    How high does the shoot need to be going into the box?

    Does it need to be at the very top. The shoot is 12" down from the top of the box.

    My box is 6ft tall and about a foot from the top and works fine.

    How tall is your box?

    this is a good question. i see so many guys build these elaborate boxes, and then shoot the material in half way up the box. it is best to get the shoot as high as possible so you can fill the box the whole way to the top. no since in building a box and then shooting the material in halfway up. a foot or less from the top seems to work best.

    The box will fill up completely with the hose at 12" below the top.
    No problem. Assuming lots of ventilation has been engineered into the set up of course.
