DeWalt DWH161N 18v XR Universal Cordless Dust Extractor

Battery AH Explained

The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.

Battery Voltage Explained

A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.

Customer Questions & Answers

Kiranjeet Sidhu asked on 26/09/2021

Q : Hi can this be used with dewalt cordless circular saws. If so then which models?

TooledUp answered on 27/09/2021

A : Hi Kiranjeet, I'm afraid I don't have a compatibility list but as mentioned previously it comes with a tapered adaptor which will fit into 25mm to 38mm diameter dust ports - this means you should be able to connect it to a wide variety of tools with what's available in the box. Note that it doesn't come with an Airlock adaptor though (which is what you might find on lots of recent DeWalt cordless circular saws)

Rob asked on 24/05/2021

Q : Will this work with a dewalt cordless sander? Does it need an attachment or does the end have the lock in connector? Thanks Rob

TooledUp answered on 26/05/2021

A : Hi Rob, it doesn't come with an airlock connector as standard but it will fit onto a wide variety of equipment as it is supplied with a tapered adaptor that goes from 25mm to 38mm, so this should enable you to connect to most sanders on the market without too much trouble

Simon Steele asked on 26/01/2021

Q : Can this be fitted to the dcs355 multi-tool for in-situ dust extraction whist removing tile grout?

TooledUp answered on 26/01/2021

A : The DWH161N is supplied with a stepped power tool adaptor so as long as the DCS355 is fitted with a suitable dust extraction adaptor (there is a 5ah kit version that includes one in amongst the accessories for example) it should work, yes. Though I'm afraid I'm not sure how effective it will be at extracting the dust in this scenario

Michael Carbin asked on 04/10/2020

Q : Well, can this b used as a general vacuum for clean up if area after job is finished! Ie cleaning out units etc after kitchen is fitted?

TooledUp answered on 05/10/2020

A : Hi Michael, as you can see from the images it is supplied with a crevice nozzle so yes, you can use it as a standalone unit for smaller clean up jobs like you suggest

bjorn asked on 14/01/2020

Q : can it be used for sawdust? or is it only for drill dust?

TooledUp answered on 15/01/2020

A : Hi Bjorn, yes the DWH161 can be used for sawdust (DeWalt say it is ideal for use with sanders, routers and jigsaws for example)
