ryansbob I plan on making something to keep someones pants from getting sucked into the intake. Dont want it too small that it gets clogged up with leaves all the time though. I also want it to be removable so if we are at a job where we need the hose for some reason I can take it off and throw the hose on. DuallyVette Can you take a closer picture of your hose swing arm and where it pivots and articulates? That is the only thing I dont like about the Giant Vac, kind of a short hose support arm.
