Yes it does. ****But****-- check out the photo. This is a part where the design engineers were out on break. The only screw at the bottom (there are 2 on the side totaling 3 altogether) that holds this large sized dust port is held in by a screw thats so undersized it serves no purpose and goes right through the mounting hole on the chute itself. Pointless. Serious disappointment with such a well designed piece of machinery. I'm surprised Dewalt let that slide under the radar. The screw is not long enough to put a washer on it, and is too short to take the lock ring thats machined to it off, to try and put a washer on. The whole dust chute tilts upwards under the slightest movement (because theres no proper fastener), my 4" dust hose is heavy enough to hold it down. Read Less

Answer: 
Dewayne,
I recently purchased a Dewalt 734 with dust chute. It has a shop vac attachment which seems to clog constantly. I modified mine by installing a simple adjustable air nozzle to the dust manifold that attaches to the back of the planner opposite the exit port. Attach a air hose and adjust the air flow. works fine for me.

when you say dust port, you're talking about an avenue in which this tools expels dust/shavings, right? there is a place where you can attach a shop vac. we found that it clogged easily and had to use a long screwdriver to unclog it a few times when planing about two dozen boards. overall, still an excellent tool. the clogging was our one and only "con."

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does everything I need it to from pine stud to rock maple I bought this planer a few years back when I started making guitars. My wood of choice is usually rock maple and I've had no issues planing guitar necks at around 2" wide through to guitar body halves up to 9" wide. I also use it for finishing cheap stud pine for other projects and of course, after dealing with the maple the pine offers little resistance. I'm confused by other reviews who say they've had the motor bog down on hardwoods. I normally skim 1/32" (around half a turn) at a time, sometimes a little more, sometimes less and don't recall the motor struggling. Not sure if I've ever tried taking 1/16" or more off of hardwood in a single pass so maybe that's where the problem lies? My latest project was to make a loft bed for my 11 year-old daughter and she had no issues making adjustments and running the boards herself after a little instruction. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic, smooth finish I was leaning toward the Makita, due to quietest noise claims. But I saw a review from an independent source that the Mak was actually a bit nosier when planing wood. That and the fact HD has the Dewalt in stock. I am thrilled with it. I have it in my basement and the dust collector catches 99 % of the dust, I get a little out the front, but the back and the fine just gets sucked away. No problem with boards feeding. Not a power house, but leaves a better finish than the big boys. That was what I wanted. No waves from cutterhead. June 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Waste Your Money I'm not anti-DeWalt. And I know that benchtop tools generally aren't meant for any kind of heavy use or high degree of accuracy. But this planer...it's garbage when trying to plane anything but tiny slivers of soft wood. 6" wide maple, cherry and walnut, even when taking off the smallest amount of lumber possible - like making 16 passes to take off 1/16", turning the crank 1/16 each pass - the motor bogs down, the planer jams, the rollers stop feeding the wood through and instead just cook it...if l could do it all over again, I'd but any other planer out there but this one. The results are horrible and it takes forever to get them. April 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good Ok I bought this machine so I could mill the exotic hardwoods you cant buy in the big box stores. I am an advanced intermediated woodworker, I've been doing this on and off for 30 years. This is not a commercial machine, so if you are the full time woodworker (doing this for a living) this is not the machine for you. You need to invest in a commercial product that can handle that type of work load. I have never used a thickness planer. Due to the limited videos on YouTube, very few were clear on how to properly use this planer. I took an online course that instructed you on how to mill your own lumber. It was very extensive, easy to follow and only cost $19. The machine was easy to set up. As for anyone that complained about the dust cover screws they are easily accessible. I used past wax on all the tables. I planed two 4/4 by 8 rough sawn Walnut 30 inches long. I followed the course to a T, and had no issues. I jointed one side flat before running through the planer. At no time did I remove more than 1/32nd of material on each pass, I was in no rush. Both boards came out the same thickness with no snipe. I also allowed the blades to cool periodically during operation. Just like drill bits used in hardwoods they will burn and dull and so will these blades. When complete I wiped everything down and vacuumed out he saw dust, if you take care of this machine it should last you awhile. I know I haven't run a 100 board feet through this like some people but again I am not a commercial business and for the money this is a great machine. December 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good so far, but sending the wrong handle attachment screw seems ridiculous. So far I am enjoying my new planer. I was disappointed that they included a screw that is too short to attach the adjustment handle. I also thought it was very poor planing to have the dust port attachment screws so difficult to get lined up because there is not room to hold a screwdriver at the proper angle when screwing the side screws in. This makes it a giant hassle if you ever want to fold up the rear table. Other than those 2 small flaws, I am digging it so far. Very clean cuts. and will do the job for me. May 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dewalt planer review I purchased this as the economical option to Dewalt's other planer, and I am very impressed. While is lacks the two speed option offered on the other planer I have not had a time when I thought that would be necessary, seeing the quality of the cut and the fact that I can hardly keep up feeding in boards as it is! I had some snipe on a couple of boards, but realized that I did not lock the carriage and completely removed it. Only negative thing I have to say is that if you cannot fold the out feed table up on the backside without removing the dust chute, which is held in place with screws, which I prefer if you do not move it around, but would get in the way if you want to fold up often. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome results and a super time saver An expensive addition to our workshop, but totally worth it. The amount of time saved + the high quality result = money well spent. We salvage wood from pallets. We started out using a hand planer and sander to get the boards smooth. Let's just say this tool revolutionized what we're doing to achieve smooth, uniform thickness boards! The boards come out amazingly smooth, I think we jumped up and down a little when we fed our first board through. I would give this tool 4.5 stars, ONLY because the shavings get clogged up quite a bit. So i went on the plus side of that and gave it 5 stars. November 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UNBELIEVABLE.....AWESOME RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX I am a INTERMIEDIATE woodworker.....NOT a pro, NOT a novice. This planer is over the top and SO MUCH MORE that I expected. I tried some test pieces, and just like that SMOOTH as GLASS. Hook up your shop vac to the chip collector, and 95% of the chips are removed from the work area. MOST IMPORTANT RECCOMENDATION.....KNOW YOUR WOOD GRAIN, especially for the hardwoods like MAPLE, OAK, and WALNUT....DO NOT plane wood against the grain, it's more likely to chip out on you. If you are not familiar, go to your lumberyard and the will be happy to show you. This is a great middle pricepoint buy. I did not want to spend big bucks, but I wanted quality, and I AM SOOOO GLAD I WENT WITH THIS MODEL..... AAAAAAAAA+ December 5, 2012
