Vacuum Hose Alternative?

Recommended Posts

jrichason
Hi, My vacuum collector currently has a short hose on it that is just long enough to reach the trailer. It would be nice to have a longer one for picking up leaves, but I don't really want to spend $150 on it. Has anybody found an alternative to the somplicity replacement hose? Thank you, John Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

Thanks Dutch! I don't know why I was thinking that I wouldn't need the shorter hose. Maybe it's all the leaves. Thanks again for your help, John Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

Hi all, You may want to explore dust collection equipment for hoses, nozzles, and such. [url]http://www.woodworker.com[/url] is a viable source. I have an extensive dust collection system in my shop and these accessories prove invaluable. A section of 6" x 18' of hose is $70, not too bad. DaveG

I actually used a 6" piece of solid plstic field tile from my blower to my trailer. This is the kind that does NOT have slits in it. It's a bit stiff, but I was able to bend it and attach without much trouble. DaveM

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
