Well the thread is about electric truckmounts.......Here's the plot... It produces 200 inches of water-lift.
We're talking about a portable, not a truckmount. Truckmounts have blowers rated by CFM. Portables are typically rated by inches of water-lift. With a truckmount it's normal to run a hundred plus feet of hose, so CFM is important. With a Porty running a relatively short hose (normally 25-50 feet) water-lift is important.
The new Airwatt vac motors are high efficiency motors that can produce higher water-lift, with less current draw than older style vac motors could provide. There are a few portables that now use the Airwatt motors. These vac motors produce suction that's impressive for any portable user.
Much harder to calculate performance from a truck. You dont have any drop in suction but the longer the hose, the bigger the drop in CFM. The longer the hose, the more CFM you need. You can measure it in time. Put on a certain length of hose, seal it and time how long it takes for the motors to rev up to full capacity. Then add more hose and repeat. You will find the longer the hose, the larger the time lag.58 cfm @ 68" water lift for a single blower, using the 3/4" orfice rule of thumb.
Sorry to hear, your right you can only play the cards as they are dealt but some hands are harder to play than others.. all the best!Life sucks but it is life.
My mother had back surgery 2 months ago. Rehab and back home for a month. Now pain is back and we to call Hospice.
It's not always what we want. You do the best with what is thrown at you. Enjoy the gift of life, it goes by fast.
Well the thread is about electric truckmounts.......
A vacuum performance curve would be helpful in determining the performance one could expect running their porty from the truck.
