Received in a timely fashion
After using grey flex hose for 2 years, I bought 2 of these hoses. I hooked them up to my planer and jointer; tools that I move around a lot. Now I can move them in a 10 ft radius around my dust collector without any slack in the hose. They are also very light and flexible, unlike grey dust hose. I used to break off the dust collecton port off my planer with the grey dust hose if I wasn't careful. But this hose takes away all the thinking, you can move the tool anywhere in the shop, without disconnecting the dust hose!
While the hose does want to return to its original length, it has worked well for my purpose, a short run of hose to connect a dust collector to a cyclone. I would not like it as a primary hose between the collector and a machine: it would be a constant fight to keep the hose extended.
Tried this hose since it looked great. What a pain to work with. All this hose wants to do is return to its original size. It's a constant fight to get it connected. Will not buy again.
