Planex Easy Hose Connection Diameter
« on: February 24, 2018, 10:43 PM »
Hi All:
Thinking about a Planex Easy for some upcoming drywall work. Unfortunately, I don't have a CT, just a Midi with an Ultimate Dust Deputy and don't have the shop space (when done) or the cashews for a bigger vac.

So here's my question: will I be able to connect the current hose that I have (27 mm dia at the tool end) to the Planex Easy? The specs are a little confusing and it mentions both 27 and 36 connection diameters:

Idle engine speed                             400 - 920 RPM
Power consumption                                      400 watt
Weight                                                8.8 lbs (4 kg)
Abrasive dia.                                      8.9" (225 mm)
Dust extraction connection dia.           1-7/16" (36 mm)
Interchangeable sanding pad dia.     8-1/2" (215 mm)
Length                                          63.00 in (1.60 m)
Max. dust extraction connection dia.   1-1/16" (27 mm)

Would I need the 36 mm hose for this pup? Any help would be appreciated!

I just found Tool Nuts video on it. The answer is yes, but the hose connect lock only grabs the 36, which is better to use for it.

Never mind (per Rosanne Rosannadana. SNL reference there).

@c_dwyer, looks like you got the answer to your question. If the locking hose is important to you, consider getting the Planex hose separately to use with your current vac.
