I got this to take my outfeed from a table saw and a couple of other woodworking devices that were too big for the default 1" hose. This does the job perfectly. The hose is solid, a healthy length to to the job and appears durable after a couple of weekends of use.
However, as reported by others, the hose arrives with a couple of bits to put together (though it was simple, a little piece of paper shows how to insert the hose into the collar and lock it into place with a plastic key bit).No problems there.
The only reason I haven't rated this a 5 star is that the screw attachment for the shop vac is a little ornery sometimes. Unlike the shop vac branded one where the collar turns easily around the hose, in this case, it seems to just not want to turn easily and cross-threads occasionally.
Perfect fit to replace the hose i ran over with my motorcycle on my 1 gallon shop vac. Comes with differing adapters that the hose can be pushed on to for the type of vac you have. Durable and holding up well to the demands of my shop.Glad i bought this.
Kept adding refrigerant because I couldn't get it to reach the position on the gauge I wanted to! After I had added a 2nd can of refrigerant and disconnected it from the car, I discovered that the AC was blowing warm air!
I reconnected it to the port to check it and I discovered that the gauge was now reading in the overfilled red zone! I was forced to bleed off probably the entire 2nd bottles worth to get the gauge to read in the zone I was shooting for in the first place!!
Talk about $30 into the wind!!!! Perhaps I purchased a faulty gauge!!
I really like this hose. The handle makes it easier to hold in a more natural position to vacuum. It feels different and is lighter weight than my original hose, but that makes it easier to carry. It is a very tight fit into my outlet, but while it makes it hard to manager where the outlet is behind a chair, it gives better suction.
The only negative I have to say about it is that the handle came disassembled and we had to try to assemble it with no instructions. I eventually figured it out, but it does not stay on unless, as I did, one runs a length of tape around it to keep it from separating.
Once I did this, I have no complaints.
I am very satisfied with my purchase. This hose handle fits my Shark NV500 perfectly! I clean houses and have already used it and everything went just as expected. My original house had holes in the top where the handle bends and I used duct tape for a while but decided it was time to splurge for a new hose handle.5 stars!
Excellent seller and the product is 100% what he said was!!Thank you x1000
Long story short, I ran over the hard plastic hose tip and cracked it into 4 pieces. This may or may not have involved 2 of my boys goofing around and forgetting to hang the hose back up on the wall properly.
The tip itself is unavailable for purchase, so this is the next closest option. Pricing wise, at the time of my purchase amazon was the cheapest. However, I have to say, this is not very environmentally friendly. The hose itself was in perfect shape.
This long hose should have been the best tool for cleaning the vents. But because the design is not perfect, it can not place its role. If the curve suction can be taken away after connecting with the long hose ,or provide a flexible suction which can be adjusted from curve to straight or vice verse, then it will be a excellent tool to clean everything in the house including cleaning the vents (not just the surfaces of the vents).
I hope the manufacture can think about that, provide a better and useful tool. If such kind of tool can be shown up in the market (on Amazon), I will definitely buy one.
Good replacement for the rubber grounded vacuum hose that came with the 3M vacuum system. This is flexible, yet stretchable enough (10 feet plus or minus), to use so you can set the vacuum in one place. Has the grounding/bonding wire built in.
This was a perfect fit for my Shark Lift Away vacuum that I've had for several years. So far I've had to replace both this short hose assembly as well as the long one due to cracking. Installation was extremely easy and my vacuum continues to function well for relatively cheap replacement costs thanks to products like these.
The hose is not wired reinforced like the older one I have from the early 80's BUT it is much lighter and easy to maneuver around the house. Since it's lightweight it doesn't scrap against the furniture either. It is described as wire reinforced but that's wrong.
I have suggested to Amazon during a chat to have the sellers changed that. In that chat I was told that IF it wasn't wire reinforced that Amazon committed to give me the option of returning it at no cost to me.
However, I decided to keep it.... The handle is great.... I bought the 42 foot long and have no reduction in power using one that long. You do have to unwind it before you start to vacuum or it will kink.
That's not a big deal to me. I believe this will last many many years. I have my original hose sine 1981 and I still use it as well. They are made a little different today but I think it is a very good product for the money.
This hose has a curved end which gives wrist relief for those who use it on a daily basis. The extra length is just what I need to clean high, low and behind without being too long that the vacuum won't follow you without getting stuck.
The hose reaches from one side of the car to the other. The best part is the suction reducer. Since more power is better and the vacuums now have higher suction sometimes it is too much. Rotate the suction ring so that the bypass is open for reduced suction.
If you need extra momentary suction just put your finger over the bypass and increase the suction. So if you have some nuts and bolts with saw dust in between just open the bypass and remove the saw dust without sucking up the nuts and bolts!
It's great for the shop, home, car, computer keyboard, you name it!
This hose was just what my vaccuum cleaner needed!!! Nothing like a new bit of hose to upgrade an old and tired machine. It's just what it says on the box. And seriously it works like a dream now
I am completely happy with the product. I didn't give it a full 5 stars only on the account that it is a little long. I imagine this part was made to be used with several models so it kinks in the slightest bit when vacuum is at full upright position.
This does not affect the suction to the best of my knowledge and is in a fully open position when under normal use during cleaning. (Vacuum at an angle) overall I am very happy with this replacement to oem part.
It is a different color white not gray, but who cares it's a vacuum. Ends connected just as factory. I would completely recommend this to anyone and I would purchase again should the need ever arise.
Ok, I am keeping in mind I paid $12 for this hose, 1/3 the price of the one on the Dyson site. The hose is good quality - identical to the original as far as I can tell. The bottom attachment needed a wiggle to get it seated but it is fine.
It's a good quality hose. However, as other users have pointed out, the top end attachment is a nightmare to get on. If your process is like mine, you already duct taped the bejeesus out of the original hose before replacing this one.
As such, I had adhesive residue on the wand shaft, which I removed with rubbing alcohol prior to insertion attempt #1.No go. The little white buttons are a nightmare. Ok, insertion attempt #2 involved a little bit of WD-40.Nope, no go.
Insertion attempt #3 was preceded by the forceful removal of the white button assembly with a screwdriver. I just pried it out in one piece. I got the wand part in.It was tough. I'm a kind of little person, so other people might have an easier time, but it was a beast.
Great quality.Could not asked for a better fit to replace my broken hose.Highly recommend!
