    We have a tow behind leaf loader (Giant Vac), and a debris box on a Dodge Ram. What are some types of hoses people use for the discharge shoot, we have about 5 feet between the truck and the end of the machines discharge shoot. And where do you get it.

    Giant Vac should be able to sell you the length of hose you need. I have a 23Hp Billy Goat and I know I saw a hose to connect the Billy Goat discharge to a box in their catalog.

    I know this is an old post but I have the same question and problem.

    The billy goat discharge chute is way too expensive imo. My buddy had some trac vac part he let me try out and everything was 7inches, too hard to fit everything easily.

    Anyone else?

    hurry up and bring your giant vac back, get your money and put it toward an Extreme Vac. Same with billy goat boy, trust me, you will thank me.
