    Was just finishing up on a three acre leafy lot when my Trac Vav uptake hose split. Bandaged it w/ some electrical tape to finish and headed over to a local ( high end) equipment dealer for four feet of 6" hose/tube. The counter guy rang it up at $12.88 per foot. Holy crap Batman, r u kidden!? Whats so special about this tube? Dumb look. I'm sure I got ganted but my hands were tied and had to move on. Thanx pal! Anyone know how much this tube really goes for...less the pretty lites and polished floors? Mowhead

    You think thats bad, you should see the bill when 18" intake hose needs replacing. All part of business my friend.
