So I have a new 3" marine hose to put on but it doesn't have the reinforced wire in it. Will this hold up for awhile? before tearing crap out of old hose taking it off that needs replaced but is still doable should I hold off until I get a new hose that has the wire or put new one without wire. Anybody have luck with this holding up? thank you. they not terribly cheap so would like to use if its doable

the blower and waste tank hook up is not totally lined up so at 17" theres a slight bend and thought the wireless would be easier to work with but questioning it

You can lay the new hose on the ground, use you palm to push down with force to see how much the new hose resists pressure.

The new hose looks like it can handle heat and mild chemical.
As for the handling vacuum pressure, it does not say.
The marking look like it can take, hold pressure, but not sure of the vacuum pressure.

Do the palm test. to see how resistant it is to crush proof.

I not a TM mechanic or do I know much about that hose.

I can not help ya with proper advice excpt to relace hose with the same hose made for vacuum pressure that can handle mild chemicals

Your hose marking.

I just checked my Hm 45 blower and it has the wired hose. I wouldn't take a chance, having the wireless hose collapse and causing tank or blower problems. That 47 blower has a lot of suck power. There's a reason the manufacturer uses them.

I can say without question that this hose will hold up. I have used spiral wound clear blower discharge hose that stands up under vacuum as well.

no warranty left on machine and don't mind getting new hose with wire if its a must have. have this hose and wanted to just do some maintenance on equipment this weekend. the hose on has a small dentation/callaps look on the small bend as the tank and blower are slightly offset. its been on for 11 years. the calaps/dentation bothers me and not sure I could go the pvc route due to offset.

The hose without the wire will collapse in on the vacuum side of the blower ( between blower and tank). You really need the wire reinforced hose or some hard plumbing like mentioned about the PVC above.

The hose you have there would be ok on the exhaust side going from the blower to the silencer.

Todd is absolutely correct, the hose will collapse on the vacuum side without the wire.

My best guess is it will hold up just fine. As vacuum is applied evenly over the entire surface area of the inside of the hose. Thus using the principles of the arch and the vacuum will support that arch because it is never ending. In other words a circle. Do not crush the hose or kink it when installing as that will damage the never ending arch. Also there is very little heat on the inlet side of a blower and that is contained to the fitting threaded into the blower.
