    Have you looked into 4 to the door or 2.5" hose? I've never run either but if your running a 56 blower I'd have thought that would of given better result and freed up a truck?

    Roots 56. I used 2 trucks because each carry 300’ of vacuum hose. If I need a 300’ run and I want to run 2 -2” hoses 100’ i’ll need 400’ of hose.

    I’ll have to take 100’ of hose off a 2nd truck anyway. I hate having extra hose just laying on the floor of the truck and the 2nd truck had already gassed up and was done for the day at 1 pm when the crew went to the commercial job.

    The truck was available and rather than taking just the hose and running 4 to the door (yes are vacuum tank lids are set up for this) we just took the truck and hooked them both up. I’m not a physicist but I have to think that creates more vacuum and CFM’s than the same hose run hooked to 1 truck. @Hack Attack

    You’re definitely getting a stronger lift that way, but I don’t see it being much of a difference in dry times with already having a 56blower.

    @CJ-FL a 56 blower isn't lacking anywhere, and you know your setup I don't..

    Im just comparing it to my lil 36 which with no hose attached is restricted by 2" tank connection, 2" is 2" the restriction is the same no matter how big the blower or number of blowers.

    I'd have thought just with 1 truck setup that the vacuum relief would be open and self governing due to 2" restriction, 2 trucks same same 2" restriction..

    But like I said you know your setup better than me :icon_cool:

    I am sure it worked fine but it is more work to set up and take down plus the gas of the extra truck. I wonder if you increased the rpm by 500 and ran the first 50-100 feet of 2.5 inch then the 2 inch, how much better it would be?

    Someone in Florida I won’t say who says they think the massive blower Stanley uses is under spun!

    So it prolly got the same cfm as a Butler cough cough or less!

    Even if spun faster the CFM would be limited by the 2” hose. Right? I would still like to see some sort of CFM calculator where you could input hose diameter and length and see max CFM, etc... anyone know of any literature or websites

    True! that’s where you could run 2.5 inch hose the first 50 ft for a big improvement.

    I wonder how’s the vacuum feel at the end of a 300 ft hose run?

    tank and filter design, hose lay out, joiners/cuffs, foam etc all effect the outcome.

    The Butlers respond well to 2.5 inch hose.

    Plumbing is not restricted.

    One of these days we have been planning to do a dual van set up with 2.5 inch hose like @CJ-FL just did. We have the y already and lots of 2.5 inch hose.

    We will reduce down to 2 inch of course.

    Nice being up couple to 3 or more floors. Gravity helps the suction too :)
