    It can be done with no performance problems. The problem you can run into is the hose will drag the ground more than normal. That's what wears out a hose more than anything. Also, keep the hose as straight as possible to minimize wrinkles that sticks can wedge into and start clogs.

    Let me know if you have any other questions I can help you with.

    No problem. A 10" Hose coupler kit 810776 (list $45), 10"x10' hose 791033# (list $391) would be all you need. It's about 6 inches wide and 10 inches in diameter. It goes inside the hose and is clamped on there from the outside via a hose clamp. You then add the extension to the remaining 3-inches of the extension and clamp it on there. Cut your hose to length is so inclined. Add your intake nozzle to the end and you're ready to go.

    Let me know if there are any other questions.
