Topic tags/keywords: dw735 planer dust collection

I was at Lowes over the weekend to pickup some glue and of course had to make my way through the aisles… Connected to the DW735 they were selling was an excellent looking dust collection hood which I’m thinking I could get away with hooking the Shopvac directly to. This would remedy the only issue that I have with the 735…

Present system requires the usage of a dryer hose zip tied to the Shopvac. Effective but gets in the way and obviously requires additional set up time…

Issue – Lowes does not sell the hood by itself and I have been unable to locate it through Dewalt or otherwise… Anyone familiar with this collection hook up and or know where to attain one?? Thanks!

Have you looked at the manual and gotten a part number? Try calling DeWalt parts to see if you could order a replacement part. Or maybe a regional service center would sell you the part.

Not exactly what you asked about the hood, but you could consider building a dust/chip collection stand for it, that’s what I did: The D735 has a strong impeller and doesn’t need to be hooked to a shop vac.

I currently use a “2.5” to 4 adapter and just have it directly connected to my dust deputy without the shop vac on.

I initally used black and decker leaf bag but it still makes a huge mess and the fan makes the bag inflate a lot.

I’ll have to check my local Lowes for that adapter.

I once had a “bag” that was made for this planer. It attached to the planer with a hose and to a garbage can with a porous “bag” with a draw string. It is no longer available, that I can find. I gave it to a friend, and he likes it. I now have my planer hooked to my dust collection system.

You want to hook the 735 to a shop vac? Do you have any idea of the volume of wood chips that come out of the 735?

I have the DeWalt hose and fabric can cover. I can fill a 20 gallon garbage can with chips in about 15 minutes. A shop vac would likely fill in only a couple of passes. You don’t really need a vacuum to collect the chips from the 735 because it has an internal blower that will move the chips to a nearby container. I’ve learned that the DeWalt hose is no longer available, but it would seem that you could rig a large shop vac hose to the 735 and feed the other end through a loosely woven fabric cover (burlap maybe) over a large 30-40 gallon garbage can and hold it on with a wrap of bungee cord. The fabric needs to filter the hips but let the air out of the can without much resistance.

It’s a shame that DeWalt seems to have discontinued the hose/can cover accessory, because it works so well.
My only complaint with it is the location of the outlet port on the 735. It should have been off to the side to keep the hose from catching on the board being planed.
