Joe B has a chart that shows all the configurations of all diameters of hoses.

2 inch 4 to the door had the best CFM.

Doesn't make sense...

To run 2.5 to get increased airflow then 1.5 to reduce what you gained?
Well I don't do my it it often.

Only when I run my tile wands or devastator 12.


That's the way it comes off the reel 2 small 2.5 leader hoses to filter, 50 ft of 2.5, the last 200 ft is 2 inch.

My 15 foot 1 1/2 stays in the truck.

I mostly run 14 inch devastator or 14 sapphire wands
2.5 to 2 to 1.5

is that called "chokin' the chicken"??

..L.T.A.
Actually I believe it's called the

Law of deminishing returns

I'll use 100' of 2.5" after 150' of 2", if needed. I think there's another 50' of 2" under the 2.5".

Would you buy the new 425? What is suction like 100-150 ft away all the way up
I dunno about buying it, I'd have to try it. I got this used and it's my first truck mount that i got in 2019. The suction does well at 150 ft as long you set the blower for it. But the upgrading first run of hose to 2.5 improved it greatly. No complaints at all.

I run the first 75’, 2 1/2” vacuum hose for most cleaning jobs on my Butler with their 47 blower.

I run 2 1/2” vacuum hose all the way to the tool, either Waterclaw or Extreme Extractor when pulling water through carpet and pad on a water damage job.

Extraction is faster than evaporation.. I've always enjoyed reading your posts..
