Leaf loader Set up questions

hey guys I was wondering where some of you buy that thick corrugated flexible hose that you attach to the end of your leaf loader and goes into the truck? I currently have a piece of aluminum heating duct but its kind of a pain.

i have a piece of that heavy 8 or 10 pipeing and it works great except it i have a square discharge tube and i hadnt had a chance to get an adapter made. So i just stuffed a couple of rags to stop the blowout. It helped a lot cause it was getting all over my mowers.

Oh man. I drove around for 3 hours looking for 8" or 10" corrugated drainage pipe Tuesday. I'm also using the aluminum heating duct pipe but its a major PIA! The only place I found that stocks it is called Kennedy culvert in Hillsborough nj. They sell it by the 20' section for $100-$120. I only needed 4' so I decided to stick with the aluminum. If you want to split a 20' piece let me know. Just message me.

I use a piece of 6" PVC to go from the loader into the truck. It's worked great so far and any plumbing supply house should carry it

I googled 8" flexible hose in cities around me. Found a supplier of ducting/blower hose that had different kinds of Tiger flex and Kana flex tube. They sold it by the foot. I went thru dultmeier.com.

Look into industrial hose and rubber companies.
