The suction at the boot is awesome better than i anticipated really, Leaves no problem even cut grass clippings in a single pass, if it comes out the deck discharge its going up the into the hopper. i do have to take it slower with pine straw but still have had only two or three clogs since i have been using it all pine straw related. But i am running 8" hose and boot inlet at the blowers intake and 8" at the discharge. Good luck and I would love to see your progress if possible. any questions that I can help with just ask.
