After a few searches I see lots of positive comments about the hose, looks like most of the regulars spoke kindly about it some time ago. I’d like a followup from you guys to see how it held up overtime? How sturdy is it, if I asked one of my kids to help out in the shop and they pull it hard going around corners and such will it hold up?

Thanks again for your feedback…I really want to buy the 21ft model, the holder and a few accessories.

I’ve had the 21’ expandable hose for about a year now. It’s held up fine and I have no complaints. I would recommend connecting it to the DC with a Dust Right swivel connector:

I have the 21 foot one too. So far it has worked for me in my basement shop. I like it because I can store it easily, just wish I got the longer one. I plan on hooking it up to a dust barrel that uses the Rockler dust fittings.

I’ve had the 10 foot one with a quick connect for almost 2 years now. I roll my dust collector around and am constantly disconnecting and reconnecting back and forth between my table saw, router table, planer, and band saw since my dust collector pretty much is a one tool dc. Its very durable. Very thick plastic with metal coils. Very happy with it. The other good thing is when the DC is turned on, it sucks the loose coils together and tightens up helping with airflow.

I’ve been using my dust right system for over 3 years and I like it very much. It has held up well. I see no signs of wear and I expect it will last well into the future. I now have ports set up so I can connect the hose to 9 different machines and I am about to add a 10th (the osculating spindle sander).

If you think you need the 21’ version, then I recommend getting the 28’ one. It is a great product, but it is difficult to stretch to the full described length. It wants to retract when the DC is on. Expect a few feet of loss where the hose drops to the ground and some more loss when it bends to go around a power tool. I have a 23’x13’ shop with the 28’ DustRight mounted about 4’ from one corner. It is a real struggle to vacuum all the way to the far corner.

This is what I use. I have not used the Dust Right though so I can’t compare them. I have been satisfied with it. One big perk for it is that it is a perfect fit for 4” sewer and drain, so I can make my own dust port and blast gates.
