    Ok, might seem dumb, but How does a boom stand work for a 8"x25' long vac hose-if the boom is only a few feet long?

    lawn boy just wrap the hose around the chute and tie it off but wait untill the thing cools off or u will melt the hose

    The hose is 12" diameter LOL. I need to make a boom support for my Giant Vac Loader because the one that went with it was broke. Its difficult to maneuver 12" diameter hose in your hands, so I REALLY need the boom for the job, not for storage or transport.

    I think the main purpose of the boom is to help you swivel the hose around, but more important for the hose to have a straight shot into the impeller. I Will take a pic of mine today.
