Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by drjimdmd Accessory Documentation poor
Vacuum is excellent, but comes with only one tool. There is no documentation on the box what size hose comes with the tool. Additional accessories come in a few sizes and the stores I went to had these all mixed up in the bins they were supposed to be in. Took multiple trips to store to fully equip the unit with all necessary accessories.The manual does not specify the hose diameter either.
Additional extension tubes which come with most other vacs are not included. Total cost to outfit this tool is greater than their more powerful vacs which come with many more accessores standard.
Seems a lot to pay for a portable in light of above.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CJL 1-7/8" Vac to 2-1/2" Saw Solution
This adapter is not designed to attach a 1-7/8" vacuum to a 2-1/2" tool though you think it would.
Home Depot does have a 56¢ solution. Purchase a "1-1/2 in. ABS DWV Hub x Hub Coupling" (Store SKU # 188239). The coupling fits perfectly within the 2-1/2" tool outlet and the 1-7/8" hose fits perfectly within the coupling. I leave the coupling in my saw all the time. See the pictures. There is also a PVC version if you prefer white. Hope this helps other people.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gap66 Really keeps the dust down.
The only problem I had with this tool was the vacuum hose adapter. Between my rigid shop vac I bought a rigid reducer and couldn't really make it fit too well. I ended up slicing the adapter that came with the sander so I could force it into the Rigid reducer. Other than that it really worked well keeping the dust down and if you arms get tired the vacuum will hold it on the wall for you.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dfrost only one of three adapters actually adapts
I needed adapters to connect the 1-7/8" hose from the Ridgid shop vac to the small dust exit on a Ridgid belt sander and also to a router table that uses a 2-1/2" dust port. So this seemed like the ideal solution. Unfortunately, only the smallest adapter actually fit both ends - the belt sander and the shop vac hose.
The other two adapters are the hose diameters (1-7/8" and 2-1/2"), not the diameters that would fit over or inside the other part, so the only way to use them would be wrapping duct tape at the joints. That seems unacceptable.
I'm not rating this lower because that one adapter does work well, and at least the cost of the set wasn't much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toolman2 Much needed adapter set. Home Depot only source. Helped fit the unique size fittings on tools.
Liked the flexible adapters, made air tight seal easy, and worked with one of a kind size tool fittings, and with off size standard sizes as well. I shopped woodworking stores and other big box home improvement stores but only foun these at Home Depot.
