Hey everybody....

I did a search, but didn't find much.

I need to get 2 hoses for our leaf collection system.

We have hoses from our Exmark UltraVac to a leaf collection cart that is towed behind the rider.

Hose is 8" diameter and I need about 7-8' long. I found a few online, but would like some recommendations from you guys.

Ideal would be somewhere in Minnesota (Twin Cities Area) where I could go pick up.

Thanks!!

Central Power Distrubtor is where my dealer go mine last fall. Ok quality. I would talk to Rich at MN Maintence in Shokopee. I bet he has stuff on hand. It is pricey though.

These are different grades of hoses, sold by the same company. PVC is the cheapest, urethane is stronger and has better puncture resistance. The urethane hoses come in two thicknesses, .030 and .045. The .045 is going to last the longest so I would probably go with that one. Its a bit pricey though.
