This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Dirt and debris can be the scourge of every job site. They limit your visibility, increase cleanup times, and can even damage valuable equipment (like your eyeballs) if they get in the wrong place. These dust extractors help tame the problem, as they can attach to power tools or be used like vacuums to suck up any stray particles that might be created due to your efforts. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 02, 2019:

Dust extractors inhabit the middle ground between vacuums and collectors, and as such can be equally useful for professional contractors and home DIY-ers. We tried to include models that were feasible for any budget, as well as powerful — and expensive — ones capable of handling all-day use at a busy shop.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
