Vacuum Adapters for DeWalt Tools


Number one on the list has to be the DWV9000 universal connector with its twist lock swivel action. It connects to DeWalt tools that have a dust port. Pair it with the DWV9190 2.5″ hose adapter, connect it to a shop vac, and you’re good to go.

Works great for clearing the wood chips from this DeWalt planer.

The DWV9000 reverse threads onto a 1-1/4” hose and has three ball bearings that twist-lock onto DeWalt dust ports giving it a swivel action. I’ve only used it with the DeWalt 1-1/4″ hose.

Outside of that, I use the DWV9000/9190 combo with RIDGID 2-1/2” hoses, which have 2-1/4″ OD (outside dimension) connectors to fit 2-1/2″ accessories. I also use it with a 10′ RIDGID 1-7/8” hose via the RIDGID 10″ hose and connector kit with 1-7/8″ to 2-1/2″ cuff adapter.

Not sure how good this kit is from Amazon but it looks the same only in gray:

Above, far left, is the DWV9150 angle adapter connected between the miter saw dust port and the DWV9000. The middle pic shows it on a dust bag extension. Anytime you want to angle away, this is the guy.

I’ll update this post with more DeWalt adapters in the coming days. Hope this helps and I’ll talk to you later.

Hey, I'm Alex and I love tools. Having worked in carpentry and as a painting contractor I have a great appreciation for tool innovation. The freedom of cordless is amazing. These days, when not traveling with my wife Zhou, I remodel houses and write tool reviews. Enjoy the website. :)


  1. The thing that is missing is what hose actually works with these adapters. I have ordered and returned a half dozen different hoses that were described as 1-1/4″ from Amazon and other places and not a single one fits.

    • Yeah, hose sizing is a little wonky. The DeWalt 1-1/4″ hose is actually 1-9/16″ outside dimension (OD) with a connector that’s 1-3/16″ to fit 1-1/4″ accessories. 1-1/4″ should be the call so not sure how to order otherwise.

      Outside of the DeWalt 1.25″ hose, I use the DWV9000/9190 combo with RIDGID 2.5” hoses, which have 2.25″ OD connectors to fit 2.5″ accessories. I also use it with RIDGID 1-7/8” hoses via the RIDGID 1-7/8″ to 2-1/2″ cuff adapter.
