Innovation Doesn’t Only Happen on the Vacuum Side of a Hose
You can make the world’s greatest vacuum, but if the accessory on the end of the hose doesn’t help, it can be frustrating. Milwaukee Air-Tip vacuum accessories target this often-overlooked part of the tool with an impressive offering of niche products.

Milwaukee Air-Tip Vaccum Accessories Design
Each accessory is specifically designed to fill a need. Most of these are niche, such as nozzles that clean behind pipes, flex to reach deeper into crevices, or pivot to clean high and low. We’ll get into those in just a minute.
One really big deal for the entire line is the compatibility. Every Milwaukee Air-Tip accessory pairs with 1 1/4, 1 7/8, and 2 1/2-inch hoses without the need for an adapter. Even if you’re using another brand’s vacuum, there’s a good chance Air-Tip accessories fit it. In addition to the trade-focused design of each nozzle, it opens up some excellent crossover options for use with vacs in your home.

Flexible Long Reach Crevice Tool 49-90-2030: $19.99

Pivoting Extension Wand 49-90-2031: $24.99
Useful on its own, but even more when you attach other Milwaukee Air-Tip accessories, this accessory pivots 180° and locks into multiple positions on its way around.
Magnetic Utility Nozzle 49-90-2032: $29.99
Milwaukee adds magnets to this nozzle outside and in, front and back so you can pick up dust and debris without pulling in nails, screws, and other metal objects that can tear your vacuum bag.
2 1/2-Inch Magnetic Utility Nozzle 49-90-2033: $34.99
Similar to the Magnetic Utility Nozzle above, this model is designed to only fit 2 1/2-inch hoses with less restriction in the neck to allow higher airflow.

Cross Brush Tool 49-90-2035: $17.99

Long Reach Flexible Micro Hose Set 49-90-2037: $39.99
Reaching where traditional nozzle sizes, shapes, and inflexibility can’t, the Long Reach Flexible Micro Hose Set includes an adapter with five tubes: 1/2-, 5/8-, and 1-inch hoses. All three come in 1-foot lengths and the larger two sizes also come in 2-foot lengths.
Rocking Utility Nozzle w/Brushes 49-90-2038: $17.99

Similar to the Rocking Utility Nozzle above, this model only fits 2 1/2-inch hoses and has less restriction in the neck area.

A) Fix “other side of the house” to “other side of the hose” at the beginning. B) I’m having the swiveling palm brush and the universal magnetic attachment delivered tomorrow to clean up after tile removal. I didn’t see the rocking brush on THD’s website when I ordered them and got the current promotion but that looks at least as useful in this case as the palm attachment. The cross brush looks interesting too. Otherwise it looks like someone at Milwaukee actually thought through how people use the vacuums on the job site and took customer suggestions seriously. That is… Read more »
well No.1 cock up is not making it pack out compatible.
I wish there was a close-up of the multi size plug end, I’m interested in how it’s designed. Also would be great to have some sort of attachment that held various tools but also attached to the vacuum.
Skip the bags for accessories, I want a box that clips on to the vacuum, like maybe a pack out style box to store accessories in.
