So I found a good deal for a track saw recently and it’s my first and only Festool tool so far. I was wondering if there are any less expensive dust extraction hoses than the Festool ones that I can hook up to my shop vac

Loren beat me to it. I’ve got the same hose and it works great. Like many of the reviews say, the picture doesn’t actually match what the hose actually looks like. The end of the hose looks like a Festool one. With your track saw, it will fit inside the dust port rather than around it, but it will still works fine. Beats paying $150 for the Festool 36mm.

Yep.
I bought that bosch hose Loren linked to very shortly after buying my domino. The tool end of the hose fits the domino perfectly. It’s a very well-built hose too. Worth every penny.

Yep. Agree with the Bosch hose. I have one for my festool Miter saw. Fits fine and will work with the track saw. Enjoy your tracksaw. It is a very very nice tool. You will have no regrets.

I used my domino with an adapter for my shop vac hose a few times before I got fed up with it falling off and grabbed the bosch hose. Great investment.

I almost bought the festool hose too.
