8" intake i believe that black landscape tube is real stiff but it's clogged all the time then i have to beat the hell out of the pipe to fix the clog

That's normal, lol. It has a lot to do with how you have the hose routed too. If you're running it for example on the front of a trailer and picking up at the curb, you're putting a 90 degree bend in it. Try to feed with the straightest shot to the loader possible. I usually lay the hose on the ground and feed it with a rake rather than holding the hose. Usually a wiggly-jiggly shake and slam to the ground will clear the hose when it does clog. But I have the factory hose on my unit.

Ive had good success with this company and their leaf hose... http://www.wynnenv.com/Lawn_and_Leaf...ction_Hose.htm

I bought a few lengths back when I was running my Lesco leaf loader. If I decide to buy more hose for my larger giant vac unit this season I will be going back to them.
