bit of a missed opportunity that that hose does not have an air-lock connector on the end so you can easily connect it to the tools.  Airlock is so the way ahead.

 

I'm constantly feel at the moment that Dewalt are taking ages to release tools, and every time they do release one I like, I feel like there is a very small oversight which would not massively increase the cost of the tool from a manufacturing point of view, I wonder if this could be modified to accept airlock?

There was another recently released secret? Did I miss something? Also, do you know if DeWalt is going to announce anything during their June event that we haven't already seen?

I have to throw this card..

"No comment" ?

 

Sorry

Interesting observation. I also don't know what airlock is for vacuums.

This doesn't need Airlock. I think it's too small to hook it up to a tool. Not designed for such purpose. If you want you can put a DWV9000 airlock adapter on the end of the hose. It's easily changed. However, you won't be able to connect the hose back onto the front of the tool if you do this.

The times I've worked with XRP stuff on site, I'd hook it up to tools pretty frequently.  Sure it's not equivalent to a big dust extractor but it helps out a lot and at the time there weren't many cordless options.  After taking this long to update I'd expect them to do a bit more than swap the battery.
