Lo bueno es que es bastante flexible y bastante extensa, la calidad bastante buena. Si estás dispuesto a lidiar con los ajustes para que se adapte al resto de las herramientas o accesorios entonces es recomendable.
