To all of you out there with a bark blower: What brand of hose do you have best luck with? I have a 2 year old BB302 FINN unit that I bought new and am on my 2nd 100ft hose, and the 50' hose that came with it has lots of tape on it.... probably should be replaced. I am an owner operator so know for a fact its not the employees being too rough on it.... not walking on it, running over it, etc. It always seems to develop splits "between" the ribs at random places through the hose... not just at the female or male end of the hose. I feel like it should not be an expense to have to purchase a $1500-$2000 hose every year. Any suggestions on alternatives to the OEM hose? Thanks.
