I have a Butler with an electric reel. The Flexhaust hose that came with my truck keepso crushing due to heat. I am considering trying new hose with the blue lining; lil' better vacation hose. I'm Also considering adding one section of 2 1/2". Has anyone else experienced this issue and tried this brand of hose?

Great hose
The 2 1/2 hose is a great hose just remember it's big and doesn't flex like 2 inch hose
Running it to the door is usually not a problem we even on most jobs use all 2 1/2 hose and a short 2 inch whip hose of less than 20 feet

You need a 4.7 or bigger blower for there to be enough difference between just 2 inch and the 2 1/2
