It works great. The vac is a 16hp lesco. I broke the shaft in our first engine a few years back and upgraded with electric start. It was a pain trying to start that thing with the recoil. I had it angled so I could pull it from the ground but still a pain. The electric start is awesome. Also modified and upgraded the exhaust after a small fire. I have had this design for 10 years and I am always looking for different Ideas. The back gate latches with the tail gate and has a tormenter pole mounted to the inside to hold the door open if needed. If you guys want any more pictures let me know.

Update: we located a 2 foot section of 8" vacuum hose, slit the sides a little and slid it over the square discharge. We used 2 hose clamps to hold it on. There are gaps between the round pipe and square discharge but it seems to be working fine. Thanks for everyone's help.
