    I have a 16hp Billy goat loader on my dump truck. I have the side of my dump really high for leaf season, so what I want to do is get a trac-vac exhaust hose set up so it can reach to the top of the truck. I looked on there web site but there no parts page.
    Can any help or any Idea's

    thanks

    There was a website kicking around which just sold those type of hoses. Do a search here and it might come up. I cant remember what it was called though.

    I use heavy duty plastic pipe. The kind I use is 8 in drain or sewage pipe. It is about $80 for 10 ft. The pipe should last for many years.

    I got a flexable hose last year from I hose .com. I think I got the T-7. The hose I got is crap. It has many splits and holes:mad: . I would not get the T-7 but try ihose.com. for intake hose.

    Check to see if you can order extensions or whatever you need from Billy Goat. You can jury-rig and finagle all you want (and boy do I know about that), but sometimes it is worth it to spend the money on factory parts.

    Ask other landscapers, or especially construction/excavation companies, about where to get pipes.

    Some people have used stove pipe, as well.
